Other Industries – Food, Minerals, Pharmaceuticals, Recycling
Pelletron’s pneumatic conveying and dedusting technologies and components provide perfect solutions for food, mineral, pharmaceutical and recycling applications.
The DeDuster® can be used for cleaning dry bulk solids in the food, mineral and pharmaceutical industries as well as for regrind. Some examples for materials that require cleaning are:
- Rice, corn, peanuts, coffee beans
- Iron ore, special sand, wood pellets
- Tablets, pills
- And many more…
Removal of dust is often necessary because of the environmental challenge it creates. Pelletron developed a special, wear-resistant DeDuster® for cleaning iron ore to address the health concerns associated with iron ore dust in the air and to save energy by reducing the dust that hinders the melting process.
Specialized processes for production of virgin grade PET resins made from recycled PET bottles were initiated by the PET bottle and PET recycling industries. It is common practice for plastics processing companies to grind plastic scrap for reuse. The regrind is dusty and needs to be cleaned before reprocessing in a molding machine or extruder. The Pelletron DeDuster® is the most efficient dust removal machine on the market for this purpose. The quality of the cleaned regrind is nearly as good as virgin resin. Pelletron DeDuster® systems are available in many sizes and configurations making them the obvious choice for a variety of applications in a broad range of capacities.
