Increasing Throughput of Your Plastics/Polymer Plants

  • This event has passed.

While the times are challenging now, low prices of oil and gas have provided an opportunity for the US plastics/polymer industry.  Cheap feedstock can improve margins for the US plastics production, and many plants are likely to increase their throughput. Trying to get more solids to flow through the existing handling system may not be always an easy task.   It will be advantageous to have an idea of what solids handling issues may occur when production rate is increased and how to diagnose, prevent or alleviate them. Our webinar will arm you with this knowledge so that you are a step ahead of any potential flow issues with your fluff, powder and pellets.

This webinar will provide:

  • Insights into critical solids flow issues associated with purge columns/degassers
  • Insights into common flow problems with extruder feed hoppers
  • Discussion of common issues with additive handling system
  • Quick overview of pneumatic conveying system
