Conair Group's patent-pending R-PRO, dense-phase, vacuum conveying system will make its first appearance at a European trade show at K 2016 (Hall 10, stand J59).
The R-PRO minimizes pallet fracturing, angel hair and equipment wear caused by conventional dilute-phase conveying. Pellets move at slow speeds in dense slugs of material. Material speeds can range from as slow as 230 feet per minute up to 1,200 feet per minute.
The R-PRO results in a slower flow of material that causes less resin damage without limiting throughput.
Other Conair innovations at K will be a new FLX-128 Plus conveying control, which now can be set up to operate the R-PRO, a new Mobile Drying/Conveying (MDC) system with standard color touchscreen control interface, and several examples of Conair's MedLine range of auxiliary equipment for clean rooms.
Conair is based in Cranberry Township, Pa.
