A new-design pellet dryer for use with Nordson Corporation’s BKG® pelletizing systems meets the challenge posed by the steady growth in use of glass-filled and other abrasive materials by substantially reducing the time and cost associated with replacing “wear” parts.
The design reduces the number, complexity, and cost of the dryer components that are subject to abrasion and makes them more accessible to maintenance or replacement. While the new dryer has much the same overall appearance and footprint as a standard BKG dryer and provides the same throughput, there are substantial differences in the configuration of components subject to wear. The new design reduces production downtime by simplifying maintenance, making it possible for one person to carry out maintenance tasks.
A reduction in maintenance times by up to 70% can be realized. It is now possible to determine concrete maintenance intervals, so downtime becomes more plannable and less unexpected.
There are a number of design enhancements for reducing wear or simplifying maintenance:
