The ZS-B MEGAfeed side feeder significantly increases fiber and flake feed rate into the ZSK twin screw extruder, making many plastics recycling processes markedly more economical.
With the ZS-B MEGAfeed side feeder from Coperion, the recycling of plastics reaches a new dimension. The ZS-B MEGAfeed makes the recycling of lightweight, very voluminous recycled flakes and fibers significantly more economical and, in some cases, possible in the first place.
Thanks to the innovative design of the ZS-B MEGAfeed side feeder, plastic recyclate with bulk densities starting as low as 20 kg/m³, which was previously considered feed-limited and therefore not economically recyclable, can be reliably fed in large quantities into the ZSK twin screw extruder.
Both in the recycling of post-industrial waste and in the reprocessing of post-consumer waste, the ZS-B MEGAfeed technology opens up completely new dimensions. The ZS-B MEGAfeed achieves an immense increase in the feeding rate of flakes and fibers from a wide variety of plastics (e.g. PA, PE, PET, PP), and thus significantly higher throughput rates - in both mechanical and chemical recycling.
Using the innovative ZS-B MEGAfeed side feeder, plastic recyclate with bulk densities starting as low as 20 kg/m³, long considered intake-limited and thus not worth recycling, can be reliably fed in large quantities into the ZSK twin screw extruder and be concurrently recycled and compounded.
• Significant increase in the economic efficiency of recycling plastic flakes and fibers
