MAC Equipment Enters New Phase of Development

July 8, 2008
Last year, MAC Equipment, one of North America’s leading providers of pneumatic conveying and air filtration solutions, was acquired by Clyde Process Solutions plc, a UK-listed company who also own and operate Clyde Materials Handling, a leading provider of pneumatic conveying and pneumatic injection solutions targeted predominately at the metals and minerals markets. Clyde Process Solutions acquired MAC Equipment in April 2007 and has now integrated the conveying and injection technologies of Clyde Materials Handling with MAC Equipment to establish a powerful provider of process technologies for the North American market.

In an effort to strengthen MAC’s position as a market leading provider of process solutions, the company has made the decision to enhance its brand and identity. The new MAC Equipment brand retains the characteristics that have helped build its business in the process industry, while incorporating the brand assets inherited from its parent company, Clyde Process Solutions. 
 
MAC Equipment’s new brand was launched at the PTXi Show in Chicago last month. Through the integration of Clyde Materials Handling’s U.S. operations with MAC Equipment, MAC can now offer the process industry a wide range of material handling and air filtration solutions, which encompass: Dense-phase pneumatic conveying for high tonnage, low-velocity transportation of difficult, arduous raw materials; Pneumatic injection for high-accuracy, reliable injection of materials direct to process; Spheri valve for low maintenance, highly durable control of material flow.

These new technologies will complement MAC Equipment’s existing range of pneumatic conveying and air filtration solutions that include: Continuous dense-phase conveying offering true continuous feed, reduced air consumption requirements, and reduced product degradation; Low-pressure continuous dense-phase conveying for gentle handling of fragile food products; Dilute-phase conveying systems, also know as suspension flow, accomplished by metering product into a moving air stream; Central vacuum systems for industrial cleaning needs; Medium-pressure controlled cleaning for the most energy efficient air filtration; Pulse-jet dust filters for tough industrial applications; Custom-built cyclones, dust filters, cartridge collectors with a variety of filter media; Real World lab testing prior to final system selection to ensure the desired results can be achieved.
