Motan's New Swift sCOMPACT 80/150/250

Compact Dryer with Integrated Conveying - Swift simple units, combined with state-of-the-art control technology.

The new Swift product family comprises the most cost-efficient models of the Motan product portfolio. Swift products are quick and easy to operate. Whether for standardized injection molding, blow molding, or extrusion applications – they are always the right choice. The Swift product family not only represents value for money, quick delivery and the usual Motan quality, but also state-of-the-art control technology.

The sCOMPACT S and sCOMPACT A dryers are designed for sCOMPACT 80/150/250 flexible material processing in the production line and are suitable for use with a processing machine. They offer a system-specific solution with integrated conveying and a drying bin. The dryers are available in three versions and are each equipped with one drying bin of the size 80, 150 or 250 liters and a hopper loader with a capacity of 4 liters. The sCOMPACT A dryer is provided with advanced functions such as the dew point control and the dry air conveying function with purging. The sCOMPACT 250 dryer can optionally supply two processing machines.

The sCOMPACT dryers are developed especially in order to guarantee a stable drying process.  The two desiccant cartridges generate a continuous dry air flow with low dew point and are perfectly suitable for production facilities with high air temperatures and high ambient humidity.


Simple and easy to operate with state-of-the-art control technology.  Simplest handling by a modern microprocessor control. Thanks to a modern 7" touch screen color display, all conveying and drying functions can be shown and monitored in a user-friendly way. 16 user languages can easily be selected. 128 MB RAM, 128 MB Flash. Dew point control.
The integrated conveying function in the sCOMPACT saves you space and money as no separate conveying system is needed. It can control up to one drying bin hopper loader and one machine loader, as well as the blower and filter.
All drying models are equipped with especially large cleaning doors with an inspection window and can be opened with the help of a quick-release lock. The doors are adapted to the shape of the drying bin which optimizes the material flow and makes cleaning easier. A hinged lid facilitates the access from above.
A three-phase side channel blower is used for conveying. They are maintenance-free and have a long service life. Thanks to the low-noise, simple and compact design, the blowers can be installed directly in the dry air generator. IE3 motors for all  blowers with 0,85KW and larger.

Fully insulated drying bin - The entire drying bin including material discharge is completely heat-insulated. This ensures stable conditions in the bin and saves energy.

Each dryer is equipped with two fully insulated, stationary desiccant beds. On the one hand, this saves the user energy in the drying process and ensures constant drying air quality thanks to the large molecular sieve cartridges. On the other hand, the dryers are very reliable due to the long drying cycles, infrequent regeneration, and no moving parts.

XP5 DeDuster by Pelletron

Pelletron DeDuster

Pelletron DeDuster was developed as a result of demands for high quality standards in the plastics industry, but the technology can be used for all kinds of granular bulk materials.  The list of requirements for a new, universal dedusting machine was long:

  • Remove dust and streamers with one machineXP Series Pelletron DeDuster Model XP180-XP1500
  • Separate and remove electro-statically charged dust particles
  • Fit on injection molding machines
  • Offer low construction height
  • Fit on top of extruders and under silos
  • Reduce remaining dust level after cleaning to <50PPM

C-20 DeDuster by PelletronTo address this list of requirements, Pelletron developed a cleaning machine that combines a variety of air wash principles, plus the revolutionary electro-static flux field feature, and built it with the lowest possible construction height. When electrostatically charged particles enter into the Magnetic Flux Field, the resulting “Lorentz Force” weakens the electro-static bond between fine dust and plastic pellets. This weakening, in combination with the air flow, allows the micro fine particles attracted to the pellet surfaces to be removed.

Resin Bins

Storage & Transfer of Material

MAC Resin Bins can be customized in many ways. Vacuum components can be added to the top or bottom, you can add convenient lid holders to the side, as well as other soft good accessories are available.

Self-emptying resin bins are designed for use with vacuum loading systems using pickup wands. The vacuum wand is inserted into a tube on the bin. This tube is angled and directed to the lowest point in the bin where resin can be picked up by the wand. Unit comes with a lid, full swivel casters, and most are stackable up to three high! EXCLUDING Models: RB800C & RB1200C.
Using resin bins in a plastic injection molding plant can immediately help with material control and cleanliness. Resin bins are a perfect solution to health and safety regulations controlling the manual lifting of heavy loads such as bags of raw material.
