Title: Size Reduction Options for Reclaim of Extruded Scrap

Description:

Producers of extruded products have three main options when dealing with their own internal scrap…re-use, sell or dispose of.  For each of these three, some type of size reduction of the scrap is either required or of some benefit.  We will begin with an overview of different shredding technologies typically used for extruded product.  Single shaft/rotor shredding and/or granulation systems will be reviewed in both vertical and horizontal configurations.  Features and benefits of each technology will be outlined in detail.

Abstract:

Producers of extruded products have three main options when dealing with their own internal scrap…re-use, sell or dispose of.  For each of these three, some type of size reduction of the scrap is either required or of some benefit.  We will begin with an overview of different shredding technologies typically used for extruded product.  Single shaft/rotor shredding and/or granulation systems will be reviewed in both vertical and horizontal configurations.  Features and benefits of each technology will be outlined in detail.

 

We will then look at a variety of extruded products, such as film, fiber, sheet, non-woven, profile and pipe, as well as blow molded containers and extruder purgings.  We will look at the options for size reduction for either disposal or reprocessing, including the integration of conveyors, metal separation/detection and granulators.  While focusing on the shredding step, we will discuss the best technology for each product and give examples for typical size reductions systems.

 

We will also review the very latest in shredding technology, which features systems designed to size reduce extruded product down to the optimum size for reprocessing, all in one system and while maintaining high production rates.
