Repor Air cooled recycling machine

POLYSTAR’s Repro-Air recycling machine is an extremely compact and economic recycling solution for HDPE and LDPE film producers. It is especially suitable for producers who are in need of less installation space and operation cost. POLYSTAR’s Repro-Air recycling system enables film producers to reprocess HDPE and LDPE film scraps, start-up or changeover film rolls (film-on-roll) without the need for pre-cutting, edge-trim waste, T-shirt bag bundles (cut- offs) from in-house production. Lightly printed film can also be recycled into high quality, uniformed pellets. In addition, low maintenance requirement and processing stability is the core advantage of new Repro-Air machine. POLYSTAR will demonstrate this economic Repro-Air recycling machine at Taipeiplas 2016.

1.Saving space and water
The space-saving recycling machine Repro-Air (economic type - RP120) has an average output of 30~80kg per hour, 800~1000kg per day. Through the nip roll feeder, the recycling machine can process multiple film rolls simultaneously. T-shirt bag bundles (cut-offs) from bag making process can also be thrown directly into the recycling machine without the need for pre-crushing.

This air-cooled plastic recycling line does not require any water consumption and takes up very little space, it can fit right next to or in between blown film machines. The pellets produced by the hot die face pelletizer are 100% dry and can be put directly back into the production line for immediate reprocessing. This plastic recycling machine is highly recommended for packaging film producers of different types of film and bags, such as flat bags, commercial bags, garbage bags, food packaging film, shrink film and many others.

After the hot die-face cutting, the air-cooled pellets are transported into a spiral device for further pellet cooling and separation. This special design allows the machine to effectively pelletize HDPE and LDPE with minimal material degradation. 

2. Reducing production cost

The film producer is now able to recycle almost all of its production waste to make high quality pellets, from HDPE film scraps to LDPE film-on-roll– and considerably increase the percentage of recycled pellets in the end product (film). The Repro-Air provides film producers with higher production efficiency and higher film waste converting rate – a higher percentage of recycled pellets can be put back into the production line.

 
POLYSTAR continues to re-engineer its recycling machines in every small detail to improve the machine user-friendliness and at the same time meeting the customer’s requirements. “ Simple in design, Flexible in operation” has always been the core value for POLYSTAR, providing the simplest and easy operation recycling systems to customers worldwide.

Repro Print Two stage recycling machine

POLYSTAR’s re-engineered “Repro-Print” two stage recycling machine is designed specifically for reprocessing heavily printed film waste. It is capable of processing fully printed PE, PP and BOPP film waste with printed percentage up to 95% on the film surface. With the improved cutter compactor and high efficiency filtration & degassing technology, a very high percentage of the recycled pellets can be put back into film extrusion or injection lines for reprocessing. This particular waste recycling system allows plastic producers to reduce cost of raw material and making recycled pellets from heavily printed material highly reusable.

Since 2014, POLYSTAR has successfully installed more than 50 “ Repro-Print” two stage recycling machine throughout the world; in particular in food and commercial packaging sector. In addition to processing heavily printed film waste, the machine can also process non-printed or lightly printed film without significant change in material property. PP raffia, woven bags and pre-washed film flakes can also be processed with the same machine.

The main advantage of the new “ Repro-Print” two stage recycling machine are:

1.       Improved cutter compactor design for faster and more stable material feeding

-          The improved temperature control mechanism for the cutter compactor ensures that thermal sensitive material (especially heavily printed PP and BOPP) does not melt inside the compactor and creates problems for feeding. 

 
2.      Triple degassing  

-          In addition to the double degassing design in the first extruder, the venting area (the connection between the first and second extruder) is added as a third degassing section to further thoroughly remove the gas of the heavily printed material. This effectively solves the problem of insufficient degassing in a typical recycling line and ensuring that the pellets are properly degassed, and not allow in the middle and fluffy on the outside.

 
3.      Re-position of the filtration system

-          The re-positioning of filtration before degassing on the extruder ensures a superior degassing effect and eliminates the problem of material blockage at the venting area when processing film waste with excessive print.

Cutter compactor plastic recycling machine

POLYSTAR's high efficiency, one-step cutter compactor plastic recycling machine Repro-Flex is designed for the reprocessing of PE polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed. This cutter integrated pelletizing system eliminates the need of pre-cutting the material, requires less space and energy consumption while producing high quality plastic pellets at a productive rate.

In addition to in-house (post-industrial) film waste, the system is also able to process washed flakes, scraps and regrind (pre-crushed rigid plastic waste from injection and extrusion). This equipment is highly recommended for packaging film producers of commercial bags, garbage bags, agricultural films, food packaging, shrink and stretch films, as well as producers in the woven industry of PP woven bags, jumbo bags, tapes and yarns. Other types of material such as PS sheet, PE and PS foam, PE net, EVA, PP mixed with PU are also applicable on this machine.

One Step, All-in-One direct recycling:

The Repro-Flex cutter compactor plastic recycling machine combines cutting, extrusion and pelletizing into one compact and efficient recycling line. The cutter compactor of the recycling machine prepares (pre-conditions) the material into an ideal condition for the extrusion process and feed the material directly into the extruder with a centrifugal force. Comparing to the conventional recycling machines, this integrated system does not require a separate crusher, eliminates the problem of inconsistent feeding (over-feeding or insufficient feeding)

Easy material feeding without the need for pre-cutting

The waste material enters the machine from the belt conveyor (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and the nip roll feeder (for complete film rolls) at the same time. An extra silo tank can also be added to store and feed pre-washed film flakes. The feeding is controlled automatically based on how full the cutter compactor is. The cutter compactor then cuts, dries and compacts the material into a semi-molten condition (just below the agglomeration point), which is optimal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutter compactor then feeds the material directly and consistently into the extruder screw

Higher output capacity:

The integration of the cutter compactor and extruder ensures extremely fast and stable feeding, the tangentially connected extruder is continuously filled with pre-compacted material. This results in a much higher production output comparing to other types of recycling systems on the market

Higher pellets quality: 

The stable material feeding together with the hot die face pelletizer produce round-shaped, uniformed size pellets that are higher in value and optimal for reproduction (extrusion processes).

Repro One Shredder integrated recycling machine

POLYSTAR’s latest Repro-One recycling technology has an integration of a heavy-duty single shaft shredder that is directly connected with the extruder pelletizer. The one-step recycling technology allows plastic processors to recycle both soft and rigid plastic wastes in one machine, which produces superior quality of recycled pellets.

The recycling machine is ideal for PP raffia/PP non-woven, PE film manufacturer who process their rejected raffia waste (tapes, fabric, jumbo big bags, lumps, blown film start-up waste) generated from in-house production. The recycled pellets can be put directly back into tape extrusion lines or blown/cast film lines for immediate reprocessing. These recycled pellets can be loaded in high percentages and still produce excellent fabric with good tensile strength and elongation.

In POLYSTAR’ Repro-One, plastic scrap is processed by a single shaft shredder for initial size reduction. The precisely controlled ram inside the shredder continuously pushes the bulky material towards the rotating shredder. After shredding, the material is fed directly into the extruder. The material feeding is auto-controlled by the hydraulic force. The material then goes through degassing (if the material is printed) and filtered before the die face pelletizing process. The integrated shredder can effectively process large-sized waste such as jumbo bags, raffia, tape, rope, lumps from extrusion start-up, woven and nonwoven, without pre-shredding in advance. 
 

