  • Case Study: Working Together To Solve A Feeding Problem
    Case Study: Working Together To Solve A Feeding Problem Pfizer Inc., headquartered in New York, produces human and animal prescription medicines for national and international markets. One of the company’s global research and development centers, located in Ann Arbor, Mich., operates a pharmaceutical sciences pilot plant in nearby Holland, Mich., that produces preproduction quantities of various products for testing before full-scale production at other facilities. The pilot plant was experiencing an ongoing problem manually feeding a range of solid materials into various-sized inerted reaction vessels that contained a solvent. By Schenck AccuRate
  • Case Study: Packaging Companies Discover Efficiency, Cost Savings And Increased Production Available Through Pneumatic Conveying

    With today's economic pressures, more plant managers and others charged with conveying powders, granular items, and flakes for packaging are adopting the automatic operation of vacuum conveying and packaging equipment as standards to hit critical price points for market success.

  • Automation Optimizes Fuel Supply
    Automation Optimizes Fuel Supply

    Without concrete, our modern life is not conceivable. It is a versatile construction material – on land, on water, and when necessary even at dizzying heights. The base material cement is a decisive factor in the use of concrete, for example for roads, bridges, tunnels and towers – the construction material concrete has many potential applications and guarantees that construction components and structures are highly durable. To continue its success, a cement plant turned to modern weighing technology for its production processes.

  • Blender Loading System Upgrade Meets New Production Requirements

  • New Blade Design Gives Double Planetary Mixer A Bright Future In this age of technological marvels and Internet madness, it's refreshing to see an innovation that isn't the product of an exotic new technology.
  • Ultra-High Shear Mixing Strategies For Manufacturers

    This white paper presents four advanced rotor/stator technologies for ultra-high shear mixing of fine dispersions, emulsions, and other applications beyond the capabilities of traditional single and multi-stage rotor/stator devices.

  • Pneumatic Conveyor Provides Competitive Edge For New Bio Based Detergent Expansion
    Pneumatic Conveyor Provides Competitive Edge For New Bio Based Detergent Expansion

    Sticky powders present manufacturers and processors with unique material conveying challenges involving volumetric auger fillers that dispense powders, granulars, and flakes for packaging. This article demonstrates how a proprietary vacuum conveying design prevents a sticky material handling problem. 

  • Bag Handling, Check Sieving, Weigh System
    Bag Handling, Check Sieving, Weigh System In this installation, materials are received in 50-pound bags and semi-bulk bags and are security screened for foreign objects while being conveyed to a weigh hopper, where they are automatically hatched in predetermined weights and discharged into process drums
  • Loss-In-Weight Feeders Produce Only Gains

    A polymer services company installs several load-cell-based loss-in-weight feeders to automate its ingredient-feeding process and eliminate problems caused by manually handling and feeding the ingredients. By Schenck AccuRate

  • Case Study: Bulk Bag Unloader Facilitates Safe Handling Of Toxic Materials
    Case Study: Bulk Bag Unloader Facilitates Safe Handling Of Toxic Materials Several years ago, the ITT Surprenant Division in Clinton, MA, now the Surprenant Wire and Cable Division of FL Industries, faced a major materials handling problem
