Polystar to demonstrate Repro-Air recycling system at Taipei Plas 2016

At Taipei Plas 2016, Polystar will demonstrate its Repro-Air recycling machine designed for high density and low density polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE) film producers.

Repro-Air is a compact solution for reprocessing HDPE and LDPE film scraps. It allows start-up or changeover of film rolls (film-on-roll) without the need for pre-cutting, edge-trim waste, T-shirt bag bundles (cut- offs) from in-house production. Lightly printed film can also be recycled.

Repro-Air (economic type – RP120) has an average output of 30-80kg/h, 800-1,000kg per day. Through the nip roll feeder, the recycling machine can process multiple film rolls simultaneously. T-shirt bag bundles (cut-offs) from bag making process can also be thrown directly into the recycling machine without the need for pre-crushing.

This air-cooled plastic recycling line does not require any water consumption and takes up little space, so that it can fit right next to or in between blown film machines. The pellets produced by the hot die face pelletizer are 100% dry and can be put directly back into the production line for immediate reprocessing.

After the hot die-face cutting, the air-cooled pellets are transported into a spiral device for further pellet cooling and separation. This special design allows the machine to effectively pelletize HDPE and LDPE with minimal material degradation.

This plastic recycling machine is recommended for packaging film producers of different types of film and bags, such as flat bags, commercial bags, garbage bags, food packaging film, shrink film and many others.
