A new crystallizing pelletizer for PET pellets from BKG GmbH, a unit of Kreyenborg Group, Lawrenceville, Ga., has seen its fi rst two U.S. installations and four more are on order, all for PET resin producers. Other units have been sold in Europe to PET recyclers. After pelletizing and drying, hot pellets are deposited onto a vibrating conveyor, where they crystallize to the 40% level using residual heat from pelletizing. The material then needs only drying before molding or extrusion. Total capacity from all six U.S. crystallizing pelletizers will be over 1 billion lb/yr. These units will help make CPET more widely available in place of standard amorphous PET and may push recyclers to crystallize PET fl ake for customers. Tel: (770) 339-4177 . www.bkg.de
