  • Superior Industries To Significantly Increase Footprint At Bauma 2019

    Superior Industries Inc., an American-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, says its presence at bauma 2019 will be three-times larger than previous editions of the world’s largest trade show. Today, the builder of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment unveiled its display plans.

    Inside Hall B2 at stand 107, Superior plans to showcase its brand new Alliance Low Water Washer. The one-of-a-kind technology allows crushing operators to wash fines within their crushing circuit. It saves from transporting the fines to a separate wash site, which requires costly trucks and harmful re-handling of the material.

    Available for production rates of 90 – 272 MTPH (100-300 TPH), the Alliance Low Water Washer accepts a dry feed from the crushing circuit. An agitator converts the material to a slurry before an integrated dewatering screen removes excess water, leaving as little as 8% moisture in the discharged manufactured sand. Superior says existing units have required as little 45-90 m3/hour of water (200-400 GPM), depending on production rates. That’s significantly less water consumption than a traditional screw or cyclone.

    To help drive home the point, he also welcomes escalating fines with a higher starting point than the current $121.

  • Canadian Institute of Forestry Announces an Initiative to Promote Gender Equity in Canada's Forest Sector

    The future of Canada's forest sector requires a diverse and inclusive workforce. The Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut forestier du Canada (CIF-IFC) is pleased to announce an initiative to create a National Action Plan to promote gender equity in the forest sector.

    The CIF-IFC applauds the Government of Canada's commitment to this initiative. A formal announcement of federal funding for the project was made by Mr. Terry Duguid, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Status of Women at the Museum of Nature in Ottawa. "When we invest in women, we strengthen the economy for everyone," remarked Mr. Duguid.

    Data from Statistics Canada in 2017 reveals that women make up roughly 17% of the natural resources workforce. "It's time for action. We are thrilled that the CIF-IFC is leading the first national public-private sector partnership targeting gender equity in Canada's forest sector. This initiative will support the recruitment, retention and advancement of women in Canada's diverse and dynamic forest sector," explains Dana Collins, CIF-IFC Executive Director.
