Powder & Bulk Solids 4 Editor'sChoice J u n e 2 0 1 8 Visualization Technology Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) introduces a control technol- ogy solution that increases produc- tivity for batch operations and speed-to-market of batch prod- ucts by allowing operators to "look ahead" into their processes and see an intuitive and comprehensive timeline of every task required to complete a product batch. Honeywell's Experion Batch, uses patent-pending visual- ization technology to provide batch automation processes with the benefi ts of distributed control capability. This approach provides operators with insights into upcoming events or potential delays, which make it easier for them to conduct multiple tasks, take appropriate actions sooner and adjust next steps accordingly. It also makes operations less critically dependent on individual operator experience, which will help manufacturers overcome skill gaps at a time when more veteran operators are retiring. Honeywell Process Solutions, Houston, TX 832-252-3500 www.honeywellprocess.com Belt Scale Integrator The 882D belt scale integrator offers multiple benefi ts, including multiple interfaces for PLC integration, cus- tomized programming, and view processes. Specifi cally designed with belt scales in mind, the 882D belt scale integrator collects, displays and controls required data, making it ideal for many applications including min- ing, quarries, bulk material blending, process control, and truck, barge, or rail load-out applications. The 882D integrator features a backlit display, making it convenient to view rate, speed, and time in virtually any lighting condition. With iRite programmability, the 882D is able to be customized for each specifi c application. It offers network connectivity and fi eldbus protocol capabilities. An IP66 stainless steel enclosure protects it from the ele- ments, for safe use in harsh environments. Rice Lake Weighing Systems, Rice Lake, WI 715-736-6441 www.ricelake.com High-Capacity Gyratory Sifters The Atlas gyratory sifter line is SWECO's largest, offering high-capacity screening in a low-maintenance, operator-friendly design. The horizontal, uniform gyratory motion of the Atlas provides high performance, resulting in sharper separations, higher volume, excellent screen cleaning, low dynamic force, and high material spread-ability. Ideal for a wide range of industries including chemical, food, plas- tics, agriculture, and minerals, it is available in 33 versatile confi gurations with up to 12 screens, ranging from 32 to 792 sq ft of screening area. Engineered for maximum uptime and ease of use, each confi guration incor- porates a lubricated for life drive system and basket hangers. Additionally, each Atlas model integrates the patented QuickChange technology, allowing for one- minute screen changes that can be performed from either the feed or the discharge end of the machine. SWECO, Florence, KY 859-283-8400 www.sweco.com Low-Profile Bulk Bag Filler with Explosion-Proof Controls Flexicon introduces a Twin-Centerpost bulk bag fi ller with XP controls and reduced height posts for low-headroom applica- tions. It is equipped with a manual fi ll head height adjustment to accommo- date smaller bag sizes, pneumatically retractable bag hooks, an infl atable con- nector to seal the bag inlet spout, and a feed chute outlet port for dust-free air displacement during fi lling. A NEMA 7/9 explosion- proof electrical system controls the automated vibratory densifi cation/ deaeration deck, which stabilizes the bag for storage and shipment. The dual-post frame is a patented design that maximizes strength and improves accessibility to bag hooks while simplifying construction and reducing cost. It is constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coating, with product contact surfaces of stainless steel. Also available in all-stainless construction fi nished to sanitary standards, it is the fi rst bulk bag fi ller to receive USDA acceptance. Flexicon Corp., Bethlehem, PA 888-353-9426 www.fl exicon.com Hygienic Conical Top Cyclone The Schenck Process Hygienic Conical Top (HCT) cyclone fulfi lls the requirements for use in highly sanitary applications in industries such as food, pet food, and beverage. HCT cyclones are capable of handling heavy dust loads and are good spark arrestors. Additionally, they are ideal for human/pet food applications where high moisture and high fat content are commonly used in equipment confi gura- tions that include dryers and coolers, coating drums for fl avors, centrifuge exhausts, and extruder negative airlift systems. HCT cyclones incorporate sanitary design features by minimiz- ing internal and external horizontal surfaces where product or water may collect. Sanitary, infi nitely adjustable clamped connections have replaced bolted fl anges. This improves installation versatility while eliminating hard to clean external harborage points.
