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.

Compact, space-saving design saves floor space
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).
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
