Breakthrough product award for Vortex Chute Diverter

Vortex Pivoting Chute Diverter (PCD) has been named as one of Processing magazine’s “Breakthrough Products for 2016”.

Vortex developed the gravity-flow PCD for abrasive materials such as industrial sand, limestone, coal, gypsum, clinker, gravel, bauxite, whole grains, and minerals.  The diverter body houses an internal chute that pivots to direct the material flow.  The main advantage of the PCD is that there are no internal seals to maintain. The chute addresses material abrasion and can be constructed of, or lined, with wear resistant materials e.g. chromium carbide, abrasion-resistant steel, or ceramic.

Inspection, maintenance, or repairs to the diverter may be performed from the front access panel – without removing the diverter from service. The PCD is dust-tight to atmosphere, may be shifted “on-the-fly”, and is available in 2-way and 3-way configurations. The chute may be positioned to split flow to both directions simultaneously.

Enge Plas Malaysia - MTI C tec PRO, batch mixing tool in automatic container mixer system, batch mixing robots

Batch mixing without downtime? MTI has a revolutionary solution

MTI C tecPRO – the revolution of the conventional concept in batch mixing and the new benchmark for efficiency and so far unrivalled flexibility. The six axes of the robot allow almost any motion of the mixing container, even for processes without rotating mixing tools.

While at previously favoured machines the mixing head is permanently fixed and has to be cleaned manually when changing the product, the MTI C tecPRO never gets into contact with the mixture. A completely closed system is generated through the innovative lid design with integrated mixing shaft which enables various tool configurations. Each new batch can therefore be processed by using individual tools without any manual modification of the machine itself.

As the MTI C tecPRO is never contaminated by the mixing product, the sequence of recipes can be combined individually. From black to white without any downtime of the machine – the MTI C tecPRO marks the new status quo.

If you like to know more about this revolutionary mixer, you can visit MTI or

Enge Plas-Coperion K-Tron Logo

Coperion: New developments for high-accuracy feeding and conveying

Innovative Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) system for high-accuracy Coperion K-Tron loss-in-weight feeders

Coperion K-Tron has developed a unique new Electronic Pressure Compensation (EPC) system for their high-accuracy loss-in-weight feeders. The main advantages of the new system include improved accuracy and reliability as well as lower initial cost and easier installation compared to traditional mechanical pressure compensation systems. Coperion K-Tron has developed a clever but simple electronic solution for accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers and outlets. The modular design incorporates pressure sensors and electronics tailored to interact smoothly with Coperion K-Tron’s KCM feeder control system. Retrofitting options for existing feeders are available. EPC can be installed on a majority of Coperion K-Tron gravimetric feeders in almost any application and all industries.

In a closed feeding system, pressure build-up inside a feeder can significantly impair weighing accuracy. The commonly installed mechanical pressure compensation systems are sensitive to structural factors and machine alignment and may therefore be intricate or even unreliable. Coperion K-Tron has now developed a clever but simple electronic solution for accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers. The modular design incorporates pressure sensors and electronics tailored to interact smoothly with Coperion K-Tron’s KCM feeder control system.

Depending on set-up and requirements, sensors can be positioned on the feeder hopper and, if required, on the material discharge tube. The software implements a self-optimizing compensation algorithm for best performance and dynamics identical to those of Coperion K-Tron’s SFT load cells, which allows for highly accurate feeding results, even in systems with perceivable pressure fluctuations. A separate field evaluation kit allows for the assessment of potential pressure issues in existing installations.

Smart Flow Meter for reliable metering, registering or monitoring of bulk material flows

In high rate applications, the Smart Flow Meter provides high accuracy feeding, at feed rates of up to 200,000 dm³/hr (7,000 ft³/hr). In addition to a lower purchase cost than a large loss-in-weight feeder, the Smart Flow Meter offers lower maintenance costs and reduced headroom. Two models are available: K-SFM-275-B and K-SFM-350-B, depending on application requirements.

The Smart Flow Meter is often employed in PE resin pelletizing processes, where it accurately and gently feeds the main component, PE powder, into the pelletizing extruder. Other areas of application include plastics, chemicals, animal feed, cement, coal, glass, aluminum, grain, etc. Typical particle size is approximately 0.02 mm up to 10 mm. The Smart Flow Meter is suitable for free-flowing bulk materials such as powders, granules, chips or fibers.

With no moving parts, the K-SFM has no mechanical impact on the bulk material. The bulk material flows by gravity into the upper measuring channel, an inclined chute mounted on a force transducer where the force, acting perpendicularly on the chute is measured as mass. The bulk material then flows into the lower, vertical channel which determines velocity or acceleration rate. From the signals of these two sensors the flow rate is determined per unit of time.

K-Vision Line Controller maximizes your product quality while minimizing the need for direct supervision

K-Vision™ is a graphical operator interface for controlling up to 16 devices such as feeders or vacuum receivers in a single process line. K-Vision uses a 12.1-inch color LCD display together with a touchscreen as the primary operator input mechanism. It offers a quad screen display mode for viewing multiple pages on one feeder or a single page on multiple feeders. Support for multiple languages is included and additional languages can be added on request.

Designed for simple operation and fast and easy start-up, K-Vision offers graphic visualization of process information, utilizing flexible, easy to use trend graphs. This feeder interface offers event logging and supports all of the different feeding control types for both continuous and batch operation. Easy to maintain, K-Vision software updates are possible by updating files on a compact flash card or by using a USB flash drive.

The K-Vision offers a variety of remote access options. A second K-Vision can be connected via Ethernet as a remote interface for visualization and control of feeder and line parameters. The K-Vision also comes with a VNC server, allowing any VNC client – on a PC, tablet or smartphone – connected to the same network to be used as a secondary user interface.

In addition to the current connectivity options, VNC, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, ModbusTCP, etc. the K-Vision now also has email capability. No optional hardware or software is necessary – it is a new standard feature. The K-Vision HMI can easily be set up to email a notification to one or more persons when key events occur, such as:

  • The compounding line stopped
  • The compounding line started
  • A feeder is running out of product
  • A pneumatic receiver isn’t getting any pellets
  • Notification of a specific alarm

The K-Vision can also be programmed to send log files by e-mail, such as feeder event logs, parameter changes, alarm logs, etc.
