Metering of plastic regrind

The challenge.

Metering of PET film regrind with bad flow characteristics and tendency for bridge building with low bulk density.

The goal.

Fully automatic metering of the regrind into the conveyor system. Safe material supply to the subsequent process step. Avoiding of material blockages in the conveyor line. Dust reduction.

Our process.

Material exhaustion containers with special agitator for the continuous supply of the regrind into the conveyor system. Hopper loaders with special container geometry to avoid material supports / material bridges. Conveying cycle by Maxsonde and timing. Hopper loaders with forced outlet to pass the light material to the subsequent process system. Conveying system with central filter and dust collector with visual full signal. Adapted conveyor cable cross-sections with riser drainage and adjustable vacuum power.

Your benefits.

  • Avoiding of mechanical stress on the equipment due to fluctuating material loadings
  • Fully adjustable conveyor system
  • No container bulging due to hammer blows (bridge breaker)
  • Ensures continuous supply of material, no unsolicited production stops
  • Turn-key solution
