The new Cyclone fine separator system from Size Reduction Specialists Corp. is designed to separate out the fines and powder produced by granulators.
The system works especially well with harder materials, or filled resins that shatter during granulation, such as liquid crystal polymers, according to SRS in East Lansing, Mich. The machine also works well with conventional blade grinders that create an excessive level of dust and fines.
The cylindrical machine houses a cone-shaped filter. The cap has an inlet tube that allows the regrind and the air to enter the cylinder and drop into the cone. Air pressure forces the fines through the perforations in the cone, then out through a tube for disposal.
