POWTECH 2020 has been cancelled - Grenzebach launches digital information platform
Press | 09/01/2020
Extended technology and service packages for bulk solids processing
Grenzebach offers comfortable ways of finding information about its supplies and services relating to powder, granules and bulk solids processing technology directly from a home office. Even though POWTECH, an important meeting place for the industry, cannot take place again before 2022, the exhibits and technology solutions Grenzebach planned to show can be experienced on a digital information platform. "We wish to address questions and concerns of our customers and partners already now, and we look forward to presenting our product portfolio in digital formats to all those interested and to discussing industry topics in a virtual environment," says Michael Meyer, Director Process Technology at Grenzebach. The focus is on process technology solutions for grinding and also for deaeration and simultaneous compaction of bulk solids.
VACUPRESS® - virtual presentation of a top performer
The VACUPRESS®, which delivers strong performance as a deaerator and compactor in industrial processes, will be presented by Grenzebach in an expert video. The video gives customers a detailed insight into material-friendly deaeration and compaction of fine grained bulk solids in the chemical, building and non-metallic minerals industries. Product volumes can be reduced by up to 75 per cent by this gentle deaeration process. Users benefit from lower shipping and storage costs and improved product handling characteristics. Thanks to the very low pressing forces and optimum deaeration, the VACUPRESS® can provide a maximum increase in bulk weight without negative effects on the product quality. Philip Wagner, Sales Manager Process Technology, underlines: "Each VACUPRESS® is precisely adapted to the material to be processed and to the customer's specific requirements. At our technology centre in Bad Hersfeld we carry out product-specific analyses, and thanks to our practice-oriented testing equipment and facilities we can offer coherent, customised process solutions. Our customers benefit from technology that is specifically dimensioned and designed for their respective applications."
And there will be another innovation coming up from Grenzebach in this context: The Grenzebach experts are working on a portable VACUPRESS® that allows feasibility studies with a customer's individual bulk material to be carried out directly on the customer's premises.
Whirlwind Mill - exactly as the customer wants it
The Grenzebach Whirlwind Mill is also on digital display, allowing all those interested to learn about its strengths. This grinding technology, too, is fine-tuned at the technology centre in Bad Hersfeld to obtain the requested particle sizes and product grades. The Whirlwind Mill demonstrates its advantages at its best in pulverising and micro-pulverising soft to medium-hard products (up to Mohs hardness 5). It achieves very fine powders with a narrow particle size distribution and excellent upper fines limit. It features clockwise and anticlockwise rotation to reduce wear. With its strong and sturdy design, the Whirlwind Mill stands for reliable 24/7 operation, a long life and energy-efficient use.
Meetings in a virtual format and personally in Bad Hersfeld
The particular circumstances of 2020 are an incentive for Grenzebach to digitally present technologies in an inspiring way. "We look forward to meeting many of our customers and partners in a virtual environment on the occasion of POWTECH – and of course we are also available for individual meetings at our location in Bad Hersfeld," explains Michael Meyer. These are formats that were already very well received by the intralogistics industry during the LogiMAT trade fair in spring this year. The digital content for powder, granules and bulk solids professionals will be available on the Grenzebach webpage from 30 September– it is worthwhile to stay tuned and follow up!
