Two units of Gloucester Engineering Co. have introduced new products.

Pearl Technologies Inc.’s new pre-nip chiller spreaders can boost blown film output by as much as 10-20 percent, said Pearl, in Savannah, NY. The spreaders, which mount at the top of the tent frame, are designed for processors that experience blocking or have low ceiling heights. They need only eight inches of vertical space on the collapsing frame, and the company said that in many cases, all you need to do is to remove the top two slates or rollers for installation.

The chiller spreaders are custom designed to fit any line. Other benefits include reducing film temperatures by as much as 50°F, preventing sag at unwind and eliminates wrinkles at the nip assembly.

Future Design Inc. offers a patented Saturn Evacuation System, claimed to reduce airborne contaminants by as much as 80 percent. The SES is a small air ring that fits any aluminum air ring or die. It fits between the die and the primary cooling ring. Connected to the vacuum side of the blower, teh system creates a positive vacuum that draws contamination from the low-pressure zone at the die exit. The polluted air is filtered and the particulates get discharged to a suitable location.

Future Design, based in Mississauga, Ontario, said contaminates include smoke, fumes and vaporous residues that are two heavy to stay airborne, so they settle on equipment frames, railings, electrical components or factory lighting fixtures.

The Saturn Evacuation System can be retrofitted to any die or air ring package.

Gloucester Engineering is based in Gloucester, Mass.
