BEMA newsletter, September 2021

News from BEMA

We look forward to seeing you again!

Let’s not say more about you know what – which has ruled everyone’s life this past couple of years. So, let’s just say that we very much look forward to meeting you all, now that it is possible to attend fairs and exhibitions once again.

See below where you can meet us in the near future – we hope to see many of you, both new and existing customers, suppliers, and collaboration partners.

Like so many other enterprises, we have been extremely busy during the past few months. In many ways, activities in society, generally, have been significantly higher than many had expected, which has furthermore been confirmed by Danmarks Nationalbank having just written up the expectations to the annual growth rate. This is good news for everyone, although we are fully aware that not everyone came through the long ‘state of emergency’ without problems.

Trade fairs and exhibitions during the autumn

HI Tech & Industry Scandinavia in Herning: We take part in Danish industry’s large showcase exhibition, the HI Tech & Industry Scandinavia fair in Herning, during the period 5–7 October. Drop into our stand no. J7201 for the latest news about developments in the field of screw conveyors, screw shafts, and complete solutions. We will also be showing ACTA products relevant to the recovery industry, recycling stations, and other actors in this field, which is currently undergoing tremendous development.

Elmia Subcontractor in Jönköping: On this fair taking place during the period 9–12 November, we will be presenting projects and existing opportunities for entering into projects with our components, flights, and turnkey conveyor solutions. Drop in and find out what we can offer you. Stand no. B06:93.

Ajour in Odense: Vocational conference and fair directed at engineers, and others, in Odense. Do pay us a visit. The fair takes place during the period 25–26 November.

Complete system for conveying sludge

Sludge from sewage works is a residual product which is fairly unpleasant to handle. Spreading it on the fields as manure may inconvenience the surroundings and attempts at incinerating it at combined heat and power stations were unsuccessful because of its water content.

The first system has now been set up where sludge from wastewater via a process of steam desiccation and pyrolysis is transformed into so-called bio coke. It is a valuable manure which is easy to handle. The process removes the water content from the sludge and eliminates environmentally harmful substances such as microplastic and medicine residues.

We have supplied an integral solution for conveying sludge in the same system where it undergoes pyrolysis treatment. Together with Aquagreen, supplier of the total solution, we have designed the conveyor solution. BEMA has been in charge of producing the full screw conveyor solution, the final assembly and test run of all screws in our test stand.

The whole solution has been produced in stainless steel for max. wearability and resistance to the powerful substances contained in sludge.

Screw conveyor for the food industry

To a customer in the food industry, we have supplied a complete polished screw conveyor integrated into their system and used to convey raw materials. It should be noted that the food industry requires particularly high standards of their equipment. In this case, extremely smooth surfaces and very precise tolerances are a requirement to ensure correct function.

The screw conveyor is Ø 75 mm and made in stainless steel 1.4301. It is all-welded and subsequently polished to ensure total smoothness and avoid any residues of raw materials being left behind.

BEMA has carried out all processes from design to production and finishing and is therefore able to guarantee the final result.

Special flights and all types of screw conveyors

BEMA produces all kinds of flights – cylindrical as well as more complex conical or notched flights. One of our specialties are large flights measuring up to approx. Ø2500 in Hardox and other wear-resistant steel types. Here, we work with sandwich panels, which meet the requirements for particularly wearing applications.

Our construction department constructs special flights in any shape to match a given screw conveyor. Fully compatible flights save many hours of workshop adaptation during production – thus reducing costs! We therefore continuously strive to improve our production of flights to ensure a perfect fit when fitting them to the shaft.

We have a large assortment of standard flights. In addition, our committed technicians and production staff are ready to produce exactly the type of flights you need for your system.

Our production of screws covers both production-to-order and standard items. If you require a supplier capable of supplying identical screws, we make sure that our production formula is updated at all times, ensuring that you will always receive a uniform product.
