PCC Announces 2nd Generation of the Guardian Batch Blender Series
Upgrade includes a top to bottom electrical and mechanical re-design.
Atlanta, Georgia, November 17, 2009 - Process Control Corporation, the leading innovator and manufacturer of auxiliary equipment and systems for the plastic processing industry, announces the second generation of its popular Guardian® series batch weigh blender. First introduced in 1999, the upgraded blender boasts a top to bottom electrical and mechanical re-design. The new color touch screen operator interface is now standard and can be remote mounted up to 1000 feet from blender. The all-new control system, using "off-the-shelf" electronics, features optimized blender control software for improved accuracy and increased total blender throughput.
Supply hoppers are designed as individual weldments, with no dividers, for better cleanout. Each hopper has one 90-degree side and no transition sections for improved material flow and features access doors with re-designed latches. The supply hopper assembly can be rotated 90 degrees for ease of installation. Re-designed and removable cartridge style dispensing gates for ease of maintenance and clean out are equally sized, so any ingredient can be dispensed from any hopper, regardless of percentage. Optional dispensing gate restrictor plates are available for optimized performance for very low percentage ingredients.
All models offer dual hinged access doors for weigh hopper/mixer access with quick release latches. A 3-Phase mixer motor and starter come standard for sizes 5 KG and larger. The base frame weldment has been re-designed for easier manufacturing and improved blender stability, and the mixing chamber scroll has been extended and welded for improved mixing and ease of cleanout. The mixer discharge gate comes standard and is also designed as a removable cartridge. The weigh hopper assembly has been re-designed featuring three-point mounting for easy installation and alignment, and with an optimized dual loadcell mounting arrangement.
