Eliminates Fines, Streamers and Tubing Wear from Resin Conveying
In resin conveying, conventional radius elbows are designed to “soften” the turn resin must take when changing direction. But traditional long or short radius bends, create undesirable friction from the high speed resin, creating heat, abrasion of the resin and the elbow, streamers and dust.
Available in stainless steel or aluminum, a Pellbow installed in place of conventional bends eliminates resin riding against the inside wall of a radius elbow. The results are a dramatic decrease in heat, dust, streamers and virtually no wearing of the elbow. By design, material flowing through the Pellbow accumulates in the pocket of the “impact zone” and moves gently upward and then out of the elbow. Material has no damage from impact.
Easily replaces traditional elbows
Pellbows are offered in a wide range tubing diameters to match your system needs perfectly. All sizes are available in aluminum and stainless steel. Selected sizes are available in cast ductile iron. For heavy duty applications, abrasive resistant alloy versions and coatings are available upon request.
Minimal pressure drop
Long radius sweeps are not required to keep your resin moving. The smooth operation of Pellbows allow them to replace any radius sweep with minimal change to conveying.
Convey and purge with confidence
Resin is efficiently conveyed through the Pellbow pocket and is also efficiently purged in systems equipped with line purging capability.
