DRI-AIR Continuous PET Crystallizer System

 CCR Series: 4.5 to 182 cu. ft. (127-5180 liters) 

 CCR Crystallizers provide trouble-free conversion of amorphous PET resin into a crystallized form, in preparation for drying. 

 CCR systems are designed to provide constant temperature hot air at the rate of up to 1 cfm/lb./hr. (.77m3/kg/ hr.) Typical process temperatures range between 250-350°F. (121-177°C) and residence time is typically one hour.

 Continuous PET Crystallizer System 

CCR systems are designed to provide constant temperature hot air at the rate of up to 1 cfm/lb./hr. (.77m3/kg/ hr.) Typical process temperatures range between 250-350°F. (121-177°C) and residence time is typically one hour. 

Reliable Material Flow A robust agitating hopper, direct-coupled to a gear reduced drive motor assures reliable material flow through the crystallization process while specially outfitted material supply and take away components assure continuous operation. 

Electric Heater/Blower The frame mounted agitating hopper is fitted with a hopper-mounted heater/blower module. 

Gas-Fired Process Heater Option This popular option can reduce energy savings by 20-40%. 

Clean Operation System includes a separate cyclone filter that traps and collects carry-over fines for a clean operation. 

Bridging & Agglomeration Prevention Large automatic knife gate eliminates bridging of regrind or flake and prevents agglomeration of amorphous material in vacuum receiver due to hot air exposure from crystallizer. 

Hinged Hopper Door with Safety Interlock Stops agitator to avoid accidental injury. 

NovaTouch™ PLC Control in NEMA 12 Enclosure Built-in interface with all common control systems. 

Plus: 

  • Stainless steel vacuum receiver 
  • Multiple sight glasses on hopper 
  • Air inlet, outlet and hopper temperature sensors 
  • Rotary airlock on hopper discharge 
  • Enclosed surge bin with take-off box 
  • High and low material level sensors automatically prevent over-filling of crystallizer and indicate low material level 
  • 3” of energy-saving insulation surround the lid, upper body and cone of the Hopper 
  • 460V/3ph/60Hz 
  • 1-Year warranty
