SP Industries single-cylinder Precrusher Series

Hopkins, Michigan-based SP Industries has introduced the PC-3001, PC-4001 and PC-6001 Precrusher Series for manufacturing and processing facilities that don’t require the heavy-duty compacting equipment the company offers.

The series:

  • is designed for lower-volume industrial and smaller product destruction applications
  • can program up to eight precrush cycles to enable maximum breakdown of materials that are difficult to compact
  • is offered with 3-, 4- or 6-cubic-yard capacities
  • can be operated in either precrusher or compactor-only mode

Herbold HVT series centrifugal dryers

HVT series centrifugal dryers from Herbold USA, Smithfield, Rhode Island, provide energy-saving drying of regrind, especially hollow bodies, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, polyolefins and other plastics, the company says. The HVT series:

  • features a vertical rotor shaft, which ensures longer dwell time in the drying chamber
  • operates on the principle of centrifugal drying, where material is accelerated against a screened stator surface and simultaneously transported from bottom to top by rotor paddles
  • is fed via a horizontal drainage screw, which eliminates most of the surface moisture before material enters the dryer
