Sufficient Stock at Lower Cost

Radar level measurement - the sophisticated base for automated inventory control
Reducing the Cost of Carrying ‘Safety Stocks'
Keeping stock of bulk materials is a costly undertaking, but a necessity to ensure continuously ongoing production. Accurate level measurement can improve inventory reporting and reduce safety stocks of bulk solids, helping companies meet financial targets, reduce costs and increase sales.

Looking to the long Haul

The recent additions to RJT Excavations’ fleet are a 50 tonne EC480E excavator and an L180H loading shovel, both of which have been assigned to the company’s contract crushing division.
Contract Crushing
RJT Excavations Ltd of Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders has chosen to opt for new equipment from Volvo Construction Equipment based on the overall total cost of ownership for its plant fleet. The recent additions to RJT Excavations’ fleet are a new 50 t Volvo EC480E excavator rigged for mass excavation and an L180H loading shovel complete with a 4.6 m³ rehandling bucket, both of which have been assigned to the company’s contract crushing division.

How to divide a Pneumatic Conveying Stream

Fig. 1: Splitters distribute pneumatic conveying streams to numerous outlets.
Pneumatic Conveying Lines
Splitter for continuous distribution of bulk solid material during pneumatic conveyance - dimensioning, calculation, operating behaviour. Worldwide, a great number of so-called splitters are in operation as elements of pneumatic conveying lines, in order to continuously distribute the conveyed bulk material to several receiving stations. These splitters have taken an important position within the pneumatic conveying systems and are applied in different designs. But there is not much literature available dealing with the phenomenon “splitter”, and providing assistance regarding application possibilities, dimensioning, selection and experiences during operation. The available literature mostly deals with answers to specific questions, like for example pressure losses in various ramifications, etc.

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.
