FUCHS: Sifting of plastic granules with the SIFTOMAT plansifter

Sifting plastic granules and especially master batches aims to separate granules that are too big, so-called longs, and grains that are too fine, from the “good” product. The sifting process tends to increase the quality of the granule in order to sell it easier or at a better price.

Nevertheless, sifting is not a very simple process and a thorough analysis of the problem was required, as well as a high number of trials until theory could be converted into practice in order to achieve the desired result.

Poeth introduces Z-Conveyor for the complete emptying of fine, light powders

Hygienic transport system minimises capacity loss and contamination
The complete emptying of transport systems is one of the main conditions for efficient and contamination-free processing of powders, grains and granular materials. In particular with the transport of light, fine powders the complete emptying of transport systems is easier said than done. For this reason Poeth developed its new Z-Conveyor which minimises the amount of light powders left behind in transport systems and optimises production capacity. An additional advantage of Poeth’s Z-Conveyor is the low energy consumption. The new Z-Conveyor is also explosion safe, eliminating the need for costly investment in ATEX safety systems.
