Variations of the Paravisc modular mixing system from Ekato Corp. are being used for the production of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, gels, toothpastes, shampoos, and foodstuffs as well as paste-like products such as adhesives, paints, and building materials.
Nanomaterial manufacturer nGimat may have accidentally found a solution to some of industry's biggest environmental problems. The company's ionic liquid solvents, stumbled upon during non-related precursor work, are now being developed to make industrial processes run cleaner and consume less energy.
Manufacturers do not need reminding that in today's litigious and safety conscious climate, a solid metal detection process is crucial. As they strive for greater automation and uptime, compliance with legislation and good manufacturing practice (GMP), manufacturers want a metal detector that does more than just prevent contamination.
Like a conventional vibratory conveyor, the Slipstick horizontal-motion conveyor is a rigid pan design that moves bulk material by applying periodic motion to the product.
Available with manual or electric drive, these stackers allow workers to lift, transport, and position up to 3,000 pounds at a time.
This automated bulk bag filling system is engineered to increase productivity while maximizing the output of dense, stable filled bags.
The P-333 Ship Shape bulk forklift container, which features an optional hinged panel, opens on one side to promote easy access to goods for fast, ergonomically sound order picking and assembly operations and seals shut for secure lifting and transportation.
Types WL-2 and WL field-proven lock-out relays (LORs) can be used to automatically trip and lock out circuit breakers and other devices, protecting this critical equipment from damaging electrical faults.
The AEGIS SGR conductive microfiber shaft grounding ring is suitable for predictive and preventive maintenance programs on VFD-controlled AC motors and large DC motors.
The Series PRA pneumatically controlled pressure regulator, also known as a pressure reducing valve, maintains a constant downstream pressure from 5 to 125 psi with very high accuracy over varying flow rates.
The Dyna-Purge Division of Shuman Plastics Inc., Buffalo, NY, has introduced its new Dyna-Purge M grade.
