Conair basic loaders offer price advantage
Conair Group's basic series of SL self-vacuum loaders is priced 20 percent lower than comparable, full-featured units, the Pittsburgh company said.
SL loaders come in two sizes. The 8-inch model can move 100 pounds of materials. A 12-inch loader can convey 250 pounds. A filter-blowback option provides a blast of compressed air after each conveying cycle, to remove dust and fines from a polyester filter placed under the vacuum motor.
The SL8, priced at $840, can convey material up to 50 feet. The SL12, at $1,174, moves material up to 75 feet.

ESI belt puller puts profiles on the move
Downstream equipment maker Extrusion Services Inc. in Akron, Ohio, introduced a new belt puller for moving large profiles such as pipe and recycled plastic lumber.
The puller has a self-adjusting and air-actuated upper belt assembly to maintain constant belt pressure and pulling power, even if product dimensions change to extreme conditions.
ESI President Pete Anderson said most pullers can lose contact, or jam, when big variances are introduced. ``Ours automatically allows for over 6 inches of variability without readjustment,'' he said.
Options include electric drive — either brushless direct-current, servo or alternating-current vector drive — and multispeed gearboxes.
