Use of 30/40mm aluminium profiles for construction of equipment housings or screens and guards in machine shops has become a standard system in manufacturing industry and other industrial environments. These new handles from Elesa are a great help in providing door pull handles for machines and associated protective devices.

Elesa tubular handles with either pass-through or fixed-end mounts act as bridge or grab door handles for single or double handed operation on heavier panels. Their offset mounting enables operation from the side or use on opposing doors where a straight installation would produce conflict or interference in operation.

Elesa M.1053 series tubular lift and pull handles in 30mm dia. aluminium are either epoxy coated or anodised – standard colours are black, grey or white with matching glass reinforced polyamide mountings.

When mixing bulk solids, residues can pose the threat of cross contamination or introducing product impurities so what are the options for mixer cleaning if these threats are to be avoided.
As rinsing mixer and screw with water and cleaning agents brings unwanted moisture into the system which can cause creation of lumps in the product, wet spots behind O-rings or gaskets and generate vast quantities of contaminated water or other cleaning fluids that have to be dealt with, here we consider the best dry cleaning approaches to minimise the propagation of bacteria.
Stewart Bryan, Hosokawa Micron Ltd, suggests, ‘Let us firstly look at the options to reduce the cleaning effort required by reviewing the process design, the vessel used, material transfer steps and any liquid additions. It is often the case that original processes are simply repeated even though the products involved have changed thus generating your own problem. Often it is difficult to review the process without bias and you may find speaking with a powder processing specialist such as Hosokawa can help.
Secondly look at the mixer design, what are the features that will aid dry cleaning regimes for minimising cross contamination’.
  • Conical mixer designs, with inclined surfaces and gravity discharge leave little opportunity for powders to form residues. In the case of the Hosokawa Vrieco Nauta Conical Mixer there are no horizontal or vertical partitions or sharp corners and as few joints, flanges and seals as possible come into contact with the product eliminating the potential to harbour residue.
  • For restriction free discharge a central bottom outlet offers best options for complete emptying.
  • In a conical screw mixer opt for open screw flights.
  • Powders simply slide off smooth surfaces without seams so a one part mixer is ideal for dry cleaning. With these and other sanitary design features only an extremely low amount of residue (<0.05%) remains when the Vrieco Nauta mixer is emptied, minimising the risk of subsequent batch contamination
Common deposit collection zones
Zone 1 is the surfaces above the product level of the filled mixer, mainly caused by dust, dispersed by filling. This can easily be blown away by compressed air.
Zone 2 is the surface of the vessel below the filling level, in contact with the movement of powders. Addition of liquids to the mixture will increase adhesion to the mixer wall. Cleaning with a cloth may remove such residue.
Zone 3 the mixing screw and in particular the underside of the blades can be difficult to clean without brushes and friction tools to break the residue from its bond with the blade.
Whilst CIP dry cleaning of residues is both difficult and time and labour intensive Hosokawa Micron Ltd suggests a number of solutions to enhance the cleaning of conical mixers that can be applied to both dry bulk powder mixing and moist mixtures containing a small percentage of liquid.
 
 
Enhanced Mixer Dry Cleaning
A large inspection door in the vessel wall creates an opening through which the operator can easily access all surfaces to be cleaned. Areas for special cleaning consideration include screw flights and the lower surface of the screw blade. The large opening also aids visibility of areas to be cleaned. The full and correct closure of this door is a significant safety factor when the mixer is in operation.
A semi domed cover, welded to the cone, offering a large radius and no crevices in which bacteria might settle offers enhanced cleanability.
Hosokawa’s Isem ball segment valve with its rounded interior surfaces reduces the possibility for material deposition to a minimum. An inspection port in the valve is available as standard. In case deposits have to be removed this can be done using special tools.
‘Of course there are many, mainly wet or sticky mixing applications where dry cleaning is not an option and wet cleaning is inevitable. In the case of the example, Vrieco Nauta mixer, there are enhanced wet CIP options that are more appropriate,’ explains Stewart Bryan.

Elesa’s chrome on plastic technology is particularly suitable for applications on machines and equipment whose parts, for hygienic reasons, must be frequently cleaned by using water jets or steam. It is therefore often a suitable replacement for stainless steel in many arduous or specialist situations at a very considerable cost saving.

