Technology Review

Self-Contained Air Loaders
SVL series self-contained air loaders provide efficient conveying of materials from drums, bins, material bags, and gaylords with the use of an efficient compressed air venturi system. Available in several configurations to fit just about any single loading material conveying application, the modular design of the SVL series is simple to use, operate, and maintain. A standard flange with quick release fasteners allows for fast and easy material changes and cleanout, while a simple control assembly provides easy-to-use operation.

Multifunctional Classifier
The DC classifier is a multifunctional unit designed to dry, cool, and classify all in one machine. Developed specifically for the plastics industry, it utilizes either positive or negative air flow to draw moisture and heat away from the particulates to dry or cool the material. The material continues through the machine to the classification stages where oversize and fine particles can be removed. The unit was designed with modular decks for easy removal for cleaning in-between process changes when more than one material type or color is processed in the same machine. The classifier can also be designed with casters for trouble-free mobility around the lab or production facility.

Electric Shakers
The patent-pending M-series electric shakers can handle anything from low-volume applications to central scrap removal systems that carry several thousand lb/hr. All shakers feature a compact footprint, high convey speeds, and quiet operation. Operating without the need for maintenance, spare parts, or lubrication, they cost far less to operate than their pneumatic counterparts, which require expensive compressed air. Designed for the rugged factory environment, they are available in a variety of sizes. Optional multipan and rack and pinion tracking systems are available.
