The new Mini DAC compressed air loader from Dri-Air Industries, East Windsor, Connecticut, is designed for feeding mini injection molding machines or small extruders, as well as for other applications involving tight space constraints, with throughputs up to 20 pounds per hour.
Powered by shop air, the Mini DAC loader transfers material from Dri-Air portable dryer systems to small presses or extruders. It also can load from Gaylords or bags to drying hoppers or directly to the press feed throat. Its low storage capacity minimizes moisture pickup for dried resins, the company says.
The Mini DAC Loader is sold complete with controls, material wand, hoses, air transvector and adapter. The slip-on mounting base allows easy removal of the loader without tools for cleaning, Dri-Air says.
Founded in 1974, Dri-Air Industries is a leader in desiccant dryer technology and an industry leading supplier of press-side and central resin drying, blending and conveying systems.
