Complete repelletizing systems and continuous densifers for in-house, post-industrial or post-consumer plastics recycling. Patented warm-feed system predensifies, size reduces and prewarms scrap before it enters the extruder. This minimizes heat history, resulting in low-material degradation. Recycling systems include automatic back-flushing screen changers or continuous laser filter systems, depending on the type and amount of contamination in the scrap.
Vacurema PET recycling systems produce BTB pellets, sheet or strapping.
Systems available for PE, PP, PA, PET and most other thermoplastics at rates from 50 to 5000 lb/hr.
New developments combine recycling and compounding in one step. Plenty of news at K in size reduction and de-labeling.
Erema in Austria has a new system that combines recycling and compounding in a single step.
This year, leading film processor and bagmaker Hilex company reprocessed 25 million lb of post-consumer material in its Bag2Bag recycling program.
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.
Most of the news to be found at NPE in post-consumer recycling comes from Europe and concerns direct recycling of PET flake into sheet without repelletizing.
Processors making PLA film and sheet, especially oriented PLA, have kept mum about how they reprocess their scrap.
