A unique design allows the lid to be hinged and stay open.
The Red Lion PAX2A is designed for applications in which two parameters need to be visualized simultaneously, such as reading flow rate through a pipeline while totalizing the gallons, or indicating the temperature of an oven while displaying the set point value. The unit's main LCD offers three programmable colors, so users can easily identify process control variables.
The 720 Food Forming Machine is designed for small to medium processors and is versatile enough to run beef, pork, poultry, seafood and more. Featuring a 300-pound hopper, the unit has a variable speed of 15 to 65 strokes per minute. Its usable mold plate area is 9" wide by 6" front to back, with a mold plate thickness 1/8" through 1 1/4".
Featuring a 225-pound hopper with a counter-balanced safety interlocked lid, the 180 Mixer/Grinder provides high speed ground meat production. A stainless steel "Figure 8" mixing paddle blends fat to lean faster and easier. A minimum exposed feed screw prevents temperature rise, resulting in an evenly blended mixture that looks better longer.
The Gladiator Acoustic Switch uses acoustic wave technology in a new sender/receiver form for blocked chute detection, point level detection and anti-collision for heavy machinery. An amplifier powers two AW transducers, and both units pulse and receive each other's acoustic echoes. When the path between the transducers is blocked, the units immediately detect the presence/absence change of the return signal and trigger a communications relay.
Platinum-cured Silicone Tubing is available in 49 sizes from 0.030" to 1.000" I.D. The product is manufactured from low volatile grade silicone that is certified by NSF. The tubing is flexible and offers a hardness value of 50 Shore A. It contains no animal derived ingredients and will not impart an odor or taste to products flowing within.
A Do-It-Yourself Visual Controls Buyers Guide features Lean workplace and 5S visual management solutions that give users the ability to quickly create signs, banners and other visuals onsite. Educational training resources are also included to help companies bridge the gap between visual education and visual tools.
UPES® Resin is a reactor grade resin that simplifies compounding while providing additional benefits to the end-product. The versatility of the product offers enhanced compatibility with various polymer systems and broadens the processing window of most polyolefins. The product enables improved processability, material source reduction and energy savings.
The RTR-500NW is an Ethernet LAN connected Data Collector for wireless data loggers. The product automatically downloads recorded data from remote units via a 900MHz wireless link and transmits the data by email to an FTP server, making it possible to share and manage data over a network without a PC.
The LRD8200 Label Sensor uses technology that works well with all materials and artwork, including paper, plastic, foil, hotstamp, clear, opaque or translucent. The product has a bar graph indicator that makes the setup clear for the operator. The Triple-Check Verification system allows the user to simply glance at the display for verification.
A new Washdown Package is available for tray and bliss formers. With this product, it is possible for formers to be located inside the clean area of a packaging room, allowing manufacturers to decrease floor space usage and reduce costs by eliminating lengthy conveyors that bring trays into the packaging room through an opening in the wall.
The new Dual Parison Blow Molding System enables production rates from 800 bottles per minute to 1,200 bottles per minute. The machine has 40 stations, a 4-inch extruder and a high-output dual parison diehead. The turnkey system includes molds, bottle conveying and a high-speed rotary spin trimmer.
OMH-RL31-06 Mounting Brackets are designed to flexibly mount photoelectric sensors in multi-axes alignment applications. They feature half-clamp mounting in which the unit fastens on a 12-mm diameter rod or bolt. Once fastened, the half-clamp can be rotated 360° around the rod or bolt to best align the sensor.
The new ICON metal detector features a touch screen panel and uses Quad-Core processing to deliver fast, accurate detection of metal contaminants and detailed data collection. Gathered information is stored in an onboard database and is accessible via USB or wired Ethernet. Data can be exported in Microsoft Excel or PDF format.
From pre-engineering and project definition to plant start-up, the new Integration Solutions Group provides services that can include the integration of third-party products with other systems to meet the specific needs of each application. This service is targeted toward potato products, fresh-cut produce, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturing.
The high speed 4-axis MPK50 Material Handling Robot is made for packaging, palletizing and other material handling applications. A slim design allows the unit to reach into confined spaces, improving system productivity. Other product features include: Large work envelope with full 360-degree rotation.
The MicroCurrent HVLD Leak Detection System applies high voltage to a hermetically sealed package made of non-conductive material. If a pinhole or crack is present on the package, the discharge current flows into the package through the pinhole or crack. The defective package is detected by the differential of the current flow.
The Solidquid™ solid/liquid delivery system features numerous options to improve process efficiency and operator safety when dealing with agglomerated materials. The unit uses frame-mounted pneumatic bag agitators to maintain uninterrupted flow of sluggish materials from bulk bags. An access chamber with integral dust collector not only pulls airborne particulate away from the operator, but eliminates lost product and a potential waste stream.
The new range of SL submersible wastewater pumps minimizes known risk factors and reduces maintenance requirements and costs. Designed for submerged use, the products will handle municipal or industrial wastewater, wastewater with fibers, drainage and groundwater, process and cooling water. Two types of impleller are offered: The SLV impeller provides free passage of solids up to 4 inches in diameter, and the SL1 is designed for large flows of raw sewage.
