    A feeder for both batch and continuous operation Available in 7 models with feedrates from 1 to 550 ft3/h, the Better-Weigh Feeders (photo) are designed to provide feeding in either batch or continuous mode, depending upon the arrangement of the unit’s control electronics. In batch mode, the controller is used to control the fast (bulk) and slow (dribble) speeds of the feeder; accuracies of 0.5% can be achieved in 2-lb or less batches. In continuous mode, the feeder’s controller constantly monitors loss of weight of material over time in order to maintain a continuous loss of weight with an accuracy of 0.25 to 0.50%. — Metalfab, Inc., Vernon, N.J. edlinks.chemengonline.com/6895-431   Prevent bin overflow with this device The BMRX Rotary Bin Level Indicator (photo) is a cost-effective, paddle-style indicator featuring refinements for increasing the security, reliability and ease of maintenance. The BMRX comes with a four-bearing drive shaft assembly that reduces motor drag. The device is suitable for preventing bin overflows, empty conditions, clogged chutes and jammed conveyors. — BinMaster, Lincoln, Neb. edlinks.chemengonline.com/6895-432   Abrasives are not a problem for this conveyor CycloLok…