This eliminates the need of pre-cutting/pre-shredding large-sized, thick or bulky waste (including hard plastics), feeding the waste directly from the shredder into the extruder at a very fast and constant rate without over-heating the material. This technology ensures continuous and uniform feeding to the extruder that produces high quality recycled pellets.
 

The flexibility of the Repro-One allows raffia and film producers to reprocess their in-house production waste easily in a single machine. The high quality pellets with minimal material degradation can be reused 100% in reprocessing which reduces cost significantly for the producers.

Moreover, higher efficiency in recycling is also ECO- friendly to the green environment protection.

Twin Head Blown Film Machine

POLYSTAR has installed more than 300 sets of its twin head blown film machines in many leading T-shirt bag makers' factory in many countries.

Normally when producing film rolls for T-shirt bag conversion which ranges from 300~700mm in width, it is difficult to achieve higher output by using a bigger extruder for such small film width unless the blown film extruder is equipped with an internal bubble cooling.

The twin head blown film machine offers an economic alternative and has a much faster return on investment comparing to a blown film machine installed with internal bubble cooling system (IBC). In the twin head blown film machines, 1 die head can reach much higher output with a bigger extruder (such as 65mm or 75mm in diameter) even when producing smaller width film. It is especially effective for T-shirt bag makers who are looking for machine with higher output but lower cost.

Comparing to extruders with a single die head, the twin die extruders can achieve higher production capacity when producing film roll that are small in width, as the high extrusion output is dispersed into two separate channels of the die heads instead of one.

Polystar designs and customizes this type of twin head blown film machine with different screw diameter and roller width depending on the customers’ requirement. Available in screw diameter of 55mm, 60mm, 65mm and 75mm and film width from 400mm up to 1000mm on each winder. The double head blown film machine also allows producers to switch between HDPE and LDPE production as well as producing different film width on the same machine on each winder simultaneously.

A special screw design is used to provide good mixing and stable output for both HDPE and LDPE material. Bimetallic treatment is applied to process a higher percentage of recycled material and CaCO3 compound. Polystar uses Siemens/ABB energy saving motors for the extruders which can reduce energy consumption up to 5%.

Polystar has installed more than 200 sets of the double-head blown film machine in Latin American in more than 15 countries throughout Central and South America.

Three layer ABA blown film machine

In some markets such as Turkey, Thailand and Vietnam where T-shirt bag production has become extremely competitive, film producers are now replacing their existing mono layer extruders with ABA 3 layer co extrusion blown film machines, mainly to save production cost. One of the biggest T-shirt bag producers in Vietnam has already replaced half of its mono layer extruders with ABA machines in the past 3 years to stay competitive in the local market.

The A-B-A blown film machine consists of two extruders, normally of two different sizes. The most common ones today are the combination of a 45mm screw diameter together with a 55mm for T-shirt bag production. For garbage bags, normally a 55mm screw diameter with a bigger 65mm is used. In the A-A outer layer, normally 20% of CaCO3 is used, with some additional of color masterbatch, LLDPE and a larger percentage of HDPE. The B layer can be used with larger percentage of CaCO3 with HDPE raw material. In-house recycled pellets can also be used to the mixture.

Besides reducing a significant amount of raw material used in the formula, another advantage of the ABA machine is that the 3 layer film that it produces is 30% stronger than film produced by a mono layer extruder. The ABA machine is also much more economic comparing to an ABC three layer machine as it has one extruder less.

Polystar, a Taiwanese manufacturer of blown film machines has shifted its main focus onto making and re-engineering ABA technology, because it has noticed this big shift in market trend in many countries where it exports to. In Russia, for example, the mono layer blown film market is almost dead for Polystar, despite the fact that it used to sell at least 50 mono layer blown film machines to the market annually for almost a decade. Instead, 90% of the blown film machines that Polystar has sold to Russia since 2010 has been the ABA type. One of the leading and largest film and bag producers in St. Petersburg (Russia) who currently with 60 sets of Polystar's mono layer blown film machines, has also been very active in upgrading their machines to the ABA type from mono layer extruders.

Polystar has recently installed 22 sets of mono layer blown film machines in Yangon, Myanmar in a newly-established film production factory. The production line was purchased by one of the largest Japanese investment groups, who aims to produce films locally in Myanmar, and later exports the packaging film products back to Japan. Its main products include flat bags, T-shirt and garbage bags. However, Polystar believes that this type of set up is only likely in a country where labor cost is still relatively low. In markets where labor cost is higher and more competition exists, producers must find a way to lower their production cost in order to increase profit margin.

PP recycling machine

POLYSTAR's high efficiency, one-step PP recycling machine Repro-Flex is designed for the reprocessing of PE polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed. This cutter integrated pelletizing system eliminates the need of pre-cutting the material, requires less space and energy consumption while producing high quality plastic pellets at a productive rate.

In addition to in-house (post-industrial) film waste, the system is also able to process washed flakes, scraps and regrind (pre-crushed rigid plastic waste from injection and extrusion). This equipment is highly recommended for packaging film producers of commercial bags, garbage bags, agricultural films, food packaging, shrink and stretch films, as well as producers in the woven industry of PP woven bags, jumbo bags, tapes and yarns. Other types of material such as PS sheet, PE and PS foam, PE net, EVA, PP mixed with PU are also applicable on this machine.

One Step, All-in-One direct recycling:

The Repro-Flex PP recycling machine combines cutting, extrusion and pelletizing into one compact and efficient recycling line. The cutter compactor of the recycling machine prepares (pre-conditions) the material into an ideal condition for the extrusion process and feed the material directly into the extruder with a centrifugal force. Comparing to the conventional recycling machines, this integrated system does not require a separate crusher, eliminates the problem of inconsistent feeding (over-feeding or insufficient feeding)

Easy material feeding without the need for pre-cutting

The waste material enters the machine from the belt conveyor (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and the nip roll feeder (for complete film rolls) at the same time. An extra silo tank can also be added to store and feed pre-washed film flakes. The feeding is controlled automatically based on how full the cutter compactor is. The cutter compactor then cuts, dries and compacts the material into a semi-molten condition (just below the agglomeration point), which is optimal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutter compactor then feeds the material directly and consistently into the extruder screw

Higher output capacity:

The integration of the cutter compactor and extruder ensures extremely fast and stable feeding, the tangentially connected extruder is continuously filled with pre-compacted material. This results in a much higher production output comparing to other types of recycling systems on the market

Higher pellets quality: 

The stable material feeding together with the hot die face pelletizer produce round-shaped, uniformed size pellets that are higher in value and optimal for reproduction (extrusion processes).

Plastic bag recycling machine (Repro-Flex)

POLYSTAR's high efficiency, one-step plastic bag recycling machine Repro-Flex is designed for the reprocessing of PE polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed. This cutter integrated pelletizing system eliminates the need of pre-cutting the material, requires less space and energy consumption while producing high quality plastic pellets at a productive rate.

In addition to in-house (post-industrial) film waste, the system is also able to process washed flakes, scraps and regrind (pre-crushed rigid plastic waste from injection and extrusion). This equipment is highly recommended for packaging film producers of commercial bags, garbage bags, agricultural films, food packaging, shrink and stretch films, as well as producers in the woven industry of PP woven bags, jumbo bags, tapes and yarns. Other types of material such as PS sheet, PE and PS foam, PE net, EVA, PP mixed with PU are also applicable on this machine.

One Step, All-in-One direct recycling:

The Repro-Flex plastic bag recycling machine combines cutting, extrusion and pelletizing into one compact and efficient recycling line. The cutter compactor of the recycling machine prepares (pre-conditions) the material into an ideal condition for the extrusion process and feed the material directly into the extruder with a centrifugal force. Comparing to the conventional recycling machines, this integrated system does not require a separate crusher, eliminates the problem of inconsistent feeding (over-feeding or insufficient feeding)

Easy material feeding without the need for pre-cutting

The waste material enters the machine from the belt conveyor (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and the nip roll feeder (for complete film rolls) at the same time. An extra silo tank can also be added to store and feed pre-washed film flakes. The feeding is controlled automatically based on how full the cutter compactor is. The cutter compactor then cuts, dries and compacts the material into a semi-molten condition (just below the agglomeration point), which is optimal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutter compactor then feeds the material directly and consistently into the extruder screw

Higher output capacity:

The integration of the cutter compactor and extruder ensures extremely fast and stable feeding, the tangentially connected extruder is continuously filled with pre-compacted material. This results in a much higher production output comparing to other types of recycling systems on the market

Higher pellets quality: 

The stable material feeding together with the hot die face pelletizer produce round-shaped, uniformed size pellets that are higher in value and optimal for reproduction (extrusion processes).

Successful recycling business installation in Germany

Milestone reached: 160th re-engineered HNT-V sold
After the installation of a 450kg/hr cutter-compactor plastic recycling system in Dortmund Germany in April, Polystar, the Taiwanese plastic recycling system manufacturer, celebrates another milestone. This was the 100th re-engineered cutter compactor film recycling system that Polystar has installed in a customer's factory since 2012. More than 160 units of the same model have been sold to 85 countries worldwide in less than 3 years. The plastic recycling system manufacturer's experience in producing this type of systems gives customers much added value and reliability.

With more than 40% revenue growth every year since 2011, Polystar is currently the largest manufacturer of plastic recycling system in Taiwan. The biggest advantage of the company is its ability to supply customers with high quality plastic recycling systems at a very affordable cost.

High-efficiency plastic recycling systems with less process and higher output
Polystar, the plastic recycling system manufacturer, has been focusing on the re-engineering of its best-selling model, the HNT-V, is designed specifically for post-industrial film recycling and reprocessing. The one-step, high-efficiency plastic recycling system with a cutter integration eliminates the need for pre-cutting and pre-conditioning of polyethylene and polypropylene film waste generated from in-house.

Polystar, the Taiwanese plastic recycling system manufacturer, not only works with some of the biggest film producers around the world, but also cooperates closely with many medium and smaller producers. As the plastic recycling system manufacturer provides customers a wide range of capacity to choose from (50kg per hour all the way up to 1,000kg per hour), most factories can easily find a plastic recycling system that is suitable both economic-wise and productivity-wise.

Turn your ex-factory waste back into the production line!
In general, plastic film waste and scrap recycling can be a problematic operation, since the low bulk density of the material can make high output difficult to achieve. Polystar's plastic recycling system with an integration of a cutter compactor helps to solve this problem by giving the material a quick densification, before feeding it directly into the tangentially connected extruder. This process helps to achieve very stable and fast output comparing to other methods in the market today. The plastic recycling system can process scrap material on a conveyor and film-on-roll on nip roll film feeder simultaneously.

The most commonly processed industrial waste from blown film and cast film productions are: Printed and unprinted PE (HDPE/LDPE), PP, heavily printed films, edge trims, defected film roll scrap, multi-layer films (PE/PA), stretch and shrink films are ideal for this plastic recycling system.

The plastic recycling system manufacturer's recycling machines, built for 24/7 reliable and easy operation, provide customers with a cost-effective way to reuse plastic, putting the waste and scrap back into the manufacturing process to increase profit margin. The like-new, high quality recycled pellets give great value back to the film producers as they can be put directly back into the production line.

The plastic recycling system manufacturer's recycling machines are equipped with Siemens energy saving motors and electrical components from Schneider. Comparing to European machinery suppliers, Polystar's machines have a much faster return on investment, providing high quality recycling machines at a very affordable cost.

The plastic recycling system manufacturer machine show rooms in the United Kingdom, Dubai, Russia and India with live demonstration have been receiving customers every week. The next step for the plastic recycling system manufacturer will be to open a show room in Mexico and another one in South America, as the demand in the region continues to increase.

New Tech (ABA) to Dominate UAE Show

See live display of POLYSTAR’s ABA blown film technology at Plastivision Arabia

The upcoming Plastivision Arabia international plastics exhibition and conference is set to bring a host of new machinery and equipment to the region that will help plastic processors gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

The 3rd Plastivision Arabia 2016, to be held at Expo Centre Sharjah from February 22 to 25, will showcase leading global manufacturers and several technical innovations that can generate outstanding output with minimum power consumption and faster return on investment.

POLYSTAR is one such international major that will exhibit its blown film extrusion and recycling lines -- Eco-Flex, the ABA blown film technology that produce a thinner, stronger film at substantially lower production cost.

“Plastivision Arabia has come to be known for introducing a wide range of new technology, which has found ready takers in the region. In fact, Plastivision Arabia has acquired a unique reputation for seeing all its machines and equipment on live display being sold even before the show comes to an end,” said Mr Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, CEO, Expo Centre Sharjah.

“Regional plastics processors have readily accepted anything that helps them cut down the usage of virgin raw material and thus reduce production cost. For film producers, the ABA blown film technology is a great replacement of monolayer machines,” Mr Midfa added

In the region, blown film extruders mostly are mono-layers, and industry observers point out that converters are currently investing in new multi-layer extrusion processes. ABA is extremely competitive for manufacturing garbage & shopping bags, shrink film (for bottle wrapping), construction film and t-shirt bags, among others.

Technically, in ABA type film, the outer and inner layers will be of the same polymer fed by the same extruder and a middle layer will be of a different polymer that will be fed by a second extruder. A high percentage (up to 50-70%) of calcium carbonate compounds or recycled material can be used in the middle layer of the film, thus cutting down the usage of virgin raw material and reducing production cost.

Visitors to the show will be able to see live how the ABA blown film technology works and order the machines directly.

POLYSTAR, which is a globally recognized machine manufacturer of plastic recycling, blown film extrusion and sealing machines in Taiwan, will also provide high-level of customization, depending on the requirement, space and budget of prospective clients.

Polystar is part of the impressive line-up of Taiwanese exhibitors that have confirmed their participation.

About Plastivision Arabia 2016:

Plastivision Arabia 2016 will be organized by Expo Centre Sharjah, in association with All India Plastics Manufacturers Association, and the support of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Polystar's Repro-One technology offers one-step recycling for soft and rigid plastics

Issue date:12/09/2016
Source: CPRJ Editorial Team (JEN)

Polystar's latest Repro-One recycling technology has integrated a heavy-duty single shaft shredder that is directly connected with the extruder pelletizer, offering a one-step process for recycling of both soft and rigid plastics.

The recycling machine is ideal for polypropylene (PP) raffia/PP non-woven, polyethylene (PE) film manufacturer who process their rejected raffia waste (tapes, fabric, jumbo big bags, lumps, blown film start-up waste) generated from in-house production.

The recycled pellets can be put directly back into tape extrusion lines or blown/cast film lines for immediate reprocessing. These recycled pellets can be loaded in high percentages and still produce high quality fabric with good tensile strength and elongation, said Polystar.

In Repro-One, plastic scrap is processed by a single shaft shredder for initial size reduction. The precisely controlled ram inside the shredder continuously pushes the bulky material towards the rotating shredder.

