Motorized pulleys with integrated shaft encoders from BDL America allow conveyor system operators to synchronize product movements. The encoders use either SKF or SNR pulse outputs to precisely monitor motorized pulley movement to control conveyor belt speed, position, torque and rotational direction.
Mettler-Toledo Safeline's PowerPhase PRO is a three-frequency metal detector with a color, touch-screen interface. The IP69K-rated unit features one-pass auto product set up. A product-clustering feature allows a range of products to run through the machine without the need to change settings.
The ABCOR HFK ultrafiltration spiral module series from Koch includes membranes that provide high yields for whey and milk processing, as well as other food applications. The elements use the proprietary KMS semi-permeable polyethersulfone (PES) membrane to achieve 99.8% instantaneous protein rejection.
