STRANDPHASE® is a conveying technology for gentle conveying of granular products. Moderate velocities prevent breakage and attrition of the conveyed product, keeps the generation of dust at a very low level and prevents the creation of long angel hair. Most importantly, STRANDPHASE® does not create fine micro-dust as seen in dense phase systems or long streamers created in dilute phase systems. In many cases, the pipe diameters are smaller in comparison with dense phase systems. Because of these advantages, the investment costs for large scale STRANDPHASE® systems are much lower than slow-motion dense phase systems.
Pellbow® is a special, patented pipe elbow. The design resembles a standard short-radius elbow with a large expanded chamber between the inlet and discharge of the elbow. The soft impact of pellets in the slurry zone and the low wall friction eliminate the creation of streamers and make the Pellbow® wear-resistant. Its pressure loss is only slightly higher than that of standard long and short-radius elbows. A complete purge is accomplished simply by using the same conveying air volume and pressure.
DeDuster® is the dust and angel hair removal unit. Regardless of conveying method used, friction is generated by the velocity and pressure. This results in attrition of the conveyed product. The DeDuster® removes dust particles providing high quality resin with remaining dust content below 50PPM. No other dust removal unit can reach this cleaning efficiency.
Existing dense phase and dilute phase systems may be upgraded to incorporate pellcon3® technology. Upgrading an existing system to pellcon3® provides a quick return-on-investment. pellcon3® systems guarantee high quality resins, are easy to operate, easy to maintain and are low in investment costs, which results in higher market prices for your conveyed materials.
