Pre-Treatment Process for Food-Grade PET Sheet

Facebook Share Icon LinkedIn Share Icon Twitter Share Icon Share by EMail icon Print Icon

Device teams with twin-screw extruder to purify recycled PET flake for food-contact applications.

The PURe system from Bandera is a pre-treatment process that purifies rPET flake for food-contact applications. It uses microwave generators to treat the flake for its cleaning process. Cycle times are approximately 30–45 min. PURe is a dual-reactor process that cycles between the reactors in a semi-continuous manner. The treated flake is then ready for processing into sheet through the HVTSE twin screw process.

There are multiple sizes available ranging from 1100 lb/hr thru 4400+ lb/hr.

In North America, the technology is available through Processing Technologies International LLC.
