DeDusting solutions for the plastic processing and plastic manufacturing industry
Pelletron is a full service partner focused on delivering quality solutions to its partner-customers in the plastics industry. Pelletron began in 1986 by providing DeDusting solutions to plastic processors. The DeDusters helped plastic molders and extruders achieve near perfect end-products with extremely low scrap rates. Today, Pelletron is respected as the worldwide leader in DeDusting technology with a full-service network and satisfied customers located around the world. Pelletron has expanded its services to provide plastic manufacturers and compounders with a full range of solutions, including turnkey pneumatic conveying systems and a full line of conveying components. Pelletron also offers a complete series of in-line and off-line DeDusting systems for the removal of dust and streamers. Pelletron is committed to providing the highest level of quality, service, and expertise to its Bulk Material Handling customers around the world. In fact, this commitment runs so deep in the company’s culture, it was necessary to create a word that described our passion: The word is Bulkmatology™, The Nature of Bulk Material Handling.
Founded in 1986, Pelletron Corporation began providing DeDusting solutions to processors and manufacturers in an array of applications including plastics, recycling, automotive, medical equipment, mining, and food. With its patented DeDuster, Pelletron has helped thousands of companies around the world to improve their production processes by separating contaminants from virgin and recycled materials before processing. Today, Pelletron is recognized as the worldwide leader in DeDusting solutions and offers 12 different models with processing capacities of up to 200,000 lbs/hour. In 2003, Pelletron Corporation expanded it’s service in the Bulk Material Handling Industry by offering a full range of components including Rotary Valves, Diverter Valves, Pellbows™, special Dust Collectors and Accessories. Pelletron's System-Design Team specializes in the design of dilute and dense phase conveying systems with over 100 combined years of experience - from planning and logistics, to start-up and support. Pelletron’s business principal is simple; "Do it right the first time."
Developed for injection molders – the new lightweight DeDuster® made by Pelletron (patent pending)
Pelletron, a pioneer in dedusting technology, introduces the C-20, a completely new DeDuster® design developed specifically for injection molding processes.
+ Excellent cleaning/dedusting results
+ Low construction height – 9.5in (240mm)
+ Lightweight design – 20lbs (9kg)
+ Low cost investment
Removing dust and streamers prevents the creation of black or weak spots in finished products and results in reduced scrap rates, higher quality parts and improved profit.
The lightweight C-20 DeDuster® weighs 20lbs (9kg) and requires only 9.5in (240mm) for installation between the hopper loader and inlet hopper of an injection molding machine. The high cleaning efficiency offers results comparable to the P1 DeDuster®, the current product-of-choice for injection molding applications. It features stainless steel construction, 110 or 220V operation and only consumes 2-3CFM (3.4-5m3/hr) compressed air at 20-30psi (1.5-2bar) pressure.
The C-20 DeDuster® is designed for a nominal product flow rate of 50lbs/h (~20kg/h) at 30lbs/ft3 (560kg/m³) bulk density. Flow rates up to 70lbs/h (30kg/h) are possible for products with higher bulk densities.
How it works:
The design of the C-20 builds upon the features of the proven mini-DeDuster® Series. The product inlet has an integrated agitator to reduce “bridging” and the Venturi design maximizes dust removal performance and minimizes carryover of good product into the dust collector. It operates with compressed air supplied directly from the plant air supply instead of from a separate fan.
Inside the unit, the compressed air is split into two air streams for optimal removal of dust and streamers, and an ionizer is used to release the electrostatic bond between the pellets and the dust. The cleaning air blows the removed fines and streamers into two mini-cyclones, which separate them from the air. The separated contaminants are collected in a clear dust collection box and the cleaned air is filtered and released to the atmosphere. For creation of a negative pressure in the entire device, outside air is pulled in through a filter-protected opening.

It’s hard to generalize about auxiliary equipment, but a few trends stood out at K, including: greater energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and cleaning, controls that provide more real-time and historical process information and greater ease of use.
AGS Technology Inc. in Schaumburg, Ill., was started in 1995 with a simple concept: to be the low-cost custom injection molder of automotive parts by using recycled plastics formulated to exacting quality standards.
At K 2013, a compact new De-Duster mounts atop molding machines.
Pelletron system eliminated streamers were gone and cut the dust level down to a range of 30 to 50 ppm.
Auxiliary equipment takes in a broad range of functions, from materials preparation to post-mold finishing.
There will be an extraordinary range of new auxiliary equipment on display at the show.
Angel hairs wreak havoc on plastics processing: clogging filters, plugging conveying lines, causing feed problems at the blender, and jamming up machine throats. Here's how to prevent their formation.
For high-volume pneumatic conveying in plastics resin and compounding plants, the standard today is dense-phase conveying, whereby the resin moves in “plugs” with low velocity and high pressure.
From materials drying, feeding, and blending to process heating/cooling, scrap reclaiming, testing, welding, and decorating—the K 2010 show this month in Dusseldorf, Germany, will have news in all categories of auxiliary equipment.
Visitors to the recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago were looking for materials handling equipment that could do more than dry, blend, or convey resins. It had to do those things while saving energy, providing faster and easier maintenance, speeding product changeovers, reducing labor cost, minimizing waste, and providing better value for money. The new products cited below addressed those needs and more.
A compact dedusting unit for resin pellets and regrind is suited to spaces with restricted clearances.
Two new rotary valves with patented anti-shearing device and double lip seals were introduced for conveying pellets and granules by Pelletron Corp., Lancaster, Pa.
NPE 2006 held no revolutionary changes in dryers, blenders, feeders, loaders, or conveying controls, but widely adopted improvements make the newest models easier to use and maintain—and easier on the budget, too.
Five exhibitors at the recent NPE show in Chicago brought out devices for dust control in materials handling: The newest version of DeDuster technology from Pelletron Corp., Lancaster, Pa., is the XP Series (photo), which is more economical, more energy efficient, and half the height of previous models but has twice the cleaning area for higher throughput.
Dryers, feeders, blenders, loaders, metal detectors, level sensors, mechanical and pneumatic conveyors, silos, bins, pumps, filters, valves, box fillers, bag dumpers, and materials-handling control systems constitute one of the biggest categories of products on display at NPE.
Flow-Enhancer’s unique design features allow easy retrofit into existing systems, or saves the stepping of pipes in new systems.
Pelletron DeDusters save time and increase profitability by removing unwanted, costly dust from your product.
Pelletron's dust prevention solutions are designed to increase the life-span of your elbows and reduce maintenance costs.
Pelletron offers a full range of components including Rotary Valves, Diverter Valves, Pellbows™, special Dust Collectors and Accessories.
It's a common problem that goes by a lot of names: dust, fines, streamers, angel hair.
