Chemical Processing and How HGR Can Help Your Business

chemical processing

Chemical Processing equipment may be the unsung hero of the manufacturing industry. The offensive line of industry, doing the dirty work so the CNCs can hog the spotlight and take up all of the salary cap. I digress. It’s not often you go out looking for a chemical storage tank, filtration system, or mixer. When the time comes, you may not even know where to begin. Luckily there is only one place you need to look. HGR’s chemical processing category is a one stop shop for used equipment. The selection of used machinery is so large, there had to be sub-categories created to help navigate inventory. Below is a breakdown of those categories.
Filter Systems
Filter systems like a Dayton Water Systems Pump and Filter may be the typical sort of items that come to mind when looking in this category, but there is more than meets the eye. HGR doesn’t stop at used machinery. This is where the term surplus supplies comes in. If HGR buys the machine, we want everything that comes with it, including those boxes of new filters sitting on the shelf. This value gets turned over to the customer when they purchase new filters at surplus prices. The selection varies day to day and there is not a stock of the same product, so this is hit or miss. However, finding a year or two worth of them can help keep costs down.
Industrial Mixers
These aren’t the mixers Grandma used to make her famous oatmeal raisin cookies in. We are talking about cauldrons made of metal the size of an SUV. HGR has smaller tabletop industrial mixers if that fits your needs better. The makes and models vary and the only way to see if HGR has the industrial mixer you need is by looking. There are a few options on the ;eft hand side of the screen to help navigate the large inventory easier. Manufacturer may be the best place to start so you can narrow down the make you prefer or need. Sorting it by price can also help if one of the items you are looking for would fall on either end of the spectrum.
Tanksabrams m1 tank
Strap on your helmet and climb into the newest Abrams M-1 and ride into glory. Okay not really, but wouldn’t that be awesome? Chemical storage tanks may not be able to traverse over any terrain, but they can store your hazardous or toxic material, saving it from environmental exposure. That in itself is a bit heroic. Searching through this category you will find stainless steel mixing tanks, horizontal storage tanks, acetylene tanks, and more. HGR gets in hundreds of new arrivals daily so if you don’t see it now, check back the next day and it may be. You never know what you might find next.

Woodworking Industry Makes Its Own Space

The woodworking industry consists of processing timber using mechanical and chemical-mechanical treatment. This includes raw materials from wood and various types of wood. One of the main products from this industry is the production of furniture. The woodworking industry has found a way to battle the pandemic by optimizing space in your home closets. There is a resurrection of Closet Con, where design meets manufacturing. Here is more about Closet Con.

The Birth of Closet Con

At the Texas Woodworking Show, in 2005,  the first Closet Con was born. The idea had success, so later that year they decided to have the conference in Santa’a Clara, California. The success continued until the recession of 2007 hit. It was at this time they expanded to include cabinets for the show. This was to help bolster the woodworking industry as a whole. The recession and the effects of it started to distance themselves in the rear view mirror.  The industry rebounded stronger than ever.

Over a decade later, Closet Con and the woodworking industry are facing a different adversity with COVID looming over everything. The convention is monitoring CDC guidelines and keeping flexibility in mind.  The show is scheduled to take place in Palm Beach, Florida in June of 2021. Closets have also expanded and taken their talents outside of the bedroom and have embraced providing solutions for every room of the house. Given that we are spending more time in our houses than ever before, optimizing your space with organizational shelving is important for your own sanity, as well as cleanliness.

It is because of this large volume of used machinery that some of the items get overlooked.

Welding curtains, current controls, and wire are also available at lower costs than buying a new welder or welding supplies. Be sure to see what all we have. Here is a little more about the types of welders in our sub categories. 

Spot welders use a process called resistance welding. This process uses heat from an electrical current, and by applying pressure. Typically this process is used weld two or more pieces of sheet metal together. One of the major benefits to spot welding, is the ability to send a large amount of energy to a small spot in a short time. This lets the particular weld reach high temperatures without causing the heat to travel across the whole piece of metal. The resistance between electrodes and the magnitude of the duration of the current determine the amount of heat delivered. 

