Plastic & Rubber
Plastic and rubber have completely changed the world, and make up products that people use constantly. The production of plastic and rubber requires exact temperatures and moisture levels to ensure quality and reduce the rate of defects and issues. High quality custom processing and drying equipment from Carrier Vibrating Equipment is built to meet the specific needs of each production line.
Carrier has experience with drying and processing plastics including acrylic, PET, polyurethane, poly-carbonate, nylon, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, and PVC, as well as various crumb rubbers.
Vibrating fluid bed dryers are ideal for processing temperature-sensitive plastics and rubber, since the product is continually mixed to promote a uniform drying. The size and length of the fluid bed can be engineered to control the moisture level and temperature to reach the required levels.
Spiral elevators are ideal for cooling or processing plastic and rubber in a small footprint, and the constant motion of the product means there will be no clumping or uneven drying and cooling that would be found in a conveyor belt or bucket elevator.
Vibrating conveyors are able to eliminate bed matting through the vibration angle of attack, and can be made with non-stick coatings to keep rubber and plastic from sticking and keeping equipment clean between batches. Custom conveyors are able to perform processing such as quenching, dewatering, screening, spray washing, cooling, drying, distributing, and feeding.
