What We Do - By Equipment

We're pleased to say we've supplied a wide variety of equipment to manufacturing industries.

If you don't match up with any of these equipment categories, just give us a shout.

We're always happy to chat and just might be able to help.

 

 

Bin Handling

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 a high number of recipes and need quick changeover.

Matcon

Bucket Elevators
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.

KWS

Bulk Bag Loading & Unloading

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 stations help to safely package bulk materials into these 1 ton bags.

Flexicon

Cleaning Equipment

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.

Coarse Crushing

There has always been a need crushing big things into smaller pieces - stones, ore, ice, grain and more. Coarse crushers such as our impact crushers, cage mills, hammer mills and lump breakers are integral to this process and ultimately make it easier to further process your materials.

Cone Valve - Manual (MCV)

Specifically designed to help customers in the Food, Beverage and Chemical sectors overcome the problems of mix segregation that are commonly associated with butterfly valve IBCs.

WHAT IS a MATCON MANUAL CONE VALVE?
Discharge Aids

Discharge aids are used to help encourage the flow of bulk material out of a collection hopper or silo. Air sweeps, Vibrators are examples of how to help keep the flow going.

Dust Collection & Air Filtration

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.

Schenck Process

Explosion Protection

Some dry bulk solids like sugar and grain dust are highly explosive. Explosion vents help vent an explosion to a safe destination (outdoors, away from workers), while explosion suppression equipment sends a chemical into the process to extinguish a fire ball, keeping the plant environment safe.

Fans & Blowers

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.  Industrial fans can also be used for heating, cooling, and odor control.

Feeding

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).

Schenck Process

 

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.

Fittings

A good fittings system will keep your production areas cleaner, saving you valuable time, money and provide a better environment for staff.  We offer the best flexible fittings system on the market!

Gate Valves - Titan Series

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.

Gate Valves - Quantum Series

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.

Liquid Process

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.

Loading Solutions

Our retractable loading spouts are often used in railcar, truck, ship, barge and stockpile loading. These are designed to capture dust, prevent material from being wasted, and ensure plant safety.

Magnetic Separation

Magnetic separation is required when trying to separate ferrous materials (with iron content) from a product stream. This is often seen in the construction & demolition, mining, and recyling sectors. This can help recover metal, as well as protect downstream equipment from costly damages.

Metal Detection

Metal detectors are used to detect any metal contaminants in a product stream, or protect downstream equipment from costly damage.

Mixing

Industrial mixers are larger version of the blenders you use at home. They take dry ingredients and mix them based on a preset time to achieve a homogeneous blend.

Pneumatic Conveying

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.

Schenck Process

 

Rotary Valves

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.

Schenck Process

Sampling

These samplers automatically inject a tube in a process stream to collect a sample which gets reviewed by a companies Quality Assurance group. This is the cleanest way of extracting samples from a product stream.download

Screening

Screening equipment is used to separate materials based on their size, or as a means of policing for contaminants in a product stream.RussellFinex logo

Screw Conveying - Flexible

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.

Screw Conveying - Rigid

Commonly used in many material transfer systems, rigid screw conveyors offer a proven and economical way to move dry product from one place to another. These units can be shafted or shaftless

KWS

 

Screw Conveying - Thermal

Thermal Screw Processors are designed to provide cooling or heating of bulk materials. Typical applications include cooling boiler ash, cooling dried biosolids and preheating powders. Heat is transferred to or from bulk materials by indirect heat transfer.

Sorting Equipment

Sensor based sorting equipment is used to sort by colour and size, where most other forms or seperation equipment cant be used efficiently.

Storage Solutions

Large storage tanks (silos) are used a lot in dry and liquid process to store and contain a very high volume of material safely and efficiently for plants across North America.

Vibratory Equipment

Some material is too abrasive to convey in a screw or pneumatically. This is where vibratory equipment comes in. Less moving parts offers more efficiency for your process.
