Among the many machinery and equipment manufacturers exhibiting at the Plastics Recycling Show Europe, taking place at RAI Amsterdam on 24 and 25 April 2018, EREMA and WiPa will showcase new specialist plastic recycling technology. WiPa will feature its new WPP flat die press pelletiser and EREMA will present its new business Unit Powerfil as well as the ReFresher, a new anti-odour technology.
The new POWERFIL business unit of EREMA offers both the SW RTF partial surface backflush filter system and the Laserfilter as individual components. Customers can upgrade their existing extrusion plant from any supplier by adding one of the EREMA melt filters. The efficient interplay of the innovative ReFresher technology with the proven Intarema TVEplus machine makes it possible to obtain odour-optimised recycled pellets directly from contaminated post-consumer material. The TVEplus extruder system of EREMA’s Intarema plant counteracts the development of odours caused by wood, paper, rubber and silicone contaminants by vaporising them out in the preconditioning unit and discharging them during extrusion. The following thermal-physical cleaning process in the ReFresher eliminates odours caused by low volatile, high molecular substances. EREMA says these two cleaning stages open additional markets for post-consumer recycled pellets for use in automobile interiors or inside homes. Visitors can see the new EREMA technology on Stand C28 at PRS Europe 2018.
The new WPP flat die press pelletiser from WiPA allows automatic pelletising for a diverse range of materials including plastics. Automatic distance adjustment between the pelletiser’s rollers and the die surface make it possible to alter pellet quality during operation, as well as to generate homogenous final pellet quality from various input materials. Pre-configured programs enable a variable material distribution between the rollers and variable material strokes in the die ensure constant pellet quality. Visitors can see the new WiPA WPP flat die press pelletiser on Stand D5 at PRS Europe 2018.
Among more than 90 companies and industry organisations that have already confirmed their presence as exhibitors at PRS Europe 2018 are Aimplas, Albis Plastics, Buhler Sortex and NRT, Cross Wrap, Etllinger, Hellweg Maschinenbau, Imerys, Krauss Maffei Berstoff, Lindner Recyclingtech, Pellenc ST, Plasgran, Plastic Recycling Van Werven, RPC BPI Recycled Products, Sesotech, Starlinger, Suez, Tomra Sorting, Vanden Recycling, Veolia Polymers and WEIMA Machinenbau.
The Plastics Recycling Show is a pan-European, free-to-attend exhibition and a conference designed for plastics recycling professionals. It brings together key players from the plastics and recycling sectors to showcase innovative technology, share best practice, network and do business. The PRS Europe conference examines a wide range of the latest industry themes including plastics recycling technology and innovation, materials, the regulatory background and the dynamic economics of plastics recycling.
Winners of the first Plastics Recycling Awards Europe will also be announced at The Plastics Recycling Show Europe on 25 April 2018.
