Starlinger recycling technology at the K 2010

Starlinger recycling technology

recycling technology, a division of Starlinger & Co GmbH, Vienna, will present a general view of its product portfolio at the K 2010 trade fair from October 27 to November 3 in Düsseldorf (booth D21, hall 9).

The product range of recycling technology comprises innovative machine solutions for efficient recycling of plastic materials such as PE, PP, PA, PS, PET and many others. At this year’s K trade fair, 3 Starlinger recycling lines will be on display.
A recoSTAR universal 65 VAC with an output of up to 200 kg/h will be in operation two times a day at booth D21, hall 9, processing PP sack fabric. This machine is equipped with a heavy-duty single-shaft cutter arranged parallel to the extruder, making it possible to easily process also films and hard-to-grind materials such as tapes, fibres and start-up lumps. Thanks to the new feeding system of the line both ground material and granulate can now be processed without requiring an additional dosing unit. Furthermore, this new feature increases operational reliability, simplifies operation and ensures lower energy consumption and higher output at the same time.

Large-scale trials have proven that the line concept is ideal for processing films, fibres, fabrics and non-wovens. Compared to other processes, the recoSTAR universal produces regranulate that is e.g. less discoloured and less degraded and thus has a higher value. In addition, materials with a moisture content of up to 3% can be processed using special devices.

For processing hygroscopic, wet and/or pre-ground materials as well as production waste, recoSTAR basic is the best choice. This line can be used for all polyolefines, technical plastics and foamed materials. It is equipped with an agglomerator for predrying and compacting the material. At booth B47 in hall 16 a recoSTAR basic 85 with an output of 450 kg/h will be in operation. This machine is connected directly to a film extrusion line (LLDPE stretch-wrap) and provides an example of Starlinger’s innovative in-line solutions at the highest level of automation.

The SSP (Solid State Polycondensation) reactor series has also been extended: It now includes a new reactor with an increased volume of 15,000 l and a solution for flakes only. This module, called deCON50, will be exhibited at booth D21, hall 9.

Whether films, fibres, filaments, non-wovens, tapes, sheets, moulded parts, PET preforms or bottles, or in-house, industrial or post-consumer waste: Starlinger recycling technology can choose from a wide spectrum of solutions for providing an optimum configuration for each application.
