Coperion is to present its extended range of separators and elutriators for the cleaning and de-dusting of bulk materials at the International Plastics Fair in Dusseldorf.

The company will showcase the HFS horizontal fluidbed separator at the event.

These efficient, space-saving separators are also available for relatively low throughput rates upwards of approximately 800kg/hr.

They are therefore suitable for the cleaning of pellets and granules in the plastics processing industry.

The smallest module – an HFS 1.5 – will be shown on Coperion’s stand.

With the fluidbed separators it is possible to clean thoroughly and effectively even the most difficult of products, such as brittle, fragile or rubbery bulk materials.

The slow cleaning process protects the product and consumes only a minimum of air and energy.

They are suitable for use not only in plastics processing installations but also in food processing applications and in other areas of application where the purity of the product is decisive for the manufacturing process, further processing or the quality of the end product.

The HFS horizontal fluidbed separators have been designed to meet customers’ ever growing demands for better dust removal, even in cases of application involving relatively small throughputs, while still satisfying high demands in terms of economic efficiency and quality of cleaning.

Horizontal separation permits as low an installation height as possible, the minimum being 500mm.

The dosing unit is integrated into the separator, saving not only installation height but also the additional costs to the customer of providing his own dosing units on site.

Therefore the HFS separators are suitable for retrofitting in existing installations.

They can be typically installed underneath silos in feed systems supplying pellets to injection moulding machines or extruders, or downstream between compounding extruders and bagging units.

The horizontal fluidbed separators do not contain any moving parts and can also be cleaned readily and quickly.

As the inlets and outlets are pressure-less, the HFS separators are also suitable for use in totally enclosed systems in the food industry, for example.
