Resin Conveying System Maximizes Throughput While Minimizing Material and Machine Abuse

Facebook Share Icon LinkedIn Share Icon Twitter Share Icon Share by EMail icon Print Icon

Patented technology allows plastics processors to convey material at whatever speed provides the best throughput without damaging equipment or resin.

Resin conveying is the lifeblood of a plastics processing facility, distributing materials to machines and making the actual conversion of pellets into parts, possible. On March 12, processors can learn about a new patented technology that delivers that lifeblood in the most efficient means possible, without damaging pellets or equipment along the way.

Conair says its patented Wave Conveying system virtually eliminates pellet fracturing, "angel hair" and equipment wear caused by high-speed vacuum conveying. Comprised mainly of standard vacuum-conveying components, the Wave Conveying system optimizes material delivery.

In the free webinar, attendees will learn about the problems associated with high-speed vacuum conveying (also called dilute-phase conveying), which has heretofore been the de facto approach to plastics resin conveying. The presentation also discusses the development and testing of the new system; a general description of its design and operation; and customer use cases to confirm its practicability and effectiveness. 

Presenting this information will be Doug Brewster, Conveying Product Manager for the Conair Group, and the primary developer of Wave Conveying—the patented variable-speed conveying system. 

Register for the webinar today.

  • Putting Blender Accuracy To the Test

    When you look at competing claims for gravimetric batch blenders, the issue is accuracy. Virtually all makers of the equipment claim similar accuracy, but the numbers appear to mean different things to different people. You need to know what counts for you and how to test accuracy with your own resin and regrind.

  • Five Quick Steps Toward Better Blending

    Rising costs of resins and additives, along with higher demands for quality and use of regrind, place a premium on proficient blending. Here are some steps to get you there.

  • Understanding Gravimetric Blender Accuracy & Payback

    Accuracy is one of the least understood aspects of blending. The differences between batch and continuous blenders, how blend accuracy is calculated and controlled, which blender type is more accurate, how much accuracy is really required, and how payback is calculated are discussed here.
