Air-powered stainless steel vibrating tables are used to settle solids in sludge stored in 55 gallon steel drums. The customer wanted to remove excess moisture from the solids. Upon vibrating the drum, solids move to the bottom of the drum and the moisture is separated to the top of the drum, where it can be removed before the lid is secured.
Wooden shipping pallets are shredded, ground up, and conveyed to a storage pile using a belt conveyor. An overhead self-cleaning magnet can be used over the belt conveyor to remove tramp metal, staples and nails before the material is fed onto the pile. The magnet can be designed to fit conveyor belt width and speed.
The CBE Model 730 Pressure Flow Air Valve Bagging Machine is used for bagging mineral powders, mortar mixes, or food products into valve bags with internal spouts. Types of powders can include cement powder, specialty chemical powders, bentonite, barite, sodium bicarbonate, limestone powder, and mortar mixes. This bagging machine can also be used for food products like flour and cake mixes.

The operator, or automated bag placer, spouts the valve bag onto the machine. Then, compressed air forces the powder material from a hopper above the bagging machine into the bag. When the valve bag is filled to a set weight, it drops away onto a take away conveyor.
A commercial waste recycling system was designed to improve the recovery rate of OCC, or Old Corrugated Cardboard, at a transfer station. The owner was recovering OCC cardboard from a tipping floor processing mixed loads of commercial waste. Recovery of the OCC was a slow and dangerous process with sorters on the tipping floor.
The bag is clamped onto the outlet spout of the machine. When the start button is pressed, the coarse solar salt is conveyed into the bag at full flow. When the contents of the bag get close to the target fill weight, the auger and conveyor slow down the flow to a dribble. When the target weight has been reached, the bag clamp is released and the bag drops so it can be picked up for sealing.
Curved vibrating conveyors can be used to meter, sort, or align bulk material in a processing system. The material exiting the conveyor will be in a single or double line for the next stage in the process.
In the picture shown below, the conveyor lines up 18 inch by 12 inch, 35 pound metal plates into a single file line to convey under a camera for inspection.
They are also used to convey bulk solids for a wide array of applications including aggregates, minerals, rebar, sand, coal, ash, ore, castings, molds, pharmaceuticals, and food products. Standard sizing options are available, as well as custom-engineered products tailored to fit specific customer requirements.
This robotic palletizer can palletize bags at rates up to 30 bags per minute. It is also capable of placing pallets, as well as slip sheets on the pallets. It is ideal for handling multiple packaging lines at the same time and can yield the highest return on investment. It can be designed around your plant layout with our standard bag filling line components.
