Company Profile

The roots of the company date back to the 1935 and NOVATEC began manufacturing dehumidifying equipment for the plastics industry in early 1972. Over the past several decades we have expanded our product line beyond dryers, to become a strong industry force, providing blending and conveying equipment as well as complete resin handling systems. In May 2006, the ownership of the company was transferred into the hands of a management group with vast experience in the auxiliary equipment business.  The company is now the recognized leader for integrated Central Drying and Conveying Systems. We have added to our team of experienced professionals at every level of the organization, from executives, to design and engineering, to sales and marketing, to customer support and field service. Our association with MAGUIRE PRODUCTS not only allows us to provide the most popular blenders in the world as system components but it makes our business group the largest resin handling manufacturing group in North America. The new NOVATEC has already developed the broadest range of resin dryers in the plastics industry. These include wheel dryers, membrane dryers, vacuum dryers, infrared dryers and dual bed dryers. Our PowerGuard(TM) models are designed with patented technology to be the most energy efficient in the industry with heretofore unmatched process stability. We are the only U.S. manufacturer of Infrared dryers for PET and our IntelliPET series of wheel dryers are ideal for PET processors. We have built a state of-the-art Drying Technology Center where we can test the performance of any dryer type against any other dryer type. We invite customers to provide their specific resin and be present to see the actual test results. Only by comparing drying capability and energy efficiency can an informed decision be made about which dryer is best for a given application. We have expanded our offering of vacuum pumps to overcome things like plugged lines and starved process machines.  At the same time, the already-impressive offerings in microprocessor and touch screen controls has been expanded to better serve the needs of processors.  We have developed an impressive line of downstream extrusion equipment that includes, cutters, pullers, Saws and Cooling/Sizing Tanks. These products utilize powerful Servo Drives where practical and a Siemens 7" color touch screen PLC to make set-up, control and recipe management easier than ever. All downstream equipment has a 5-year warranty. Our design emphasis is on innovation to provide new products which save energy, save space and reduce maintenance while providing superior performance at competitive prices. Our customers remain our first priority and we are committed to bringing plastics processors the highest level of quality through our products, services and personal attention. Check out the new NOVATEC.
