Vortex Global Expands Product Catalog with Addition of Angel Hair Traps

Angel Hair Traps
20 Jun 2024  |
Vortex Global, a leader in the design and manufacture of components for dry bulk material handling, is excited to announce the addition of Angel Hair Traps to its comprehensive catalog of equipment. This innovative solution is specifically designed to address and mitigate common production issues in the plastic industry.

The Vortex® Angel Hair Trap has been developed to capture long, thin strands of plastic material—commonly known as “angel hair,” “streamers,” or “snake skins”—that form during the processing of plastic pellets. These strands can cause significant production challenges, including clogging filters and processing lines, reducing material flow rates, and contaminating final products. By effectively capturing angel hair, these traps help ensure smooth operation, protect equipment, and improve overall product quality.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Prevents Production Problems: These traps capture angel hair before it causes issues, ensuring smooth operation of plastic processing equipment and improving overall production efficiency.
  • Protects Equipment: By preventing clogs and damage to filters, screens, and other equipment, Angel Hair Traps help extend the lifespan of critical processing machinery.
  • Improves Product Quality: By removing angel hair from the material stream, these traps help ensure that the final plastic product is free of defects and meets high-quality standards.
  • Ease of Installation and Maintenance: Angel Hair Traps are designed for easy installation and maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution for plastic manufacturers.

Vortex Global has been a trusted partner since 1977, serving industries such as agriculture, chemical, food, milling, mineral, pet food, plastics, and rubber. The company prides itself on continuous innovation, superior customer service, and a commitment to sustainability. The addition of Angel Hair Traps to Vortex’s product lineup underscores the company’s dedication to providing efficient and reliable solutions tailored to the specific needs of its diverse clientele.
