    Schenck Process: Award winning innovation

    One of the most innovative products presented at Powtech and TechnoPharm 2007 in Nurnberg came from Schenck Process. This was the decision of the panel of jurors from Process magazine and its sister publication Schüttgut, who presented the Innovation Award for the first time at this event. 50 companies nominated their latest products for the award, five of which were chosen to receive the honour from the two trade journals for chemical and pharmaceutical engineering. To convince the jury the winning products not only had to be innovative but cost-effective for the user.

    Schenck Process won the special award in the Apparatus Construction and Process Components category for its PureFeed® DP system. This feed system is particularly suitable for the continuous gravimetric feeding of very small quantities of powder. The system allows for precise feeding of small volumes while also offering user-friendly maintenance, cleaning and disassembly.

    The awards were presented on the 27th of March at the close of the first day of the trade fair held at the Nürnberg Congress Center. For Schenck Process, it was the icing on the cake for a very successful fair appearance. The world’s leading specialist in industrial weighing, feeding, measuring and automation sees this award as positive confirmation of its approach: to take on challenges and always develop solutions for the benefit of the user.
