The History

Pelletron Corporation was founded by Jerry Paulson in 1987 to address the need for a dust removal system to aid in the plastic manufacturing process. The concept, nurtured in the garage of his home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, was based on kinetic energy and its effect on granules as they pass through the pneumatic conveying systems that are a common part of the production process. 

Paulson’s solution, the Kinetic Gravity DeDuster®, used a magnetic flux field to disrupt the electrostatic charge between contaminants and pellets, and a patented air wash deck to separate and remove those contaminants. The dedusting process improved product quality, saved production time and reduced scrap.

In 2003, the company began to expand into the pneumatic conveying field. In 2010, pelletroneurope was established in Bodnegg, Germany, to better address the needs of the global market. The company continues to develop and patent various new DeDuster® systems, components and conveying technologies, and today is a well-established supplier for pneumatic conveying systems and components in the dry bulk handling industry. Pelletron Corporation’s highly experienced Bulkmatology® team has many years of knowledge in designing and building systems that meet the unique and individual needs of customers in a variety of industries. Today, in addition to dedusting systems, Pelletron, and its network of representatives, offers a full range of pneumatic conveying products and services to customers world-wide.
