Auxiliary equipment maker ACS Group has added the EconoLoad hopper loader to its new Economizer line.
The loader can handle 175-375 pounds an hour, with minimal maintenance. Features include a stainless-steel vacuum receiver, counter-weighted flapper assembly and a hinged lid with a latch, giving easy access to the filter. All models, except the EL1, include filter blow-back.
The first Economizer product, the EconoGrind granulators, covers the full range of size-reduction applications, from the small, low-speed ESL series through big, higher-output ES machines.
ACS is making the machines at its plant in South Attleboro, Mass.
In other news, ACS has signed an exclusive agreement to distribute Innovative Water Technology Inc.'s equipment to treat mold cooling and processing water.
IWT of Comstock Park, Mich., makes chemical-free TowerKlean and ChillerKlean equipment that controls algae and bacteria, stops the formation of scale and fights corrosion.
