Bag Dump Station

Bag dump stations are ideal for manually emptying or unloading small bags of bulk solid materials. Integrated bags and bag cages effectively reduce dust and protect against explosions and other hazardous situations [... more]

Belt Scale

A belt scale is used to continuously measure and report flow rates and totalized amounts of materials being transported on a conveyor belt. The weight of the material transported is determined by weighing the belt load and measuring the belt speed [... more]

Belt weigher

A belt weigher is used to determine the mass of the material transported on a conveyor belt. The weight of the material transported is determined by weighing the belt load and measuring the belt speed. [... more]

Belt weighfeeder

There are two types of belt weighfeeders: those with a controlled belt speed and those with a metering hopper. [... more]

Beneficiation is any process that improves (benefits) the economic value of the ore by removing the gangue minerals, which results in a higher grade product (concentrate) and a waste stream (tailings). [... more]

Biomass

Biomass is waste material from plants or animals that is not used for food or feed; it can be waste from farming (like wheat stalks, corn stover, or bagasse) or horticulture (yard waste), food processing (like corn cobs), animal farming (manure rich in [... more]

Bowl mill

The typical Raymond® Bowl mill system is designed to simultaneously dry, pulverize and classify solid fuels to 95% passing 200 mesh with a wide range of capacities from 24 to 150 stph. [... more]

Bulk Bag Unloader

The Schenck Process SacMaster® bulk bag unloader is designed completely empty bulk bags. When the bag is full of material, dual-pivot paddles push against the bottom of the bag to break material bridged over the outlet as well as agitate the sides [... more]

Bunker scales

Bunker scales are specially adapted hopper scales. They measure levels in bunkers of a wide range of geometries. The bunker scale models feature flexible adjustment options. [... more]
