Materials Handling & Drying
Central Conveying of Pellets and Powders
Motan is a world leading supplier of complex centralized material feed systems. Each system is designed to suit the customers individual factors such as throughput, materials types, and plant layout. A wide selection of loaders with a variety of conveying options, controls, blowers, and filter techniques allow the creation of the optimum system for the customers facility.
System Controls - From simple cost effective solutions to innovative state-of-the-art controls with Ethernet-based open network architecture. There are several different levels of automation are available for controlling the METRO G loaders.
SELVAC 2 - market-proven microprocessor-based control.
METROnet S - a soft PLC conveying control for standard conveying systems.
METROnet AE and AN - the ultimate networkable system toolkit for complex conveying systems with either a soft PLC or Siemens S7 PLC with WEBpanel and decentralized CAN Bus nodes for the connection of peripheral equipment.
All METROnet controls are totally integrated in the CONTROLnet platform and can be linked to other controls via Ethernet
Positive Displacement Vacuum Pumps - High efficiency, claw style positive displacement pumps provide the highest level of vacuum power available for conveying plastic material. The variable frequency pumps employ an advanced claw-shaped lobe design that cuts through and pressurizes air in a nearly maintenance free package. These pumps deliver stronger conveying performance at longer distances and higher elevations for challenging conveying applications.
Automatic Conveying Equates to Greater Productivity
Motan's conveying systems optimize material flow, reduce waste and boost the productivity of the production line. Motan offers integrated, end-to-end conveying systems and individual units. (click on the images below to see more information).

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 machine
- 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
To 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.

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.
