Novatec Inc. has introduced equipment for loading powders and for preparing PET resin for molding.
The line of powder vacuum chambers and powder vacuum loaders use compressed-air blow-back, for dusty regrind and powders, such as PVC power.
The Baltimore firm claims the equipment is less expensive and more compact than competitive products. The filter elements outperform bag filters, Novatec said.
The company said its standard systems, even those without blow-back controls, can be retrofitted easily to become powder chambers or powder loaders.
For PET, Novatec has combined its NovaDrier with its CCR continuous crystallizer to convert amorphous PET resin into crystallized pellets, in one continuous operation.
The crystallizer consists of an insulated hopper with an internal agitator to prevent agglomeration. A heater/blower combination maintains the required temperature for crystallization. The pellets are released, via a gravity flow, directly to the dryer.