After shredding, the material is fed directly into the extruder. The material feeding is auto-controlled by the hydraulic force. The material then goes through degassing (if the material is printed) and filtered before the die face pelletizing process.
The integrated shredder can effectively process large-sized waste such as jumbo bags, raffia, tape, rope, lumps from extrusion start-up, woven and nonwoven, without pre-shredding in advance.

According to Polystar, this eliminates the need of pre-cutting/pre-shredding large-sized, thick or bulky waste (including hard plastics), feeding the waste directly from the shredder into the extruder at a fast and constant rate without over-heating the material. It ensures continuous and uniform feeding to the extruder that produces high quality recycled pellets.

Taiwan equipment company Polystar invests $9 million in new facility

Source: Plastics News USA
Issue Date: 2016 / 08 /26

Taipei, Taiwan — Taiwanese recycling equipment and blow film extrusion machine maker Polystar Machinery Co. Ltd. is spending $9 million to build a new factory that will increase its capacity and upgrade its showroom and testing center.

In an Aug. 15 interview at the Taipei Plas trade show in Taiwan, the company said it hopes to complete the new 107,000 square foot facility, near its existing headquarters and factory in the city of Tainan, by 2018.

“We are looking to increase the production capacity of machinery by at least 50 percent and have the potential to eventually double the capacity if the sales continue to grow as planned,” said Sales Manager Jack Lin.

The company will keep its current factory for additional production and spare parts, he said.

Since launching its brand under the Polystar name, has transitioned from being a contract manufacturer making equipment for European firms to selling its own equipment.

The vast majority of the company’s sales today are the Polystar brand, Lin said.

The company started manufacturing equipment in 1988 and has delivered more than 3,200 recycling machines to more than 102 countries.

Lin said they believe the firm’s sales are growing because it’s focused on designing simpler, automated recycling machines that tightly integrate functions including cutting, extrusion and pelletizing.

“Our focus is on making recycling extremely simple and user friendly for our customers,” Lin said. “Over the past 30 years, we’ve tried to do all this different kind of engineering to really improve the machine. At some point, we were making it too complicated.”

Customers “want something very simple and easy to maintain, to teach their operators,” he said.

ABA 3 layer co-extrusion Eco-Flex

ABA Blown Film Technology: Thinner, stronger film at lower production cost

Many film producers have adopted the ABA blown film technology as a replacement of monolayer machines nowadays, mainly because a high percentage (up to 50~70%) of CaCO3 compounds an be used in the B (middle) layer of the film. This significantly cuts down the usage of virgin raw material and thus reduces production cost.

In 2015, Polystar and its representative in Russia Evropolimer has already carried out more than 10 installations of 3 layer ABA blown film extrusion machines in different industrial areas of Russia. With the third consecutive year of increased number in sales, repeated orders and positive customer feedback, it is evident that ABA is extremely competitive for manufacturing T-shirt and garbage bags comparing to mono (one) layer production. In markets where the price of HDPE raw material has increased significantly, ABA provides a great advantage in terms of lowering production cost and increasing product quality and competiveness.

The main advantages of the ABA line are:
● Stronger, higher film resistance comparing to mono layer film products with the same thickness
● Cost saving: Virgin material is applied mainly on the outer (thin) layers which is relatively a very small percentage of the film composition
● Better material mixing with co-extrusion to produce better quality film

The main usage and applications of the ABA machines are:
● For the production of T-shirt bags, garbage bags and shrink film (for bottle wrapping)
● 60% CaC3 compounds or recycled material can be used in the middle layer
● Thin outer layers with virgin material to cover the film surface so that it still looks good and shinny despite the usage of secondary grade material in the middle layer

The ABA blown film extruders consists of two extruders to produce 3-layer film. The most common ones today are the combination of a 45mm extruder together with a 55mm to produce 500~1000mm film width, and a 55/65mm extruder combination to produce up to 1400mm film in width, particularly for the production of T-shirt bag and garbage bags. The B (middle) layer, which makes up about 60~75% of the film composition, usually consists of 60~70% CaCO3 compounds. Recycled pellets (from in-house waste) can also be added to the blend. The re-designed screw helps to achieve maximum efficiency during the film production process. A better extrusion mixing is able to produce outstanding film quality, even when working with 60% CaCO3 and recycled material in the mixture.

A key focus: ABA 3 Layer
Polystar has put a major emphasis on the re-designing and manufacturing of ABA blown film extruders in recent years. Approximately 135 sets of Polystar ABA type blown film extruders have been installed worldwide, particularly in countries where monolayer film production has become competitive. Polystar provides high customization on the ABA machines depending on customer’s requirement, space and budget concerns.

Vietnamese film producer reduces raw material cost significantly with POLYSTAR's recycling machine

In June 2016, one of the leading Vietnamese flexible packaging film producers installed a POLYSTAR recycling line to recover its in-house film waste generated from blown film and cast film lines. Since the commissioning of the machine in Ho Chi Minh, the company has already recovered more than 1,000 tons of post-industrial film waste, turning rejected post-industrial film scraps back to high quality pellets for immediate reprocessing in the film extrusion lines. 

The flexible packaging film maker produces a wide variety of products including shrinkable film and various types of PE and PP film, both printed and non-printed. With the addition of the new POLYSTAR it can now process all of its in-house waste to ensure the quality of the recycled pellets is consistently high.

During the past 13 months, POLYSTAR has already sold more than 10 lines to the Vietnamese market. Another 500kg/hr line will be installed in Hanoi this November.

Beside the Vietnamese market, POLYSTAR has significantly increased its markets share in the Asian market in recent years, working with renowned film producers in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. It has established itself as a premier recycling solution provider thanks to proven success, positive customer feedback and references.

POLYSTAR’s HNT-V is an one-step plastic recycling technology, combining cutting, extrusion and pelletizing. The production waste enters the plastic waste recycling machine from the conveyor belt (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and also through nip roll feeder (for film-on-rolls) at the same time. 
 
Material input is controlled automatically based on the load of the cutter compactor. Through natural heat and friction, the cutter compactor then cuts and densifies the material into a semi-molten condition (a brief gentle heating just below the agglomeration point) for the subsequent extrusion process. 

The POLYSTAR recycling line can reprocess a variety of films including printed and non printed high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density (LDPE), polypropylene (PP) and BOPP.

Different film compositions, ranging from monolayer, multi-layer to laminated films with different degrees of printing percentage can be recycled into high quality pellets without significant changes in properties.

The cutter compactor subsequently feeds the compacted material directly and consistently into the extruder then into the degassing, filtering and pelletizing processes.

The recycling line is able to turn a variety of films products (of different thickness and printed percentage) into high quality pellets. The Vietnamese packaging supplier is using these recycled pellets for production of T-shirt bags and garbage bags. According to the Vietnamese film producer, it allows the company to save up to 30% in raw material procurement.           

POLYSTAR supplies different types of plastic recycling machines for the plastic industry with various types of crushing and shredding technology integration. Both cutter compactor and single shaft shredder integration are provided to meet different recycling applications from the plastic film, woven/raffia and injection sectors. Ranging from monolayer to complex 3 or 5 multi-layered film can be processed with different types of POLYSTAR recycling technology, with a range of output selection from 50kg/hr to 1000kg/hr.

Film recycling machine installed in Dubai

In January 2015, another Polystar plastic recycling machine was commissioned in the leading film and bag producer in Dubai to recover production waste generated from in house.  

 The company was established in 1982 and focuses mainly on the manufacturing of polyethylene sheets and bags. Its product range includes HDPE/LDPE plain and printed bags for supermarkets, agricultural products and boutiques, shrink wrap covers (for wrapping pellets during transportation and storage of cement bags and beverages), heavy duty garbage bags and many others.

