-Gravimetric Feeder an ‘Industry First’ for Micro-Molding Sector

Designed for plastics processors in the growing micro-molding market, a gravimetric feeder described as an “industry first” by Ampacet enables accurate dosing down to the pellet level for medical, automotive, and electronics applications.

The patented ColorSave-Micro uses a single, vibratory, protected inner channel to eliminate exterior vibration and consistently deliver an accurate dose.

ColorSave-Micro can accurately dispense materials with let-down ratios (LDRs) as low as 0.1% to 0.3% for small-part production or to reduce material costs for extruded parts. Gravimetric weighing ensures consistent accuracy when compared with volumetric micro feeders.

-India’s proposed 15% ‘covid tax’ draws ire from chemical end-users

India is proposing to impose a 15% tax on all chemical and petrochemical imports, to protect the domestic industry in the current fiscal year ending March 2021 as the south Asian nation battles the coronavirus pandemic.

Downstream end-users, however, have posed strong opposition to the measure dubbed as “covid (coronavirus disease) tax” – which was supposed to take effect for 11 months from May 2020 – as this will translate to higher cost of production.

The proposed provisional duty would be applicable on all imports under India’s free trade agreements (FTAs) and would also cover both organic and inorganic chemicals, plastics, rubbers, man-made filaments and staple fibres. Petrochemicals Enzymes Crude Oil

-Asia petrochemical markets track recent crude gains as demand picks up

Asia’s petrochemical markets are tracking recent gains in crude oil as demand has picked up as more economies are gradually re-opening from pandemic-induced lockdowns, but the overall outlook is still riddled with uncertainties.

Naphtha, which is the main feedstock for petrochemical production in Asia, was flat at around $289.25/tonne CFR (cost & freight) Japan, in line with range-bound crude markets on Wednesday noon, amid ample supply. Petrochemicals Enzymes Crude Oil

Brent crude was trading at above $34/bbl, while US crude was at around $32/bbl.

In the benzene market, recent crude-driven gains were being constrained to some degree by tight storage conditions in China, which caused storage fees to spike. Spot prices were unchanged at $389/tonne FOB (free on board) Korea at midday.
