Conveyor belt speed sensor

The Model BSD (belt speed detector) is a “traction action” motion control that indicates when a conveyor belt has slowed or quit moving altogether. The unit can be adjusted as an overspeed, underspeed, or zero speed control. The output of the Model BSD can be wired into a PLC or DCS, or to the optional RMS controller, which has a DP/DT relay to control up to two separate circuits, one for machinery shutdown and one for an alarm.

Iron oxide-rich granulated pigments

CathayGran inorganic, micro-granulated pigments for concrete masonry or hardscape units are produced with a new generation of spray-drying technology. The process yields free flowing, easy to handle, consistently graded granules that exhibit optimal dispersing characteristics in block or paver mixes. The CathayGran series spans the full spectrum of concrete-coloring pigments, all of which are processed at the highest purity possible.
