Available in two sizes, Conair Multi-Hopper Carts can be equipped with four dependable Conair CH Series hoppers, providing drying portability, flexibility and productivity.

Making the Cut: Pick the Right Cutting Technology for Pipe, Tube or Profile
Here is review of popular extrusion cutting technologies, strengths and limitations of each, and common problems and solutions.  

Conveying: Pump is Quiet, Powerful, Energy-Efficient
The multi-stage regenerative impeller design of the new Conair HRG Series vacuum pumps is the key to developing deep vacuum power for conveying plastic pellets over long distances, while keeping noise levels comfortably low.

Conair TrueBlend gravimetric blenders

How to Blend More Accurately with Gravimetric Blenders
With intelligent and adaptive control technology combined with precision hardware designed, today’s best gravimetric blenders can deliver previously unachievable levels of accuracy. You’ll see the difference in more consistent injection molded or extruded product and reduced colorant and additive waste.

Act Sooner, Not Later, on Auxiliary Equipment Alarms
There can be real financial, safety, and quality benefits for processors who train plant personnel to interpret and respond promptly to various alarms. Real-world examples offer proof.  

Conair, Partners Run TPE Tubing, ABS 3D Filament at Medical Show
Conair joins Davis-Standard and Zumbach to demo complete system that switched between tubing and filament runs at Plastec West Show in California.

Heating/Cooling: Temperature Control Offers Non-Ferrous Cast-Bronze Construction
For Conair’s Thermolator TCUs that use water as coolant there is now an optional non-ferrous construction for all wetted parts.

Former Conair President Kenyon Dies
Served as president and COO of auxiliary equipment supplier for more than 18 years.

Resin Drying: Natural Gas Powered Process Heaters Offer Energy Savings
Conair says that with its GasTrac process air heaters, processors can realize energy cost savings of up to 70% by replacing electricity with natural gas as a heat source for dehumidifying dryers.

Resin Drying: Central System Offers Individualized Hopper Monitoring, Trending and Control
New system from Conair allows implementation of advanced control features on a per-hopper basis, including on older Conair dryers, as well as some competitive units.

Conair D Series large desiccant dryer

Drying: Large Dryer Series Simplifies, Makes More Features Standard
All the units in the new D Series of large dryers from Conair will feature desiccant-wheel technology, a common touchscreen control and an expanded set of standard features.

A granulator with three-blade rotor and tangential cutting chamber, which works well for PET preforms, won’t necessarily work for PET bottles (see next image).

How to Avoid Unpleasant Surprises in Size Reduction
Size-reduction equipment doesn’t get much attention unless there’s a problem or an entirely new application challenge. So when it’s time to repair or upgrade, take these steps to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

Molding 2019 panel discussion

VIDEO: Injection Molding Experts Confront Industry’s Challenges
The technology divide in molding; worst practices; low pay and less training—a panel of injection experts tackled some of the tough issues facing processors today during a panel at Molding 2019.

Conair mobile plastic resin dryer

True Portability Comes to Waterless Press-Side Dryers for Injection Molding
Conair’s new line of mobile resin dryers brings a whole new meaning to “portable.” With waterless desiccant drying and conveying combined on a compact, mobile base, these versatile units save on installation costs, utility costs and maintenance.

Conair Wave Conveying

Resin Conveying System Maximizes Throughput While Minimizing Material and Machine Abuse
Patented technology allows plastics processors to convey material at whatever speed provides the best throughput without damaging equipment or resin.

How to Maximize Your Conveying System Performance
If your conveying system isn’t up to snuff, and you don’t have the budget to overhaul or expand it, don’t lose hope. There are many factors that could be limiting your conveying performance, and a number of them cost little or nothing to fix.
