recoSTAR dynamic 18 17 19 16 20 18 17 19 16 20 18 17 19 16 20 The SMART feeder optimally prepares the input material and feeds it into the extruder by centrifugal force. The dynamic automation package regulates the ideal operation point. Automatic speed adjustment of rotating disc and positioning of load- controlled intake slider leads to increased output. Higher levels of humidity can be processed. Wear-resistant Extruders are designed and manufac- tured in-house. The optional degassing extruder purifies the melt from volatile con- tamination and monomers. For highly printed, very humid, hygroscopic and / or organically contaminated input material high-vacuum degassing and C-VAC modu- les are available. Melt filters for continuous removal of solid contaminants are available. The optional backflushing function reduces costs for filter screens and operator intervention. In case of higher contamina- tion, a power backflushing or continuous melt filter is recommended. The pelletising solutions are chosen depending on polymer type and preferred pellet shape. In case of automatic strand pelletising, broken strands are automati- cally inserted into the strand pelletiser without operator interference. Alternatively, manual strand, water ring, or underwater pelletising are available. The high pellet quality ensures the production of an end-product with the characteristics of the original product. Up to 100 % reuse is possible. Additives can be added to increase the possi- bilities of reuse by adjusting pellet characteristics. 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.
