Our facility handles sugar, which means that we not only need to maintain an FDA-approved sanitary environment but that we must also prevent potential combustible dust events. Are there seals that we can use to help prevent combustible dust events while adhering to FDA or ATEX standards?

What factors can impact my scale or load cell’s accuracy?

Over time, we’ve experienced valve and gate wear in our facility’s pneumatic conveying system. How can we avoid wear in these gravity-fed system components in the future?

Our plant will soon be handling ingredients to manufacture pet food products. What are the equipment and sanitary requirements we should consider when accommodating this new line?

We have multiple dust collectors, filter-receivers, bins, and silos throughout our facility that handle a mixture of food dust from various processes. We’ve tested these materials and they were all classified as St1* combustible dusts. All of the equipment is properly protected with explosion vents or flameless vents, but we understand that each system will also require explosion isolation to safely protect against a combustible dust explosion. I’m curious as to what isolation options are available for our facility?

How can we be certain the magnets we select meet our contamination mitigation schema?

How can we monitor the rotary valves feeding our pneumatic conveying system for wear?

How can we use an agitator bead mill for nanoparticle dispersion and comminution?

How do fluid-bed processing and vibration enhance drying?

How can we be certain the magnets we select meet our contamination mitigation schema?

With so many possibilities for IoT, what equipment is the highest priority for connecting to the internet?

Our plant handles a cohesive material. How can we choose a feeder that will effectively handle this cohesive material?

What tips can you share to monitor screener capacity for early signs of problems?

How long does it generally take for a bulk bag unloader to pay for itself in terms of automating processes and avoiding costs associated with injuries and workers’ compensation?
