Agglomeration of Carpet and Flooring Waste with The Plast-Agglomerator, type PFV

Continuous production of free flowing granules from Carpet and Flooring Waste

The Plast-Agglomerator is a compact, fully automatic, and a proven continuous system that converts thermoplastic waste into high quality, free flowing granules, which are later used as valuable raw material in further processes.

Method of Operation

This PALLMANN Agglomeration process offers the unique advantage of material gentle agglomeration with minimum heat and minimum thermo-degradable damage.

From a feed hopper, an auger feeds the material to the agglomerating chamber.  Through frictional only, the material is sintered or plasticized and pressed through the holes of a special die.  Agglomeration occurs in a fraction of a second, and right below the melting point of the material.  Material exiting the die is cut by rotating knives and then conveyed by air to a cyclone separator into the hot-melt granulator.

The standard Plast-Agglomerator system consists of the following processing steps:  Granulating, Pneumatic conveying, Storing, Feeding, Agglomerating, Hot-melt granulating, Pneumatic Conveying, Pre-cooling, Air classifying, Transport and Cooling.
