MODELS – Movacolor Inline Dosing and Blending Systems
Movacolor - The Balance
The Balance is a single-component gravimetric dosing system in its simplest form. This system is super easy to operate — just enter the shot weight (or extrusion rate) and percent addition, then press START. The system will automatically adjust its output without any further interaction, leaving your machine operators to perform other important tasks. A single Balance can be combined with other Movacolor gravimetric dosing devices (including other Balances) in a multi-component configuration that is a cost-effective, accurate and user-friendly solution for all of your dosing needs.
Movacolor - Twin
The MC-Twin is a special-purpose gravimetric dosing system, designed specifically for dosing both color concentrate masterbatch and regrinds. This system will work for both injection molding and extrusion applications. With this unique approach, the exact color level is maintained by automatic adjustment of the color dosing rate inversely proportional to the amount of regrinds that are added to the system.
Movacolor - Powder
The MC-Powder is a gravimetric dosing device for sticky and non free-flowing powders. The MC-Powder system is based on the highly accurate and successful MC-Balance and uses many of the same components. This system adds a special hopper with an agitator and twin rotating open spirals to keep sticky powders from bridging. Dosing rates are from 100 grams to 40 kg/hour.
MC-Weight and MC-Continuous Blender
Inline gravimetric blending systems – In its simplest form, the MC-Weight is used for monitoring the real-time usage rate for extrusion systems. The “Weight Hopper” is available in three versions, and can monitor extrusion rates up to 1,000 kg/hour (2,220 lbs/hour). This device also forms the heart of a continuous blender system. The extrusion rate of main material as it flows through the MC-Weight is communicated to as many as 14 additional systems … this includes the MC-Balance, MC-High Output, MC-Liquid and MC-Powder gravimetric dosing systems. Each dosing system is automatically adjusted as the flow of main material changes through the MC-Weight.
Movacolor - Liquid
Inline gravimetric liquid dosing. The MC-Liquid is also based on the same basic design as the MC-Balance and can be used for both extrusion and injection molding applications. Various pump types are available to meet the needs of the application, including peristaltic pumps and positive displacement pump mechanisms.
Movacolor - Volumetric
Movacolor offers various volumetric dosing options for injection molding and extrusion applications. These systems utilize the same basic mechanical components as their gravimetric systems … hoppers, dosing devices, stepper motors, etc. Output is controlled by adjusting the speed of the dosing device and still offers good accuracy and consistency, but at a lower price point.
