Recycling

Our pelletizers allow reusable wastes such as sprues from injection molding, film trimming wastes, flakes from shredded PET bottles or battery housings, etc. to be recycled. The old material is first shredded, washed and predried and then goes into a drier before being pelletized again.

Direct recycling into the finished product – without the intermediate step of pelletizing (e.g. PET bottle flakes into deep-drawn film) – is also possible with our special screen changers.

If powder is required as the finished product of a recycling process, then our pulverizing systems are the right choice.
