Consolidated Resin Drying Hopper Systems

Conair ResinWorks™ systems offer a new level of manufacturing efficiency. By consolidating resin handling and pre-conditioning into a central area, material changes can take place quickly, cleanly, and safely away from the processing machine. Simplified resin dehumidification is the heart of the ResinWorks system, where multiple hoppers are supplied on a common, pre-plumbed, pre-wired sled, and connected to a dehumidifying dryer to provide superior drying and maximum productivity. Individual sleds can be connected to form an efficient, centralized resin drying area supplying large numbers of processing machines with a wide array of dried resins.

Quick clean hoppers

Located within easy operator reach, each hopper includes the industry’s largest clean-out doors, a removable cone, and smooth all-stainless steel construction.

Superior mass flow

Design assures that all material is evenly exposed to dry air and heat. Funnel flow and material hang-up points are eliminated for superior drying.

Long life tube heaters

Highly accurate, compact ‘tube’ heaters are located at the inlet of each hopper for superior temperature control and minimal energy loss.

Systems that are conceived, configured and designed to make you more competitive, efficient, productive and profitable.

  • Provides full flexibility - any material to any machine at any time.
  • Ten minute material changes - pre-dried, pre-blended material always ready.
  • Clean, neat processing - removes drying and blending equipment from the machine area.
  • Convey small batchs - from dryer or blender to machine.
  • Conveying lines purged - after every cycle
  • Minimizes labor, energy, material and inventory costs

Supply and return air manifolds
Integrated supply and return air manifolds

Integrated supply and return air manifolds replace the externally mounted bulky manifolds for a simplified installation of material conveying lines to each hopper.

Mass flow, stainless steel drying hopper
Mass flow, stainless steel, drying hopper

The Conair ResinWorks mass flow, stainless steel, drying hopper is equipped with an oversized door for quick, easy clean out and thorough material changes. A full length sight glass with level indication lets you see your material level at a glance.

MedLine® ResinWorks electrical access points
Less floor space needed

We’ve eliminated the need for additional clearance behind the sled by relocating all electrical access points to the front of the sled. Now you can save valuable floor space and reduce troublesome equipment location problems.

ResinWorks System air hose attachment
Airflow balancing valve

The new, fully-automatic airflow balancing valve eliminates the need for tedious individual air flow adjustments at each hopper.

MedLine® ResinWorks System purge valve
Adjustable Purge Valve

This valve controls material flow from material source to destination. This easy to clean and install valve has a discharge that rotates 360 degrees to allow complete purge of material lines.

MedLine® ResinWorks System slide gate
Slide Gate

Use the Slide Gate to prevent material leakage when no purge valve or distribution box is specified on the hopper.

MedLine® ResinWorks System multiple sled connection kit
Multiple Sled Connection Kit

This option allows the connection between multiple sleds for the integral supply, return and conveying manifolds. For each junction between sleds, a kit is required.

MedLine® ResinWorks System hopper discharge drain port
Hopper Discharge Drain Port

Facilitates hopper draining and clean out

Temperature Setback RTD

Automatically reduces the drying temperature to a lower standby mode when the machine throughput is reduced or stopped.

Communications

Options include: Modbus and DeviceNet.
