Using a pellet-cleaning system to separate the good from the bad and the ugly
A company installed a pelletcleaning system in each of its polypropylene pellet production lines to maximize production efficiencies and guarantee product quality for its customers.
When ConocoPhillips decided to build a new facility for producing polypropylene pellets, it wanted to ensure that the pellets would be free of fines, angel hair, streamers, and other debris when shipped to customers. This would be a challenge, since the pellets are prone to generate such debris during dilute-phase conveyance. The company worked with an engineering firm to solve this problem.
