When designing a plant, plastic manufacturers are confronted with several decisions that might have far-reaching consequences in terms of the product quality as well as plant efficiency and flexibility. One of those decisions usually applies to the conveying method.
While dilute phase conveying can be used for a wide variety of materials, its counterpart, the dense phase conveying method, is typically the preferred choice when handling sensitive bulk solids. Plastic pellets such as Polyolefine Elastomere, Polyethylen Resins or Polycarbonate require a gentle handling. Conti-Schub® is, along with the INTACON® control unit the optimal solution for those kinds of materials.
