Polymaster Direct Packaging Unit
Avangard Innovative (AI) specializes in ready sales packaging of railcar products for our customers. The Polymaster is the industry’s leading on-the-run portable pneumatic conveying machine. This technology incorporates high speed bulk material conveying, without the risk of contamination.
The Polymaster has the ability to transfer plastic pellets and resins at rates of up to 80,000 lbs per hour, and the capability to box 1,000 lbs of material per minute. Since the Polymaster is self-contained; polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC and PET are just a few of the types of products that can be conveyed. The Polymaster can also serve as a temporary backup system for shutdowns or system pluggage. We will package plastic pellets into Gaylord boxes, super saks, plastic crates, and many other types of containment.
Prime Material Transfers
Our Polymaster units are capable of transferring prime plastic from one railcar to another. These units can also remove plastic from railcars and load directly into pneumatic trailers or overseas containers. We have used the Polymaster units for drying wet pellets, blending two products together, improving production rates, and replacing in-plant loading systems during shutdowns. The units have even been used to screen and catch foreign objects in railcars.
All of our Polymaster units are exposed to only prime plastics. No colored or black pellets/flake are ever processed with these units. We maintain the highest level of quality control to ensure that our customers’ products are kept at their prime state at all times during processing.
Load Sampling and Delivery
AI crews are experienced in working with customers’ laboratories to bring them various product samples which need to be tested. Our crews will retrieve samples from a railcar at an off-site location. These samples range in size from as small as 18 oz to as much as 2,000–3,000 lbs each. After the samples are gathered they are delivered to a designated laboratory for analysis.
Inspection / Quality Control
Customers count on AI to help ensure that their products are of the highest quality and free from contamination. We have trained on-site personnel assigned to inspect pneumatic trailers that are sent in to vacuum materials from railcars. Once the paperwork has been confirmed and each compartment on the trailer has been visually inspected, we take the pneumatic truck drivers directly to the proper railcar and insure that all plant safety practices are followed. Once the trailer has been loaded, we process all paperwork and deliver to our customers for review.
We remain very active in our customers’ health and safety programs, and will assist with implementation and follow-up to processes and procedures regarding contractors. AI has helped to write many of the current in-house safety plans in use at customers’ sites today.
