Coperion and Coperion K-Tron announce the launch of the new Traveling Equipment Display (TED). The mobile display begins traveling directly to bulk material handling facilities throughout the United States early October and will bring the latest solutions for feeding, pneumatic conveying, complete systems, components and extruders right to the customer’s doorstep. Best of all, it is free of charge and offers companies hands on learning demonstrations as well as direct contact with a factory representative to answer questions and discuss specific applications. TED is also equipped with several video screens for viewing all the latest information Coperion has to offer.
The traveling equipment display is outfitted with several types of feeders including a twin screw feeder that can be switched out to a single screw by simply exchanging the feeding module.
This quick change concept allows for easy material changeover and cleaning. Other feeders on the truck include the Smart Weigh Belt feeder and the unique Bulk Solids Pump feeder.
Process components available on TED include Coperion’s top selling diverter valves specially equipped for viewing the internals of the valve and easily demonstrating the technological advances in the valve design. A full range of rotary valves can be seen that include an innovative full extraction system on the ZRD rotary valve allowing easy withdrawal of the rotor and complete access to the interior of the valve. The smallest valve Coperion has to offer, the ZZB, will also be on display showing its capabilities for easy cleaning, small capacity dosing and metering and its high sanitary standards. A sectioned rotary valve is also available for easily viewing seals, gaskets and bearings as well as a vacuum sequencing receiver demonstrating Coperion K-Tron’s wide range of pneumatic conveying equipment.
The traveling equipment display covers regions in the continental USA only. If companies would like to schedule a visit for TED to come to their facility directly, email TED@coperion.com.
Still in its infancy, cell-cultured meat is being looked at for its possibilities, but environmental challenges exist, as well.

While forecasts can have short shelf lives, being overtaken by unforeseen events, there’s no question that the U.S. economy and American houseeholds have been buffeted by COVID-19 shutdowns and illnesses, patches of job insecurity despite low unemployment rates and record price inflation only partially offset by wage increases.
