  • 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.

  • KEK® Cone Mills by Kemutec, part of the Schenck Process Group, are ideal for fatty, heat sensitive, sticky, moist and other difficult-to-grind applications. The energy-efficient mills minimize noise, dust and heat problems typically associated with traditional mills.

    The KEK® Cone Mills feature a gentle, grinding action, which helps maintain a close particle size range with minimal fines generation. The residence time required to process materials is very short, resulting in negligible heat generation while drastically reducing build-up of those difficult-to-grind products.

    Each unit features an ultra-hygienic design to meet critical cleanability demands inherent to the food and pharmaceutical industries. Constructed of 304 or 316 grade stainless steel, KEK® Cone Mills can be cleaned with high pressure hoses while access covers and motor shrouds are sealed with easy-to-remove ‘U’ section silicone gaskets. The mills are available in a variety of finishes, including bead blast, crack and crevice-free welds and mirror-polished surfaces.

    KEK® Cone Mills are available in 7 sizes ranging from 3” to 25” (75 mm to 680 mm) cone diameters with process rates of up to 15 tph.  The cone mills can be customized to meet individual customer needs.

    “For many years, small, medium and large manufacturers in the powder and bulk processing industries throughout North America relied on Kemutec’s versatile, intermediate energy cone mill to meet their unique and challenging process requirements, frequently confirmed in our state-of-the art Test Centers,” said Karin Galloway, Executive Director of Sales – Kemutec North America.

  • KEK® Centrifugal Sifters by Kemutec, part of the Schenck Process Group, feature an advanced cantilever design that greatly improves sifting efficiency in the pet food applications. This innovative design, which has been implemented on virtually every model of KEK® Centrifugal Sifters, features an easy to remove hygienic screen basket and paddle screw assembly, a hinged oversized end door and bolted flanges for dust-tight operation. The sifters also operate quietly without vibration. 

    The cantilevered design improves efficiency with its clean, simple features that are operator friendly – no tools are required for stripping down and cleaning – along with the time saved during inspection, cleaning and maintenance. The units also contain easily removable sifter screens for inspection and cleaning, as well as easy access via the oversized end door, which opens in seconds. There is zero leakage or contamination from the oversized end door.

    The sifters are ideal for use in feedstock policing, scalping, dedusting, conditioning and deagglomerating, but can also be used in unique applications, such as de-packing, fruit delumping, inline sieving, gas purging and explosion containment.

    Available in white, red or blue, nylon sifting screens are built to handle the most arduous, heavy-duty applications where access for maintenance is severely limited, such as toxic and radioactive processes. Also, optional screen protectors eject incoming  extraneous objects, which could damage the sieving mesh. To further improve the sifter’s hygienic capabilities, the units can also include CIP spray facilities, inlet section access door and additional inspection doors on the sifter body.

    The design is also available on KEK® models K300C, K650C, K800C and K1150C (the largest cantilevered sifter with capacities up to 80 tons per hour).

    “Schenck Process has established itself as the bulk materials handling provider trusted most throughout the process industries by creating a culture of constant innovation and always looking at how our extensive product portfolio can better serve of customers,” said Karin Galloway, Executive Director of Sales – Kemutec North America. “The Kemutec KEK® Centrifugral Sifter line with unparalleled hygienic and ease-of-use standards exemplify that commitment.”

  • The Hygienic Side Entry Receiver (HSER) filter is designed to meet challenging requirements for sanitation and inspection in the food and pet 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 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
  • The MechaTron® 3-A feeder was designed specifically for use in food and pet food industry 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.
