Bunting Magnetics Co. | Booth #1837 | Pneumatic Continuous-Cleaning HF Drawer Magnet

Bunting Magnetics has developed a new Pneumatic Continuous-Cleaning HF Drawer Magnet. This HF Drawer Magnet is designed to fully extend the magnetic cartridges outside the housing and to clean "On-The-Fly" with no disruption of product flow. As our tube assemblies travel outside the housing, grommets wipe the tubes clean all the way to their nonmagnetic tapered ends. This ensures that each cartridge is fully wiped and prevents captured tramp iron from reentering the housings. By allowing the magnets to be self-cleaned while product is still flowing, Bunting Pneumatic Continuous-Cleaning HF Drawer Magnets provide magnetic protection during the entire manufacturing

Posi-flate | Booth #1012 | Heavy Duty Series 585 and 586 Butterfly Valves

Posi-flate will be introducing the new heavy duty Series 585 and 586 inflatable seated butterfly valves at the upcoming PTXI Powder Show. The Posi-flate Series 585/586 inflatable seated butterfly valves are designed for the most the most severe of applications. The new heavy duty seat has been designed for higher operating pressures and temperatures. Standard valve sizes range from 2" (50 mm) to 24" (600 mm) and fit both ANSI and metric flanges. The Posi-flate valve is ideally suited for very abrasive materials such as sand, feldspar, fly ash and most other dry, granular materials, which reduce valve life. The inflatable seat design provides a better seal by utilizing air pressure to expand the seat against the disc, providing more sealing area and an even pressure distribution against the disc every time. The seat automatically compensates for wear when it inflates against the disc, extending valve life considerably. The valves are available in a wide variety of construction materials including stainless steel and aluminum.
