Automated bulk storing, pneumatic handling, conveying, blending, drying and loading systems unload rail cars or trucks and end up feeding the blended, dried, and preheated raw material directly into the molding machine or extruder hopper.
Belt conveyor systems, pellet tilters that tilt automatically when the center of gravity shifts to help draw the last bit of material from a container, and beside-the-machine self-contained material loaders.
TOLEDO METAL SPINNING CO.
Standard line of conical hoppers in diam. of 9, 12, 14, 16, 20 and 24 in. with various straight-wall heights. Hoppers include 0.5-in. flange flange (flanj) a projecting border or edge; in dentistry, that part of the denture base which extends from around the embedded teeth to the border of the denture.
1. and a 60[degrees] angle. Stocked units come in stainless steel of various gauges. Aluminum and steel available on special order. Additional fabrication fabrication (fab´rikā´shn),
n the construction or making of a restoration. options include brush-polish finish inside, outside, or both; custom trimmed small-end opening; plasma or laser-cutting holes and slots to specification; and rolling and welding cylinders to basic cones for greater wall heights. Matching stainless lids available.
TUTHILL CORP. M-D PNEUMATICS DIV.
Line of rotary lobe, positive-displacement blowers for pressure and vacuum conveying. Capacities from 20 to 9000 cfm and pressure to 18 psig single stage/40 psig two stage and to 18 in. Hg single stage. Options available to allow blowers to operate in high-temperature or high-performance regimes with lube systems and oil-cooling systems for continuous service. Standard and custom packages available, including options to minimize noise levels.
UNIVERSAL DYNAMICS CORP.
Vacuum and pressure pneumatic conveying systems. On-the-press, self-contained vacuum loaders and central conveying systems service up to 24 individual delivery points. Bulk material storage silos and railcar un-loaders offered as basic equipment packages or as completely engineered and installed plant system. Self-contained vacuum loaders convey up to 1200 lb/hr at distances approaching 60 ft. Central in-plant conveying systems run up to 20,000 lb/hr at distances approaching 500 ft.
Maxi-Vac vacuum-loading system is a regenerative pump unit driven by 230-v or 460-v three-phase motor in 1.5 or 3 hp. Designed for the cellular plant layout, unit uses minimum floor space, while delivering maximum material conveying. Capable of single- or multiple-station loading, Maxi-Vac is suitable for "up-and-in" applications.
Operator configurable 82i vacuum system control can control either one or two vacuum pumps and up to eight individual stations. Either pump can operate any station. No additional wiring required. Optional dual-ratio control for all stations can be added to central panel.
Omni III microprocessor controls feature alarms to monitor system's performance and can control several individual systems through one central controller. Wide range of modular vacuum receivers allows flexibility in handling material from small injection molding machines to high-throughput extrusion lines. Railcar unloaders with single- or double-blower vacuum/pressure systems accommodate conveying distances exceeding 1000 ft.
Quick-material-change systems facilitate rapid changeover. Material or color changes, including hygroscopic materials, can be accomplished in a short time. Equipment is available for individual machines and large central systems. Changeover operation can be manual, or fully automatic using a specially designed QMC QMC
quartermaster corps valve. QMC-I microprocessor controls an entire system, directing the flow of materials from as many as 16 sources to 12 destinations.
Pneumatic and mechanical-handling systems for powders, pellets, regrind, small parts and other dry materials. Systems range from simple up-and-in hopper loaders assembled from standard components to complex microprocessor-controlled distribution and batch weighing systems for multiple ingredients. Check-sieving, sizing and separation of ferrous contaminants can be incorporated in-line.
Standard components include bulk-bag unloaders, bag-dump stations, feed bins, various types of receivers, electric and pneumatic vacuum power sources, wide selection of filtration devices and controls ranging from on/off switches to computer-compatible, microprocessor-based panels with illuminated system displays.
Heavy-duty industrial vacuum-cleaning equipment for wet and dry operations, powered by electricity or compressed air. Portable models, high-capacity material recovery systems, and custom-designed multiple-outlet systems with a central vacuum source are available.
O.S. WALKER CO.
Permanent and electromagnetic separation equipment includes magnetic head pulleys for use in conveyors; permanent and electro-suspended magnets for automatic removal of ferrous material; and permanent and electro-magnetic drum separators. Plate and grate magnets used in chute applications with special automatic removal devices. Eddy-current separators for nonferrous metallic removal.
B.E. WALLACE PRODUCT CORP.
Gantry cranes and accessories load and unload everything from raw materials to finished products to and from storage units, trucks, railroad cars, and barges. Cranes range from 3/4- to 15-ton capacities with heights from 4 to 24 ft and spans to 35 ft.
