The MCWeight is specially designed to measure the actual feed capacity of an extruder. It has an integrated weighing module to accurately measure throughput and an integrated knife valve to control the filling.
Combined with one or more Movacolor units, the MCWeight tracks even the smallest capacity variation of the extruder. It adjusts the additive dosing from the dosing units accordingly.
Dried material with a temperature up to 180°C can be handled with the MCWeight.
This throughput measurement system enables you to get the best out of your extrusion line. It gives you real time insight into your actual line capacity and tracks the consumption of your materials. In combination with our MCLine Control it can even control your complete extrusion line including upstream and downstream equipment.
The MCWeight P is designed for measuring pourable powders like PVC dry blend. The MCWeight P can also be applied for granular materials or pourable regrinds that contain dust. The construction of the pneumatic knife gate is dust tight. The manchets are dust tight and there are additional dust filters to handle powder.
The MCWeight P, like the MCWeight, is designed to measure the actual feed capacity of the extruder, save expensive additives and ensure high quality end product in extrusion production.
The MCWeight P measures the throughput of the main material and provides the exact throughput/output of your extruder within seconds of start up. Combined with up to to six MCBalance dosing systems, the MCWeight tracks the smallest capacity variation of the extruder. The additive dosing from the MCBalance(s) adjusts accordingly. The MCWeight P for powder comes in 500 kg/h and 1000 kg/h versions.
The MCContinuous Blender covers most of the available materials like granulates, regrinds, powders and liquids. All this in one system, with one standard controller and integrated loader control.
All the benefits of a continuous blender are suddenly within your reach. Our experience with in-line gravimetric dosing helps you to achieve the required accuracy for all your components, directly on the extruder.
Advanced blending systems are often seen as complete plant engineered solutions. Movacolor has developed a unique modular system that allows you to put together a full gravimetric continuous blending system. Up to 15 components can be controlled from one controller. These systems can be installed on one extruder or on multiple co-extruders, creating a control platform for multiple continuous blenders in one system.
The system grows with your future needs. New components can easily be integrated without changes to the controller.
The MCHybrid 200* is a unique dosing concept that combines two technologies into one system: batch blending and in-line dosing.
The main materials or regrinds are mixed in an extreme compact gravimetric batch blender. Because the system only blends the main materials, the blending speed is high and therefore the batch blender remains small.
The additives are dosed gravimetrically in-line, directly on the throat of the injection molding machine or extruder.
By using these two blending and dosing technologies in one machine, you are able to control the main materials in any given ratio and at the same time dose additives at low percentages with unequalled accuracy.
The MCHybrid 200 is available for capacities up to 1,000 kg/h with 2-8 blending components and up to maximum 14 in-line dosing components.
If requested, the blender itself can also be used without the in-line dosing units. In that case the capacity and the accuracy will reduce compared to the MCHybrid concept.
