Dry air dryer LUXOR EM A

Both the LUXOR E A and LUXOR EM A dryers with optional ETA plus® energy saving technology are specifically designed to supply consistently low dew-point air to one drying bin, while reducing energy consumption.

The LUXOR E A dryer is designed for use with existing conveying systems or hopper loaders.

Whereas the LUXOR EM A offers a machine dedicated solution with integrated dry air conveying for up to two processing machines and the drying bin.

The demand for excellent mixing quality and consistently accurate dosing is a must when combining additives to the virgin material at the processing machine.

The volumetric MINICOLOR V dosing and mixing units meet and exceed these requirements. Mounted at the feed throat of the plastics processing machine, the units require very little space.

Depending on need and requirement, screw or disc dosing modules can be installed at the mixing neck.

SPECTROPLUS is a gravimetric & volumetric synchronous dosing & mixing unit for diverse materials – from granules, regrind or powders to liquids and flakes.

Due to the modular design of the SPECTROPLUS with only one frame size and up to 8 dosing module positions, it is one of the most flexible overall systems in the motan product world. In addition to the gravimetric and volumetric version, the SPECTROPLUS can also be combined (gravimetric and volumetric dosing modules in combination).

News & Innovations

METROFLOW - Gravimetric conveying made easy

With the gravimetric hopper loader METROFLOW, plastic processors can monitor their material flow cost-effectively and efficiently. Thanks to the very precise weighing technology, the hopper loaders are particularly suitable for monitoring material consumption in real time, making them predestined for use in an Industry 4.0 environment.

The METROFLOW weighs every single conveying cycle and so enables an accurate recording of the actual throughput at the hopper loader. In particular, in the processing of recyclate this can be a great advantage, since here, the bulk density of the material can fluctuate frequently. In addition to the throughput mode of the operation panel, METROFLOW units can also deliver to a defined, pre-determined target weight. In this way, users optimise conveying times and keep the desired material quantities constant. The units are available with either 6 or 10 liters hopper loader volumes.

Thanks to the precision load cell, the weighing accuracy is <1%, any disturbances are filtered out using a software. The discharge flap is made of stainless steel and thus on the one hand abrasion resistant, on the other hand suitable for requirements in medical or food packaging applications. The optional hinged frame, which is available when mounting the METROFLOW on a mezzanine or large material bin, allows easy cleaning of the discharge flap module.

METROCONNECT U/C – motan-colortronic’s new coupling system Coded material assignment with RFID-technology

With the new METROCONNECT U/C coupling system, motan-colortronic is introducing a high quality, manually operated coupling station for pneumatic conveying systems, optionally as either an uncoded version (METROCONNECT U), or as a coded version (METROCONNECT C) with the maintenance free RFIDtechnology. The main benefit: The uncoded version can be retro-fitted to a coded version at any time. Additionally, older coupling systems can be extended with METROCONNECT C independent of manufacturer. Not only do coded coupling stations prevent coupling errors, they are often necessary if material tracking, validation, or certification is required. In machine dedicated conveying systems, every single processing machine is assigned a conveying material feedline. The connection of the pipe to the different material sources occurs via a coupling station, which enables simple and flexible material changes.
