The enhancements to the company's Purging Recovery System [TM] (PRS) have also increased the efficiency of granulating
polystyrene, flexible vinyl, and other polymers that might otherwise melt or degrade under the shear forces of size reduction, causing backup or clumping that shuts the system down.
The plant will have a capacity of receiving, processing and granulating
11,000 tonnes per day of liquid sulphur from Habshan gas plants and also includes storage of liquid sulphur and granulated sulphur, blocking, rail car loading and generation of required utilities.
High quality granulating
is provided through controlled mixing and a large granulating
surface; particle size can be determined by choosing specific process parameters; and quick drying is achieved through high internal heat transfer, even on the lowest power input.
A tire granulating
plant from the company comprises two lines, one for truck tires and one for car tires, and takes primarily metal-free pieces of 15-20 mm and granulates the material into a range of crumb sizes for various end use applications.
Removable cutting-chamber inserts are a solution to high wear from granulating
glass-filled and other abrasive materials.
At Kabwe an induction melting furnace for settling and granulating
cobalt-rich alloy will be commissioned in November and a 10 tonne electric furnace will be installed in December when slag processing should increase to the planned first year level of about 300 tonnes per day (90,000 TPA) to yield around 40,000 kg of contained cobalt per month.
The company's tire granulating
system is described in the literature as an economical and reliable package which produces consistent granule quality on a continuous basis.
USG high-capacity granulator for large-volume recycling operation and for granulating
large and tough materials.
Further size reduction could be done by a variety of methods, such as ball or hammer milling, cryogenic grinding, and knife granulating
Low-horsepower dual-stage units for lumps and purgings have chipping-knife stage that feeds chips into a second stage for granulating
Traditionally, rubber granulating
has been a dirty and noisy operation.
The GR1600 granulator/grinder, fitted with two granulating
and two grinding chambers, is specifically designed to both granulate steel-free rubber chips of up to 8 mm in size, without the overheating and low capacity problems generally encountered with the plastic granulators traditionally used by tire recyclers, according to the literature.
