Separating Large and Small Plastic Particles

Separating Large and Small Plastic Particles

A Netter customer in the plastics manufacturing industry was working with plastic granulates of different sizes. In order to process the material quickly and efficiently, the customer needed to separate the granulate pieces by size as it was conveyed.

The customer purchased a Netter KRE 25-120 closed trough and sieve with dual outlets, one for larger particles and one for smaller particles. They then installed two Netter NEG 25210 electric external vibrators to the equipment. During processing, the smaller granulates fell through the openings of the sieve and were conveyed through one outlet, while the larger pieces stayed on top of the mesh and were conveyed through the other outlet.
