Reclaim / Top-Up Unit

  • Reclaim Top-Up UnitThe AR/TU Automatic Reclaim/Top-up system is a self contained system to automatically operate and control the recovery of a re-usable over sprayed powder from the cyclone collection bins to the main system fluid bed, and to transfer fresh powder from a separate fluid bed, to ensure that the powder in the main fluid bed is kept at a constant level.

  • The recovery and top-up systems can be operated either individually or together.

  • All unit functions within the RTU-300 Control Unit are governed by a small PLC (Programmable Logic Controller).

  • Virgin powder transfer pumps triggered from level sensors fitted in the main fluid bed.

  • Maximum warning sensors provided in the cyclone collection bin and main fluid bed operate audio/visual signal to give warning that overflowing is imminent.

  • Reclaimed powder returned to the main fluid bed via a mini-cyclone (velocity reducer) and a simple pneumatically driven vibratory sieve.

  • Return of reclaimed powder operated on a timed basis utilizing a PLC duty cycle adjustable to suit individual installations.

  • Both reclaimed and fresh powder transferred by simple and efficient high volume venturi powder pumps.
