The “Res L” series – for companies preferring a real classic
The “Res L” project has come to us substantially unchanged in its features from the ‘90s: Loading and Unloading Workstations are next to each other, the Drying Unit is a tunnel oven, the Mesh Attachment and Resin Application Workstation consists of at least three tables and a superior capacity Polymerization Unit.
Such a layout distinguished the “S.E.I. Resin Lines” which between 1992 and 1993 shot to fame thanks to their incredible hourly productivity for that time, a rate which is still an impressive performance today.
The age of the project is evident when it comes to processing humidity absorbing stone and especially when we consider that the Resin Lines have to work together with gang saws and honing machinery (which involve the stone getting wet). Indeed, however well heated and ventilated, a tunnel oven can never contain enough slabs to guarantee the thorough drying of the stone, especially if the material has a high absorption rate. To be precise, the capacity of tunnels is not in proportion to the high production capacity of these plants, so there is the risk that the slabs reach the mesh attachment and resin application area too quickly. Therefore, the “Res Top” and “Res Lux” versions (which are equipped with 20 to 90 slab-capacity Drying Units) are preferable to the “Res L”.
Despite this, the “Res L” Resin Lines are still excellent solutions in some cases, such as surface enhancement of easy to dry granite or restoration of onyx, a treatment which can only be carried out by workers with a line of workbenches to fix fractured slabs and a specialized oven for the use of slow-curing, non-yellowing low viscosity resins.
