Nordson XALOY's Water Ring Pelletizing Systems offer a modern, cost-effective method of pelletizing a wide range of unfilled and filled thermoplastic polymers.
The Water Ring Hot Die Face ensures a consistent, uniform pellet and is insensitive to short term polymer flow interruptions. Pellets are cut and immediately quenched in a unique cooling chamber design that transfers the pellet slurry to the spin dryer. An integral dryer blower is standard for improved drying efficiency. Typical applications include polymer reclaim, compounding, color concentrates and polymerization.
Simple, trouble-free cutting.
Nordson XALOY's advanced cutter head design evenly distributes molten polymer to the die. Since pellets are cut in air, there are no strands to drop, nor will die holes freeze off in the event of momentary flow disruption.
Efficient pellet cooling.
Submersion of the pellet in the water slurry system provides highly efficient heat transfer. Water temperature and residence time can be varied to accommodate specific resin cooling requirements.
All circulating water is continuously filtered through high-capacity filters fitted to the dewatering and dryer drain lines. Filters can be easily changed or cleaned without tools or line shutdown.
