Vacuum Dryer offers real-time material consumption info/control.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Oct 02, 2013 With throughput of up to 196 lb/hr, VBD™ 150 vacuum resin dryer uses gravity to move material through vertically arranged stages of drying process. Material discharge from one stage to next is controlled via slide-gate valves, eliminating most moving parts and gaskets. Along with continuous batching operation, system features 3 vertically arranged, insulated, stainless steel-lined vessels for, respectively, heating, application of vacuum, and retention of resin in dry state.
Purging Recovery System transforms purgings into regrind.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
May 01, 2013 Producing uniform granulate with minimized dusting, Purging Recovery System™ (PRS) optimizes efficiency of granulating polystyrene, flexible vinyl, and other polymers that might otherwise degrade under shear forces of size reduction, causing backup or clumping. In PRS, rotor planer uses 12 knives to slice or plane rock-like purging into small chips. Then, second-stage granulator with 0.250 in. holes in screen reduces chips to regrind. Air generated by blower cools material, preventing melting.
Vacuum Resin Dryer provides trouble-free operation.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Apr 02, 2013 Configured for mounting on shop floor or on mezzanine, 6.8 x 3.7 x 16 ft VBD™-1000 offers 1,000 lb/hr throughput capability. Vacuum-drying consists of multi-stage, continuous batching operation carried out in 3 heavily insulated, stainless steel-lined vessels – heating hopper, vacuum vessel, retention / take-away hopper – arranged vertically. Slide-gate valves for dispensing material from one vessel to another have accuracy per dispense of ±4 g.
Purging Recovery System handles difficult plastics.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Jan 09, 2012 Featuring 2-stage operation, Purging Recovery System(TM) first slices or planes rock-like purgings into small pieces, then reduces pieces to uniform regrind. System is applicable to flexible vinyl, which stretches when worked by cutting blades and can jam conventional granulators. In addition, system can process shear-sensitive polymers like polystyrene, which can melt as frictional heat builds up in standard equipment.
Vacuum Unloader does not require operator intervention.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Sep 08, 2011 Sweeper(TM) is equipped with dual control that automatically switches from Sweeper in empty box to second Sweeper in an adjacent full one, eliminating downtime. Unit, which completely empties containers without need for box tilters, can be supplied in particular size that accommodates 64 mm hoses and European-style octobins that hold 1,000 kg of resin. Sized for Gaylord boxes that hold 1,000-1,500 lb, original model comes in 2 versions that accommodate vacuum line hoses with 1.5 and 2.5 in. dia.
Gravimetric Blender provides throughputs up to 900 lb/hr.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Jan 05, 2011 Intended for injection molders and extrusion processors, Maguire® WSB 260R4 features 6 hopper bins, including 2 large bins for natural resin and regrind and 4 minor-ingredient bins that are removable for color and additive changes. While materials in large bins are dispensed by means of slide gates, additive dispensing is carried out with vertical valves. Removable bins are equipped with integral shutoffs to eliminate spillage and hinged lids to facilitate clean-out.
Gravimetric Blender precisely doses difficult materials.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Nov 15, 2010 Suited for use by plastics processors, MaxiBatch(TM) 2400 Weigh Scale Blender is rated for process throughputs to 6,000 lb/hr and handles raw materials in various forms: regular pellets and regrind, bulk powders, and flake as well as bridge-prone ingredients such as wood flour. Design accommodates up to 12 removable hoppers for as many ingredients, and hoppers incorporate different dispensing devices. Microprocessor makes corrections from batch to batch, maintaining accuracy within ±0.1%.
Gravimetric Feeder delivers material at up to 80 lb/hr.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Jul 22, 2010 Used for feeding colorants and additives into plastics processing machines, motor-driven MGF system delivers material at rates to 80 lb/hr. Controllers for MGF feeders can be networked with Gravimetric Gateway(TM) (G2(TM)) software, which provides material usage reports, displays alarms from anywhere in network, gives access to specific machines from remote locations, and monitors inventory levels. Use of load cells to monitor loss in weight of colorant in hopper provides accuracy.
Touchscreen Blender Control allows rapid response to product runs.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Dec 03, 2009 Linux computer-based touchscreen control for Maguire® Weigh Scale Blender incorporates range of capabilities that enable operators to rapidly adjust for processing machine vibration, differences in raw material bulk density, and other process variables. Controller stores up to 99 recipes, is equipped with Ethernet and USB ports, and measures 7 x 9 x 3 in. Unit can be set to deliver text in multiple languages and is available in retrofit package for existing blenders.
Size-Reduction System turns reclaimed purgings into regrind.Maguire Products, Inc. Aston, PA 19014
Oct 09, 2009 Purging Recovery System(TM) enables purgings - rock-like lumps of plastic that are byproducts of job and color changes - to be reclaimed as valuable raw material. Dual-stage system slices or planes hard lumps of plastic into small pieces and then reduces pieces to uniform, high-quality regrind. Shock-resistant in operation, system features heavy-duty construction with machine base and sound enclosure that minimize noise. Design also facilitates access for loading
