An update to its established TVE series of plastics recycling machinery will let companies re-use or source scrap plastics that contain much higher levels of ink, binding agents, other additives and incidental contaminating materials, according to Erema, a leading manufacturer of plastics recycling machinery.
Erema's TVEplus delivers near-virgin quality pellets even when it's fed plastics loaded with ink or other potential contaminants.
Erema introduced its TVE series of recycling machinery more than a decade ago. These include melt filters placed ahead of a degassing system. The TVE already has proven itself as suitable for handling scrap with large amounts of contaminants at higher production rates and quality than other vented extruders, claims the manufacturer. The TVEplus is the result of modifications of the TVE in design and process engineering that allows an increase in degassing efficiency and an improved homogenization process.
The TVEplus series is available to handle throughputs from 250 to about 2500 kg/hr.
