Gas control GC3000

By permanent measurement, the BritAS Gas Control GC3000 ensures the quality of the pellets during production.   The BritAS gas control detects first signs of foamed pellets and activates the deflector for second quality or waste if the parameters defined by the customer have not been reached. Without this control unit, there is a mixing of high-quality pellets already produced with low-quality waste.  

Test material
The BritAS gas control can be used for all types of polymer.    

Test categories
The advantage of this line is, that all parameters – also the number of deflectors – can freely be selected and defined by the customer. For example, the following categories are possible:

  • Quality goods – no gas inclusion
  • Quality goods, second quality – low gas inclusion
  • Waste – heavy gas inclusion 

Technical data  

  • Capacity: up to 3000 kg/h
  • Weight: approx. 800 kg
  • Dimensions: height of approx. 6 m
  • Connected load: 7.5 KW
  • Compressed air consumption: 15 l/h at 7-10 bar  

If desired, slight density fluctuations (slightly foamed melt) can positively be influenced by an automatic extruder-speed adjustment.
