New feeding device from Van Aarsen

Van Aarsen introduces a new feeding device for its GD hammer mill to minimize explosion risk.

In order to further minimize explosion risk, Van Aarsen, specialist in the area of process technology in animal feed, has introduced an innovative feeding device with an integrated heavy parts separator, also known as a stone catcher, for its GD hammer mill. The GD hammer mill with feeding device from Van Aarsen is also ATEX-certified. The heavy parts separator detects objects and removes them to prevent them from being fed into the hammer mill and causing sparks. The company has also optimized its heavy parts separator by automating the removal of metal objects and stones and by the combination of this removal with the screen exchange process. By ensuring that the automated removal of heavy objects and the exchange of the screens take place at the same time, the downtime of the hammer mill is reduced and its capacity is increased. In order to provide a controlled release of pressure in case of an explosion, van Aarsen has also fitted the bin beneath the hammer mill with a pressure relief valve.

MAXIMUM SERVICE LIFE, REDUCED MAINTENANCE AND DOWNTIME
The new feeding device has a compact design and can easily be integrated into the GD hammer mill and the automated screen exchanger. Besides minimizing the risk of explosion, Van Aarsen’s new feeding device with integrated heavy parts separator also prevents damage to the screens. This greatly increases the service life of the screens and significantly reduces machine downtime and maintenance. The GD hammer mill from Van Aarsen is ATEX-certified and therefore complies with the strict European guidelines for the prevention of explosions.
