NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY THURSDAY NPE 2018 : THE PLASTICS SHOW SHOW DAILY Working for a better future Customized recycling technology for the plastics converting industry. It will not only satisfy, but also inspire. MEMBER OF NEXT GENERATION GROUP S:GRAN SHREDDER-FEEDER-EXTRUDER COMBINATION NPE Orlando May 7–11, 2018 West Hall E, booth W7263 Vacuum Drying Line Extended Maguire Products Inc. | Booth W5747 Maguire Products Inc., is introducing its VBD600 vacuum drying system (Booth W5747). With 600 pounds (275 kg) per hour of drying capacity, the model builds out the VBD lineup, joining the VBD 150, VBD 300 and VBD 1000. Maguire's vacuum drying systems now have throughput capabiliঞes ranging from 30 to 1,000 lb/hr. Maguire is also showcasing an ener- gy-monitoring capability that is available with all VBD models at NPE2018. The VBD-600 on exhibit includes a new touch-screen con- troller that monitors energy consumpঞon, enabling processors to track consumpঞon over ঞme. Energy efficiency is a key feature for the VBD line, according to Maguire, which points out that drying can account for as much as 15% of the total process energy cost for a molding operaঞon. In comparison with desic- cant dryers, Maguire says its VBD vacuum dryers consume up to 80% less energy, while drying resin in one-sixth the ঞme. In the VBD, gravity moves material through three verঞcally arranged drying stages—heaঞng hopper, vacuum vessel, ma- terial retenঞon hopper—with material dis- charge to each stage controlled by high- speed slide-gate valves boasঞng accuracy of ± 4 grams. The vacuum vessel and retenঞon hopper are mounted on load cells that moni- tor the weight of material at these stages, controlling material consumpঞon and docu- menঞng process condiঞons for cerঞficaঞon to customers. For hygroscopic materials, a membrane purge opঞon is available. Like all Maguire equipment, the new VBD-600 dryer comes with a five-year warranty. | (610) 459-4300 All-Electric Wheel & Recip-Screw Blow Molders Wilmington Machinery | Booth W1823 Patent-Pending Low-Smoke Zero- Halogen Wire & Cable Compounds SACO AEI Polymers | Booth S11119 SACO AEI Polymers exhibits its core wire and cable compound technologies at NPE2018, as well as several new patent pending low-smoke zero-halogen technologies.
