Mars Mineral is a pioneer in the design and manufacture of equipment & systems that pelletize virgin carbon black or carbon black powder recovered from ELT tires through pyrolysis. Customers worldwide use our quality pelletizing systems to convert carbon black powder into pellets. We can produce carbon black pellets in the size range from 0.125 to 2mm in diameter at production rates ranging from 0.15 to 40m 3/hr.
Mars Mineral pelletizing systems are being used worldwide to transform carbon black powder recovered from waste tires into a valuable product used in asphalt additives, automotive hoses & belts, computer & mobile phone casings, green tires, paints, and printing inks & toners.
We also help customers turn ASTM-grade carbon black powder into pellets used as a tinting agent, strength additive or UV protectant for aerospace, appliance, electronics, furniture, industrial, marine and packaging applications.
In addition to serving customers in the carbon black market, we work with companies in the steel, foundry, chemical, mining, cement, lime and fertilizer, and consumer products manufacturing sectors.
Mars Mineral maintains a complete testing laboratory facility that is equipped to pelletize materials from a few pounds sample through a few tons. The test equipment ranges from bench scale through pilot scale sizes.
Mars Mineral manufactures its own pelletizing equipment and related components in our 50,000-sq.-ft. factory. This enables complete control over the quality of our equipment, including pin agglomerators, disc pelletizers and deep drum pelletizers.
We’re based in Mars, Pennsylvania, about 20 miles (35km) from Pittsburgh.
We design and manufacture agitation agglomeration equipment that pelletizes recovered carbon black (rCB) from tire char.
Mars Mineral pelletizing systems can help you form high quality pellets from ASTM-grade carbon black powder for the production of asphalt additives, computer & mobile phone casings, green tires, paints, printing inks & toners, and automotive hoses & belts, dashboards, door panels, hoods, rocker panels, spoilers and trunks.
As a pioneer in the design and manufacture of agitation pelletizing systems that convert fines, dusts and powders into pellets, our carbon black processing systems may be customized to form pellets from 0.125 to 2mm in diameter at production rates ranging from 0.15 to 40m 3/hr.
A Mars Mineral Pelletizing System allows you to generate significant new revenue from a waste material in five easy steps.
The Pin Mixer receives carbon black powder from the storage bin and feeder and mixes the material with binder, typically water, before sending it to the dryer.
The Dryer dries and cools the pellets, discharging them onto a conveyor belt that carries them to the Screen
The Screen removes and recycles oversized and undersized pellets, sending the “good” ones to the pellet storage bin, located outside the building
The Bagger takes the pellets from the pellet storage bin and automatically fills a FIBC or other package.
The Palletizer & Stretch Wrapper arrange the filled bags on pallets, stacking them for shipment and stretch-wrapping them to the pallet for stability in transport.
With a Mars Mineral Pelletizing System, you’re helping to reduce environmental and public health problems by re-using some of the 1 billion tires worldwide that are scrapped each year.
Go green and reduce production costs by using high quality carbon black recovered from scrap tires processed by thermal depolymerization.
Our pelletizing systems include pin agglomerators and disc pelletizers or deep drum pelletizers that can help you form high quality pellets from ASTM-grade carbon black powder for the production of:
Pelletized carbon black is also useful as a tinting agent, strength additive or UV protectant for products used in these markets:
Let us show you how our customized solutions can generate new business opportunities.
We maintain a laboratory and pilot scale testing facility to process materials for determining their pelletability.
