Hi, sorry if this is already covered but i can really find it…  nor get my head around it. So my goal is to end up with pellets, not flakes. The pellets doesnt need to be perfect. By pellets i mean 3-5mm cylindrical shapes. What ive been drawing on is: 1. First shred plastic in shredder. 2. Wash shredded plastic (as flakes)  in ultrasound washer 3.  Feed flakes in to extruder 4. In the end of the extruder have a rotating blade which cuts the plastic in to smaller cylindric shapes. Is this the best way of doing it, are there any other better ways to do it? If this is the solution, would the plastic have to be cooled down before cut in to smaller bits?  How to cool it, by fans or by water bath? Kindest
