3DC SLS Powder Recovery System
The 3DC SLS Powder Recovery system allows you to easily retrieve powder from your SLS 3D printer for reuse. With proper care, your SLS printer should be capable of reuse 99% of the powder not sintered with your parts!
The 3DC SLS Powder Recovery system works extremely well for cleaning out the build chamber, as well as capturing powder that was used for support.
The 3DC SLS Powder Recovery system consists of:
- Single-engine Vacuum (Stainless Steel, 4.5HP, 5 Gallon)
- High Efficiency Cyclone Separator + 10gal Steel Storage Drum
- Quick-Connect Tubing & Couplers
With these components, the system can break up clumps of powder back to their original size (appox 60microns), and prepare the material for reuse. To reuse powder, you simply need to do a final sieve of the powder & then remix per the manufacturer recommended blend.
For example, with the Sintratec PA12 and TPE powders, we recommend a mixture of 70% new powder and 30% used powder for each new printer refill.
