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.
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.
The extensive dedusting and industrial air filtration products from Schenck Process have been designed to meet increasingly stringent global regulations and to safeguard plant air quality.
Based on the Mac Process portfolio of dust collectors, which have been successfully cleaning industrial air in the USA for over 50 years, the products include bag and cartridge filter media suitable for a broad range of airflows, dust loads, particle sizes and applications.
The product range has been designed to offer the customer unrivalled operational flexibility, including the option of circular or square housings and top or side access for filter media changing, to suit process requirements or space limitations.
The industrial filtration range includes:
Energy saving filters using medium pressure air – the MCF PowerSaver range
Medium to high pressure filter with easy access – the Vertical Cartridge Filter (VCF)
High efficiency modular cartridge filters – the Mac2Flo range
Low profile, compact filter designs – the Mac SpaceSaver range
Nine different types of Pulse Jet filters for use with bag or cartridge filter media
Products available in a choice of four formats from clean air plenum only, to clean air plenum, filter body and bottom product receiver hopper for conveying applications.
A breakdown of the filtration products by appropriate market or industry:

With extensive test data gathered over the last 50 years and covering more than 600 different materials, the configuration of filter type and filter media provided by Schenck Process will be designed to provide industry-leading performance and to meet the most stringent regulatory and environmental requirements. Our Filtration TestCenter features a Particulate Emission Test (PET) Machine that is unequaled in the industry and allows us to offer comprehensive design information and supports our written certification of particulate emissions.
Some dry bulk solids like sugar and grain dust are highly explosive. Explosion vents help vent an explosion to 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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
