Speed-controlled Conveying Protects Resin, Eliminates Angel Hair
Conair’s patent-pending Wave Conveying™ is distinctly different than conventional conveying. While the 5000 plus feet-per-minute speed of dilute phase conveying has been the preferred method of material conveying for decades, it was never ideal for some sensitive resins.
Conair’s new Wave Conveying System uses controlled-speed conveying (300 – 2800 feet-per-minute) to move these more sensitive materials that often cause problems like dust, angel hair, or wear to conveying systems when conveyed at high speeds.
Testing has shown that Wave Conveying can accommodate a variety of throughput needs. As a result of the speed control used, common conveying issues with sensitive materials are eliminated.
Controlled resin flow
Fast moving, uncontrolled streams of pellets are replaced with highly-controlled, slow moving waves for greater pellet integrity.
Reduce dust, maintenance, angel hair, static and tubing wear
Slow movement means less pellet degradation, less dust creation, and less filter maintenance. Angel hair streamers do not form. Tubing, elbows, and even hose last much longer. Static charges in the conveying lines are significantly reduced.
Use only the power you need
Most conveying pumps are either on, running at 100% capacity, or off. The pump used in the Wave Conveying System is highly energy-efficient, thanks to the VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) which allows the pump to operate using only the amount of power necessary to achieve the desired material speed. In addition to energy savings, the pump life will be extended by only running at the capacity necessary.