The company had previously acquired a plastic recycling machine with the integration of a single shaft shredder but has been facing some problems especially with film recycling. The light-weight film flakes creates the problem of "bridging" at the shredding section which makes it difficult to feed the shredded film flakes consistently into the extruder from the shredder. The material is often over-fed or fed insufficiently due to the low bulk density of the film waste.

Polystar’s film recycling machine with an integration of a cutter compactor helps to solve this problem by giving the material a quick densifying process before feeding it directly into the tangentially connected extruder. This process helps to achieve very stable and fast output. The machine can process scrap material on a conveyor and film-on-roll on nip roll film feeder simultaneously. Plastic film waste and scrap recycling can be a problematic operation, since the low bulk density of the material can make high output difficult to achieve. As it is hard to achieve high throughput with the light-weighted film flakes without going through densification and compacting process first.

Algerian mulch film recycler installed fourth POLYSTAR

In August 2015, Polystar installed its fourth high-performing pelletizing line in the Algiers-based film recycling company. The newly installed line increases the total capacity to 3 ton per hour, processing both washed agricultural mulch film and post-industrial film as well as regrind materials.

With this successful set up and repeated order within such a short period of time, Polystar once again demonstrates its competence in the sector of AG film recycling.

The Algiers-based film recycler (and producer) has purchased its first POLYSTAR in 2013, and has expanded its recycling capacity over the last 2 years by nearly three times. Working together with another washing line manufacturer, the same set up (washing line + Polystar pelletizing line) has been operating since 2013.

Agricultural film occupies a significant part of recyclable film. Yet, the high degree of contamination (through mineral and organic material) of the soft and light-weighted film waste makes reprocessing difficult. The right recycling solution with a combination of shredding, washing, drying and extruding pelletizing is crucial in order to process AG film efficiently, ensuring high throughput rates for high quality recycled pellets, even in the case of materials which are difficult to process.

Washing line: Crushing, washing and drying before extrusion
Extrusion pelletizing: Dosing, filtering, degassing and pelletization

The washing line first covers the initial material size-reduction (with a double shaft shredder) and pre-washing of the film. A “squeezing dryer” then performs the de-watering and drying process, turning the film flakes into a more rigid form. It is then processed in Polystar’s recycling pelletizing system, which features a double degassing and die-face pelletizing system.

With the combination of the two waste plastic waste recycling machines, the producer can recycle washed agricultural film flakes into high quality pellets. The Polystar recycling machine features an integration of a cutter compactor that provides extended drying, cutting, densifying, dosing (adding black color additives with an additive feeder), filtration, double degassing all in one single step.

AG Film waste as a valuable secondary material

According to the factory manager of the Algerian recycler, the Polystar waste recycling machine converts agricultural films into high quality recycled material that can be used for the production of garbage bags, LDPE pipe extrusion, construction covers and various applications in injection molding. Some products are even made with one hundred percent recycled pellets. The BOPP recycled pellets are used for injection related products such as PP chairs. “The uniform sized pellets are produced consistently, and this prevents problems later on when feeding in extrusion lines.”

Agricultural film consists of high quality plastics such as LDPE and LLDPE. They are in high demand and can reselling value if decent pellets quality can be achieved. The recycling of post consumer plastics as a secondary raw material with the best possible quality therefore plays a major role in making the use of resources more efficiently and at the same time, it can significantly reduce the negative environmental impact.

More applications in the same machine

In addition to washed AG film, the recycler is also using the Polystar line to process post-industrial film directly without pre-washing, including printed OPP, CPP, HDPE post-industrial and LDPE shrink film. Through the rapid densifying and compacting process in the cutter-compactor, the machine can process up to 1100kg per hour doing post-industrial LDPE film. The combined washing-pelletizing system can reach 700~ 900kg in each extrusion pelletizing system depending on the level of contamination.

South African Recycler chose POLYSTAR Repro-Flex

One of the professional recyclers in South Africa has adopted Polystar’s latest recycling technology Repro-Flex,currently processing post-industrial waste of BOPP, CPP, HDPE and LDPE printed and non-printed, producing more than 550 pounds/hour with the extremely compact recycling machine.The East London-based recycler has had experience with Italian recycling technology has chosen Polystar after its meeting in K-Show 2013.Since K show 2013, more than 100 sets POLYSTAR’s cutter compactor recycling machine have been installed worldwide in 70 countries throughout Asia, Africa, Europe, Middle East and Latin America.

Many clients have already ordered their second and third line in 2014 and 2015 after having experienced their first line for 1 ~ 1.5 years. From Germany to the US, from Saudi Arabia to Canada, customers from all around the world are providing positive feedback on their experience with POLYSTAR’s re-engineered recycling machine since 2013.In the case of the recycler in South Africa, “the performance of our Repro Flex recycling machine is superb and exceeded my expectations, it is highly productive and requires minimal maintenance cost. I’m happy to show our machine to any prospective buyer and we will definitely grow with POLYSTAR.” according to Mr. Earl.

 In the instance of a professional recycler in Monterrey, Canada, “we are very happy with the Polystar recycling machine and find it user friendly. It allows us to quickly switch between different types of materials, much faster and easier comparing to other machines available on the market. We have already decided to purchase the second Polystar this year,” said Mr. Jolan.Besides making the machine more compact, Polystar did not forget to enhance the quality with the new Repro Flex:

Overview of Polystar's latest Repro-Flex integrated recycling system:

-- No pre-cutting required: The cutter-compactor design is ideal for light-weight material (film and film flakes)One stage extruder alone can handle highly printed film
-- less material degradation, energy and space saving comparing to traditional recycling systems
-- Improved filtration and degassing units can handle highly printed material
-- Self adjusting pelletizing speed for higher quality and more uniform sized pellets
-- A more compact design with higher output 
-- Improved die-face pelletizing system for PP, BOPP and OPP film/woven/raffia waste

1. An Integrated system without the need for pre-crushing:

The integration of the cutter compactor directly with the extruder eliminates the need for pre-crushing plastic film. The feeding is therefore much faster and more stable. High throughput with the light-weighted film flakes can be easily achieved by going through densification and compacting process first.

2. High productivity

A 100mm screw (single stage) can achieve more than 400kg in post-industrial LDPE, where as in the conventional line a producer can hardly achieve 300kg

3. High automation with flexible waste feeding methods:

The machine can process scrap material on a conveyor and film-on-roll on nip roll film feeder simultaneously. This automates the entire process and is beneficial for producers in terms of labor cost saving, space saving and lowering energy consumption. The machine generates very low noise as it does not require a separate crusher to process the film waste in advance.

4. Lower operation cost (less space, lower energy consumption and lower labor cost):

The Polystar machine can process heavily printed PE/PP film in just one single extrusion stage. This replaces the traditional "two stage" mother-baby extruder pelletizer with less material degradation, as the extrusion process is done in a single stage. At the same time the machine consumes less energy and takes up less space because of its compactness (requires one extruder less and less motor power). In addition, only one person at the feeding section is sufficient for operating the machine.

5. Filtration and degassing

 A continuous filter with two flowing channel reduces operator  intervention. The double degassing and high-vacuum can effectively process  highly printed and humid material. The re-positioning of the filter and degassing eliminates the problem of material leaking in the vent (degassing) area in conventional lines. This allows producers to achieve higher production and process printed film more efficiently.

Latest film recycling technology introduced in Mexico

Polystar installed its latest PE/PP film recycling machine in Guadalajara. The demo machine in NPE (Orlando) was delivered to Mexico immediately after the exhibition in March.

