New shredder-extruder combination by Pure Loop
At K 2019 a smaller version of the material all-rounder will be demonstrated live in action every day at the Pure Loop stand.
Unlike comparable shredder-extruder recycling machines on the market, the Pure Loop solution requires only two drives, which significantly reduces energy consumption. Heavy, lightweight, high volume and also highly tear-resistant materials can be processed. According to Pure Loop, the machine can process up to 1,500 kilograms per hour.
The conical design of the conveyor screw results in high compaction, which in turn causes ideal preheating of the material while at the same time forcing back oxygen. “The oxidative effect on the material is now low, which is a clear advantage for the quality of the melt and subsequently also for the quality of the recycled pellets. This makes particularly high recycling rates possible,” explains Pure Loop Managing Director Manfred Dobersberger.
The entire ISEC evo series is characterised by straightforward operation and a high degree of automation, and the machines are quickly ready to start processing. This is confirmed by Christian Nimmrichter, one of the people responsible at the writing instrument manufacturer Stabilo for the introduction of the shredder-extruder solution at their Weißenburg site: “This recycling machine has met with a high level of acceptance among our employees right from the start. We were impressed by Pure Loops’s flexibility, design, sound workmanship and excellent project management,” is how he describes his experience. They recycle PP production waste such as sprues and injection splatter. The black caps for all their Stabilo Boss luminous markers are produced using the recycled pellets.
