Pelletron Corp., Lancaster, Pa., has made enhancements to two of its most popular Deduster models. The C‐20 DeDuster (top) now offers molders an improved inlet design for better flow rate control; a new flexible agitator paddle for gentler material handling; and a new combined cyclonic dust collection module. The unit is available at 2015 prices. Introduced in 2014, the C-20 is billed as simple to operate and easy to clean. Pelletron calls it the most effective dust-removal system on the market, capable of processing up to 100 lb/hr of dry, granular material, yet requiring no additional floor space.
Menatime, Pelletron's RC1 DeDuster now features a new variable-speed paddle for precise control of material flow and flexibility; a new flexible agitator paddle for gentler material handling; a new combined cyclone/filter/fan assembly to reduce overall system footprint; a new variable-speed wash air fan for precise cleaning air control; an improved body casting with third window for enhanced performance monitoring as material flows over the washdeck; tool-free access to the inside of the unit; and a simple plug‐n‐play design for quick, easy installation of the complete RC1 DeDuster system. Introduced in 2012, the RC1 DeDuster is said to fill the need for a compact, efficient, easy‐to‐maintain dust removal system capable of processing from 50 to 750 lb/hr of dry, granular material.
