Pneumatic Conveyor For Plastic Pellets

As companies are pushed for better productivity, the need for operator intervention has to be minimized. The EXAIR Line Vacs are used extensively in the extrusion industry to convey plastic pellets and regrind to their extruders.

Blank CD disks are a fraction of the cost they were several years ago because of an innovative machine that completes a product from plastic pellets to the finished product out the other end. When they punch the holes in the center disk, they capture the waste piece with an EXAIR Line Vac and return it to the feed hopper to be added to virgin material. This saves on material and labor costs and eliminates disposal costs.

Another example. This extrusion company has several lines that had to have a person load plastic pellets into a hopper. Using an EXAIR Line Vac they were able to automate that function. (see video).

There are countless other applications where a Line Vac can cost effectively transfer material. If you have an application where you think an EXAIR Line Vac could be of value, call one of our Application Engineers at 1-800-903-9247. They will review your application with you and make their recommendation. EXAIR then will back it up with a 30 day evaluation. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can return it for full credit within that time.
