Strand Pelletizing PTC Maag Germany

Strand Pelletizing PTC (Pelletizing Training Course) 2024

“Simply” good cylindrical pellets

Our Strand Pelletizing PTC is organized as a holistic two-day training course around strand pelletizing and is addressed to compounder, recycler and masterbatch-industry. After a review of the complete pelletizing components and drying technology, description of multifarious optimization potentiality at the units follows. Theoretic basics will be supplemented by practical advices. Examples for optimization will be shown and discussed. The compiled results should be reflected by the participants at their own lines later. The face-to-face contact should provide faster support at later requests and/or problems.
