Detect Plugged Chutes, Prevent Downtime, The Easy Way
Bulk material backs up in a chute. Production stops. Maintenance can’t clear it. Time ticks.

The company lost out in material loss, production, labor, late deliveries, and more. The story’s real, and worst of all, reputation was damaged due to delays.

Seven Things to Consider When Improving Moisture Control in Food Production
In the manufacture of foodstuffs, getting the moisture content right is paramount.

Too little moisture in the ingredients and the product might go stale too quickly or have an incorrect consistency.

Too much moisture content and certain foods could develop moulds.

Selecting Electromagnetic Vibratory Feeders for Food Applications
Vibratory feeding equipment can efficiently handle a broad range of food products, such as fine powders, tacky and granular materials, and bulk products.

Feeders are also used to assist in adding ingredients to mixers and blenders, metering to downstream process equipment, screening oversized or fine debris from final products, and sprinkling salt, sugar, or various seasonings.

Arresting Fugitive Dusts
The use of vacuum conveyors to transfer materials between processes improves indoor air quality while increasing efficiency and the bottom line.

Most often when hearing the term fugitive dust, one thinks of combustible fugitive dust; however, fugitive dust is simply particulate matter that becomes entrained in ambient air (usually by wind or human interaction).

Moisture Measurement Systems Automate the Process
Reducing front-end expenses and increasing quality and efficiency has always been a top priority for producers, highlighting the need for companies to thoroughly evaluate their current methods of reducing waste – wasted efforts, wasted energy and wasted product. Evaluating and implementing lean manufacturing principles assists in eliminating waste and improving overall plant production.

Thayer Scale Sanitary Loss-in-Weight Feeder for Precise and Reliable Ingredient Delivery
Off-spec finished product caused by inconsistent ingredient delivery, and resultant inaccuracies in ingredient inventories represent significant cost impact for food processors.

Design Features that Increase Product Mixing Efficiency, Profitability
Industrial mixers are essential for the processing of powders, pastes, and liquids in industries such as chemicals, plastics, paints, food, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals.

However, selecting the right mixer for an application can be difficult. There are different types of mixers such as fluidized zone, plow, paddle, ribbon, or sigma.
