Reliable conveying of abrasive granulates with Mettler-Toledo

Solution for conveying fine crystals without damaging machinery

Manufacturers of fine granulates, crystals and powders no longer have to be plagued by the ingress of particles into production line machinery with the launch of Mettler-Toledo Garvens Granulate Conveyor for checkweighers. Developed to reduce downtime and maintenance costs inherent with cleaning particle contamination, the new Granulate Conveyor features a unique covered design to protect moving parts. The conveyor is ideal for checkweighers used for all free-flowing granulate products, such as salt, sugar, washing powders and flour.

Granulate products can penetrate even the smallest gaps in machinery. During checkweighing, loose crystals can get under the transport belt of the conveyor, impairing its movement and changing the belt alignment, eventually causing so much damage that production must be stopped. With the Granulate Conveyor for Garvens checkweighers, all turning parts are protected by a special elastic transport belt which completely covers the conveyor body and acts as a seal. The conveyor body is milled from a solid block, with no unnecessary gaps by which particles can enter. Also the toothed belt, located between the motor and drive roller, is fully enclosed to protect the drive system from abrasive or sticky particles.

Downtime can be very costly to manufacturers as it has such a severe impact on productivity. By sealing and protecting the transport belt machinery, our granulate conveyor can save manufacturers time and money, said Sascha Goly, Product Manager, Mettler-Toledo Garvens.

The conveyor's elastic belt material does not require a tensioning device, making it quick and easy to replace, further reducing maintenance time. The Granulate Conveyor's small roller diameter of only 25mm ensures the most stable and safe transport of granulate products, lowering the risk of product waste and increasing weighing accuracy.

Mettler-Toledo Garvens Granulate Conveyor easily integrates with existing Mettler-Toledo machines, so manufacturers do not have to invest in expensive new systems or lose production time during upgrade. It is available for Garvens checkweigher models XE/XS3, XE/XS3 H, XE/XS3 CC, and XE/XS3 CC H. Granulate conveyors are applicable for products weighing up to 5000 grams and for a maximum conveyor speed of 60 metre/min.

The Garvens Granulate Conveyor is part of Mettler-Toledo's product inspection technology portfolio, which also includes x-ray, metal detection and checkweighing solutions.

S+S metal separators aid increased efficiency in the plastics industry
Economically interesting, high-quality solutions for more than three decades Schönberg, February 2013 The European plastics industry is subject to considerable international competitive pressures. To maintain long term competitiveness companies must supply high-quality products and must operate at the highest possible efficiency throughout their operations. High levels of automation and minimum machine downtime are essential contributors to lower production costs and in-creased efficiency. “Metal Free” feedstock granulate, whether virgin or regrind is an
No metal will pass this combination
In plastics processing, environmental awareness, but also economic considerations, have resulted in the use of industry-quality granulate (regenerated material, ground material) which frequently shows a slight contamination with foreign objects such as e.g. metal particles. Depending on the production system this may soon cause unwanted machine downtimes. Especially for the plastics industry S+S now offers a system combination that combines the advantages of magnet separators and inductive metal separators. This combination
