How Bonnot custom machinery provides continuous catalyst production without loss of quality, stability or character….
Bonnot Catalyst Extruders and Feeders, both with automated controls, work in tandem to ensure continuous pelletizing in varied configurations as small as 1/32” diameter. The batch may go directly from the mixer to feeder where consistency is maintained by continuous screw rotation.
Handles all types of catalytic materials including high aluminas, kaolin carriers, gels, and molecular sieves. The auger and barrel can be water cooled. Configuration and size of pellets are controlled by die change.
Bonnot Catalyst Feeder
Two continuous or variable speed rotating screws move material to vertical feed. Automatic level control prevents back up and bridging.
Bonnot Catalyst Extruder Models
1” Catalyst Extruder (Benchtop)
Amazingly simple yet unerringly precise. The 1” Catalyst Extruder provides precise control and data collection capabilities for small batch, bench top testing, and formulation work. Various auger and barrel designs are available; along with virtually any die plate configuration.
2.25” Catalyst Extruder
Approximate capacity is one pound per minute (material dependent). Requires a minimum of three pounds of sample for a test run. Capable of processing around 100 – 150 pounds per hour (depending on specific material). Ideal for table mount in the lab or a mini-pilot production. Various auger and barrel designs are available; along with virtually any die plate configuration.
4”, 6”, 8” Catalyst Extruder
These sized extruders are typically used when high volume production is required. Capacities range from 100 – 4,000 pounds per hour (material dependent) with 15 – 150 HP motors depending on the material. (Bonnot Extruder sizes are identified by the auger diameter)
In addition to our time-tested standard catalyst machery, we offer customization services that help you create a machine to meet your needs without sacrificing any of the particulars. For over 125 years, our talented design and engineering teams have demonstrated that Bonnot is the best.
