ADG Solutions will market Italian plastic recycling equipment

ADG Solutions provides range of equipment to recyclers of post-consumer and post-industrial plastic scrap as well as process expertise designed to help them maximize efficiency and produce the highest yield at the lowest cost.

Lorandi Silos has been working with stainless steel since 1952, first by making wine tanks, then containers and machinery for the food and the chemical industries and more recently silos for bulk powders, pellets and flake. The company’s product line also includes smaller capacity bins and containers, mixing silos, air separation systems, weighing systems and pneumatic and mechanical conveying systems.

“Bringing the Lorandi product line to the United States allows ADGS to offer recyclers some really exceptional technology,” says Sandy Guthrie, president of ADG Solutions. “All of their equipment is well designed and well built, but I’m particularly excited about their mixing silos, separation technology and weigh systems. These products will be installed in our facility near Atlanta and will be available for testing and evaluation this fall. These are terrific additions to our equipment portfolio.”

Available in capacities from 350 to 30,000 liters (12.4 to 1,060 cubic feet), the Lorandi mixing silos combine temporary storage for pellets and regrind with vertical auger mixing. New material enters the silo at the bottom and is lifted though the resin and deposited on top. Load cells under the base of the silos are connected to an electronic control system that can weigh material as it enters or leaves the container, allowing for accurate proportioning and or batching into shipping containers.

Lorandi equipment will be stocked and serviced in Tucker, says ADG Solutions, which says it has been in business for more than 10 years, providing custom systems for washing, size reduction, densifying, extrusion, filtration, pelletizing and handling of plastic scrap materials.
