Starlinger - Recycling Line recoSTAR universal

rECO recoSTAR® is a registered trademark of Starlinger & Co Gesellschaft m.b.H. We reserve the right to technical modifications. DPR-24831-09V Extruder screw and barrel are wear resistant, optionally ultra wear resistant. Easy maintenance is ensured by the large service opening; rotor and stator knife change is possible without moving the conveyor belt. Shredder design with curved pusher and increased buffer volume. Shredder bottom and dosing screw are opened hydraulically for easy access, allowing faster material and colour change-over. The innovative process adaption allows wide material variations. The load-controlled dosing screw ensures stable extruder feeding and perfect process stability. Exact cutting geometry with tight knife clearance and ideal stator/rotor knife arrangement ensures perfect material preparation. The slow-running rotor improves knife lifetime and overall reliability. Shredder rotor reverses automatically if required. Low noise and vibration levels are setting new standards. User-friendly control panel design, RFID chip operator identification, LED elements for intuitive operation, automatic start-up and stand-by, one-button start/stop, etc. Three-drive design ensures exact material dosing and output control. Versatility, accessibility and intelligence are the key highlights of the recoSTAR universal recycling line. New advanced features complement a well-proven technology. The rECO concept is an innovative approach that improves the energy efficiency of the recycling line. The overall energy consumption kW/kg is reduced by approx. 10 %. The benefit for the client is reduced costs, benefit for the environment is reduced carbon footprint. The rECO package includes amongst others:  New drive concept for the main extruder drive  Main motors IE3 standard  Free-angle cutting geometry for exact cutting and low energy consumption  Barrel heating  Energy recovery solutions are optionally available for various process steps. RECYCLING LINE recoSTAR universal for production and post-industrial scrap, integrated ACTIVE shredder for hard-to-grind materials, innovative process adaption, quick access for fast material changeover, easy maintenance, high performance design Feeding via cyclone in-line with production line, nip roll feeder and conveyor belt. Material can be fed into the hopper in all shapes without pre-cutting.

Strand pelletiser The ACTIVE shredder ensures perfect material preparation for high output through exact cutting geometry and double-coil rotor design. The loadcontrolled dosing screw allows stable extruder feeding even when the bulk density varies. Easy access and maintenance leads to high uptime and availability. A variety of melt filters for removing solid contaminants is available. The optional backflushing reduces costs for filter screens and operator intervention. In case of higher contamination a power backflushing or continuous filter is recommended. Compounding with powder, liquid or masterbatch allows to upcycle the plastic scrap. In-house masterbatch production with the Starlinger recoBATCH solution is possible. Consistent high pellet quality, up to 100% reuse in a variety of applications. The optional degassing extruder purifies the melt from volatile contamination and monomers. High-vacuum degassing for hygroscopic polymers is optionally available. Wear-resistant extruder design. The water ring pelletiser ensures exact cutting for high pellet quality and low operating costs. The remote control panel next to the pelletizer allows starting/ stopping of the line also from this position. Alternatively, a strand, automatic strand, or underwater pelletiser can be used.
