Wet Pelletizer is successfully used for pelletization of carbon black powder also coming from recycle of exhausted tires.
Wet Pelletizer consists of a shell (mixing box) with jacket and mixing shaft with radially extending rows of pins on a helical pattern rotating inside the shell.
The numerous rods / pins extending outward from the mixing shaft maintains the clearance between the pin tip and inner casing.
The mixing shaft is driven by an electrical motor equipped with variable frequency drive and fluid coupling arrangement.
Process water and additive agent are added to carbon black powder inside the Wet Pelletizer.
The contents are mixed and agglomerated together by high rotation speed (up to 600 rpm) ready to be sent to rotary dryer where commercial carbon black pellets are obtained.
