Family-run OKUV Blaimschein GmbH located in St. Marien near Linz, Austria, is a very successful recycling company based on toll recycling services. Owner Karl Blaimschein has placed his trust in the EREMA brand for over 25 years. Currently using three EREMA recycling systems, OKUV processes various plastics to make recycled pellets again for around 40 companies in Austria.
The recycler‘s customers deliver their properly sorted and clean post-industrial materials, specify their requirements for the recycled pellets to be made from them and OKUV takes care of the entire recycling process. Thanks to the high quality of the recycled pellets produced, the customers can return up to 100% of them to the production process. The spectrum of input materials ranges from PE, PP, PS, PA and PC to ABS – either in the form of films or regrind. If pipes, crates, runners or other injection-moulded parts are supplied whole by the customers they are turned into regrind at OKUV using a shredder and/or a grinder prior to the recycling process.
INTAREMA® increases flexibility once again
The youngest of what are currently three systems from EREMA was delivered in 2015. It is a brand new INTAREMA® 1309 TVEplus® with SW filter. “We made a conscious decision in favour of the TVEplus® system again because this technology has proven its merits at our company – it covers a very broad scope of use. This is precisely what gives us the flexibility we need on a daily basis,” explains Karl Blaimschein, owner of OKUV, “and with the new INTAREMA® we are now even more flexible than before.” The combination of the preconditioning unit and extruder means another benefit for him: “This enables us to admix additives and colour pigments without any additional technical measures and thus prepare plastics exactly according to customer specifications – which we see as a growing trend.”
