Sphero S Underwater Pelletizing System
Cost-Effective Alternative to Larger Systems
Pump Solutions Group (PSG), a business unit within Dover Corporation, officially unveiled its new Automatik Plastics Machinery Sphero S Underwater Pelletizing System at Chinaplas 2014, held in Shanghai in April. Automatik’s new Sphero S has been specifically designed to be a cost-effective alternative to larger and more customizable systems.
According to the manufacturer, the Sphero S incorporates a variety of innovative features, making it ideally suited for compounding, masterbatch and recycling applications with medium throughputs, typically between 700-3,000 kg/hour. The major technological advancements in the Sphero S include new pneumatic diverter valves that optimize the flow channel and a user-friendly, ergonomic design for easy cleaning and quick changes of die plates.
Other improvements to the Sphero S include a frame that allows it to be mounted on a single mobile structure, which guarantees a perfect alignment and a reduced footprint. In addition, special attention has been given to the design of the cutting tools to guarantee process integrity and ensure the production of evenly shaped, high-quality pellets.
