Filterless Vacuum Receivers meet needs of plastics processors.

Press Release Summary:

With respective capacities of 1/3–3 ft³ and 1/3–2 ft³, removable-lid VR-FL and hinged-lid VRH-FL models use of cyclonic action to separate material from air flow. Separate vacuum sequencing valve is required for VR-FL models, and VRH-FL models feature built-in sequencing valve (except on 4 in. line sizes). Either style is available with replaceable, bolt-in-place, extended-wear, ceramic-coated options, and design eliminates need for optional Blowback feature.

Novatec Introduces Filterless Vacuum Receivers in Two Different Styles for Plastics Processors

Baltimore, MD – NOVATEC, Inc. is introducing two distinct styles of filterless vacuum receivers for plastics processors.The VR-FL models are their standard “removeable-lid’ receivers that require a separate vacuum sequencing valve while the, very popular, VRH-FL models have hinged lids with a built-in sequencing valve (except on 4” line sizes).

In either case, going filterless eliminates the necessity of cleaning filters and the filter replacement costs. A filter is not required because these models use a cyclonic action to separate the material from the air flow. The necessity of an optional Blowback feature is also eliminated.

NOVATEC continues to use their popular stainless steel body which provides an attractive scratch-resistant surface. The tangential material inlet with gasketed check valve, minimizes degradation of material while also minimizing harm to the receiver walls.

The hinged lid models are popular because the lid swings up and locks in place so the interior of the receiver can be safely cleaned after material changes. They also have a local ON/OFF switch so the operator does not have to walk to a central control to turn the unit OFF.

When conveying particularly abrasive materials, either style is available with extended wear ceramic coated options that are bolted in place and can be replaced, when necessary.

The VR-FL models are available in capacities of 1/3 to 3 ft3 while the VRH-FL models are available from 1/3 to 2 ft3. Machine mount styles are available with multiple glass sizes for most models.

All VR-FL and VRH-FL models include a 2-year warranty.
