PET and plastic screening
Screening of plastic to obtain secondary raw materials
Excellent quality in multi-fraction plastic separation
In the processing of rather light materials, such as plastics, Ecostar’s industrial plastic separation equipment and screening machines mark the state of the art as they are capable of achieving high levels of separation in limited space, thus maximizing the value of even the higher quality plastics.
The importance of the screening process in the plastic recycling process
In general, post-consumer plastic packaging is recycled by large companies that process enormous quantities of plastic waste per year. In these processes, different secondary raw materials, such as PET flakes, different granules or SRF (Solid Recovered Fuel) are obtained from non-recyclable packaging. In order to obtain different raw materials it is necessary to use multi-fraction screens able to separate plastics accurately and quickly.
This is why Ecostar has designed a specific technology to process plastics while able to modify the screening section on-site. SWAT (Screening Width Adjustment Technology) can be installed on DDS (Dynamic Disc Screening) screens to quickly modify the screening section according to the operator’s needs.
Finally, Ecostar screens can be equipped with fine sections for the pretreatment of plastics from aggregates and dirt. In the case of multimaterial, like plastic and glass, Ecostar screening solutions can be equipped with more robust discs capable of breaking down glass.
The advantages of Ecostar solutions for the plastic industrial screening
With Ecostar’s plastic material screening solutions, products and materials such as dirt, caps, bottles, and films are removed, for an optimal separation. Moreover, thanks to the anti-clogging and anti-wrapping system, downtime is significantly reduced. Ecostar screens can process up to 20 T/H of PET and plastics, even wet, in fractions of 20, 50, 100, 150, and 200mm.
The best technology for screening plastic
SWAT (Screening Width Adjustment Technology) is Ecostar’s patented technology developed for the screening of PET and plastic. It can be installed on DDS screeners in order to quickly change the screening section on-site according to the customer’s production needs. The installation can also be carried out on screeners that are already operational. Depending on the positioning of the SWAT discs, different screening sections can be set up in a few minutes, from 200 mm to 150 mm or from 200 mm to 100 mm.
