Key Technology Presents Impulse(TM) Compact
December 22, 2005 - Key Technology presents Impulse(TM) Compact, a new family of small electromagnetic shakers designed specifically for tight fitting processing and packaging distribution lines that require precise metering and low maintenance drives. Ideal for product mixing lines, ingredient feeding, and scale feeding, Impulse Compact starts and stops quickly to accurately meter product.
Impulse Compact maximizes production flexibility with dedicated solid-state controls that allow conveying pan amplitudes to range from zero to 100 percent to adjust for different products or processing conditions. The electromagnetic shakers can be adjusted from low stroke, high cycle mode for gentle product handling to high stroke, low cycle mode for faster throughput or to handle heavier product.
Key offers the new Impulse Compact in sizes ranging from 200 to 400 mm (8 to 15.7 inches) wide and from 1500 to 2000 mm (5 to 6.5 feet) long. For higher volume applications, Key also offers larger electromagnetic Impulse shakers up to 610 mm (24 inches) wide and up to 3500 mm (11 feet) long. An assortment of drive sizes, product conveying surfaces, and system configurations allow for a wide variety of applications.
The efficient electromagnetic drives featured on Impulse Compact enable precise metering and gentle product handling while minimizing maintenance and maximizing product quality. There are no sliding or rotating parts to wear and no belts or bearings to fail. Furthermore, the electromagnetic drives are oil-free, helping to insure food safety and product quality, particularly when installed above open product zones. Rugged construction makes Impulse Compact shakers ideal for industrial applications that have harsh operating environments. All units are dust and moisture resistant with controls housed in a NEMA 4X rated enclosure to ensure years of trouble-free operation.
Key manufactures the new stainless steel Impulse Compact shakers to satisfy the most stringent sanitation demands in the industry, meeting 3A Dairy Sanitary Standards, USDA, HACCP, and FDA requirements.
