The article focuses on Lectro Engineering Co.'s RTS Technology. With the help of the technology, common resins could be treated while in powder form. The company's Lectro-Treat LT2000, a machine that it introduced to replace flame treatment systems, was modified to develop RTS system. Processors or material suppliers can treat 2,000-4,000 pounds of resin per hour under the new RTS design.
