Plantech-CST has won another challenge: tanks with granules totally free of contamination.
MKP, the Spanish agent of Syncro Group, wanted to highlight the efficiency of Plantech-CST team with these words: “I want to thank you for your commitment and timely intervention at one of our most important customers, a leader in PET recycling. The successfully tested system works perfectly and the product arrives at the silos free of contamination such as angel hair and dust. The end customer signed the protocol of the system installation after carrying out several tests and seeing first-hand that the granule met all the high standards required, so much so that they will immediately start loading tanks of final product to be shipped to customers directly from the silos”.
The ever-increasing need is to remove angel hair and/or dust from the granule in order to have a raw material stored in the silos perfectly clean and ready to be delivered to the end customer, ensuring the input of a high quality raw material into the process, thus minimizing waste and production waste.
In this specific case, the supply consists of three separating hoppers installed on existing silos and combined with a centralized suction filter to separate the granules from dust and angel hair.
The separating hoppers are connected to the individual loading pipes of the silos where a special internal design of the hoppers forces the granules to fan out, allowing the countercurrent suction airflow to convey the dust and angel hair to the dust collector filter.
This Plantech-CST system is highly efficient and guarantees an unrivalled degree of granule cleanliness, ensuring high production standards.
The system reaches its maximum level of efficiency when combined with dense phase pneumatic conveying, which substantially reduces angel hair formation during raw material transport.
The possible applications are countless; from the loading of silos from tanks to the pneumatic transport of raw materials for plastic extrusion processes like blown film, cast, sheet, injection, pipes, cables, recycling and many more.
This conveying system can be implemented without any special modification to existing plants, making them more efficient and performing.
Minimizing the consumption of energy and raw materials are two key points that drive Syncro Group’s R&D division, which is increasingly committed to achieving the “Zero Waste Myssion”.
All the companies belonging to Syncro Group work together through a unique synergy with the aim of closing the circle of the Circular Economy.
