Custom Gear Units Drive Log Washers

Known as log shafts, from which the log washers take their name, the steel shafts are aligned parallel to each other within the box, and as they turn the paddles intermesh.
Drive System Components
Renold Gears has designed a heavy-duty, custom gearbox solution for a manufacturer of a special type of coarse material washers known as log washers. Effectively these are huge rectangular boxes, or troughs, usually fabricated from steel plate, containing two steel shafts with paddles attached along their length. They are commonly used for washing and sizing cemented aggregates, gravel, various ores and limestone etc.

New Integrated Drive System with compact, space-saving Design

The compact design of the Planurex 3 enables space-saving, high transmission ratios to be achieved.
Planetary Gear Unites
Siemens has widened its portfolio of planetary gear units. The Planurex 3 is available in ten sizes, with a torque range from 1700 to 5450 kNm. The size grading is harmonized to reduce the jump in power ratings between different sizes. This makes a suitable torque and a suitable transmission ratio available for almost every application.

Bulk Flow Analyst new Features include improved Custom Cluster Definition

Starting in Bulk Flow Analyst version 15.0, users can define multiple cluster shapes in a material condition, much in the same way Custom size-distribution is used.
DEM Simulation Software
The latest Version of "Bulk Flow Analyst", the DEM Simulation Software by Applied DEM, Inc., features some major improvements to both the custom clusters and the particle blocks. Each has been upgrades to allow more customizable information as well as make it easier for the user to add these features to their simulation. The Motion Manager was also re-introduced in version 15 with a more advanced control system.

ABB Automation boosts Productivity at Swedish Mine

Boliden and ABB completed the USD 580 million project at Garpenberg on time and on budget in mid-2014.
Mining Automation
ABB, the power and automation group, has deployed a tailored technological solution to transform Boliden AB’s Garpenberg mine in central Sweden into one of the most-efficient and productive mines in the world. Autonomous processes stretching a kilometer underground are unified in a single system driving efficiency and productivity to the next level. Boliden transformed the mine over four years in close cooperation with ABB, building on the principles of the Internet of Things, Services and People.

Transmitter/Intelligent Junction Box for Remote Scale System Monitoring

According to Transcell Technology, the LCT-2 transmitter/intelligent junction box costs about 50% less than the combination of separate devices.
Weight Measurement
Transcell has announced a digital weight transmitter, combined with an intelligent junction box, for high-speed, individual monitoring of up to four individual load cells. The unit is able to measure and transmit filtered weight data to a programmable logic controller (PLC) or other compatible host device, via Modbus protocol or Ether- Net/IPprotocol.

3D Solids Scanners for accurate continuous Level and Volume Measurement

Emerson’s Rosemount 3D Solids Scanners provide level, volume and mass measurement of bulk solids and powders.
Level Measurement
Emerson Process Management developed the Rosemount 5708 Series of 3D Solids Scanners for the continuous measurement of level, volume and mass of bulk solids and powders in large vessels, bins and silos. The new series uses acoustic measurement and 3D mapping technologies to provide accurate and reliable results even when measuring uneven or sloping surfaces under dusty conditions.
