Colortronic offering heating, cooling units
Colortronic Inc., a maker of blenders, feeders and granulators in Runnemede, N.J., is expanding its product line to include process heating and cooling equipment.
The new Colortronic equipment includes water and oil temperature-control units, portable and central chillers, cooling towers, pump tanks and water treatment and filtration systems.
``Customers are looking more and more for a single partner for all their auxiliaries,'' said Rob Edwards, vice president of sales for Colortronic North America.
The temperature-control units are sold under the CWT and COT models.
The chiller products include BFC Series blown film coolers, C Series central chillers, CPC Series portable chillers, outdoor chillers and supplemental chilling systems. The AWX Series Winter Kooler is a supplemental chilling system designed to allow process cooling water to bypass a chiller whenever ambient air temperatures are low enough to provide enough cooling without mechanical refrigeration.
Colortronic cooling towers come in three different models, each with induced-draft counter-flow towers. The FG Series has a noncorrosive shell made of polyester-reinforced composites. M Series metal towers have galvanized components and a PVC fill. The third brand is the NC Series tower.
Colortronic's T/C Series pump tanks are custom made.
The TWMV280 Tower Water Management System controls scale, corrosion and microbiological fouling in open and closed recirculating cooling water networks, the firm said.
Colortronic is a unit of auxiliary equipment maker ACS Group of Wood Dale, Ill.
The line extension applies only to the Colortronic brand in North America.

SAS offers D-shaped DX robotic platform
End-of-arm tooling maker SAS Automation Ltd. developed the DX robotic gripper platform to handle heavy, bulky parts.
The frame profile platform is D-shaped. It has six to eight sides for mounting the mating robotic components, two more than the traditional square or rectangular shapes.
Also, two sides are set at opposite, 45-degree angles, allowing for greater flexibility in the angle of the mountings.
The DX profile also allows for back-to-back mounting of the D-shaped profile, to create a round, double-D setup.
From the main boom mounted to the robotic arm, the flats of the profile can be rotated to allow for cross-frame mounting configurations.
In the boom setup, eight mounting sides are possible, with four on 45-degree angles.
All sides have X nut channels that accept the full line of SAS gripper components.
SAS is headquartered in Xenia, Ohio.
