Cost efficiency in melt filtration
Recyclates of the highest quality are a highly sought-after commodity in the plastics processing industry. In line with demand, stricter requirements are also being placed on the productivity of the recycling systems. The high-performance melt filters from the ERF series from Ettlinger, the centre of competence for recycling in the MAAG Group, are a cost-effective solution for providing corresponding product quantities for the recyclable material cycle. The manufacturer's flagship is the powerful ERF 1000. When processing easy-flowing materials, for example for injection moulding applications, its four rotating, perforated drums can filter up to ten tonnes of plastic melt per hour. The system's benefits include continuous operation in a stable process at consistent pressure and long operating times without filter changes. The very low melt loss in the range of a just few percent as well as the possibility of changing each drum individually and without interrupting production also contribute to the high cost efficiency of the ERF 1000.
High-performance melt filter
Flakes obtained from plastic waste by grinding can be processed directly in the injection molding process if any foreign substances are thoroughly removed from the melt. The associated technology was developed by injection molding machine manufacturer ENGEL, which chose a high-performance melt filter from Ettlinger, a manufacturer belonging to the Maag Group. This continuously ensures the required purity and thus enables consistent product quality at a high level of production efficiency. The elimination of a separate pelletizing step conserves material and reduces energy requirements and CO2 emissions, contributing to even greater sustainability in the recycling of plastics.
