Continuous high accuracy pelletizing can be simply achieved by assembling a VMI pelletizer cutter to a Shark or Combex extruder gear pump system. The volumetric operating gear pump in combination with the continuous rotating pelletizer knife provides high output accuracy. This results in very precise cut of rubber pellets. They can be used for feeding other extrusion systems for example.
Pelletizing is often one part of the total process. It can be combined with straining and blending, using VMI extruder gear pump systems.
