production of compounded pellets for different enduses / in a wide variety of formulations (e.g.: PO with mineral fillers, nanofillers, PA or PO with glass fibers, hot-melts, etc.); often in combination with waste recycling biopolymer processing production of color/additive masterbatches starting from base polymers and inorganic/organic pigments or from SPC granules and additional base polymers production of white or black masterbatches in special extrusion sections to be integrated with downstream equipment for various applications (e.g.: reliable solutions for PET dryerless extrusion into staple fibers, thermoformable sheets, etc.; sheet, pipe or profiles extrusion with compounding in-line) in D-LFT (Direct Long Fiber Technology) sheet lines in reactive extrusion applications (e.g.: for XLPE compounds, for continuous polymerization of TPU)
The field of plastic recycling is a "real world" that shows a quite positive trend.
While solutions based on single screw extruders have dominated significant portions of such world, the use of corotating twin screw extruders - as far as we could experience ourselves - has continuously been growing in connection with critical material recycling (e.g.: massive extraction of fumes, intimate blending of various type/grade polymers) and with desired compounding capabilities resulting in higher value products. A peculiar segment where Comac's special corotating twin screw extruders have found an interesting field of application is represented by dryerless solutions for PET flake recycling into semifinished products (e.g. thermoformable foil, fibers, yarn) or regenerated pellets.
