Angel Hair Traps

Angel Hair Traps

Angel hair traps are designed to trap “angel hair”, “streamers” or “snake skins” common in the conveying of plastic materials at the base of a silo or storage bin.
Two different styles are available – either Drawer or In-Line to fit your vacuum or pressure conveying systems needs.
The clear lid of the in-line unit allows the user to see when the trap is full and needs cleaning. Cleaning is simple, pull out the lid, and remove the angel hair.
Choose stainless steel for harder, more abrasive resins.
Choose aluminum construction for soft materials like PE.
