Parkinson Technologies Inc. will be exhibiting at the upcoming K-Show 2013 in Dusseldorf, Germany (October 16-23, Stand 3D54), promoting its lines of melt filtration, converting, winding, and plastics orientation processing machinery for the plastics industry. As the world’s premier trade fair for plastics and rubber, the K-Show is held once every three years. It is the leading industry showcase for all major market innovations.
Parkinson Technologies is scheduled to exhibit their new KCH Continuous Hybrid Screen Changer, in addition to other innovations across their product lines. The KCH was unveiled at last year’s NPE show in Orlando, FL with positive response to the high level of efficiency and performance over a broad range of polymers. This year, Parkinson Technologies will showcase an enhanced version of the KCH offering even more capability with a new safety feature of an automatic screen shear system.
“Working closely with our customers, we implemented further advancements to our already innovative design,” said John Whaley, Business Manager Key Filters Products. “By making novel modifications to the shape of the flow passage we were able to double the filtration area, resulting in a substantial capacity increase. This provides a more even distribution of polymer flow and promotes a much more efficient use of the filter media.”
“We also added an automatic screen shear system to offer customers an increased level of automation and safety,” said Whaley. “Once the operator programs the desired cut-off length, which can be as short as 2.5 inches (63.5mm), then he or she can simply allow the machine to handle cutting the filter waste. This eliminates manually cutting the screen with a saw while the machine is running, increasing operator safety.”
Parkinson Technologies encourages prospective buyers to visit their stand at the K-Show 2013 to see the Key Filter KCH Continuous Hybrid Screen Changer and other product innovations.
