INTAREMA® K

Fully automatic recycling system for edge trim

 

Compactly designed, no operating personnel needed most of the time, top quality end products. INTAREMA® K transforms edge trim efficiently and carefully into high quality, clean pellets. Up to 100% of pellets returned to the production process. Saves raw material as well as disposal costs. That is how this investment practically pays for itself within the shortest time.

Cutting edge: impressive technology
This extremely high level of quality and cost effectiveness is possible thanks to the combination of three EREMA solutions: Counter Current technology, Smart Start operating concept and ecoSAVE® energy saving technology

Technical benefits

 
  • Fully automatic edge trim system including automatic throughput adjustment and standby mode
  • No pre-cutting of the edge trim necessary
  • Maximum flexibility: feeding possible via cyclone, roll feeder or conveyor belt
  • Short extruder ensures careful material processing with minimum thermomechanical stress
  • Enhanced material intake, greater flexibility and higher throughput rates thanks to Counter Current technology

Economic benefits

 
  • High-quality end product: up to 100% of pellets returned to the production process

  • Minimum labour required thanks to fully automatic operation

  • Maximum user-friendliness thanks to intelligent Smart Start operating concept

  • Short amortisation period

  • Low production costs thanks to high energy efficiency: ecoSAVE® reduces energy consumption and lowers CO2 emissions

  • Minimum service and maintenance

  • Compact, space-saving design saves floor space

  5. EXTRUDER:

    In this special, patented extruder (5) the material is melted at an extremely low temperature.

  6. PELLETIZING SYSTEM:

    The material is used to make pellets in an air-cooled pelletising system (6).

Feeding with edge trim is automatic and direct via pipes and cyclone (1). Loose waste material can also be fed into the machine by conveyor belt (2) or feed rollers (3)

In the patented Preconditioning Unit (4) the material is cut, mixed, heated, dried, pre-compacted and buffered.

Next, the tangentially connected extruder with its extremely short screw is filled continuously with hot, pre-compacted material.

The innovative Counter Current technology enables optimised intake action across an extended temperature range. In this special, patented extruder (5) the material is melted at an extremely low temperature and turned into pellets in an air-cooled pelletising system (6).

GROUNDBREAKING INNOVATION

Counter Current technology developed by EREMA changes the direction of rotation inside the cutter/compactor: the plastic material thus moves in the opposite direction to that of the extruder screw. A small change with a big impact: the relative speed of the material in the intake zone, i.e. when passing from the cutter/compactor to the extruder, accelerates so that the extruder acts in the same way as a sharp cutting edge which literally "slices up" the plastic.

The extruder handles more material in a shorter time. Thanks to the enhanced material intake plastic can be processed even at lower temperatures at a high throughput - meaning higher productivity, flexibility and operational reliability

INTAREMA® K COMBINES:

 
counter current
 
 

Counter Current technology

  • Highest process stability through improved material intake ensures constantly high output over a considerably broader temperature range
  • Higher flexibility and operational reliability with a variety of materials
  • Increased throughputs with the same plant size for more productivity
smart start
 
 

Smart Start technology

  • Remarkably easy to operate thanks to logical, clearly structured and simplified handling and ultramodern, ergonomic touch screen display
  • Fewer buttons, more user-friendliness – thanks to high degree of automation including extensive control packages
  • The right recipe for every application – saved processing parameters can be loaded easily and conveniently from the recipe management system at the push of a button
eco save
 
 

ecoSAVE®  technology

  • Lower specific energy requirements thanks to a complete package featuring design and process engineering measures, such as the new direct-drive extruder screw
  • Lower production costs through optimised control technology and high-quality, energy-efficient components such as high-performance motors
  • Additionally, the practical energy display on your operating panel gives you a constant overview of energy consumption at all times, thus enabling you to take specific measures to optimise consumption
  • Reduced CO2 emissions – an important contribution to environmental protection
