FARREL POMINI’s exhibition theme was, “What’s New at FARREL POMINI”. There are a number of recent developments that FARREL POMINI was excited to share with customers.
On exhibit was a CP1000, the mid-sized processor of the CP Series II™ Compact Processor line of equipment. The CP1000 contained new features, available on new machines and for retrofits:
• The patent-pending Self Aligning Seal (SAS) offers faster installation, improved powder seal performance and longer seal life than standard seals
• The Synergy Control System, a complete automation and control system that seamlessly integrates upstream and downstream equipment across a variety of suppliers standardizing processing lines while increasing operational agility and equipment safety. Synergy provides real-time data for mid-process adjustments to enhance productivity and product quality and can be monitored for remote troubleshooting leading to optimized productivity
• New design Vent Assembly, improving vent performance and minimizing vent discharge, giving improved product quality and reducing waste
Also on exhibit were the latest technology CPXL Rotors. FARREL POMINI has extended the rotor technology for Continuous Mixing processors allowing FARREL POMINI to support existing POMINI LCM customers and add LCM based rotor technology to the options available to all FARREL POMINI customers. The CPXL Compact Processor has an increased mixing section from 6:1 L/D to a nominal 10:1 L/D and the 2-Stage LCM Technology Rotors.
In addition to new technology features, FARREL POMINI was happy to share information about their new facility currently under construction within five miles of the existing location in Ansonia, Connecticut USA. The new custom designed facility will serve as corporate headquarters and house Administration, Operations and Research & Development. FARREL POMINI expects to be relocated at the end of 2015 with a grand opening celebration in early 2016.
