|Product range Detail:||QUANTUM BATCH GRAVIMETRIC BLENDER
High precision gravimetric blenders that radically change the way injection moulding machines and extruders are fed with blends of materials (virgin, recycled, masterbatch and additives). The unit is immune to vibrations and can be used with all plastic materials. The design allows for rapid material change and simplified cleaning.
Its flexibility derives from two distinctive and unique characteristics:
• Smooth stainless steel construction makes it suitable for all applications, including food, medical etc.
• Every blender comes with up to 6 dosing stations, which can easily be removed for emptying or cleaning. The dosing stations can be used across all Quantum blenders in a factory.
MDW BATCH GRAVIMETRIC BLENDERS
Units can dose and weigh up to 8 granular materials, allowing selection of the most appropriate hopper capacities and dosing devices. The blenders can be combined with injection and blow moulding machines and extruders, covering production rates from 30 up to a maximum of 1800 kg/h.
The powerful and quick control system guarantees an accuracy of ± 0.3%. Dosing percentages of 0.5% are possible with the slide gate device. The fast scanning software and quick adjustment of the blender’s functioning contribute to the blender’s immunity from the vibrations of the processing machine.
The new mixer, with semi-spherical shape and the particular design of the shaft thoroughly mix the entire mass of granules, without preferential flows or material stagnation.
MXP BATCH/LOSS-IN-WEIGHT GRAVIMETRIC BLENDERS
The MXP gravimetric blenders combine in one single machine the advantages of batch dosing with the precise and rapid throughput adjustment of the loss-in-weight technology. MXP blenders can dose up to 6 components (virgin material, regrind, masterbatch and additives), with a total throughput of up to 1000 kg/h.
They represent the ideal solution to satisfy the requirements for dosing and process control in the extrusion field, in particular in the production of single and multi-layer blown and cast films, and of pipes. The MXP dosers allow for elimination of wastage of raw material and ensure constant quality production.
High precision and batch repeatability:
• Resolution higher than 1/100 of a gram
• No interruption of the extrusion process: it is possible to access the doser and modify the recipe, without stopping production.
|Additional services provided:||Piovan’s extensive range of products includes: hopper loaders, material dryers, volumetric, gravimetric and weight loss blenders, granulators, thermo-regulators and Aquatech chillers and complete cooling systems. Bespoke centralised systems can be provided, including supervisory software that controls plant productivity. All products and systems are backed up by an extensive UK network of field based engineers, including 24 hour 7 days per week support.|

|Company Name:||PL Machinery
|Specialist markets/sectors:||All sectors within the plastics industry.|
|Product range Detail:||Our range of Main Tech hopper loaders includes single phase and venturi (motorless, compressed air driven) models for throughputs up to 200 kg/hour, as well as three phase models that can cope with throughputs right up to 5000 kg/hour. All loaders have stainless steel construction and come with the option of dual material loading using a ratio valve (proportional valve).
Our main Tech range of volumetric dosing units offer precise control via a choice of inclined stainless steel metering screws. Features such as constant torque brushless motors and teflon coated components ensure accuracy and repeatability. Units for dosing liquid additives are also available.
Our range of Conair TrueBlend Series Gravimetric Blenders are available with 4,5, or 6 stations. Steep-sided material compartment
allow resin to flow evenly and freely through vertical dispense valves into the weigh chamber. Efficient mixing assures full integration of all recipe ingredients. Fully enclosed cabinet design assures no pellet spillage and clean operation. Standard convenient features such as quick access material compartment bins, a hinged chassis access door and removable components in the mixing chamber reduce downtime during cleanout.
