• Zeppelin Systems Products & Solutions Components

Quality makes the difference

As Zeppelin forged ahead with its plant engineering many years ago it was obvious to all parties involved that the venture would only be successful with an uncompromising quality strategy. We therefore decided to produce the key components for our systems ourselves.

Reliability is essential

Now we sell these products to other companies and have become a leading component supplier in the bulk material sector. The innovative solutions, attuned with one another, offer our customers many advantages.

This means that you not only get tried and tested products – but also perfectly harmonized components within the system and the guarantee of being well advised in the product selection and design thanks to the know-how of a leading global plant engineering company – and of course, the speed and flexibility of a powerful industrial group.

Welcome to the future!

Zeppelin is also a leader in terms of digitalization. Our key components are getting smart and lead the way into the digital future. With Zeppelin’s new Smart Components App, our customers will get significant added value from the very beginning: precise information on specifications, spare parts lists, instructions for commissioning, operation, maintenance and service intervals will be part of the standard features.

Everything under control

Sifter for increased reliability and end product quality

Inspecting finished products, whether in the food or plastics industries, is gaining in importance. It is therefore not surprising that, in the food industry, raw materials are meticulously inspected at reception to ensure they do not contain impurities such as pieces of nutshell, small stones in grain or plastic pieces. Requirements for quality control of products has since considerably increased as well in other sectors such as in the carbon black and plastics industries.

The ideal component for this bulk material process is Zeppelin Systems’ rotary sifter. The rotary sifter is used as a preliminary sieve in front of silos, as a final sieve underneath containers or as an inline sifter for pressure-tight operation up to 0.8 bar excess and vacuum pressure in pneumatic conveying systems. The rotary sifter has been successfully used in the food industry for decades. For this reason, all parts coming into contact with the product have been designed in food grade material according to EHEDG guidelines and BG rules and are easy to clean, partly thanks to the sifter drum design. The drum can be easily inspected through the lateral inspection opening of the rotary sifter, cleaned and replaced if necessary. It is available in polyester or stainless steel. If robustness is needed, the wedge wire drum sifter is a particularly sturdy alternative. Additional sealing rings seal the sifter drum from the product chamber.

In the plastics and carbon black industries, the sifter assumes very similar tasks as those in the food industry: to remove foreign matter and verify the particle size. The mesh size of the sifter drum can be customized and ranges from 0.25 to 8 mm. The advantages are mostly seen in the continuous raw material control, i.e. the separation of coarse materials and the loosening and dissolution of product lumps for an improved utilization of the raw material. Furthermore, the sifter protects all sensitive downstream processing machines.

The rotary sifter features a compact and low vibration construction particularly designed for long-lasting superior performance. That is why, for example, the feeding screw and beater bars are equipped with double bearings. As an option, the sifter can be equipped with an automatic sifter drum monitoring (Screen-D-Tect) which continuously monitors the state of the special screen fabrics during operation. Any damage to the sifter or wear to the sifter drum will be detected and signalized. This reduces the risk of production downtimes and reject batches to a minimum. Automatic dedusting of the sifter drum is included as well. The rotary sifter is also naturally available in a design accorting to ATEX directive 94/9/EC for operation in zone 21 and 22.
