Product category: Pelletizers

ECON Underwater Pelletizer, EUP

ECON is the leading provider of underwater pelletizing technology with thermally insulated die plates. The die plate is fixed on the heated carrier body. The thermal insulation ensures that the melt in the die holes will not "freeze". ECON pelletizers are not sensitive to fluctuations in output, thus making the pelletizing process extremely reliable and guaranteeing high operating efficiency.

In addition, the compactly and clearly designed ECON water treatment and drying system is an effective solution for drying the pellets. The continuous filtration of process water ensures low maintenance requirements. Because the pellet dryer is easily accessible and free of dead spots, material or color changes can be done quickly. The complete pelletizing line can be easily adapted to different production conditions, thus increasing your flexibility.

ECON Air Pelletizing System, ELG

The ECON air pelletizer was especially developed for processing wood and natural fiber compounds (such as WPC). Because water is used to cool and convey the pellets, processing wood-plastic compounds in an underwater pelletizing system requires a substantial amout of drying. Common drying methods are often unable to attain satisfactory levels of residual humidity.

The air pelletizer was designed to use air to cool and convey the pellets and thus eliminate any need to dry the pellets. At the same time, the system benefits from the thermal insulation, resulting in a uniform cut and easy conveying of the pellets from the "cool" cutting surface, without generating chains or agglomerates.

Among natural fiber compounds, the ECON air pelletizer is also well suited for processing PVC, which has a low inner specific heat, therefore requiring only minimal cooling.

The air pelletizer can also be combined with the ECON underwater pelletizing system. With only a few modifications, one system can be used for both underwater and air pelletizing.

Product category: Screen changers

ECON Discontinuous Screen Changer, ESD

With discontinuous screen changers, the screens are changed when the machine is stopped. The piston carrying the screen is moved out and the screen pack is switched.

approx. 65 % effective screen area for higher throughput
flow-optimized design of the melt channels
extremely low pressure build up protects material and screens
no dead spots for faster material changes

ECON Continuous Screen Changer with Backflush System, ESK B

The continuous double-piston screen changers with backflush system provide major advantages with their fully automatic cleaning of the screens as soon as a defined maximum pressure is met.

all thermoplastic materials can be processed
optimal design of the melt flow way - short melt residence time
low pressure build up - to prevent thermal variations of the melt
no dead spots for fast changes of material or color
approx. 75 % effective screen area

ECON Pyrolysis Furnace, EPO

The ECON pyrolysis furnace was developed for environmentally friendly and gentle cleaning of extrusion and filter parts. Thermoplastics and mixed plastics are removed under vacuum without any cleansing agent at a variable working temperature. Sensitive parts are protected due to the precision setting of the temperature. Your advantage: fast, cost-effective and residue-free cleaning for an extended lifetime.

gentle removal of thermoplastic materials and mixed plastics
extended lifetime of tools and filter parts
environmental safety, TÜV-certificate
easy handling and highest reliability
low-maintenance, oil lubricated vacuum pump
no process water necessary
no emissions because of activated carbon filter

Product category: Driers for bulk materials

ECON Pellet Dryer, S+L

ECON's pellet dryers, S+L, can be combined with the ECON water treatment and drying system, but they are also suitable for stand-alone operation. These dryers are often used in the recycling industry to dry bulk or mill material or flakes. These centrifugal dryers are characterized by their compact design and sturdy construction. Depending on the temperature, size and structure of the material to be dried, residual humidities between 0.1 and 0.5 % can be attained.

compact design and sturdy construction
high throughput
gearless drive for maintenance-free operation
