MPCB Series Multi-Pass Tanks

MPCB series cooling tank

Conserve Space with Multi-pass Flood Cooling

Conair’s MPCB Series multi-pass tanks are designed for applications where space is tight and a combination puller/cooling tank is needed. The MPCB tank utilizes servo driven multi-pass sheaves within the cooling tank to circulate product multiple times within a limited space.

Multi-pass tanks, a Conair invention, are designed to minimize floor space and water consumption by utilizing a shorter length of tank for multiple passes of product. Product can pass through the three compartments of the MPCB tank up to five times, thus giving 120 feet {36 m} of flood cooling with only a 27-foot long {8 m} footprint (MPCB-24 model).

Space-saving technology

Conair designed multi-pass tank technology to help alleviate a common pain point – space, and long extrusion line lengths. As an added benefit, the multi-pass tanks use less water, and allow for easy supervision of the product cooling all within one tank, close to the extruder if adjustments to the process are required.

Simplified cleanout

The stainless steel tank interior is designed to ease daily cleanout by minimizing sharp corners and exposed threads where bacteria, pyrogens and other particulate matter can accumulate. The telescoping drip tray is one-piece to aid in wipe-down by eliminating open seams. Guide rollers inside the vacuum tank are fixed to free-standing mounts to allow removal for cleaning

Integrated components save cost

The MPCB tank integrates a single-piece drip tray, primary puller, multi-pass cooling, and air wipe chamber into a single package, eliminating added cost and space requirements for stand-alone components.
