Pelletizing Disc

The new Haver Pelletizing Disc efficiently converts wasteful fines into a transportable and marketable pelletized product. The fines are mixed inside the disc (up to 25 ft./7,500 mm in diameter) with a binder, such as bentonite, and an additive that adheres to the material. As the disc rotates at up to 10 rpm, the materials agglomerate into salable pellets consistently sized between 0.35 and 0.63 in. (9 and 16 mm) in diameter at up to 150 tph. According to W.S. Tyler, the Haver Pelletizing Disc minimizes recirculation loads typical of traditional pelletizing discs by up to 20 percent, and reduces energy costs up to 5 percent through its direct-drive technology. To achieve these large efficiency increases, the discs are engineered so operators can automatically adjust sidewall height between 22 and 35.4 in. (560 and 900 mm) during operation at a rate of 0.04 in. (1 mm) per second – a patented feature new to the industry. W.S. Tyler,
