Each PurgeX operates as an individual pump and is available in single feed for multiple (2-24) feed outlets. Each injector is precisely adjustable in liquid output of 0.012 cu in. to 0 per cycle. High output pressures can be achieved because of a 9 to 1 difference in air piston size. Pressures to 1000 psi output can be achieved with 120 psi air. Minimum air pressure required to operate air injector pump is 40 psi.
Complete PurgeX modular system is available with built-in controls and reservoir. Related accessories also available. System can be utilized for an entire plant or for an individual system on a single machine.

ProRate To divide proportionately. To adjust, share, or distribute something or some amount on a pro rata basis. II high-capacity auger feeder, designed for applications requiring feed rates from 450 to 3500 lb/hr, mounts directly on a molding machine, extruder or mixer and has a stainless-steel housing and auger. Quick-release band clamps permit the motor, bearing housing, and auger assembly to be easily cleaned.
PROCESS CONTROL CORP.
Line of continuous, low-intensity mixer/blenders with either gravimetric or volumetric blending.
MV/MX series machine-mounted volumetric blenders features inclined augers, on-line sampling, quick clean-out, continuous mixing, and optional counter or computer control. Can handle up to six ingredients, including flake regrind at rates up to 5000 lb/hr per ingredient. Blenders can be converted to gravimetric operation.
BG series machine-mounted continuous gravimetric blenders is designed to blend up to eight ingredients accurately at up to 5000 lb/hr. Using a computer, blend ratios by weight can be entered or selected from hundreds of recipes. Unit meters ingredients from weighed hoppers, using loss-in-weight control, through a proprietary cascade mixing chamber, where homogenization homogenization (həmŏj'ənəzā`shən), process in which a mixture is made uniform throughout. Generally this procedure involves reducing the size of the particles of one component of the mixture and dispersing them evenly occurs without requiring any moving parts. Blended mixture then flows as a "plug" through an integral tube directly above the extruder throat, eliminating any chance of demixing. Features include increased computer speed and memory, factory-wired weigh and drive system, supported SPI standard interface, easy access for machine cleanout, one-piece loading platform and clear plastic doors on each hopper.
