Machinery for storage of granulated or powdered plastics

For all industries that need machinery for the storage of granulated or powdered plastics, Prillwitz designs and manufactures modern storage systems that include fluidizing mechanisms and discharge of the stored product.

Our silos and hoppers are used to store all types of plastics, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, polycarbonates, vinyl polychloride and polystyrene.

Prillwitz also manufactures air or pneumatic conveying systems. For mechanical conveying, Prillwitz supplies HSF screw conveyors. We also supply all the necessary equipment for bagging and packaging of granulates, filling of big bags using PNBP and EBA bagging machines.

As in other industries that handle powders and granules, air suction and filtering systems are critical in the plastics industry. In this respect, the cyclones, HDF bag filters and low-pressure fans that Prillwitz manufactures meet the highest quality standards.
