Pelletron Corp., which makes equipment for removing dust, fines and fluff from resin pellets, introduced the XP-series of dedusters.
Pelletron cut the height of the deduster in half, reducing the space needed for installation. The design also doubled the area of the cleaning decks, to boost throughput, and cut air consumption by improving the air distribution setup.
New integrated air boosters provide accurate flow control. A newly designed venturi zone minimizes the carry-over.
The company from Lancaster, Pa., also introduced a new family of its Pellbow elbow shapes to streamline movement of pneumatically conveyed resin and cut dust and streamers as it speeds along. Pelletron enlarged the bend at the incoming side to produce a soft layer of pallets just before they impact the angled part.
Pelletron also introduced a new ball-type diverter valve for powders and pellets. A modular design means the valve can be changed to flow angles of 45, 90 and 135 degrees.
