Spiroflow Systems (Monroe, NC) has boosted its bulk materials handling equipment portfolio and sales reach with the acquisition of fellow bulk material handling technology supplier, Dynamet Conveyors (Kalamazoo, MI). Dynamet's powder-handling product slate includes tubular drag-chain conveyors, flexible-screw conveyors, bulk-bag unloaders, manual dump-bag stations, and pneumatic tilt tables for a variety of industries including food, chemical, pharmaceutical, packaging, and plastics. Spiroflow says the acquisition of the 30-year-old Dynamet expands its equipment and in-house experience so that it now has largest selection of powder handling equipment in the industry.
A supplier of standard and custom powder-handling equipment, Spiroflow specializes in bulk bag dischargers and fillers; mechanical, flexible, and pneumatic conveyors; bag-packing equipment; and flexible storage silos. On its web site, the company says in addition to conveying, it offers weighing systems, with the ability to handle dry bulk solids and ingredients in powder, granule, pellet, and flake form. Both companies also offer discharge, dump/unload, and filling products. Dynamet has dealt with a range of materials of varying densities, including fine powders, crystals, flakes, sludges, slurries, and metal powders. In addition to its headquarters outside Charlotte, Spiroflow maintains an office in Clitheroe, Lancashire, England.
