  • The Global Cleanable Airlock (GCA) is ideal for applications where dry raw or finished products are being handled in the process and where inspection or system clean-out are required.   Because the GCA is designed for high process rates and possesses a number of features suited for sanitary processes the airlock is perfect for food and pet food applications.  

    Two models of the GCA consist of a standard and a demountable unit.    The standard model is a round inlet, round outlet rotary valve which incorporates seals and product contact surfaces which meet food safety requirements.   The demountable unit is designed with a rail system that simplifies removal of the endplate/rotor assembly from the housing providing access to the internal valve cavity, rotor pockets and all other product contact areas for quick and easy cleaning.  

    Other key features of the GCA Airlock include:

    • Easy access to seals with rotor removed from endplate

    • All stainless steel construction with the exception of the endplate bearings

    • Housing and endplates designed for 10 Bar explosion shock resistance

    • FDA and EC 1935/2004 approved materials of construction in product contact areas

    • Oversized rotor shaft creates a naturally radiused rotor pocket for more complete product release

  • Schenck Process E-finity® is a patented continuous dense phase convey system for fragile materials. Precise pressure monitoring and airflow corrections allow the system to operate efficiently under all conditions, while gently inducing materials through the convey line in slug form. E-finity® is ideally suited for granular and pelleted materials, and has proven itself on many projects for pet foods, cereals, nuts, grains, prills, and pelleted material.

    Unique E-finity® air controls can employ a single air source to operate 2-3 different systems simultaneously. The result is a significant cost savings in both equipment and installation, with continued savings in operation and maintenance moving forward.

    Schenck Process’ ability to design, size, sell, fabricate, and integrate other OEM processes as well as installing and providing ongoing support delivers full control.  As a primary equipment manufacturer, Schenck Process manages production schedules for faster lead times on highly-engineered, custom-built systems. The end result is a predictable, efficient, and effective material handling process. 

  • The Hygienic Side Entry Receiver (HSER) filter is designed to meet challenging requirements for sanitation and inspection in the pet food and food industries. A horizontal cartridge filter, HSER is ideally suited for low headroom applications under pressure or vacuum and is primarily used as a filter receiver at the end of a pneumatic conveying system to separate the product being conveyed from the convey air.  Well suited for a variety of indoor locations, the HSER has a small footprint requirement and can be easily explosion vented through the roof or from the side.

    The HSER utilizes clean design concepts, minimizing horizontal surfaces where product or water might collect. The tubesheet design incorporates a machined insert which provides a flush internal surface and a rigid surface to seal the filter elements. The exclusive Schenck Process design allows for complete disassembly simplifying sanitation processes. Only the welded stud requires in-place cleaning. There is no internal structure, which makes it even easier to clean.

    HSER filters operate with an air pulse cleaning system that periodically releases a pulse of compressed air directed through the cartridge or bag, cleaning it and dislodging filtered material so it drops into the hopper below.  This operation is another feature that makes cleaning HSER simple.   

  • The Schenck Process 3-A approved Hygienic Round Top Removal (HRT) Filter is designed for sanitary applications where dust collection is required in low-capacity pneumatic conveying systems such as vacuum loading of extruders or refilling minor/micro hoppers.  

    This circular bodied pulse jet filter features a convenient and efficient top hinged dome.  With top entry there is no need to enter the dirty portion of the filter.  Top removal snap band filter bags require no tools for removal and can quickly be changed out. 

    Schenck Process offers HRT filter in two styles.   Without the hopper (Style II) the filter is ideally suited as a bin vent filter for storage tanks, work bins and surge hoppers.  With a 60° hopper (Style III) the filter receives dust through the hopper inlet and discharges the collected dust through an airlock for dust disposal or recycling.  When fitted with a pneumatic receiver, the Schenck Process HRT filter becomes an excellent product receiver.  Product enters the filter and is discharged from the bottom through an airlock.  Centrifugal force separates the product from the airstream and gently discharges it.

    The HRT 3-A Filter is also packaged with a number of features that are critical in sanitary processing environments.   They include the following:

    • Interior and exterior finishes meet 3-A requirements

    • Ferrules mounted for use with clean-in-place (CIP) skid and with clean-out-of-place (COP) filter media and purge pipes

    • Diaphragm bodies are all stainless steel as opposed to others on the market that use aluminum

    • Bag cages: 304 stainless steel

    • Bags: 16 oz. singed polyester, top removal (meets 3-A requirements)

    • Spring assisted hinge for clean air plenum access

  • The Schenck Process hygienic bag dump station for manually emptying bulk solid materials is loaded with features that are important to manufacturers in sanitary processing environments.  Offered in both filtered and non-filtered styles, the hygienic bag dump station is designed specifically to meet sanitary requirements.   

    All models of the Hygienic Bag Dump Station include the following key features:

    • Interior and exterior finishes to meet 3-A sanitary requirements

    • Ferrules mounted for use with clean-in-place(CIP) skid

    • Large openings enable a sanitary method for internal CIP cleaning

    • Removable internal bag rest

    • Diaphragm bodies are all stainless steel as opposed to others on the market that use aluminum

    • Bag cages: 304 stainless steel

    • Bags: 16 oz. singed polyester, side removal (meets 3-A requirements)

    • Flanged exhaust

    • 7 gauge stainless steel housing and hopper

    • Hinged door with gas springs

  • The Schenck Process Hygienic Conical Top (HCT) Cyclone fulfills the requirements for use in highly sanitary applications in industries such as food, pet food and beverage.   HCT Cyclones are capable of handling very heavy dust loads, and are very good spark arrestors. Additionally, they are perfect for human/pet food applications where high moisture and high fat content are commonly used in equipment configurations that include dryers and coolers, coating drums for flavors, centrifuge exhausts and extruder negative airlift systems.

    HCT Cyclones incorporate sanitary design features by minimizing internal and external horizontal surfaces where product or water may collect. Sanitary, infinitely adjustable clamped connections have replaced bolted flanges. This improves installation versatility while eliminating hard to clean external harborage points. A tool-free clamped dome with a ferrule used for cleaning the riser tube and draw-through area simplifies maintenance. The cone top has 3 ferrules for ease of cleaning the housing and hopper region. Internal wash-down is possible with design of the riser tube dome and housing cone top. Additional cleaning may be performed through the inlet and exhaust.

    The HCT is designed for mounting to on-edge sanitary structures, but can be customized to meet application needs. 
  • The MechaTron® 3-A feeder was designed specifically for use in food, pet food and dairy process applications where equipment must meet 3-A sanitary levels or equivalent.  All welds, radii, seals, surface finishes, gaskets, and contact and non-contact materials meet 3-A standards.  Available product features include AC and DC drive packages, an FDA / USDA accepted “Coni-Flex™” flexible conical feed-hopper, helix configurations for feed rates from 0.30 to 330 cubic feet (8.5 to 9,300 liters) per hour and an unmatched ability to disassemble, clean, reconfigure, and service from the non-process side of the feeder.  

    A domed hopper cover and open bottom frame speeds and optimizes draining during and after wash-down cycles.  Smooth, crevice-free product contact surfaces at 32 micro inch or better help prevent the formation of bacteria. 

    Additionally, Schenck Process also offers industrial grade versions of the MechaTron® in low, mid, and high range models with feed rates from 0.002 to 1,137 cubic feet (.58 to 32,160 liters) per hour.
