Process Control Corp. makes it easy to flip your lid on its RN-series vacuum receivers, used in central vacuum loading systems.
The Atlanta company said the redesigned lid allows for easier cleaning and replacement of the pellet screen. A more-reliable check valve is another improvement.
In the old design, to change the screen, one had to loosen a clamp completely to remove a heavy lid that was connected to a hose. The new lid boasts two side latches that hold a small pellet screen into the lid.
In other news, Process Control introduced the third in its series of low-cost gravimetric batch blenders, the 2.5kg Guardian. The machine, which can run up to 500 pounds of material an hour, is available with two to four ingredient hoppers.
New features include all-removable hoppers with a metering gate assembly designed so that no material will be left behind in the blender. The 2.5kg blender also uses the company's PCCWeb service, which allows for monitoring the device over the Internet.
