Using a rotor impact mill for grinding burnt lime

ZKG INTERNATIONAL

The intention was to rationalize the primary comminution of burnt lime in the 0√120 mm particle size range in a German lime and cement plant.This had previously been carried out with an impact mill, and the specific aims were to increase the comminution effect and reduce the machine running time. BHS-Sonthofen decided to use an RPM 1113 rotor impact mill for this purpose.The BHS RPM 1113 rotor impact mill, fitted with a 110 kW motor, is capable of comminuting 25 t/h burnt lime of particle size 0√120 mm. This produces approximately one third 0√0.09 mm fine lime and two thirds 0.09√2 mm.
The throughput capacity and size reduction ratio achieved with this machine are significantly higher than the previous values achieved with the impact mill.This means a saving in machine running hours, i.e. in energy and wear costs.

Evaluation of a Continuous-Indexing Vacuum Belt Filter As a Replacement for Filter Presses For the Manufacture of a High-Value Specialty Chemical Product

BHS-Filtration Inc.

The BHS Continuous-Indexing Vacuum Belt Filter (CI-VBF) with 12 m² of filter area replaced a 440 m² filter press. The CI-VBF provided improved washing efficency for a higher quality product, and lower operating and lower maintenance costs with a fully automated operation. Solid-liquid separation can be accomplished by pressure or vacuum filtration in a batch or continuous mode. Generally, following filtration, the cake must be washed and subsequently dried. The choice of technology depends upon a wide range of parameters of the solids (i.e. crystal size and distribution, type and shape), liquids (type, temperature, and viscosity) and the process itself. This article discusses the evaluation and installation of the BHS Continuous-Indexing Vacuum Belt Filter (CI-VBF) as a replacement for manually operated filter presses.

Clean-in-place operations for thin-cake filtration technologies

PharmaChem

This article discusses the choice of thin-cake (2-25 mm) separation technologies and their benefits to optimizing the effectiveness of the production process. The paper continues with a discussion of clean-in-place operations to meet current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) guidelines including riboflavin test and validations. ANSI/ISA S88 (and IEC 61512-1 in the international arena) batch process control system standards are also examined. Finally, factory and site acceptance testing is described.

What Twin-Shaft Mixing can do for you

Everyone has a general idea what mixing means. But describing this is not so easy. The goal of any mixing process is to distribute materials with different characteristics, and usually in differing quan-tities, as evenly as possible. A new homogeneous material with different properties results.

Process Testing and Scale-UP for a BHS Pharma Rotary Pressure Filter as a Replacement for Two Inverting-Basket Centrifuges at a Bulk Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility

BHS-Filtration Inc.

The BHS Ph-RPF technology provides improved product quality with more efficient washing ratios compared with the inverting-basket centrifuges. Savings in solvent usage, energy consumption, maintenance costs and capital and installation costs result in overall project savings on the order of 4-6 to 1.
