Recycling line - recoSTAR direct

The recoSTAR direct has been specially designed for recycling medium and large quantities of heavy regrind materials (> 300 g/l) such as PE, PP, PS, PA and PC.

From a feeding hopper, the material is transported directly into the extruder by a screw conveyor without being precut or compressed. The rate of material feeding is controlled automatically by the load on the extruder motor. The system is designed so that overloading and underloading are avoided.
Solid foreign substances are filtered by a continuous melt filter available with or without backflushing system. Depending on the type and quantity of the material the line can be equipped with a water ring, strand or underwater pelletising system.

The particular advantage of the recoSTAR direct is that no heating or other treatment of the material is necessary before extrusion. A clear and easy-to-use touch screen ensures a comfortable starting and stopping process and operation of the line.The recoSTAR direct series comprises five machine sizes which together cover an output range of 130 – 1200 kg/h. Each machine can be equipped with degassing, high vacuum, backflushing filter and any one of three pelletising systems.

Recycling line - recoSTAR dynamic

Ecological, economical, energy-saving
- these are the three keywords to describe the new recoSTAR dynamic recycling line. The pioneering machine concept is characterized by a very energy-efficient production process as well as a high grade of automation, which accounts for reliable and constant production, higher output, and wider range of applications.

The recoSTAR dynamic will also be the first of the Starlinger recycling lines to carry the "rECO" stamp. By using exclusively motors with the best efficiency ratings, energy consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced significantly. Features such as energy recovery systems in various process steps as well as infrared heating further slim down the energy costs for machine operation.

Designed for recycling plastic scrap from industrial and post-consumer applications, recoSTAR dynamic lines are especially suited for processing hygroscopic, wet and/or pre-ground and foamed materials. The SMART feeder optimally prepares the material prior to extrusion through performing simultaneously the following:

  • S hrink & cut
  • M ix & homogenize
  • A ctive feed & control
  • R otate & friction
  • T emperature & dry
The dynamic automation package ensures that the system is running at the ideal operating point. Consequently, higher output is achieved with lower energy consumption, and higher levels of humidity can be processed. The produced high-quality regranulate is suitable for a wide range of end use applications. 
The recoSTAR dynamic series is available in six sizes and covers an output range of 150 - 2600 kg/h.

Recycling line - recoSTAR universal

Versatility, Accessibility and Intelligence are the key highlights of the recoSTAR universal recycling line. New advanced features complement a well-proven technology. This state-of-the art recycling line with extended functionality and innovative process adaption through the ACTIVE shredder is especially designed for processing films, fibres and filaments, nonwovens, tapes, fabrics, as well as solid lumps, start-up scrap, injection moulding parts, and any type of regrind; from materials such as PE, PP, PS, PA, PES, PET, PPS, PLA, and others. The most efficient solution for rigid, flexible, and hard-to-grind materials.

ACTIVE shredder - ideal material preparation before the extrusion process due to:

A ccessibility & quick material change
C ontrolled cutting & dosing
T ight knife clearance & high performance
I ntelligent & innovative
V ersatile & wide material range
E asy start & stop operation

The material is fed without pre-cutting to the shredder by conveyor belt, film reel feeder or edge trim cyclone. The ACTIVE shredder ensures perfect material preparation for high output through exact cutting geometry and double-coil rotor design. A hydraulically driven pusher presses the material against the rotor, where it is cut between the rotary and stationary knives. However, cooling is kept to the necessary minimum so that the energy generated in cutting can be utilised in the extrusion process. 

The load-controlled dosing screw allows stable extruder feeding even when the bulk density varies. The machine is designed so that overloading and underloading are avoided. Easy access and maintenance leads to high uptime and availability.

The recoSTAR universal series comprises five machine sizes which together cover an output range of 150 – 1300 kg/h. Each machine can be equipped with degassing, high vacuum, backflushing filter and any one of three pelletising systems.

Recycling line - recoSTAR PET (non food)

The decisive criterion for all PET applications is that the use of repelletised material may not influence either extrusion or any following process, nor may it prejudice the quality of the end product. The Starlinger recoSTAR product line offers the ideal solution for PET recycling, as it fulfils both conditions with optimal pre-drying of the PET flakes and optional solid stating.

The recoSTAR PET line is state-of-the-art recycling technology for the in-house recycling of PET flakes from bottles, preforms, strapping bands and sheets as well as for the recycling of post-consumer bottle flakes after the washing process. The end product is melt-filtrated, uniform granulate that can be used for a wide range of applications (containers, sheets, fibers and nonwovens, strapping).

About us

Company details

We at Starlinger recycling technology have been globally oriented from the start. Plastics are processed everywhere, and many countries have collection and reuse programs for production and post-consumer waste.
The concern is universal, the needs of each recycler absolutely individual.
Proximity to customers and their markets, comprehensive process knowhow, modular equipment design and the ability to offer special solutions have made us the worldwide ‘partner of choice’ in recycling.

Manufacturing turnkey plants for woven plastic sacks, Starlinger textile packaging soon faced issues of production waste and its reuse. By developing and marketing recycling lines, we at recycling technology enhance the ecological and economical sustainability of our customers. Innovation has become a way of life, as close touch with the market drives the development of high-quality products and new technologies that further our customers‘ success. We support customers with comprehensive knowledge and experience, both technological and with regard to markets and applications. As a result, we are able to develop, finance, implement and service complete projects.

In keeping with our emphasis on research and development, we foster and challenge our highly motivated and internationally active employees, whom we consider our company‘s finest assets. Transparency and confidence characterise our relations with suppliers and other partners. As a family-owned enterprise established in 1835, we place a high value on long-term success for our company and those with whom we do business.

Our customers are as diverse as their recycling requirements are varied.
We are backed by decades of worldwide experience in marketing, engineering and servicing recycling lines. This extra measure of customer-orientation enables us to develop our lines with varying regional requirements in mind -- including differences in polymers, additives, production processes, throughput quantities and industries. As a multinational and multilingual team, we keep in touch directly in our customers‘ own languages.
