Casein Plant, Toner Manufacturing and Plastics-Related Equipment Up for Online Bid

“We’re coming off a tank and vessel auction that closed at an average of 15 percent above the expected auction value,” explains AIM's spokesperson, Bruce Baird. “We’re hoping to match or even exceed that level with our February auctions.”

While the nation may still be reeling from one of the coldest and snowiest winters on record, things are heating up this February at the Aaron Industrial Marketplace (AIM). During the shortest month of the year, AIM will hold not one, not two, but three major process equipment auctions. Slated for either February 22–23 or February 23–24, these online bidding wars will feature a complete casein plant, toner (pulverized) manufacturing equipment and plastics-related equipment.

The first of these auctions, the Toner (Pulverized) Manufacturing Equipment Auction will take place on February 22-23, 2011. Consisting of 100 process equipment pieces, this lot of items is currently being removed from the Konica Minolta facility. The individual pieces will be stored offsite and are available for inspection. They include Nippon pneumatic pulse jet dust collectors; micron mikro-pulsaire pulse jet dust collectors, alpine turbo plex mills, micron screw conveyors and victory mills from Hosokawa; a Flex-Kleen pulse jet dust collector; Spencer turbine blowers; pneumatic conveyors, bin vent dust collectors, excent feeders, dispersion separators, supersonic jet mills and metalfab volumetric feeders from NPK; and transtor tote bins, elevators, a table top belt conveyor, high intensity mixers, volumetric feeders, twin screw extruders, a dehumidifying dryer, a propane storage tank, double belt coolers, a single cartridge dust collector system, kryptron eddy mills, compressed air dryers, a double belt cooler, volumetric constant feeders, package chillers, an impactor grinder and a vibratory conveyor from various name brand manufacturers.

Before bidding draws to a close on this lot, two other auctions will commence bidding on the Aaron Industrial Marketplace. Running simultaneously from February 23–24, 2011 will be a Complete Casein Plant Auction consisting of 18 lots and a 50-piece Plastics-Related Equipment auction. The former items will be offered at auction as either a complete plant or individual components. The lot is composed of an OZSM Fluid bed dryer, four blowers, a Sharples P300 centrifuge, several stainless steel tanks in a wide range of capacities, two DSM screens, twenty pumps, three plate heat exchangers, three inline filters, a 7 pass condenser, and two aluminum hoppers.

Finally, the Plastics-Related Equipment Auction will consist of injection mold machines from Cincinnati, Sandretto, and Ferromatik; Cumberland and Allsteele granulators; S. F. Scheer Strand pelletizers; a United Farm Tools Inc. hammermill; a Pallman Type mill; an Oakes continuous mixer; a Thoresen McCosh gravimetric blender; a Conair Conomix blender; a Killion cast film station; Genca, NRM, Berlyn and Davis single screw extruders; a Kenco taber forming/cut-off press; Boston Matthews, Peachtree Tech and Gatto belt pullers; Metaplast, RDN and Conair/Gatto vacuum sizing tanks; Tetra Profile winders; AEC Whitlock WD series cabinet dryers; Conair dehumidifying dryers; Cincinnati Milacron solid bed style dryers, Thoreson McCosh closed loop triple dessicant bed dryers; a Conair small carousel dehumidifying dryer; Atlas Copco two-stage oil-free rotary screw compressors; Kongsklide high-pressure multi-air blowers; a Royale Extruder, Dake Corp 75-ton press; and a Spencer Industravac system.

The AIM team is highly optimistic about this trio of upcoming auctions. “We’re coming off a tank and vessel auction that closed at an average of 15 percent above the expected auction value,” explains the marketplace’s spokesperson, Bruce Baird. “We’re hoping to match or even exceed that level with our February auctions.”
