Topics Product News, K 2013

At K 2013, Conair Group will introduce its DC-T TouchView control, an easy-to-use interface for monitoring and controlling the polymer drying process.

The control will be part of a central drying cell that includes a W300 Carousel Plus desiccant dryer and a four-hopper ResinWorks system equipped with a Conair Drying Monitor.

The EDC-T TouchView has an eight-inch-diagonal touch-screen screen that shows everything going on in the drying system. The operator can make adjustments with a touch of a fingertip. The screen shows current and historical temperature data and includes precise dew point control.

The DC-T also provides a gateway for control of multiple-hopper central drying cells, like ResinWorks, which combines multiple hoppers with integral air manifolds, ducting and wiring on a sturdy platform. Up to 15 hoppers equipped with Conair temperature controls can be linked to the DC-T.

Also at K, Conair will show show the FLX loading control, an entry-level resin conveying system that has been expanded to handle up to 128 loaders and 40 vacuum conveying pumps, and a TrueBlend TB-250 gravimetric blender.

Data from individual Drying Monitor probes, including graphs showing trends, also can be displayed on the DC-T monitor, or anywhere else, such as a smart phone or tablet, thanks to standard Internet connectivity.

Conair also plans to show the new EP1 and EP2 series of portable chillers, the EPA1A-03 air-cooled model has an onboard process fluid pump and tank.

Also debuting in Germany is the NCF-819 super-tangential granulator, part of new line of machines with footprint dimensions at least 30 percent smaller than similar granulators.

Conair is based in Cranberry Township, Pa.
