No Big-Bang in Wood Processing

An explosion in a wood processing plant may endanger human lifes and the environment as well as the survival of the plant.
Innovative Explosion Protection for Wood-processing Plants
Since the re-discovery of regenerative energy sources wood processing has seen a considerable growth due to the demand of easy to handle fuel. In view of the ignitability and explosibility of the developing wood dust provisions must be taken to minimize/prevent the impacts of dust explosions.

More efficient Fertilizer Production

Producers all over the world are expanding production  capacities and modernising existing processing facilities.
Dewatering Filter Belts
Phosphorus is one of the most important macronutrients in fertilizers. To cater for the worlds growing demand for fertilizers, producers all over the world expand their production capacity and modernise their existing processing facilities to enhance the effectiveness of their processes, e.g. the dehumidification of the production waste.

No Harm to the Environment

With its ability to navigate curves in three dimensions, the pipe conveyor can be optimally adapted to its transport route.
Pipe Conveyor System
Transportadora Callao S.A., the logistics operator of a special cargo terminal in the port of Callao, Peru, relies on a Beumer Group pipe conveyor for the transportation of zinc, copper and lead
concentrates of different mining companies from the warehouse to the terminal.

Recycling – certainly safely!

Metal is recovered from residues in four melting furnaces.
How to avoid Fires downstream of a “fiery” Process
During the recycling of scrap-metals a certain amount of dust is produced. Especially, when the recycling process involves pyrometallurgical steps there is the risk of glowing embers being transported into the filters, where they may ignite serious fires.

Unproper Belt Scale Results?

Belt Weighing
Belt weighing is common practice in lots of bulk solid handling operations. Although it’s a long established technology, there are still bits and pieces regarding installation and maintenance which might lead to erroneous results. Following you can find the reasons why.

How to Handle the Fire’s Feed

Effective Utilization of Alternative Fuels
During the most recent decades the utilization of (otherwise) waste materials and biomass as alternative fuels in the cement industry and power plants showed great growth figures. However, the low heat values of alternative fuels require larger handling and storage systems that are more flexible. This article shows, how these materials can be handled.

Considerations about the Cost of Conveyor Belting – Discussing re-evaluated Belt Safety Factors

Safety Factors for Conveyor Belts
New conveyor belts and belt monitoring technologies reduce conveyor belt capital and operating costs by using lower belt strengths than previously thought possible. Key factors are improvements in splice performance, rubbers and real-time belt condition surveillance systems.
