National Bulk Equipment Inc. (NBE) has released the second in a series of bulk material handling equipment guide books. This newest guide book called “Sanitary Bulk Filling and Discharging Systems Data and Specifications,” was developed to bring clarity to the often inaccurate perceptions of associated with the integration of bulk material handling equipment and sanitary process operations.

The book addresses two primary areas of concern shared amongst production and process engineers, plant operations and management personnel and corporate managers with respect to sanitary bulk material handling equipment. These concerns include identifying alternatives to force-fit, general industrial equipment designs touted as sanitary merely because of their stainless-steel materials and gaining confidence in matters relating to regulatory compliance of sanitary bulk material handling equipment. It also addresses the conformance of sanitary bulk equipment to regulated processes and practices.

The guidebook explains how application-specific, compliance-ready sanitary bulk material handling systems can eliminate the inspection failures, retrofits, corrective fabrication and finishing, and re-programming and re-inspection that can happen when general, industrial equipment designs are force-fit into sanitary applications.
