Recycling line
recoSTAR dynamic

State-of-the-art recycling technology with extended functionalities such as SMART feeder and dynamic automation package. Designed for processing film, fibres, thermoplastic in-house production scrap and washed post-consumer waste from materials such as PE, PP, PET, PES, PA, PLA, PS, PPS as well as foamed products. The most efficient solution for hygroscopic and wet materials.

The wear-resistant extruders are designed and manufactured in-house. The optional degassing extruder purifies the melt from volatile contaminants and monomers. Highly printed, very humid or organically contaminated input material requires the C-VAC module, hygroscopic input material the H-VAC module.

A melt filter continuously removes solid contaminants. The optional backflushing function reduces costs for filter screens and operator intervention. In case of higher contamination, a power backflush or continuous melt filter is recommended.

The pelletising system is chosen with regard to polymer type and preferred pellet shape. In case of an automatic strand pelletiser, broken strands are automatically inserted into the strand pelletiser without operator interference. Alternatively, manual strand, water ring, or underwater pelletisers are available.

SMART feeder

for ideal material preparation prior to extrusion through performing simultaneously the following steps:

S  → shrink & cut
M → mix & homogenize
A  → active feed & control
R → rotate & friction
T → temperature & dry
