Learn about how poor material handling methods impact the quality of recycled plastics and how to fix the problem.
About This Webinar
Mechanical recycling processes require specialized equipment like grinders, wash lines, dryers, and sorters. More often than not, little thought is given to the material handling steps that connect all of that equipment in a recycling plant. Just like the rest of the plant, there are specific ways of moving flake and other regrind around your plant. Using the wrong material handling technologies, such as those that were developed for pellet material, will usually result in poor product quality and unreliable system performance. Learn about the special techniques and components used by Pelletron in recycling plants all over the world.
