Weighing in Motion

The BS143 model weighs three idlers on an inner frame that is supported by four load cells. This makes it the most accurate belt scale from Rice Lake Weighing Systems and is particularly qualified for higher capacities and high belt speeds.
Belt Scales
Established in 1946 as a repair shop for scales, mainly from the prevalent dairy industries, Rice Lake extended its portfolio with weighing equipment, like belt scales. Today they offer all kinds of scales all over the world. The article describes how to optimize a belt scale system by choosing the right indicator for particular application.

“Clean” Recycling with Atomized Dust Suppression

RAI has successfully employed an atomized mist system to suppress dust in and around its Chula Vista plant.
Dust Control
Reducing the need to landfill huge amounts of reusable debris from road repair includes the processing of these materials during which a great amount of dust is produced. A California company solved its dust problems with an special water mist generator. At first, the company tried to reduce the amount of dust with a sprinkler system. But that just saturated the material and creating a lot of mud, whereas the dust still remained an issue.

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.

Material Buildup? Blow it away!

With the new air cannon network in place, the Louisville plant has been able to significantly reduce the need for water blasting. Material now flows more efficiently, and maintenance personnel have drastically reduced the man-hours that were spent on manual removal.
Flow Activation
An American cement producer faced severe problems of material buildup in his preheater. Manual hydro-lancing meant process disruptions. With a new air cannon network now in place, the need for water blasting has been significantly reduced, material flows more efficiently, and maintenance personnel have drastically reduced the man-hours that were spent on manual removal.

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.

Metso to supply Equipment to Boliden's Aitik Copper Mine in Sweden

Metso and Boliden have cooperated since the 1960s. Previous deliveries to Aitik include two autogenous mills, which, at that time, were the largest ever supplied by Metso.
Surface Crushing Station
Boliden has selected Metso to supply equipment for a new surface crushing station at the Aitik copper mine in northern Sweden. The supply consists of two primary gyratory crushers, two rock breakers, two apron feeders, chutes, conveyors, spare & wear parts, engineering and installation. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The order is included in Metso's Q3 orders received.

Return Idler Cages – Cost-Effective Solutions for a safer Work

Belt Conveyor Safety
One of the most easily preventable conveyor accident sources is a dislodged return idler falling onto an unsuspecting worker. Misaligned belts often come into contact with return idler brackets, shearing them off and allowing the idler to break free. Return idler cages are a cost-effective solution to protect workers against such risk.
