BinMaster introduces the new CVR-625, a compact vibrating rod that is ideal for small bins, hoppers, and feeders. Featuring an overall insertion length of just six inches, it is suitable for space-constrained applications. It can be mounted on the top or side of the bin for high, medium and low level indication. It is easy to install, fitting through a standard 1-1/4" NPT mounting socket and can be used in process temperatures up to 300ºF. It can detect the level of all types of dry solid materials, including very light materials with a bulk density as low as two pounds per cubic foot.

Ross Vacuum-rated High Speed Dispersers are a family of tank-mounted and raisable mixers featuring a laser-cut saw-tooth blade that runs to approximately 5,000 ft/min. Also sometimes called a High Speed Dissolver, this classic workhorse is primarily used to incorporate dry powders into liquid and disperse loosely bound agglomerates. It imparts high levels of shear while producing vigorous flow and rapid turnover of low to medium viscosity dispersions as high as 50,000 centipoise. In most applications, the extent of deagglomeration is further optimized under vacuum conditions which reveal tighter and more uniform particle size distributions in shorter cycle times.
American-Newlong, Inc. 3CM-55 automatic bagging machine for granular and powder products, features a built in impulse sealer for bag top closing located at the filling spout for the most compact fully automated bagger in its class. Built for longevity and reliability while utilizing industry tested bag handling technology.
American-Newlong's NP-3II portable bag closer is specially designed for GeoTextile fabrics, but is commonly used in the bag closing industry. Features a double thread chain stitch, ensuring high strength and a tight closure. This portable bag closer also features automatic thread cutting, shoulder belt spring balancer with hanger and an optional thread cone cover. Industries served include seed, feed and grain, salt, minerals, aggregate products, pet food, chemical and bakery industries.
The Fuji Model EC-61 Robotic Palletizer from American-Newlong delivers a low cost palletizing solution. This robotic palletizer focuses on low speed applications and is the most energy efficient robot in the Fuji line. The EC-61 provides a palletizing capacity of 600 cycles per hour and palletizes bags, cases, pails and other various products. It also has four axes for maximum flexibility.
Spiroflow Systems offers an adjustable Bin Activator to control the discharge of powders & granules. Whether the material comes from a silo or a bulk material handling system, Spiroflow’s Bin Activator effectively alleviates material bridging while controlling flow rates.
Flexicon Corporation is now offering its FLEXI-DISC™ line of Tubular Cable Conveyors for fragile materials, integrated with upstream and/or downstream equipment that sources material from single or multiple locations and delivers it selectively to storage vessels, filling machines or other processing equipment. All equipment is factory-tested for seamless integration with the conveyor and the user's process.The FLEXI-DISC™ conveyor moves material using high-strength polymer discs in 4 in. (10 cm) and 6 in. (15 cm) diameters that are affixed to a stainless steel or galvanized cable. The discs glide within smooth stainless steel tubing, moving fragile products gently, quietly and dust-free, horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings. The system can have single or multiple inlets and outlets, and convey over short distances or hundreds of feet/meters. Modular system components of 304 or 316 stainless steel include tubing, drive wheel housings, tension wheel housings, metered and non-metered inlets, and discharges with and without valves, as well as accessories for wet or dry cleaning, including CIP sanitizing.
ACS Valves introduces a new line of cast iron rotary airlock valves designed to provide to general industry the same primary process optimization benefits typically associated with high-end, specialty-application valve designs. This new line of ACS cast iron rotary airlock valves features the ACS RotorRail™ that enables tool-less access to the rotor and all internal surfaces of the housing without time-consuming disassembly of the rotor, or the removal from service of upstream or downstream equipment commonly associated with standard valve configurations. The ASC cast iron rotary airlock valve with RotorRail™ has shown, when compared to bolt-together housing designs, to reduce rotor service cycle times by 78%; and, as a result, increase total process uptime by 18% during a typical 8-hour operating shift. The ACS RotorRail™ feature of these cast iron valves also ensures accurate rotor re-alignment during re-assembly; thus, eliminating axial shaft movement, bearing wear and seal leakage, and premature, uneven rotor vane wear.
