WATER RING PELLETIZER INTRODUCED IN NORTH AMERICA PROVIDES ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY, RELIABILITY, AND PRODUCT QUALITY

Filtec GRO Water Ring Pelletizer

Named Exclusive Distributor by Filtec of Italy, ADG Solutions Will Provide Engineering Service, Technical Support, and Spare Parts

FAIRFIELD, CT, U.S.A., June 26, 2013: Filtec S.a.s., one of the largest suppliers of pelletizers in Europe, has appointed ADG Solutions as its exclusive distributor in North America, providing compounders and reclaimers here with access to equipment proven to excel in efficiency, reliability, wear-resistance, and ease of maintenance, it was announced today by ADG Solutions president Sandy Guthrie.

ADG will supply Filtec products and parts and provide technical support and engineering services. Its initial offering is the Filtec GRO water ring pelletizer, which is available in models with output capabilities from 90 to 11,000 lb./hr. (40 to 5,000 kg/hr)

In addition to the track record of the GRO pelletizer in Europe, Mr.Guthrie cited his own prior experience with the equipment as a component in reclaim lines that he has engineered for customers in the U.S. “The record shows that in comparison with other water-ring systems, the Filtec GRO pelletizer exhibits a longer working life and entails less downtime for job changeovers and maintenance,” he said. “Its one-piece design, with fully integrated cutting chamber, water system, and dryer, eliminates complications like extra piping and water overflows.”

Advantages of the GRO pelletizer noted by Mr. Guthrie include:

--Reduced wear to die face and blades as a result of a blade-holding mechanism that allows the blades to “float,” accommodating surface variations in the die face.

--Greater productivity. The horizontal alignment of the cutting chamber with the extruder eliminates the 90-degree turn on many other systems, enhancing throughput, eliminating agglomeration, and reducing downtime for maintenance by providing easier access to the blades and die face. Blades can be changed in less than two minutes.

--Enhanced product quality. Contributing to product consistency are the streamlined path of material as it moves through the system, the wear resistance of the cutting chamber, and an oversized dryer, which ensures complete drying of the material.

Information about Filtec S.a.s. is available online at www.filtec.it.
