Conair Group said its new Vortex Spray Pelletizer combines the benefits of underwater and ring-pelletizer designs in a technology that improves material quality and ease of operation.
The VSP brings advantages of dry die-face processing to a broader range of polymers, including PVCs and masterbatch compounds, according to Conair of Pittsburgh.
Advantages include a straight-line flow path that minimizes shear and maintains resin quality; reduced material hang-up so clean-outs between batches are faster; and the elimination of material freezing off at the die because of disruption in polymer flow.
An improved “vortex” cooling system removes heat up to 50 percent faster than conventional designs, Conair claims.
