Description

Standard Operating Procedure (PDF)

The Rieter Primo 60-E strand pelletizer is designed to cut and reduce extruded polymers into pellet-size materials. Use of this pelletizer is highly intended for laboratories and small runs. The typical characteristic is the cantilever bearing of all elements in the cutting chamber. These are easily accessible for maintenance, adjustment and cleaning. Benefits of this pelletizer include the shortest possible unguided section from the feeding unit to the cutting unit, single-sided bearing of the cutting rotor; ability for a quick exchange of tools and rollers, and a suitable configuration for soft, brittle and abrasive polymers.
