From September 26–28, the bulk solids and conveying technology industry will gather at the Nuremberg, Germany exhibition halls. Powtech 2023 is a leading trade fair for processing and bulk-solids technology, with exhibitors from a number of sectors of the chemical process industries (CPI), including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, non-metallic minerals, ceramic, glass, machine and equipment manufacturing, recycling, environment technology, cosmetics and batteries. Both established companies and start-ups will present a wide range of technological solutions for the production and processing of powders, granules, bulk solids, fluids and liquids. The following is a preview of some of the products being exhibited.
Two-stage solid-liquid mixing in batch operation
The CMX 2000 is an inline mixer for fast, homogeneous incorporation of powders into liquids. The circulation of the liquid creates a strong vacuum in the machine, which sucks in the solid material. Thus, even powders that are difficult to wet can be incorporated lump-free into a liquid phase. The two-stage design with a pumping and dispersing stage ensures stable functionality even at high viscosities. Due to the highly efficient mode of operation of the CMX, production time and raw material usage can be saved. The CMX is usually supplied as a system with solids dosing and a mixing vessel. Depending on the application, the solids feed can be designed as a big bag system, via a hopper, by means of a sack chute or a suction lance directly sucking from the sack (photo). The CMX can be installed horizontally or vertically and has a low installation height. The closed system prevents dust and solvent emissions. Hall 2, Stand 510. — IKA‑Werke GmbH & Co.
