Interface Load Cells and Torque Transducers

Whether you need general purpose, LowProfile or miniature cells for standard or special applications, you don’t have to be an expert in force measurement, because Interface and AMS are. Talk to us about what sort of forces you need to measure, and under what conditions and constraints. We’ll walk you through the load cell specification process, quickly and efficiently, and if we don’t have what you need on the shelf, we’ll be happy to customize an existing product or build a new one from scratch to meet your exacting requirements.

Vortex Commemorates Its Founder and Industry Innovator

SALINA, KAN.– Vortex announces the passing of its founder, Loren Neil Peterson. He was 87. Peterson was very familiar to many in the bulk material handling industry.

Peterson’s career in dry bulk solids began in the 1950s with Salina Manufacturing (now known as Coperion). As a mechanical engineer he developed formulas for conveying material other than flour, which was very unproven at that time. After much experimentation and analysis, he ascertained how to test a gallon-sized sample of product, and scale it up to a full size system. He also invented equipment for the company, including a patent on a “Y” type diverter valve and coupling system with a straight-line layout to reduce pressure losses in pneumatic conveying systems.

Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry Micromeritics Autopore V

Particle & Surface Sciences & Micromeritics Autopore V Mercury Porosimeter is based on the intrusion of mercury into a porous structure under stringently controlled pressures. Besides offering speed, accuracy, and a wide measurement range, mercury porosimetry permits you to calculate numerous sample properties such as pore size distributions, total pore volume, total pore surface area, median pore diameter and sample densities (bulk and skeletal). This instrument also features enhanced safety features and offers new data reduction and reporting choices that provide more information about pore geometry and the fluid transport characteristics of your material.

The system is available in two models,

Vortex Offers Loading Spouts for Dry Bulk

Vortex’s loading spouts are used for loading dry/bulk solid materials into open and/or enclosed vessels like trucks, railcars and barges. The 4-cable lifting design provides maximum stability when compared to the standard 2- or 3-cable systems.

Vortex’s 10-year warranty covers any Vortex loading spout cable that breaks due to friction from the pulley. The 3-piece CNC machined pulley features chamfered edges and precision cable grooves to significantly reduce cable wear and back lashing as the loading spout extends and retracts. Because the cables do not fray, cable failure is nearly eliminated and so is costly downtime for repairs.

Van Beek Lump Breaker Pulverizes Lumps Very Quickly

Van Beek has developed a robust lump breaker for reducing clumps, lumps or agglomerations in the food or chemical industry. For a growing number of manufacturers the lump or clump breaker has now become a vital component at the start of their process line.

The lump breaker can deal effectively with lump formation or agglomerations, for example turning them to powder. Before it passed through the more sensitive machines further on in the process, the lump breaker crushes everything that is bigger than a couple of granules stuck together.

Removing blockages in the process line
This efficient machine has already saved the day for manufacturers in various ways.

Sanitary High Lift Box Tipper with Vibratory Bin Feeder

A new TIP-TITE® Bulk Transfer System from Flexicon moves material from boxes into a mobile bin with vibratory feeder that services multiple downstream processes.

All stainless steel construction allows handling of corrosive materials and/or wash down between runs of contamination-sensitive food, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and chemical products. Castors mounted at the base of the bin allow it to be rolled away from processing areas for a complete wash down.

Boxes measuring 915 to 1220 mm on a side and 990 to 1117 mm in height are loaded at floor level and raised hydraulically to seat against a discharge hood.
