Tecnova will be present at Interplastica 2018 in Hall 2.3 Stand E16.
Tecnova is always at the forefront in recycling equipment for all polymeric materials, with the realization of extrusion lines suitable for all needs of the industry, from laboratory systems up to lines of 2 ton/hour capacity that can process the various types of plastics, from the traditional ones to biopolymers.
The company is active worldwide, without forgetting the Italian market which continues to give great results thanks to the many lines installed that continue to work efficiently.
The recycling of plastics is constantly evolving; for this reason, it is essential for a recycler to have the best performing and reliable equipment over time.
Today the process requirements are driving more and more frequently towards the recycling, processing and exploitation of materials with a high degree of contamination and moisture, as in the case of strongly printed products.
The double degassing systems of Tecnova are able to remove moisture up to values of 7-8%, which can rise up to 10% thanks to the new degassing system developed and called VTS (Vacuum Twin Stuffer). As part of a constant research aimed at continuous improvement of single-screw extrusion lines, it has been developed the natural degassing VTS system with automatic restore of the melted material; this component is able to double the capacity of the lines, both single and double vent, processing material with high moisture content.
This results in a proportional increase of the hourly productivity of the lines with equal amounts of material being processed. With these solutions, it is therefore possible to remove a 8 – 10% of moisture.
Development of new solutions
The Tecnova technologies have been strengthened over the years, following the evolution of the market and customers’ requirements: on one hand the need to process more and more contaminated materials and on the other to obtain a product that can be used in a convenient and competitive way to manufacture new products.
Another critical issue is also the fact that many companies, optimizing their internal processes, are able to reuse internally the recycled material less contaminated.
Savings and reliability
An aspect not to be overlooked is the energy savings of Tecnova extrusion lines, obtained by installing top quality electrical motors and components.
Furthermore the Tecnova lines are versatile, reliable and with a mechanical configuration which facilitates access to the different parts during maintenance.
