A member of Starlinger Group The patented outlet device of the reactor is designed for consistent treatment time of the material in the reactor, preventing center flow of the pellets. AA level is reduced. Foreign particles, e.g. glycol, are extracted. VOCs are minimised or eliminated. The end product is approved for food contact applications. State-of-the-art Solid State Polycondensation for the IV increase of PET and PES pellets. Possible source material is regranulate from bottles, preforms, fibres, nonwovens, sheets and strapping. recoSTAR PET combined with viscoSTAR feature the following advantages: • Effective decontamination and adjustable IV increase under vacuum • FIFO principle • Equal residence time for each batch • Modular design for capacity increase • Energy saving in case of inline processing • Low transformation costs Technical data viscoSTAR Type 120 150 200 250 350 Max. output with pellets1 [kg/h] 1600 2000 2400 3200 3200 Effective volume of reactor [m³] 12 15 20 25 35 High-vacuum system [mbar] ≤10 Energy consumption [kWh/kg] approx. 0.06 – 0.15 iV increase [dl/g/h] 0.01 – 0.02 Food grade according to EFSA, FDA, brand owner approvals Dimensions Equipment height [m] 11.3 12.5 14.5 14.7 16.2 Floorspace [m] 8x8 11x9 1 6h residence time 1.
