Purgings-be-gone with new system

Instead of shipping purged lumps and clumps to landfills, processors can use the Purging Recovery System from Maguire. It’s a two-stage system that first slices or planes hard lumps of plastic into small pieces, then reduces the pieces to uniform, high-quality regrind. Maguire sells the entire system, including the second-stage compact granulator, for $28,000.

. It’s a two-stage system that first slices or planes hard lumps of plastic into small pieces, then reduces the pieces to uniform, high-quality regrind. Maguire sells the entire system, including the second-stage compact granulator, for $28,000. Since purgings typically range in size from 1-10 lb and may be generated at a rate of several to dozens per shift in a custom molding operation, a processor using resin that costs $1.00/lb. could potentially reclaim hundreds of dollars worth of raw material per week.

The system is said to be easy to operate, with a sound enclosure keeping noise to a minimum. Maguire Products, Aston, PA, USA; +1 610-459-4300; www.maguire.com
