The Mossi Ghisolfi Group, headquartered in Tortona, Italy, and one of the world’s largest PET producers, is building a new PET plant in Texas. Pelletron Corp. received an order for its PET pneumatic transfer system, consisting of the three process components Strandphase conveying, Pellbow pipe bends, and DeDuster for fines removal.
Besides the lower investment costs, pellcon3 provides savings due to its efficient energy consumption when compared to dense-phase conveying. Unlike dense-phase systems, pellcon3 does not create any dynamic forces, which results in lower building construction and silo costs.
The mechanical completion of the plant is planned for the third quarter of 2015.
