Quick acting latches
The PLASTICOLOR dosing units can be cleaned very easily thanks to the Quick acting latches. Changing the screws is quick and easy. The pressure bolts ensure a good seal and prevent back pressure on the motor and gears.
Round material inlet
The combination of round stainless steel hoppers, round material inlet and round quick discharge ensures a material flow/cleaning with almost no residue.
Round sealing disc
The design of the round sealing disc ensures a perfect flow of material when dosing and also when discharging.
Special seal for processing powder
A special seal is available for processing powder.
Quick discharge with manual slide
Very easy discharge of the PLASTICOLOR dosing units and hoppers thanks to the quick discharge. This allows an quick and troublefree change of colour and change of screw/cylinder assembly.
Quick discharge pneumatic
The pneumatic quick discharge can be remotely operated, for example for PLASTICOLOR dosing units that are mounted on a platform/gantry or in a high position.
Neckpiece slides secure the units against the neckpiece and make it possible to take samples and conduct volume tests. The units can be filled and emptied during production.
Neckpiece Slide - pneumatic
The pneumatic neckpiece slide facilitates remote opening and closing and thus taking samples remotely.
Quick discharge and neckpiece slide connecting a hose
Using a hose for quick discharge or connecting a hose for taking samples is a practical option for all PLASTICOLOR dosing units that are mounted in a high or inaccessible position. The material can be discharged into a container on the floor.
Test opening in the middle of the housing
Tests for volume control can be done during production via the test slide.
Automatic screw identification
The combination of a PPM Control, a coded screw coupling and a sensor in the pressure bolt allows a fully automatic screw identification of the screw mounted in the dosing unit.
A hopper slide is being used when changing the screw/cylinder without emptying the hopper. For example when a completely different output with the same material (after changing screw/cylinder) is to be done.
Sensors are used for level control in the hopper and the neckpiece. When processing small amounts of additive or changing materials very frequently, it is helpful to install an adapter for a sensor over the dosing screw.
High capacity insert
High capacity inserts for non-pressurised dosing into the main material stream flowing through the neckpiece.
Hopper adapter for the mounting of a main material hopper on top of the neckpiece. With the hopper adapter all hoppers out of the PLASTICOLOR product range will fit, without any steps or restrictions.
Circular stainless steel hopper
Circular stainless steel hoppers with a round filling area and round discharge ensure an almost residue-free discharge via the quick discharge.
