Rollouts August 2012
MCR Technologies Group, Inc. has two new products available — the Weigh Shark Remote Display 3 and the Weigh Shark Ultra Sonic Scale. The Weigh Shark Ultra Sonic Scale (pictured) uses ultra-sonic sensor technology to measure materials on a conveyor at a high rate of speed with increased accuracy. It is designed for applications not compatible with a standard scale due to vibration, short conveyors with fast belts, and steep angles. The Remote Display 3 allows monitoring of up to 16 scales at a time. The 7-inch LCD monitor has one USB port and three serial ports. The display allows clearing of individual scale totals or all scales at one time.
Alstom Power, Inc. says its new Raymond Ultra Fine Mill is capable of outputting materials five times finer than other mill systems and consumes up to 50 percent less energy than competing mill technologies. The system is an air swept vertical ring mill in which a shaft rotates convex rolls inside concave grinding rings to reduce materials to high degrees of fineness in multi-stage process. Air flowing within the mill carries ground material through the classification process to achieve the desired fineness. The system offers flexibility to deliver products as fine as 50 percent passing 2 microns, or as coarse as 50 percent passing 10 microns.
