It’s here! The Process Heating & Cooling Show kicks off today at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Be sure to stop by booth 313 to meet the Dwyer Instruments and Omega Engineering teams, and learn how we can help with your next process automation project.
With one huge scoop, you grab the rock and stone in front of you, collecting it in the bucket of your front-end loader. You move forward, ready to dump the material into the load chute of the conveyor. Someone gives a shout, arms waving and signaling you to stop: “Hold up! We’ve got a jam.” The belt conveyor is down again for maintenance, and you’ve got some time on your hands; this could mean several hours of downtime for the team.
Hauling components is an important part of the production processes of varying industries including concrete, chemical, mining, wastewater treatment, and more. Within these bulk handling operations, belt conveyors are an economical way to transport materials of varying sizes. Continue reading “Rock & Roll with Belt Conveyor System Solutions”
Many customers have come to the Dwyer team asking: “What can Dwyer do to help with lean manufacturing?” In this article, we will discuss the Dwyer® Series SVT solenoid valve and timer enclosure and its cost savings advantages in a dust filtration system.
The Series SVT combines two integral components in a dust filtration system into one package: solenoid valves and a timer controller. In a dust filtration system, solenoid valves are used to send air through a pulse valve, such as our Series RDCS. Pulse valves release a quick spurt of air into a dirty dust cartridge filter, which, in turn, releases the dust from the filter. The timer portion of the dust filtration system is the brains of the operation controlling when the solenoids fire, the amount of time the solenoids are open, and when the next solenoid in the sequence fires.
