ABB debuted its Baldor-Reliance Severe Duty XT motor, which the company describes as a solution to most severe-duty application challenges. The motors are built in Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi and Oklahoma, and they are available now from local inventory. The motors are easy to install and maintain, the company says, offering a range of standard features. According to ABB, the motors include a number of off-the-shelf components that can help severe-duty applications perform safely and reliably, including a heavy-duty cast-iron frame construction that is available from a 1- to 300-hp NEMA 143T frame up to a 449T frame. Additionally, the motors feature enhanced ingress protection and corrosion-resistant two-part epoxy paint.

The STP 61 pneumatic conveying control system from Gericke USA features a pre-programmed, embedded system design that eliminates time-intensive, manual PLC programming for fast commissioning, easy operation and reduced maintenance needs. Offering a plug-and-play approach, the company says the STP 61 embedded controller installs in minutes without requiring a professional PLC engineer or high-level programming expertise. The STP 61 automates control over Gericke USA’s dense phase pneumatic conveying systems for optimum bulk material transfer efficiency with minimal operator involvement.

Command Alkon introduced TicketPro, a solution to digitize 100 percent of material and haul tickets that enter a production facility or jobsite by extracting data through optical character recognition technology. According to Command Alkon, TicketPro offers a simplistic and flexible approach to digitizing ticket data that ensures material supply operations, material haulers and construction project jobsites can remove paper tickets from their processes. Within the TicketPro system, a ticket signer selects a project, chooses the material being hauled and snaps a picture of the paper ticket. The system can utilize scanner integration or capture tickets directly from a scale printer with an interface that imports the tickets as soon as they are created. 


Control systems for bulk process applications

BPS (Best Process Solutions) control systems are designed to utilize the most advanced networking technologies available from major control manufacturers, according to the company. Utilizing these networking and control technologies allows BPS control systems to be installed and implemented in shorter periods, thus reducing installation costs. According to BPS, it has the capability to produce controls for full systems from start to finish, as well as design and fabricate control systems for a customer’s existing operation. BPS does the upfront engineering and sizing of control components based on the mechanical design and specification of the customer’s equipment and bulk processing control needs.
