Informa Exhibitions Ltd regrets to announce the closure of Solids & Bulk Handling magazine.

Solids & Bulk Handling magazine has been affected by the ongoing downward trend of on-the-page marketing spend. This combined with the economic pressures that the loose and solids handling industry face has ultimately led to the sad and difficult decision to cease publishing the magazine.

The November/December 2017 issue of Solids & Bulk Handling will be its last edition.


Bunting® Develops New Tapered Step Liquid Trap February 15, 2010

NEWTON, KS – Bunting® Magnetics Co. has launched a new Tapered-Step design model in the plate-style series of our Magnetic Liquid Trap product line. This new style of Magnetic Liquid Trap is structured to hold ferrous debris against its solid tapered step to prevent wipe-off of tramp iron and fines even in high-density applications for volumes up to 180 gallons per minute (GPM).

“By designing our industry-leading Liquid Traps with the tapered-step, we are increasing the magnetic strength and reach out into the product stream and the holding force is increased substantially as well ” stated Rick Bigham, Bunting® Product Manager for Magnetic Separation. “It is a great product for meat, poultry and other processes where higher viscosity products require purification.”

The Bunting® tapered-step magnetic liquid trap comes equipped with powerful, high-energy Neodymium magnets which are capable of handling a 300º F high temperature load. This makes them ideal for clean-and-place systems. Furthermore, all Bunting liquid traps can handle high-pressure processing lines; the 2” sized models are rated at 250 psi while the 3” and 4” models handle up to 200 psi. All Bunting® liquid traps are tested at 150% of the rated pressure.

Configurations include single plate-style in 2 and 3 inch sizes as well as dual plate-style traps in 2, 3 and 4 inch sizes. Standard models feature a food-grade finish however; sanitary-grade finishes are available.
