ACS Group of Wood Dale, Ill., announced several products:
* The Sterling-brand SSC-WT Pinnacle chiller, available in capacities from 30-100 tons, in both air-cooled and water-cooled versions. The chiller features scroll compressors, brazed-plate evaporators and a stainless-steel reservoir tank.
Scroll compressors use 50 percent fewer parts than reciprocating compressors, according to Sterling. That means efficient operation, reliability and reduced noise.
* ACS' new VacTrac series 24/128 controller will be on display at NPE 2006. Features include improved graphics and control of up to 24 vacuum conveying pumps, 128 loading stations and 128 purge valves. The controller uses Allen-Bradley's DeviceNet distributed input/output network and a CompactLogix touch-screen controller.
* Colortronic North America Inc. released its CSR series of vacuum receivers, featuring a modular, stainless-steel design. They can be reconfigured for future production requirements, sized for throughput from just a few pounds to thousands of pounds an hour.
Most models offer a unique discharge throat and counter-weighted flapper, integral level switch, and extra mounting holds in the flange for 12 different mounting orientations.
* Colortronic's M-1000 series granulator includes integrated rotating end discs for low-heat granulation and reduced wear from friction. Other features of the M-1000: easy cleaning and maintenance thanks to a pivoting hopper, a drop-down removable screen cradle and machined, bolted cutting chamber.
