The experience gained from IFE's diverse areas of activity is of great advantage in plastics processing, as similar process steps are required. IFE thus offers flexible solutions for fractionation, metal separation, screening and cleaning here as well. Special features of the materials such as low bulk densities, dust generation or electrostatic charging can be optimally taken into account by adapting the processing equipment.
In PET recycling it is necessary to remove all foreign components (e.g. metal closures, labels, incorrect throws) from the shredded PET fraction. If the required raw material is not available in a clean form, the temperature control during the melting process can be endangered or the die of the extruder can clog.
The IFE magnetic technology product range offers a number of suitable technical processes for efficiently separating ferrous and non-ferrous contaminants.
