with optional ELC-16 control
Conair DuraLoad vacuum receivers are the industry standard
for trouble-free conveying of plastic pellets and regrinds. With
more than 60,000 receivers installed worldwide, the DuraLoad
answers the needs of processors who cannot afford to worry
about the reliability of their material transfer systems. Available
in either a hopper loading configuration with a discharge valve
or direct feed models with a glass hopper, every DuraLoad may
be outfitted to answer the needs of your operation with ratio
loading capability, heavy duty wear plates, a choice of control
voltages and many other options are also available.
VERSATILE, RUGGED AND RELIABLE RECEIVERS
Hopper loading models are ideal for
filling and maintaining the level of
material in machine hoppers, drying
hoppers or any other vessel. With our
reliable discharge valve, you will be
assured efficient, vacuum-tight loading and rapid material discharge with
no bridging.
Direct Feed models, with their choice
of glass reservoir sizes, are designed
to feed directly to processing machine throats without the need of interim hoppers. An airtight seal at the
machine throat is normally required,
but direct feed models can also be
fitted with an isolator valve to provide
additional application flexibility when
needed.
Duraload Receivers are available with
a Universal Terminal Box (UTB) or an
Easy Loading Control (ELC).
n
Direct feed or hopper loading
You choose the material delivery you need. Keep a hopper full or feed directly to
the machine throat.
n
Thick wall steel construction
Five precision engineered workhorse models are provided as standard with carbon steel. Stainless steel construction is optional.
n
Built-in sequencing valves
Provide vacuum control from the vacuum pump without additional wiring
or remote valving.
n
Modular components
No-tools access filter cleaning, screw-in tube stubs, plug-in electrical
components, plus dozens of optional accessories.
n
Choice of control
Select either the universal terminal box (UTB) or the new ELC loading control
for your receiver. The standard UTB works with B-32, IL-64, FLX, or ILS central
loading controls. The optional ELC control is a stand-alone loading control based
on a receiver integrated CAN open network. See the Easy Loading Control (ELC)
specification sheet for more information.

Engineered for Long Life
Trouble-free, Continuous Performance
For many years, Conair has built DuraLoad vacuum receivers with features
and functionality required by demanding plastics processing professionals.
They are easy to install, a snap to
maintain and are backed by Conair's
long-standing tradition of application
assistance, eternal customer support
and off-the-shelf spare parts. From
easy, drop-in filter screens, to extra
large discharge throats that eliminate
material bridging; to heavy-wall spun
construction, these conveying components are thoroughly engineered for
long life and trouble-free, continuous
performance.
DuraLoad receivers can be equipped with
Conair’s new optional Easy Loading Controls
(ELC-16). Individually mounted controls, up
to 16, operate within a single CAN open network. Each network offers a First-In/First-Out
(FIFO) priority demand. This feature provides
material to each receiver in order of its demand. The optional ControlMate pendant further adds to this feature by including the
capability to add a higher priority demand
tier.
INTEGRATED VACUUM
SEQUENCING VALVE
All DuraLoad series loaders incorporate a vacuum sequencing valve module right in the lid, so
there are never wires or extra compressed air lines to install. The lid may be easily removed from
the loader with no-tools lid clamps and a quick-release air fitting.
Each DuraLoad receiver can be equipped with
Conair’s exclusive Universal Terminal Box, providing the user with an industrial-strength,
quick-release electrical plug for connection to
the control. In addition, each input and output
device for the loader plugs into the UTB making
service or the addition of optional equipment
quick and easy. An optional on/off switch right
on the UTB is also available.
DIRECT FEED
All Direct Feed models feature quick
disconnect clamps for easy loader release
and thorough cleaning. An isolator valve
(shown here) may also be provided for nonairtight applications. The isolator valve can
also provide demand sensing on 4 and 15
pound glass hopper.

OPTIONS
A Broad Choice of DuraLoad Options Stretch the Value
of your DuraLoad Purchase
Volume Fill Sensor
High-Heat Vacuum Lid
Provides automatic shut-off of the loader's vacuum sequence when the loader is full. Also drives an alarm output on most Conair loading controls if not satisfied during
the vacuum sequence.
When the loader is exposed to temperatures exceeding
225 °F, this option outfits components in the lid (vacuum sequencing valve, tubing, etc.) with high heat capability to extend operational life in a heated
environment.
Material Valves
Stainless Steel Material Contact
Ratio Valve
Dual inlet, single outlet material
valve allows the loading of a second material (usually regrind) in
approximate, layered percentages along with virgin material. May be installed on loader
inlet or remotely (ratio signal must be provided from loading control).
See Ratio Valve specification sheet for more information.
Common Line Valve
An isolation valve for the
material line, typically used
for systems employing a common material line connected to
multiple loaders.
See Common Line Valve specification
sheet for more information.
High-Performance Valves
Ratio and Line valves are constructed with both
high heat and abrasive resistant materials to withstand
the rigors of conveying hot and/or highly abrasive materials.
Provides stainless steel in place of carbon steel. The 304
grade stainless steel is uncoated internally (in material
contact areas), but powder coated externally for optimum
cosmetic appearance.
Remote Demand Sensor
To trigger the operation of the loader (demand) from a location other than directly below the loader, a remote demand sensor may be employed. Useful on oversized
drying hoppers to sense through a window (6 foot cable
provided) or when off-loading a granulator (30 foot cable
provided). Extension cables also available.
Positive Discharge Valve
Provides a pneumatically driven discharge valve on the
bottom of the loader in the event that gravity will not sufficiently open the standard flapper after loading. Useful
for very light materials or when high CFM drying hoppers
are being loaded.
Hopper Venting
Used to provide relief of displaced air in the receiving
vessel below the loader during material discharge.
Wear Plates
T-1 tool steel plates, installed inside the loader body, radically reduce hopper wear-through when conveying highly
abrasive materials like glass filled compounds. May be
easily replaced, if ever needed.
Magnets
An airtight, Drawer Magnet may be added below any direct feed DuraLoad to trap ferrous metal. Or, a low cost
Grate Magnet may be inserted directly into the glass hopper of the direct feed receiver to save head room.
Displaced air vented to
atmosphere.
