IN THIS ISSUE • N O V E M B E R 2 01 8 Vol. 36, No. 12 Lightweight Food-Grade Vibrators Martin Vibration Systems & Solutions (MVSS) introduces a series of food-grade pneumatic vibrators that enhance movement of moist, powdered, granular, or pelleted material through small hoppers, bins, and tubes. The Bantam Series offers powerful vibra- tion and versatility in a small package. The low-noise, linear units are washdown-safe and are purpose built for sanitary applications. They are engineered to endure con- tinuous use, even at high and low ambient temperatures (32°-140°F). Operating lubrication free with a low air con- sumption results in consistent bulk material flow with less downtime, at a lower cost of operation.

Page 30 Chem Storage Scrubbers Tri-Mer Corp. introduces standard line of packed tower scrubbers for handling fumes from the venting of bulk stor- age tanks, and the off-gases vented during tank filling. Chemical Storage Tank scrubbers (CST scrubbers or vent- ing scrubbers) are packed towers that reduce emissions of hazardous or corrosive vapors. The systems use Tri- Packs tower packing, which provides maximum surface contact between gas and scrubbing liquid. This optimizes scrubbing efficiency and minimizes the depth of packing depth needed for effective operation. Tri-Mer Corp., Owosso, MI 989-723-7838 www.tri-mer.com
