Openingand closing the vessel cover isfast and automated, thus reducingoverall cycle time and addingefficiency to the production operation.Design: The threadless pin closureoffers advantages overthreaded type closures: Its quickand simple straight-line movementhelps to cut cycle time, andis not subject to thread galling oruneven stress distribution.System trong>comtrong>ponents: pressurevessel, cover, locking pin, pressurevalve system, electronic controlsystem with PLC, integralfluid reservoir, and pressurizingpump.Options:• Product basket attached tocover• Automated product handlingwith conveyors• Dual filter with dirt alarm andfilter pumps• Faster cyclingStandard Models (Other pressures and sizes available on request)ModelModel CP2036Footprint: 100” x 48”.Height to top of vessel: 100”Height to top of lifting device: 160”OperatingVessel Size (in.) trong>Presstrong>ure (psi) Inside Dia.
