TOTOWA, NJ — Vibra Screw, Inc., a leader in solids processing and solids handling solutions, has announced the availability of a new case history that describes how a major Eastern toll processor was able to simplify its new plant design and considerably save on costs by choosing a simpler volumetric approach to bulk materials handling rather than a more complicated gravimetric loss-in-weight solution.In this particular installation, the processor incorporated bulk bag unloaders, bin activators, screw and belt feeders, blenders, tube conveyors, bucket elevators, bag fillers, storage silos and live bottom bins into a highly efficient system for feeding and metering mineral blends into two identical packaging lines. Customized PLC controls were also provided by Vibra Screw to synchronize the diverse filling, blending, and discharge functions required to meet application requirements.All of the Vibra Screw equipment was unconditionally guaranteed to perform in the service for which it was sold.