Arc welders also use electricity to create heat, and this heat is used to melt the metal and when it cools, the metal binds to each other. There is an arc between the welding stick and the base material at the point of contact which causes that reaction. The weld area is typically protected by some sort of shielding gas, vapor, or slag. Arc welding was developed in the 19th century and was a pivotal part of ship building during the Second World War. 

Seam welders are used to make gaseous or liquid joints for applications in sheet metal. This welder also uses a roller instead of using a stick. This method is mainly used on a variety of metals in pipes including its use on auto mufflers. HGR has all of these types of used welders in stock and ready to go. Look through the website and see for yourself. Mae sure you check back often. New arrivals are coming in daily.

Buying a new shear or press brake can really tax your budget, so buying used machinery may be a great option for your fabrication business or machine shop. While band saws, shears, and press brakes may crowd the fabrication equipment category, there are plenty of other items to be found. There are also hundreds of items coming in daily so you never know what you may stumble across when browsing HGR Industrial Surplus. 

A quick category search came across a few power rolls, roll formers, a riveter, and a coil reel. Not to mention your typical fabrication equipment. Let’s look at a few. 

Man working a roll former

Roll formers are used in a process of the continuous bending of sheet metal, strip or coil stock. This process allows operations like notching, punching, and welding to be performed in-line. Roll forming has been around for a very long time, dating back to as early as 600 BCE in the areas of the Middle East and Southern Asia. They were using the basics of what we would come to know as a rolling mill. The more streamlined mills that are more familiar today started to surface from DaVinci’s drawings and were created across Europe and Britain. This history has set up the industries in which roll formers are used today. 

Coil reel in use

Coil reels are another great item you will come across in HGR’s fabrication category.  According to – Coil is a type of conductor wire, such as copper, in a form that is cylindrical. It is wrapped around an iron core which creates an inductor or electromagnet that stores magnetic energy. Companies that focus on coil processing solutions cater to various metal-working industries around the world since they are aware that one size does not fit all. In process applications, it is the energy transfer efficiency that is the most important performance factor for coils. You can see what types of coil reels HGR currently has in stock to help your company.

Gap bed lathes have similarities to toolroom lathes. The major difference is that gap bed lathes have the ability to adjust the diameter and longer workspaces. By moving the bed away from the headstock, you can increase the swing. The swing, is the largest diameter of work that can be carried between the centers of the lathe. See what Gap Bed Lathes HGR has to offer here.

Clausing Lathes at HGR Industrial Surplus

Clausing is one of many manufacturers you will come across when browsing through HGR’s robust inventory of used machinery and surplus supplies. Currently, the inventory boasts more than 20 thousand items available for purchase.  The inventory includes Lathes, CNC Machines, Drill Presses, Maintenance Supplies, Woodworking Equipment, and too many others to name. Let’s take a closer look at Clausing and their history. 

Founded by Paul Clausing in 1931, there were three factors that motivated him to enter the lathe industry. He purchased a South Bend Lathe and used it as a hobby lathe and began thinking. First, he believed he could make a better lathe than South Bend Lathes. Second, was the thought the his current career in the Monarch Film Company didn’t have a viable future. Finally, Paul clashing decided he wanted to be his own boss. So, Paul found a small business in Ottumwa, Iowa and began making hobby-sized lathes that were sold at Sears. 

Paul didn’t do this alone however. In March of 1932, Otto moved to Iowa to work with his brother. Otto was three years older than Paul and had a string mechanical aptitude at an early age. When he was around 11, Otto would take apart his parent’s tabletop clock. This model in particular was called a grandfather’s clock, meaning it had a pendulum. Taking it apart may not be out of the ordinary for children, but putting it back together, and in working order, before his parent’s return was impressive. It was this that made him essential to his brothers business. 

The original factory was a meager 2,000 sqft. And housed a few pieces of light machinery. The great depression took it’s toll however and this lead to Sears cancelling their orders for the hobby lathes they were creating. The primary product they began manufacturing was a lathe attachment called a slide rest. They were supplying these slide rests to a company called, Duro. With finances being dire and the business battling the depression, it wasn’t until 1935 that they were able to purchase a planer. This would allow Otto to plane the first lathe beds for woodturning lathes. In 1936, Clausing broke through with what would become a mainstay of their business. It was a screw-cutting lathe, that later evolved into the Series 100. 

The history of Clausing is interesting and is worth the read.
