Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) are used to store, transport and process bulks. These patented IBCs are great for flow issues such as bridging, blocking and blend segregation. They are ideal for customers with high number of recipes and need quick changeover.
Bucket elevators offer one of the most efficient methods to elevate bulk materials vertically. This consists of a series of buckets attached to a belt or chain with pulleys or sprockets, and enclosed with a housing or casing to contain the material.
Many bulk material ingredients are handled in bulk bags (or super sacs). Bulk Bag Unloaders help to safely remove all of the contents from the bag so it can then be further processed. Bulk Bag filling units help to safely package bulk materials into these 1 ton bags.
These automated washing systems are used in the pharma and food sectors where cleanability and hygiene is of utmost importance. And now in more and more facilities since the pandemic as well. They can clean bins/storage tanks, as well as product components to ensure cleanliness.
Dust collection is vital in every manufacturing operations’ overall safety. Dust collection systems have pick up points that collect dust that otherwise become airborne and into the factory atmosphere while handling. Sometimes the collected dust is valuable and can be of further use.
With regards to dry bulk process, fans and blowers are used to either push, suck or blow air and/or dry product through an enclosed system. They are frequently used in pneumatic/vacuum conveying systems.
Feeders are used to accurately meter a certain amount of product into a batch or continuous process at a fixed rate. This can be done volumetrically (each screw rotation displaces a fixed volume of product) or gravimetrically (through loss in weight).
Adhesives and sealants are comprised of a wide variety of liquids, pastes, powders, granules, and solid melt ready materials. Most applications incorporate some amount of liquids and solids passing through a mixing or extrusion process to form a custom mixture specific to each product. Getting those materials into and away from the mixing or extrusion process in a clean, timely, and accurate manner is important.
Schenck Process has years of industry experience handling raw ingredients and additives for manufacturing adhesives and sealants. Whether it is material unloading, pneumatic conveying, receiving and storage, precision feeding, dust collection, size reduction or screening, Schenck Process has the system to meet your specific needs and all of it can be combined into one system by our project management team.
Volumetric, gravimetric – free to moderate flowing bulk solids
The cost-efficient feeding solution for free to moderately flowing bulk solids does not make any compromises when it comes to performance. Customised for the application, it feeds reliably and extremely accurately with a value of over +/- 0.5%, with excellent feeding constancy within the same accuracy range. The unique design of the Coni-Flex flexible feed hopper, with its axially symmetrical container inlet, flexible wall and external discharging aid, ensure a reliable product flow into the feed hopper – thus ensuring excellent feeding quality without bridging and deposits.
Easy, time-saving product changes The system can easily be disassembled and assembled by just one person. If a product needs to be changed, the parts in contact with the product are simply exchanged from the rear and cleaned. The front process side can therefore be ignored.
Advantages which pay off Its small size, coupled with wiring with clear, calculable investment costs and easy servicing thanks to the integrated DISOCONT® feeding and control electronics system as in the MechaTronic version.
Fine Grinding & Milling
These mills are used to take a coarse product and grind it down to a finer powder. These mills cater to applications where temperature control (because grinding creates heat), and end particle size are of utmost importance.
Titan series slide gates are used in gravity or pneumatic process applications to control the flow of heavy duty and abrasive material in nature such as clinker, cement, fly ash, sand, and gravel, . These heavy duty valves are designed to be serviced in line without having to remove the valve, minimizing downtime.
Quantum series slide gates are used in gravity or pneumatic process applications to control the flow of material such as granules, powders, and pellets. These valves are also maintenance friendly and can be serviced in line without having to remove the valve. Our seals help extend the life of the valve which gives us an advantage over the competition.
Most liquid equipment runs more efficiently without solids in the steam. Liquid screeners are used to ensure that solid contaminants can easily be removed from a liquid process, which eliminates the need for production stoppages.
With no mechanically moving parts, pneumatic conveying is often used in many dry material applications. This type of system is comprised of a blower, filter, receiver, piping and discharge points. Pneumatic conveying can achieve conveying to distances and configurations that other conveying equipment cannot.
Rotary valves are used to control flow of a material in a process, as well as to lock out air from being circulated to parts of a system. This eliminates dusting and keeps maintenance and shutdown costs down.
Commonly used in many material transfer systems, screw conveyors offer a proven and economical way to move dry product from one place to another. We offer flexible units which have the ability to bend, as well as shafted and shaftless rigid conveyors that are engineered to order.
