A new Magnum Model 72 Screen Classifying Cutter from Munson Machinery reduces infeed products spanning a wider range of sizes, at approximately 75 percent higher rates than standard size models of equivalent length. The cutter features an 18 in. (457 mm) overall diameter rotor, versus the standard 10.5 in. (267 mm) diameter rotor, and contains a 72 in. (1829 mm) long helical array of 72 interconnected "four-sided stars" which hold 288 carbide cutter tips that continuously shear oversize materials against twin, stationary bed knives. With no frontal gaps between the cutter tips, material is cut into uniform pieces with minimum imperfections or fines, and little to no generation of heat.


A new Munson Ribbon Blender that meets USDA sanitary standards, blends up to 1.84 cu m of powders, pastes or slurries. The unit, model HD-3.5-7-S316, is constructed of #316 stainless steel with continuous welds having 6 mm radii polished to 150 grit, a #4 (-32 Ra) interior surface finish and external removable seals.

Versatile, strong, dependable, safe – Maag's pumps for the chemical process industry

Maags broad choice of different gear pumps, predominantly for the chemical process industry, include the following models: CINOX/THERMINOX® pump system – Versatile cinox/therminox® gear pumps are predominantly used in the chemical process industry. Large viscosity, temperature and pressure ranges paired with abrasive solids and corrosiveness of the products conveyed make it indispensable to design the pumps individually to suit the product. The cinox/therminox® meets these very high demands not only because it is made of stainless steel, but also because it can be heated, if necessary. REFINEX/REFITHERM® pump system – Strong The refinex/refitherm® pump series is designed especially for chemical and industrial plants and refineries where high process pressure, high temperatures and highly viscous media play an important role. The refinex/refitherm® pumps withstand pressures up to 350 bar and are thus reliable partners. HYDROLUB ®pump system – Dependable The hydrolub ® pump is ideally suited for plants in continuous operation or in technical process plants where variety of products but also reliability are in demand. The Maag lubrication pump has performed reliably for more than 50 years. It can use a large number of components, making it ideal for demanding transport media. H Series – Standardized This H Series pump was developed for plants where reliable lubrication is demanded, but also for areas such as PUR (polyol). The products to be transported have specific characteristics that can be clearly delimited, which is why the H Series can be standardized. This results in a simple design, short delivery times and cost-optimized processes. Mag Drive (magnetic coupling ) – Safe Thanks to its hermetically sealed magnetic coupling, the Mag Drive is ideally suitable for the transport of toxic media. The product chamber of the gear pump is completely separated from the environment by a containment shell. The torque is transmitted contact-free from the motor shaft to the pump shaft by high-performance permanent magnets. The Mag Drive is characterized by high operational reliability and extremely low maintenance requirements.
