Conveying of plastic regrind with screw conveyors

The challenge.

Supplying an extremely cut, extremely lightweight (0.08 kg/dm3) plastic fiber to the extruder.

The goal.

Continuous, consistent feeding and dosing of extremely light, not free-flowing fibers.

Our process.

Pre-compression of the product in a Crammer feeder (stuffing unit) with conical screw. Extruder and dosage-dependent control with variable drive.

Your benefits.

  • Hassle free supply of cut fibers with bad flow characteristics to the extruder
  • Energy savings by eliminating intermediate steps
  • Continuous, constant throughput
