As the economy continues to be erratic, companies are resorting to retrofitting existing equipment. Retrofitted equipment can perform reliably if done properly.

Material is received from a bucket elevator, conveyed along the length of the central conveyor, and elevated and discharged onto a cross belt conveyor.

It offers precise feeding for almost any plastics machine, including injection molding, blow molding, and extrusion. Read more on page 23 Rotary Valve for High-Volume Material Throughput The CDC-CI Series of rotary valves is designed specifically for bulk material processing and production applications where high-volume material throughput is required, and where upstream and downstream equipment configurations dictate a drop-in-type valve profile. To enable this high-volume material throughput, the CDC-CI Series rotary valve features an enlarged housing barrel. The CDC-CI barrel is cast wider and taller within its valve housing profile than are the barrels of conventional rotary valves. The large barrel-to-housing proportion ensures the dimensions of the CDC-CI Series housing profile remain consistent with industry-standard dimensions.

Read more on page 10 The quick clean orifice gate, a sanitary gravity valve, now offers improved sealing performance, higher durability, easier maintenance, and fewer replacement parts. The Vortex Quick Clean gate is designed to handle dry bulk ingredients in the food, dairy, pharmaceutical, chemical, and other industries that require frequent or daily sanitation of equipment. The blade and seal design allows the valve to "self-clean" on the opening stroke, even on a flowing column of material, preventing material from packing on the valve's internal seals. The gate has been redesigned to have no dead pockets or hidden areas that can lead to material spoilage or cross contamination.
