Its platform is controlled via a smart, highly intuitive HMI with internationally recognized symbols/icons, making operation extremely user-friendly for multi-language speaking work forces.

Processors visiting Marlen's booth will also get an advanced look at Marlen's newest Opti series pump which is powered by servo motor technology.

Bob Campbell, president, added, "Visitors will find our equipment on display in the Duravant family booth, located in the South Hall, booth #S-2147. We invite everyone to join us for freshly cooked food, good conversations and a chance to get caught up on what's new at Marlen."
