Plastiloader

The Plasticolor Hopper Loader automatically transfers material from a container into hopper of a Plasticolor feeder,
eliminating the manual labor associated with keeping the hopper full of material to be fed.
The Plasticolor Loader is available installed on new Plasticolor Feeders, or as a kit for installation on existing
Plasticolor Feeders or hoppers of other manufacturers.How it works: The material transfer wand uses compressed
air to generate a powerful vacuum that lifts material from a bulk container and transfers it to feeder hopper through a
material transfer hose. The hopper-mounted loader uses a “cyclone” effect to separate the transferred material
from the air stream, and deposit the material into the hopper. An automotive type air filter on the loader stops air-born
dust from entering the plant. High/low level sensor in the hopper tell the Controller when to load material … starting the feeder
when material reaches the low level sensor, and stopping the loader when the hopper is full.A combination of features that
make the Plasticolor Hopper Loader unique  The high efficiency material transfer wand works well at air supply pressures as low as
40 psi.The high/low level sensors in the hopper provide a positive control of the material loading cycle … always maintaining a safe
level of material in the hopper. This dual level sensor approach eliminates the need for additional timers, or complex calibration
procedures associated with a “single sensor” loader control approach. Unique “Clamp Ring” mounting of the hopper mounted
loader allows the material inlet tube to be rotated 360, for desired inlet direction. Low profile design only adds 5 1/2″ to the hopper
height, for those “tight fit” applications. Universal mounting design can be used on almost any hopper.

Combined Hopper Loader control and Alarm Unit

Alarm Unit

The Alarm Unit provides an audible and visual alarm that can be used for low level Hopper Alarm or
on any equipment the has a closing relay output.The Alarm unit can also be combined with
the Plastiloader control unit.

Quick Drain

The Quick drain will allow you to drain the Plasticolor hopper with minimal material loss and it facilitates
fast material and screw changes. The Quick drain tube has a O.D of 2.5” so it can easily be extended
using standard flexible tubing.The Quick drain slide gate assembly fits all Plasticolor 2000 and 3000.

Water Cooled

The Water cooled sleeve extends through the material stream and drops the additive in the center
of the main material. The mixing takes place directly in the center of the neckpiece. By dropping the additive in
the center of the neckpiece, our unit prevents the additive from adhering to the sides of the neckpiece.
This configuration simplifies clean out and additive changes.