Polystar has also improved its after-sale service in Mexico with its local representative Plasticenter, who now stores Polystar’s spare parts locally in Mexico City for an in-time spare parts delivery. Plasticenter provides both installation and after-sales services in Mexico of all Polystar equipment.

Polystar has been very active in the Mexican film recycling in the past 2 years, and this was the 13th recycling machine that Polystar has installed in Mexico since 2014. Both demo machines from Plastimagen 2014 and NPE 2015 were sold and delivered to Mexico.

Polystar will be commissioning several more in the following months.

Polystar will again demonstrate its recycling line with live operation in Full Plast (Chile) in November 2015 as well as Plastimagen and K show in 2016.

Polystar’s one step recycling machine not only turns plastic film waste of HDPE, LDPE, PP into high quality pellets that can be reused in many applications, but also automates the entire reprocessing process that is beneficial for producers in terms of labor cost saving, space saving and lowering energy consumption.

Since K show 2013, more than 100 sets POLYSTAR’s re-engineered recycling machine have been sold to 70 countries worldwide. Amongst them, 27 installations have been carried out throughout Central and South America in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, and Paraguay in the last 18 months.

The cutter compactor of the recycling machine prepares (pre-conditions) the material into an ideal condition for the extrusion process and feed the material directly into the extruder with a centrifugal force. Comparing to the conventional recycling machines, this integrated system does not require a separate crusher, and therefore, eliminates the problem of inconsistent feeding. The integration ensures an extremely fast and stable feeding as the tangentially connected extruder is continuously filled with pre-compacted material.

Many clients have already ordered their second and third line in 2014 and 2015 after having experienced their first line for 1 ~ 1.5 years. From Germany to the US, from Saudi Arabia to Canada, customers from all around the world are providing positive feedback on their experience with POLYSTAR’s re-engineered recycling machine since 2013.

In the case of the recycler in South Africa, “the performance of our Repro Flex recycling machine is superb and exceeded my expectations; it is highly productive and requires minimal maintenance cost. I’m happy to show our machine to any prospective buyer and we will definitely grow with POLYSTAR.” according to Mr. Earl.

In the instance of a professional recycler in Monterrey, Canada, “we are very happy with the Polystar recycling machine that we bought in 2013 and find it user friendly. It allows us to quickly switch between different types of materials. We have already decided to purchase the second Polystar at NPE this year knowing that it will be even better than the first machine,” said Mr. Jolan.

Polystar began with the manufacturing of its first tangentially connected cutter-extruder combined recycling machine in the year of 1988. Today there are more than 1,000 of this type of Polystar recycling system in operation worldwide. The company has continuously worked on improving and optimizing this system throughout three main generations of evolution.

Key Features of Polystar’s cutter-compactor integrated recycling line:

1. No pre-crushing needed:
The integration of the cutter compactor and extruder eliminates the need for pre-crushing film waste in advance. High output capacity can be achieved by going through a quick densification that is optimal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutting-extruding-pelletizing combination works flawlessly in one single step.

2. High automation with flexible and easy feeding methods:
The belt conveyor feeds the film scraps/flakes while the nip-roller intakes the film-on-roll simultaneously. The feeding is controlled automatically based on how full the cutter compactor is.

3. Effective degassing and filtration system
●A continuous filter with two flowing channels reduces operator intervention.
●The double degassing and high-vacuum can effectively process printed material

Turkish based film producer goes for POLYSTAR

Polystar installed another 250kg/hr plastic film recycling machine in Turkey.

The Turkish packaging company manufactures various types of printed and unprinted bags including grocery store bags, soft loop handle bags, fruit and vegetable bags as well as other types of food packaging products.

The newly installed Polystar recycling machine enables the producer to put the recycled pellets directly back into its mono and multi-layer blown film lines up to 100%, keeping the post-industrial waste recycling and film extrusion/reprocessing completely in-house.

The in-house recycling process results in minimal material property loss as well as controlling the quality of the material. The recycled pellets are of very good quality and are ideal for reuse in blown film extrusion.

The output ranges between 200~250kg per hour, processing different types of film and bag scraps of HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE.

The compact, one-step recycling technology (cutting/compacting + gentle extrusion + pelletizing) requires minimal space and labor intervention.

The bag and film scraps are fed via the belt conveyor while the nip roll feeder feeds the film-on-roll wastes into the cutter-compactor simultaneously. The feeding is controlled automatically (continues/pauses) based on how full the cutter compactor is. The cutter compactor then cuts and densifies the light-weighted film waste into a semi-molten condition (a gentle heating just below the agglomeration point), which is ideal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutter compactor then feeds the compacted material directly and consistently into the extruder screw with high output.

This was the 4th recycling machine installation that Polystar has done in Turkey in 2015, with a few more to be commissioned in the upcoming months. Polystar will also be exhibiting its recycling line in PlastEurasia this December with live demonstration.

PE foam recycling machine installed in Germany

A PE foam recycling machine has been installed in Germany for converting the post-industrial LDPE cross-link foam into granules in October.

The 200 Kg-per-hour cutter-compactor integrated recycling machine was commissioned in Florstadt, Germany for a PE foam producer. The company installed this PE foam recycling machine to reprocess different sizes of foam and cutting skeletons generated from their own production line.

An additional equipment, the single shaft shredder, is used to shred the material at first, and then the foam will be fed to the recycling machine for making uniformed and high quality pellets. Pellets made from the waste PE foam would be used again into production line in the same plant immediately.

This 200kg/hr foam recycling machine has flexibility to process PE/PP in forms of foams, films, bags, flakes as well as regrinds. Currently, this German company also collects the in-house waste of LDPE films from other companies nearby and reprocesses them back into plastic pellets for resell.

According to the production manager from this German company, this PE foam recycling machine was mounted simply for solution of their own in-house waste in the beginning, but at the end, it helps expand their business to a new category for recycling and gains more profits than expected.

AG Plastic Film recycling line installed in Portugal

In recent years, Polystar has successfully teamed-up with different washing line manufacturers from Germany, Italy, Taiwan, Turkey and China in numerous turnkey recycling projects, in which Polystar’s recycling pelletizing lines are working together with a washing line made by another machine manufacturer.

In June 2015, Polystar, in cooperation with a German washing line manufacturer, has mounted a complete plastic recycling and pelletizing system for the film recycler in Portugal. The Lisbon-based film recycler has the same set up (washing line + Polystar pelletizing line) in its UK branch located in Manchester, which has been in operation since 2013.

With the combination of the two recycling systems, the producer is now able to recycle washed agricultural film flakes into high quality pellets. The Polystar recycling machine features an integration of a cutter compactor that provides further drying, cutting, densifying, dosing (with an additive feeder), filtering and dual degassing in one single step.

The 900kg/hr Polystar has replaced two Italian-made pelletizing lines that the company formerly owned. The previous recycling lines, with a hopper and force-feeding design, were processing mainly washed and dried rigid regrind from injection waste, producing about 300~ 400kg/hr each. According to the owner, the previous system was suitable for rigid regrind but not effective for film waste. “We had no problem with the hard plastic, but we were constantly facing problems with the washed film flakes because it’s so light in weight and still contained some moisture even after the drying process,” said Mr. Gervais de Matas. “The force feeding mechanism just couldn’t give us a stable output for film processing.”

“Besides saving labor cost, the cutter-compactor system from Polystar is definitely giving us an advantage for a more constant output and better quality pellets,” said the owner, “mainly because the it can help to further reduce the moisture level of the film flakes coming from the washing line. It is beneficial for both processing washed film flakes and rigid regrind.

