Motan will show the MINICOLOR G PET dosing/mixing unit at this year's drinktec. The equipment is capable of gravimetrically adding non-temperature resistant masterbatches and additives in granular form to hot PET. Thereby, the water-cooled dosing screw prevents a heat transfer of hot PET to the additive and thus premature melting.
The dosing head for the additive sits on a robust but extremely precise load cell and operates using loss-in-weight metering technology which assures permanent weighing of the material. The speed of the dosing screw is continuously monitored and automatically adjusted to the dosing throughput resulting in maximum repeatability.
Through the sophisticated anti-vibration management of the control, external vibrations cannot influence the quantity to be dosed.
Calibration of the MINICOLOR G PET is carried out automatically, unlike the manual calibration necessary with volumetric units. The complete dosing process can be documented and archived ensuring easy traceability.
User friendly operation via touch screen panel with colour graphic display, recipe management and standard Ethernet interface complete the technically superior design of the unit.
In addition, Motan has the appropriate hopper loader specially designed for feeding flakes or regrind.
