Chinese subsidiary at new location

HAVER TECHNOLOGIES in Tianjin (HTT) has been living the latest guiding principle of HAVER & BOECKER’s “Time to chain” to higher degree since moving to its new location in June (Fig.). The objective is to provide tailored machines and solutions to suit the customers’ needs and to significantly broaden the product range. In addition to the final assembly of packing machines for solid bulk materials and filling machines for liquid and pasty products, the company is also specialised in silo components, conveyor belts, foreign material screening machines, truck loading systems and palletizers. A large part of the cement industry and numerous companies in the mineral processing technology are already located in this large region. Currently China’s largest chemical hub is being developed there. HAVER TECHNOLOGIES (Tianjin) could hardly be closer to its customers. As a result the Chinese daughter company guarantees that 95 % of the HTT produced machines can be delivered within 24 hours. Service visits by service technicians will be done in the shortest time. Here HTT benefits from the ideal infrastructure: One of China’s largest seaports and an international airport directly in Tianjin, an excellent constructed network of motorways and the Beijing airport right at the doorstep. In just ten months a two-storey 1300 m² office building with space for approximately 45 employees was built on a total area of 13 300 m². There is also the possibility for a production and...

Waste nothing

A good weighing system relies on more than just a precise measurement process. The connected controller, also referred to as the evaluation unit, electronics or measurement amplifier, is a crucial factor in the efficiency of the system. For this reason, since the beginning of the year, REMBE® has been supplying a new controller for the C-LEVER® direct flow meter. The C-LEVER® direct is equipped with EVA HighEnd, a new controller that tunes the weighing system better to customer needs. ...

Industrial wire screens - processing any challenge

Under the motto “Time to chain”, the HAVER & BOECKER Wire Weaving and Machinery Divisions are presenting their product lines at POWTECH 2014. Since early this year the Oelde-Germany based company has touted the linking of premium technologies to form complete plants. In addition to its new packing systems, HAVER & BOECKER will also be showcasing the technological components of its subsidiary companies BEHN + BATES and HAVER ENGINEERING. Ultrasonic screens in all variations – safety in critical areas as well For years HAVER & BOECKER is collaborating with ARTECH Ultrasonic Systems AG, an international leader in ultrasound technology, to provide custom-made ultrasonic screening systems with innovative frequency variation. This type of screening systems provides for more efficient screening because it improves screen throughput, helps to break down agglomerates, reduces the amount of oversize particles and ensures a long-term cleaning effect. Ultrasonic screening solutions by HAVER & BOECKER can be used for cut sizes of approx. 1000 µm to 25 µm. Besides the well-known use on vibrating screening machines, HAVER & BOECKER exhibits ultrasonic technology for gyratory screening machines during POWTECH 2014. Also showcased will be new features of the ultrasonic system: pulsating and interval sieving programs as well as new safety features increase screening efficiency and operational reliability significantly. HAVER screening machine UMD – great performance on a small footprint For screening small production volumes and small single batches and for applications on laboratory and pilot plant scale, HAVER & BOECKER offers the sleek screening machine HAVER UMD. This linear vibrating screen is suitable for a large variety of bulk materials such as sand, gravel, ore or coal, as well as for sensitive or aggressive products. The screen frames can also be equipped with ball trays or ARTECH ultrasonics to allow for implementation of ultra-fine cut sizes and good self-cleaning of the wire cloth. These screening aids furthermore improve the screening results and increase the throughput rate. The size of the machine and its design, which allows for batch and for continuous operation, make it particularly suitable for use in smaller industrial applications. Traditional particle analysis Based on more than 125 years of experience in wire fabric technology HAVER & BOECKER provides innovative systems which continue to set new standards in functionality, precision and reliability. Standard-compliant test sieves for hand sieving, conventional sieving, dry or wet screening are offered for aperture sizes of 5 microns to 125 mm. The characteristic feature of the electromagnetic 3D Test Sieve Shakers for dry and wet sieving is the self-readjusting amplitude. The TYLER-Ro Tap® by the American subsidiary of HAVER & BOECKER, W.S.TYLER, has been popular for decades within the abrasive and mining industry with the simulation of hand sieving by a circular and tapping motion. The HAVER UWL 400 is designed for coarse and heavy samples with two rotary current unbalanced motors. The new HAVER CSA 5.0 software quickly enables computerized evaluation of sieve analyses. Photo-optical particle analyses – HAVER CPA The HAVER CPA measuring process enables the analysis of particle sizes and particle shapes of dry and free-falling particles of bulk materials in a measuring range from 10 µm up to 400 mm. As standardized laboratory units, customized industrial solutions or in combination with HAVER peripherals for systems to be made to measure: the HAVER CPA analyses gravel, sand, granulates, wood chippings, pharmaceutical products or foodstuffs in real time. A high-resolution digital line scan camera scans the particles against the background of an LED light source with a recording frequency of up to 28 000 line scans per second. The scanned lines are combined to form an endless data record and the shadow...