In addition to washed AG film, the recycler is also using the Polystar line to process post-industrial film directly without pre-washing, including printed BOPP film, LDPE post-industrial and LLDPE stretch film. Through the quick densifying and compacting process, the machine can process up to 1100kg per hour with post-industrial LDPE film. The combined washing-pelletizing system can can reach 700~ 900kg with the AG film depending on the level of contamination.

According to the production manager, the system converts agricultural films into recycled material that can be used for the production of garbage bags and construction covers, made from one hundred percent recycled plastic. The BOPP recycled pellets are used for injection related products such as PP chairs.

The washing line first covers the initial size-reduction and pre-washing of the film, followed by a separation technique designed to separate heavier plastics from lighter plastics. The washed and dried film flakes are then processed by Polystar’s Repro-Felx pelletizing system, which features a double degassing and die-face pelletizing system. The extrusion system is optimized for materials that are more difficult to process with humidity level up to 7%.

The multi-national company plans to expand this year in its branch in Dubai, UAE with the third set up after Portugal and UK. In August, Polystar will be installing 3 more similar systems in Algeria and Vietnam for the same application.

A new milestone - success in Chilean recycling market

Following a successful exhibition at FullPlast (Chile), POLYSTAR has reached a new milestone with its 15th  installation of its new generation recycling machine in the Chilean market, in only 22 months.

With strong after-sale and technical support by its local Chilean representative, POLYSTAR has established itself as a premium brand of recycling line that offers reliable and high performing equipment in the market with proven success and satisfied customers.

Efficient in-house recycling  

In the example of Temuplas, plastic manufacturer of high and low-density polyethylene bags, with operations in Temuco city, Chile, has acquired POLYSTAR’s plastic recycling machine for recovering its in house production waste as well as waste collected from outside. The increase in price of raw material forces the plastic producer to cut down the use of virgin materials in order to reduce costs. 

"We decided to bring our own recycling plant to process our own film waste and at the same time, creating surplus production capacity that allows us to collect industrial waste from other producers," said Mr. Ortiz, general manager of the Chilean company. The investment pays off rapidly because we are using less primary raw materials and savings in disposal cost.

Recycling has allowed Temuplas to save about 30 percent in raw material buying. The reuse of valuable secondary raw material has become indispensable for plastic producers today to stay competitive.

Recycling without quality loss: recycled pellets are ideal for reuse in blown film extrusion

With POLYSTAR’s recycling technology, the recycled pellets are put back into the blown film production process. The soft recycling process results in minimal material degradation without notable property change.

Examples of the waste are PE edge trim and roll (from blown film), HDPE and LDPE film scraps, left over waste from punches, both printed and non-printed film from the production waste are processed.

Some of the film products such as garbage bags are made of 100% recycled pellets, and the quality of the end product remains superb.

A high performing, user-friendly, one-step recycling technology

“With POLYSTAR’s recycling machine, we are currently processing 300kg per hour at a very stable and consistent rate,” says Marcelo Zurita, production manager of Temuplas.  Besides being productive, the machine design is extremely user friendly and easy to operate. “Polystar has made recycling much more simple for us.”

The one-step technology (cutting + extrusion + pelletizing) requires minimal space labor intervention with consistently high and stable output. 

The waste material enters the plastic recycling machine from the belt conveyor (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and nip roll feeder (for film-on-rolls) at the same time. The feeding is controlled automatically based on how full the cutter compactor is. The cutter compactor then cuts, dries and compacts the material into a semi-molten condition (a gentle heating just below the agglomeration point), which is optimal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutter compactor then feeds the compacted material directly and consistently into the extruder screw.

Polystar- Simple Repro-Flex recycling solution showcase at K 2016

POLYSTAR-had been recognized as a top choice manufacturer for plastic recycling machine after K 2013. The fast-growing Taiwanese manufacturer recorded an impressive new record, selling 12 cutter-integrated recycling machines at the K 2013 alone. New projects have already begun for clients from Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Hungary, Portugal, Lithuania, Egypt, Venezuela, Mexico, Kenya, India, Indonesia, and the United States. Through closer cooperation with global customers in recent years. POLYSTAR pay deeply attention to each specific requirement and make steady improvement to satisfy the need from the customers.
In order to make the operation more effective and user friendly, POLYSTAR redesigned the recycling machine and will implement the new “ Simple in design, Flexible in operation” concept at K 2016.
Most importantly, the recycling machine has been made extremely simple to operate.

With many proven success experience and customer’s feedback, POLYSTAR found out some other electronic control system of recycling machines are “ over-computerized”. Once the software of the control system is breakdown, the machinery will be shutdown and greatly affect the production. Thus, POLYSTAR develop the intelligent “ Auto” & “ Manual” dual control system. The operation is turned to be more user friendly and efficient compared to many control system from European company. This is exactly the “Simple” operation which POLYSTAR emphasize on.

Concern about the after sales service, POLYSTAR had established the completed easy maintenance guide, spare parts replacement instruction, machine operation guide, commonly asked trouble shooting tool..etc. The customer can review these guide tool via on-line platform and make the operation more simple and easy. Moreover, “ Spare parts on-line” system is build up on POLYSTAR’s web shop to satisfy the immediate need from customers.

Simple in design, Flexible in operation

POLYSTAR’s Repro-Flex one-step plastic recycling machine is designed for the reprocessing of polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed. The Repro-Flex recycling machine combines cutting, extrusion and pelletizing into one compact and efficient recycling line. The cutter compactor of the recycling machine prepares (pre-conditions) the material into an ideal condition for the extrusion process and feed the material directly into the extruder with a centrifugal force. Compared to conventional recycling machines, this integrated system does not require a separate crusher, and therefore, eliminates the problem of inconsistent feeding (over-feeding or insufficient feeding).

The advantages of Repro-Flex

1. An Integrated system without the need for pre-crushing:
The integration of the cutter compactor directly with the extruder eliminates the need for pre-crushing plastic film. The feeding is therefore much faster and more stable. High throughput with the light-weighted film flakes can be easily achieved by going through densification and compacting process first.

2. High automation with flexible waste feeding methods:
The Repro-Flex recycling system can process scrap material on a conveyor and film-on-roll on nip roll film feeder simultaneously. This automates the entire process and is beneficial for producers in terms of labor cost saving, space saving and lowering energy consumption. The machine generates very low noise as it does not require a separate crusher to process the film waste in advance.

3. Lower operation cost (less space, lower energy consumption and lower labor cost):
Polystar's plastic recycling systems can process heavily printed PE/PP film in just one single extrusion stage. This replaces the traditional "two stage" mother-baby extruder pelletizer with less material degradation, as the extrusion process is done in a single stage. At the same time the machine consumes less energy and takes up less space because of its compactness (requires one extruder less and less motor power). In addition, only one person at the feeding section is sufficient for operating the machine.

4. High quality, uniformed sized round shape pellets
The die face pelletizing system can efficiently produce high quality PP and PE pellets that are ideal for extrusion and injection. The water ring pelletizer does not create waste as it does with the spaghetti type pelletizer.

Since 1988, POLYSTAR had installed more than 2,000 sets of plastic recycling machines in the global market. POLYSTAR will keep sustainable management and grow up with the honorable customers for bright future .

Iran – ABA co-extrusion a new trend for bag makers

In June, the film producer located in Mashhad, Iran has added the 4th POLYSTAR line for the production of garbage and T-shirt bags.

