For cleaning or dedusting of plastic regrind to be re-used in the production line.
The Kongskilde KIA 12, KIA 20 and KIA 60 Aspirators are designed to separate light impurities or dust from re-processed material or granulated plastic. The aspirator is suitable for applications where the presence of dust or label fragments can be expected, for example in connection with PET-bottle re-processing.
The Kongskilde KIA Aspirator System
The Kongskilde Industrial Aspirator (KIA) is designed to separate light impurities or dust from re-processed material or granulated plastic.
An installation containing a KIA Aspirator results in reduced demand for raw materials as well as a drastic reduction in the quantity of waste material. The KIA is suitable for applications where the presence of dust or label fragments can be expected, for example in connection with PET bottle re-processing.
Pneumatic technology has become a benchmark in PET bottle re-processing with many companies worldwide using it as their preferred method of removing label fragments after initial size reduction. This cost-effective and low-maintenance system offers a payback in a relatively short period of time.
- Capable of cleaning both shredded and granulated plastic.
- Ideally suited for use with in-house recycling or at a materials recycling facility.
- Automatic loading is possible using Kongskilde pneumatic conveying technology.
- A variable speed electric motor can be supplied as extra equipment for KIA 20 and KIA 60 to drive the distributor impeller.
How it works
Principle of Function
The re-processed material falls through an upward-moving air stream generated by a blower that is mounted on the KIA. The lighter impurities are separated by the air stream through the blower and conveyed through a pipe system into a cyclone or a container, while the reprocessed material falls through the bottom of the Aspirator.
A rotating distributor fan in the bottom part of the Aspirator ensures that the material is evenly distributed in the air stream. This provides maximum cleaning efficiency.
If material is granulated and then processed through a Kongskilde Aspirator where the lighter impurities can be removed, the re-processed material will be ready for immediate re-use.
