Test center for material handling and flow gives sugar refiner dynamic results
When a refiner needed to know the density of flowing powdered sugar for packaging, a test center assembled a device to obtain the results.
Vibra Screw, Totowa, N.J., manufactures complete dry material handling systems. The company provides tests for material processors who need data on material handling characteristics to aid equipment selection. The company's test center can test equipment for hoppers and feeding, such as bin activators, bulk bag unloaders, volumetric screw and belt feeders, and all types of gravimetric feeders. The center also tests blenders and electronic controls.
