In-line mixers for injection molding or extrusion

For the majority of PET injection molding or extrusion processes the general in-line dosing principle works and mixing is unnecessary. When the plasticizing screw of the extruder or injection molding machine has a limited homogenization capability, however, it is advantageous to use an in-line mixer. Movacolor has developed a mixer that performs a perfect job in homogenization and coating of low melting colors or additives. Your Movacolor specialist will advise you whether an in-line doser or a mixer will be the best solution for your type of plastic production process.

Motorized mixers

Movacolor has developed a range of motorized mixers for use in the most demanding applications for both injection molding and extrusion applications. The mixers, including all inner parts, are made of robust stainless steel. The compact horizontal mixer is available as single mixer or combined water-cooled neckpiece mixer.

Mixers for PET

Especially for PET applications Movacolor has developed the mixer with integrated water cooled flanges. There are two types available - a 50 mm outlet for small PET processors and a 90 mm outlet for large PET processing machines. Both types can be ordered with optional double water cooled flanges for mounting two Movacolor dosing stations.

Easy cleaning of mixers

The mixers are designed for ease of use and are easy to clean. Simply remove the 3 phase-motor with the counter rotating mixer blades and the job is done.

Automatic hopper loaders for masterbatch, regrind and powder

ME hopper loader for masterbatch and regrind

With the automatic hopper loader for masterbatch and regrind, the hopper will automatically be filled. This is an advantage because the gravimetric or volumetric dosing unit can never run out of masterbatch and/or regrind. The ME automatic filling system blows the material from the bag, drum or container into the hopper of the dosing system. The hopper lid of the housing has a simple and easy-to-clean dust filter to keep any dust particles in the hopper. The ME hopper loader is controlled by the electronics of the dosing unit.

MV hopper loader for granules and free flowing powder

The MV automatic hopper loader for free flowing powder and granules uses a three stage vacuum generator which is driven by compressed air to create a vacuum that brings material into a chamber. Once the chamber is filled with material the cone will open and the material will be discharged into the hopper. The system is equipped with a superior filter to ensure that the finest particles (> 5 micron) stay in the system and aren’t released into the atmosphere. This makes the MV hopper loader the most practical and user-friendly system for both powders and granules.

In-line dosage system for injection molding and extrusi

The MC18 Synchronic volumetric in-line dosing unit is suitable for injection molding and extrusion. The dosing system adds precise percentages of masterbatch, powder and regrind at the throat of an injection molding machine or extruder. This precise dosing is accomplished by the combination of well thought out controls, a dosing cylinder and a stepper motor. This golden combination makes the MC18 dosage unit well up to the job of coloring PET preforms, caps and closures, toys, household, automotive, packaging , medical, profiles, pipes, cables, sheets, film and other applications in the plastics processing industry.

Gravimetric dosing system MCBalance

Gravimetric in-line dosing system MCBalance offers plastic producing companies maximum control, maximum efficiency and maximum savings. Through continuous loss-in-weight measuring, one is ensured of the best results for the best price. The MCBalance dosing system continuously calibrates the dosages and adjusts automatically. The MCLan enables the producer to monitor all MCBalance dosing systems from one computer. Plastic processors worldwide choose this gravimetric dosing unit for stability in coloring with masterbatch, powder or regrind. This gravimetric unit can easily be adjusted to a multi-component system, so that you can dose up to six additives at the same time.

Gravimetric dosing system product line

MCBalance – Single component gravimetric loss in weight feeder. This unit can be upgraded up to 6 units who form a gravimetric multi component dosing system. This system allows you to dose up to 6 additives at the same time all based on loss in weight. The output varies from 0,07 to 180 kg/h measured with normal granular masterbatch 0.8 kg/dm3.

MCMulti-component - Dosing 6 different type of additives at the same time.

MCHigh Output – The gravimetric high output of this unit varies from 50 to 1000 kg/h. This dosing system allows you to control even high outputs and reduce the waste of colorants.

MCTwin – Dosing regrind and masterbatch at the same time.The MCTwin allows to dose rejects and sprouts as regrind together with the masterbatch. The units adjust automatically in order to produce end products without color variation.

MCLiquid – Gravimetric dosing technology for liquid colorants. It automatically compensates variations in viscosity or process changes. Also ideal for dosing aggressive fluids. It is self-priming and dry-running and handles 0,01-13 ml/sec, measured using water (22⁰C) with Norprene and Tygon tubing.

MCWeight – Measuring the actual speed capacity of the extruder. Available in a version for masterbatch, regrind and a version for pourable powder. The MCWeight can be combined with one or more MCBalances.
