Cañon City, CO – Portec Flomaster – a leading manufacturer of specialty conveyors, will demonstrate the newest addition to its product line, the Portec PFD in Booth 1843 at ProMat 2007 (January 8-11, 2007, McCormick Place South, Chicago, IL).
The Portec PFD is a power face diverter (PFD) that diverts product without the use of a belt. Instead, it uses a patented double-chain technology. This technology increases the speed and reliability of the PFD while decreasing maintenance. It has been engineered for use where precise control of a power face diverter arm is desired. The shape and mounting footprint allow it to be easily installed in existing conveyor applications without extensive modifications. It does not need to be attached to the conveyor system and can be cantilevered up to 10 feet without overhead supports. Both actuator and power face are independently controlled.
“Portec is dedicated to growth through truly innovative products,” states Joe Forte, Portec’s Vice-President of Operations. “Our power face diverter brings something new and exciting to an otherwise ‘variations on an old theme’ industry”.
