filtec pelletizing systems

Filtec is a family business company established in 1993 by members of the Baracco family who are even today owner of the main share of the company. The owners are technicians with experience and skills in field of the production of cutting systems. Filtec is specialized in the production of Water Ring Pelletizer and Underwater Pelletizer.

The Filtec customers can discuss with Filtec of whatsoever subject, problem or proposal. Each and every pelletizer is “custom made” and many are also “very special”.

Filtec works in the field of plastic machinery only. Filtec gives utmost attention on everything related to the filtering and pelletizing machines requested by the market more and more customized and special. Filtering and pelletizing cannot be described  the Filtec “core business”, as they are the sole and only Filtec field of action.

It is almost impossible to find other companies with the same range of pelletizers offered by Filtec. And Filtec has different pelletizers for different plastic materials, hourly throughputs and kind of extruders.

Filtec gives utmost attention on everything related to the filtering and pelletizing machines requested by the market more and more customized and special. The corporate structure is very flexible in order to grant “tailor made” solutions and quick proper answers. The company can offer a complete range of pelletizers:

  • GRO type Water Ring Pelletizers for “easy” materials and reclaiming;
  • GRO/A type Water Ring Pelletizers with water or air for water-sensitive materials that must be cut in air only;
  • UW type Underwater Pelletizers for fluid, difficult or temperature-sensitive materials

The range of machinery is not limited to pelletizers but includes vertical or horizontal drying centrifuges, vented vibrating screens for pellets cooling, filtering and cooling systems for process water, screenchangers for molten materials.

The production process begins from the feasibility study and the development of different solutions able to satisfy any specific request of any customer arriving to the production and the delivery of the final product and a prompt and effective after-sale service.

Some materials are water-sensitive and can be damaged at its contact so must be pelletized in air only. The Filtec air-pelletizers are suitable for compounds of plastic materials and wood powders. Such compounds are more and more used in the building and furniture industries.

And then other special pelletizers are conceived for masterbatches and materials too brittle to be dried by a vertical centrifuge. In the centrifuge the pellets of too brittle materials may break and become powder. In the same way, the pellets of “soft” materials may smear as gel. For such cases, Filtec produces special vented vibrating screens.

For highly filled or pressure-sensitive materials, Filtec produces a special line of pelletizers with flywheel and direct flow granting a minimal distance between extruder and die plate with a very low pressure loss.

Filtec is very proud of its range of machinery. When a plastic material can be pelletized, for sure Filtec has the most suitable pelletizer.
