INTAREMA® T or TE. Two different series that are based on the same compact INTAREMA® recycling system featuring a short single-screw extruder. Including, of course, the INTAREMA® top technologies Counter Current, Smart Start and ecoSAVE®. For more efficiency and productivity in plastics recycling.
INTAREMA® T without extruder degassing: ideal for non-printed edge trim, cutting waste, rolls, loose leftover film and regrind material.
INTAREMA® TE with double degassing: for flexible recycling of slightly printed production and industrial waste and technical plastics.
INTAREMA® T, TE
Feeding (1) is automatic according to customer requirements. In the Preconditioning Unit (2) the material is cut, mixed, heated, dried, compacted and buffered. Next, the tangentially connected extruder is filled continuously with hot, pre-compacted material. The innovative Counter Current technology enables optimised intake action across an extended temperature range.
In the extruder screw (3) the material is plasticised, homogenised and, if necessary, degassed in the degassing zone 4 (TE). The melt is then cleaned in the fully automatic, self-cleaning filter (5). Following this, the melt is conveyed to the respective tool (6) (e.g. pelletiser) under extremely low pressure.
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.
As a result 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