Example items are the VC.692-CR lobe knob series for machine control, coupled with ERX-CR adjustable clamping handles and the CQT.FM-CR quarter turn lever latches for enclosure locking to IP65.

This chrome finished polyamide technopolymer range is an expanding feature within the extensive Elesa portfolio of standard industrial components as the chrome-plating finish makes the surface finish semi-glossy and homogeneous to facilitate cleaning operations and is tested at -30°C up to +80°C.

The chrome-plated surface is resistant to wear, scrapes and shocks. In laboratory tests carried out at ambient temperature (23°C), the chrome-plated surface proved to be resistant to: sea water, detergents, acetone, ethyl alcohol, formic acid and chlorine solutions.

When speciality fabric manufacturer Vlisco approached Hosokawa Micron Ltd seeking a contained drum handling solution to provide a physical barrier between the operator and product to protect their workforce from contact with airborne, fabric dye particles, they were explicit in the challenges that needed to be met.
These including the safe handling of drums of various sizes and the de-lidding, opening and emptying of drums into a reactor vessel within a contained environment.
Hosokawa Micron engineers responded with a bespoke designed drum tipping glovebox, built around the dye reactor vessel, that met all the customer’s requirements including an Operator Exposure Level of <5 µg/m⊃3; to protect operators potentially harmful dusts.
Drums and kegs of different sizes and weights are presented to the glovebox on a roller track and manually moved into the glovebox before being connected to the drum tipper. Drums are de-lidded and bags opened before special container clamps suitable for handling a range of weights/sizes attach the drums to the lifting/tipping device. The drums are then automatically lifted, rotated and dropped onto the reactor where they are located into position to secure and reduce dust creation on discharge.
The system is operated under a nitrogen blanket to minimise dust explosion risk and is engineered for ATEX compliance with drum lifting and rotation operated by intrinsically safe air motors.
As the reactor vessel contains hydrochloric acid, special coatings are applied to the glovebox chamber and plastic parts were used to make up the filter and extraction systems utilising plastic fans, pipework and plastic coated valves and filters.
As an original and heritage textile design company, Vlisco welcomed Hosokawa’s bespoke approach to providing a purpose designed containment solution that reduced both manual handling of drums and operator risk.
 
Michiel Soolsma, Process & Quality Engineer, Vlisco says, ‘From the first contact, Hosokawa made a great impression by understanding our problems and coming up with possible solutions. Although we needed more time before starting the project, Hosokawa showed patience and assisted us when asked.
From the start to the end of the project Hosokawa showed their experience and engineered a glovebox that is operator friendly and could be integrated in our new installation.
I personally enjoyed working together with their engineers on this project with Hosokawa.’
For over 170 years, Vlisco has created more than 350,000 original textile designs. Many of these designs have become cultural treasures, bestowed with special names and meanings by the merchants of Central and West Africa.

Simply a Better Downflow Booth Option

A downflow booth design standard for companies seeking affordable downflow booth options that don’t break the bank but which still retain the high levels of containment and personnel protection is proving popular across a range of processing industries. Customers say the performance is what they would expect from a more expensive booth.
 ‘We haven’t cut corners in any way,’ says Hosokawa Micron Product Manager, Carl Emsley, ‘we’ve just developed a smarter design that is already proving popular with those customers who want multiple booths and those using downflow containment facilities for the first time. Our Downflow Booth design is capable of achieving OELs <1µg/m3,, subject to use of high containment screen and standard operating procedures.’
The Downflow Booth is suitable for handling powders or liquids and with a full, front opening retractable roller door is suitable for storage as well as multiple dispensing activities.
Designed for ease of installation and flexibility of operation the new Downflow Booth is ‘plug and play’ requiring no complicated installation or qualified personnel to undertake the wiring work. By utilising EC plug fan design and technology air handling efficiencies have been achieved alongside easily adjustable fan speed control that allows for efficient air handling within the working environment.
With noise levels of sub 60dba the booth is ideal for positioning within ‘quiet zones’ or within multi-processing areas where high noise levels might be unacceptable.