Numerous film and bag producers have acquired the ABA blown film technology in recent years as a replacement of monolayer machines for bag production, largely because a high percentage (up to 50~70%) of CaCO3 compounds can be used in the B (middle) layer of the film, while the inner and outer (A-A) layers can be filled with virgin material to maintain good quality of the film surface. This significantly cuts down the usage of virgin raw material and thus reduces production cost.

The popular usage of ABA 3 layer machine for T-shirt and general packaging bag production has first started in Turkey in 2005, and has seen significant growth in the neighboring Russian market (in which POLYSTAR now holds over 50% of the market share for ABA) since 2011 and now in Iran as well in this region. POLYSTAR will install 3 more ABA machines in Iran this August along with other projects under production. As the cost of raw material fluctuates frequently, the ABA machines add great advantage and flexibility (comparing to mono layer, single extruders) for the bag producers – with the option of using high % CaCO3 compounds or recycled material in the middle layer.

In markets where the price of HDPE raw material has increased significantly, ABA provides a great advantage in terms of lowering production cost and increasing product quality and competiveness, especially for 15 ~ 30 micron in HDPE. Virgin material is applied mainly on the A-A (inner and outer) layers, which are relatively a very small percentage of the film composition with the ratio of approximate 1:6:1 (inner: middle: outer)

Besides a standard and economic, simple ABA model, POLYSTAR also offers more advanced optional upgrades such as precise gravimetric dosing system, extrusion control and fully automatic cutting and winding to enhance the performance and quality of the film production.

The ABA blown film extruders consists of two extruders to produce 3-layer film.
The most common ones today are the combination of a 45mm extruder together with a 55mm to produce 500~1000mm film width, and a 55/65mm extruder combination to produce 1100 up to 1400mm film in width, particularly for the production of T-shirt bag and garbage bags. The B (middle) layer, which makes up about 60~75% of the film composition, usually consists of 60~70% CaCO3 compounds. Recycled pellets (from in-house waste) can also be added to the blend. The re-designed screw helps to achieve maximum efficiency during the film production process. A better extrusion mixing is able to produce outstanding film quality, even when working with 40~70% CaCO3 and recycled material in the mixture.

A main focus for POLYSTAR: ABA 3 Layer
POLYSTAR has put a major emphasis on the re-designing and manufacturing of ABA blown film extruders in recent years. As of June 2016, 135 sets of POLYSTAR ABA type blown film extruders have been installed worldwide, particularly in countries where monolayer film production has become competitive. POLYSTAR provides high customization on the ABA machines depending on customer’s requirement, space and budget concerns.

The main advantages of the ABA line are:
- Stronger, higher film resistance comparing to mono layer film products with the same thickness
- Cost saving: Virgin material is applied mainly on the outer (thin) layers which is relatively a very small percentage of the film composition
- Better material mixing with co-extrusion to produce better quality film

The main usage and applications of the ABA machines are:
- For the production of T-shirt bags, garbage bags and shrink film
- 40%~70% CaC3 compounds or recycled material can be used in the middle layer
- Thin outer layers with virgin material to cover the film surface so that it still looks good and shinny despite the usage of secondary grade material in the middle layer

Dominican Republic – In-house recycling ensures sustainability of production waste

Located in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, the packaging film producer has stepped up its in-house recycling effort by working with Polystar.

The 37-year old plastic producer provides a wide range of plastic packaging and printing products including high and low density polyethylene film, shrink film, stretch film, flexo printed film, T shirt bags, garbage bags, patch handle bags, side sealing bags, laminated film, cluster bags, banana film and many others.

The newly installed Polystar plastic waste recycling machine can effectively and flexibly reprocess a variety of film products including heavily printed, lightly printed as well as non-printed HDPE, LDPE, PP, BOPP film waste. Different film compositions ranging from monolayer, two layer, multi-layer to laminated films with different degrees of printing percentage are reprocessed efficiently in Polystar’s Repro-Flex model which produces high quality recycled pellets.

In-house recycling returns the production waste up to 100%, putting high quality recycled pellets back into the production process (in this case blown film extrusion) and keeping the high quality of the end products (film) consistently high.

100% Sustainability: Recycling without quality loss - recycled pellets used for immediate blown film extrusion

With Polystar’s plastic waste recycling technology, the recycled HDPE and LDPE pellets are put right back into the blown film extrusion process. The gentle recycling process results in minimal material degradation without significant property change with reusability up to 100%.

Part of the film products such as T-shirt and garbage bags are made of 100% recycled pellets, and the quality of the end product remains high.

Top Productivity, flexibility, and user-friendliness:
The one-step recycling technology with easy operation

The one-step plastic waste recycling technology (combining cutting + extrusion + pelletizing) requires minimal space requirement and labor intervention.

The production waste enters the plastic waste recycling machine from the conveyor belt (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and also through nip roll feeder (for film-on-rolls) at the same time. The input is controlled automatically based on the load of the cutter compactor. Through natural heat and friction, the cutter compactor then cuts and densifies the material into a semi-molten condition (a brief gentle heating just below the agglomeration point), which is ideal for the extrusion process then follows. The cutter compactor subsequently feeds the compacted material directly and consistently into the extruder then into the degassing, filtering and pelletizing processes.

In-house recycling significantly reduces production and labor cost

Flexible packaging makes up approximately 25% of the world’s plastic productions. PE film applications such as shrink film; stretch films and BOPP occupy the sector with yearly growth rates up to 5 % in the market. As raw material costs makes up a majority (over 75%) of the production costs, the question of how to reduce and reuse production waste becomes important for all plastic producers.

Recycling has allowed the company to save about 20~30 percent in raw material procurement. The reclaim of valuable secondary raw material has become indispensable for plastic producers today to stay competitive in the market.

The successful case proves how in-house recycling can be done efficiently and intelligently. The in-house recycling solution saves production and labor cost at the same time with a fast return on investment.

Recycling without degassing - Israeli producer goes for un-vented model

In June, Polystar has installed a 250kg/hr plastic recycling system for the Israel-based LDPE plastic producer to recover its in-house waste generated from production process.

The Israel based plastic producer is the pioneer of drip and micro-irrigation products for agriculture, greenhouse, landscape and mining applications.

The Polystar plastic recycling system allows the plastic producer to recycle all of its waste generated from in-house. The cutter compactor handles both scraps and on-roll waste efficiently and produces uniform sized, high quality recycled pellets, which are ready for immediate reprocessing. The gentle recycling process results in minimal material degradation without significant property change with reusability up to 100%.

Unvented extruder: Ideal for non-printed material
The Israel-based plastic producer chose Polystar’s un-vented recycling machine model, which is ideal for clean and non-printed production waste. Other suitable applications for the unvented material are unprinted film scraps and film on-roll waste from in-house blown and cast film production (stretch film, shrink film, OPP, CPP, BOPP).

Advantage: The unvented extruder has a very short screw L/D ratio, in which the material travels in the extruder for the shortest time and distance. This results in minimal material degradation (minimal change in material property) and slightly higher output comparing to vented extruder. However, the limitation of the unvented system is that it does not have the capability of processing material with higher a printing percentage.

Today the Israeli company maintains 28 subsidiaries and 16 manufacturing plants worldwide, and employs over 4,000 workers. The company's offering includes drippers, dripperlines, sprinklers and micro-emitters. The company holds an over-30% share of the global drip irrigation market, and is recognized as the world-leading provider of drippers and dripperlines. In-house Recycling has allowed the company to save up a significant percentage in raw material buying. The reclaim of valuable secondary raw material not only reduces production cost but also keeps the production waste 100% clean and in-house.
