FIVE DECADES OF EXPERIENCE GOES INTO EACH VECTRA LOADER AND SYSTEM Our experience in the design, manufacturing and installation of conveying systems and hopper loaders for plastics processors is your assurance that you will be selecting the most reliable method to save time and material, while reducing costs.

We know what it takes to automatically move pellets, powders, regrinds and granulars from bulk railcars or shipping containers to storage silos and bins, then into processing hoppers.

We are committed to new technologies, we keep our designs simple and our equipment competitively priced; new ideas are not practical if processors can not afford to add them to their processing lines.

A major advantage of a Hamilton loader or loading system is the option to customize controls and control components to meet specific processor requirements. Our engineering and electronics departments are dedicated to providing exactly what our customers want, at a competitive price.

Integral Vacuum Loaders

The Vectra series of self-powered, integral motor loaders, are ideal for the conveying of pellets and regrinds over shorter distances. Conveying ability ranges from a few hundred pounds to over 2,000 pounds per hour. Ratio models include two inlet ports with controls for ratio loading.

Vectra integral motor loaders include solid state controls with an on/off switch and external load time adjustment. A no Material alarm is available on all integral models, which will alarm if no material is being conveyed. All models include automatic filter cleaning.

These loaders are shipped ready to use, complete with flexible conveying hose, clamps and vertical feed tube. Horizontal feed tubes for bin unloading are available as an option.

Brushless motors are also available as an option, Processors who wish to eliminate the routine maintenance costs associated with brush monitoring and replacement on single-phase vacuum motors can now opt for maintenance-free brushless motors.

Centralized Vacuum Loaders

Feature for feature, Vectra loaders are engineered to give you more than any other vacuum material receiver. The heavy-duty carbon steel body makes Vectra loaders resistant to the toughest industrial applications.

Vectra loaders are used in various configurations; as a single unit with a dedicated vacuum pump, or in a system consisting of multiple units with a centralized vacuum pump. In the centralized version, a single vacuum line connects multiple receivers to a common pump. This pump powers all receivers, one at a time in a demand sequence operated by a central vacuum controller. Vectra loaders are modular. They can be easily expanded, retrofitted, or enhanced to meet needs of the dynamic industrial environment.

Vectra loaders are designed to offer features and quality that are superior to any other vacuum receiver on the market.

Optional Features

  • External, dual material ratio valve
  • External Common material valve
  • “Receiver full” proximity sensor
  • Flapper discharge
  • Wiring junction box
  • Closed loop
  • “T” vacuum valve
  • High temperature package
  • Abrasive material package
  • Remotely mounted demand proximity sensor
  • Various voltage options: 24Vac, 24Vdc and 240Vac

Compressed-Air Venturi Loader

The compact SVL Venturi Loader makes it easy to provide trouble- free loading wherever you need it. Using The compact SVL Venturi Loader makes it easy to provide trouble- free loading wherever you need it. Using compressed, air the SVL’s highly efficient venturi draws material from drums, bins or gaylords. From there, the material is conveyed by compressed air Venturi to the stainless steel receiving hopper that can be mounted to virtually any vessel or machine throat. Using a unique, low maintenance filter assembly, material is separated from the conveying air stream and deposited directly into a bin or machine throat. The wide-open Tube Loader body keeps material flowing without bridging and without a discharge valve common to other types of loaders

Just-In-Time Glass Tube Loader

Just in Time material loader, plastics, vacuum loader, material loader

Obtain exceptional visibility of material and minimum material residence time with the Vectra series of glass tube loaders. They are mounted directly on the throat of the process machine to replace the material hopper. An adjustable level proximity sensor provides material level control, By minimizing your transfer of material to only two or three shots, which ensures that the material does not have time to regain moisture.

The Vectra series of glass tube loaders are constructed of carbon steel and glass tube to resist wear from abrasive materials.
