Pelletron C-20 DeDuster®
Dust, streamer and angel hair remover.
1Controlled Feed Zone: The C-20 DeDuster® has a vibratory feeder driven by a pneumatic motor that doses the resin into the unit with whatever dust and streamers it contains. A knob for adjusting the resin flow rate is easily accessible on the front of the C-20 DeDuster® and the included level sensor stops the resin flow when downstream demand stops.
2Ionizing Zone: Compressed air uniformly distributes negative ions from the ion generator to neutralize the static charge that holds dust on the surface of the resin.
3Venturi Zone: An efficient compressed air operated vacuum generator creates the counter flow air stream that separates streamers and dust from the falling pellets or regrind.
4Air Inlet: The cleaning air is pulled from the atmosphere through a filtered opening on the side of the C-20 DeDuster®.
5Dust Collector: Unwanted dust and streamers are sent to the attached mini dust collector which features a cyclone separator and cartridge filter for the air before it is released to the atmosphere. The dust collector is easily emptied without needing tools to access the dust drum.
The C-20 DeDuster® is only 40 lb (18.2 kg) and 13.25”(337 mm) tall. Just plug in the unit to a single-phase power source, connect a W” compressed air line, and position the level sensor on a sight glass below the C-20 DeDuster®.
Material is typically fed to the hopper above the C-20 DeDuster® by a common vacuum loader with a flapper valve to isolate the conveying vacuum from the C-20 DeDuster®. No changes are made to your existing vacuum system control. The C-20 DeDuster® features an integrated variable speed feeder on its inlet to dose resin into the cleaning zone at a metered rate.
Turning the feed rate control knob during setup changes resin flow rate for a wide range of applications. The feeder automatically stops the resin flow into the C-20 DeDuster® when the level sensor below the C-20 DeDuster® detects resin. Of course, the flow is started again when the downstream process starts again and the level sensor does not detect resin anymore.
The maximum allowable temperature of the material that is processed by the C-20 DeDuster® is 180° F (82° C) so it is typically mounted to dryer inlets where the material is cooler than that limit. Contact Pelletron about solutions for higher temperature applications.
To see an immediate reduction in your scrap rate, be sure to clean the mold, extruder screw, and replace melt filters after installing the C-20 DeDuster®.
