BKG® Agglomerate Catcher

The BKG agglomerate catcher prevents pellet clusters or clumps (agglomerates) from entering the rotor area of the dryer. Agglomerates are captured by a series of inclined metal bars and automatically detected as they break the light beam of a photo-electric sensor. When the photo-eye detects an agglomerate, the agglomerate gate automatically opens and the oversized material is ejected upstream of the pellet dryer.
