Vibrating plastic pellet classifiers from process equipment manufacturer The Witte Co., Washington, New Jersey, feature connected 'fines' and 'overs' discharge chutes as an option to direct undersized and oversized pellets into a single chute.

The connected reject chutes combine all off-spec plastic material in a single location for easy, efficient collection and return to the extruder infeed for reprocessing, while the separated on-spec plastic material is gently advanced for packaging or processing.

Ideal for custom compounders, toll processors and other plastics material manufacturers, the connected fines and overs discharge chutes are suitable for specification on the entire line of Witte vibratory plastic pellet classifiers, and may also be retrofit onto classifiers in the field.

Videos featuring the Witte classifiers in action are shown for free on the company's website.
