Pugmill Mixer Selection Guide

Pugmill mixers during production at Heyl & Patterson.
Mixing & Blending
Pugmill mixers are versatile machines for the mixing of a number of materials and often found in the cement, pottery and ceramics industries. Best-in-class pugmills are able to mix materials into a homogeneous state sometimes in as little as a few seconds. In the following article the author presents several points to ponder when selecting one’s best fitting pugmill.

A mobile Solution for fast, frequent Stockpile Volume Reporting

With I-Site Drive operations can now use the one laser scanner for tripod, vehicle-mounted stop-go, rail or hatch-mounted survey, and continuous survey.
Stockpile Measurement
Maptek has released I-Site Drive to provide mines, quarries and industrial operations with a faster, more accurate system for frequent stockpile volume reporting. I-Site Drive links the laser scanner directly with GPS to generate the stockpile profile as it is circumnavigated. The volume is accurately calculated without estimating or inferring from unknown points.

Low Maintenance, Heavy Duty Screw Conveyor Solutions

RUD screw conveyor systems are used for horizontal, inclined and vertical transportation.
Screw Conveyors
RUD Chains is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of round steel chains, producing components and systems for a wide variety of markets and applications. They offer a range of product solutions to the bulk materials industry, and design, fit and manufacture complete conveyor and drive systems, such as bucket elevators and chain conveyors for bulk materials handling.

Prevent Wear and Material Loss in Conveyor Systems

The PT Pro Belt Trainer belt centring system detects belt misalignment and, when the belt wanders, always guides it back into the correct position. This is achieved by means of the pivot and tilt movement.
Conveyor Belt Training
An important step in preventing material loss from conveyor systems is to correct the guidance of the conveyor belt. Flexco provides various belt centring systems for this purpose – for example the PT Pro Belt Trainer. This detects when the belt is not running true and corrects it. This is achieved by a special feature – when the belt wanders, the pivot and tilt movement always guides it back into the correct position. With this centring system, users therefore not only have significantly less material loss, they also reduce their maintenance costs.

EuroChem Group, Maire Tecnimont, SACE sign MoU for Construction of 5 Plants

In Russia, EuroChem and Maire Tecnimont will work together on three Projects: an ammonia-urea facility in Nevinnomyssk and an ammonia plant in Kingisepp, the latter including an additional Project to integrate urea production.
Ammonia-Urea Plant Projects
EuroChem Group AG, Maire Tecnimont and SACE jointly announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in relation to the construction of five ammonia-urea plants to be commissioned in Russia, the United States and Kazakhstan over the next 10 years. The Projects will provide EuroChem with an additional five million tonnes of ammonia and 7.5 million tonnes of urea capacity per annum.
