ORIGIN: Post-consumer liquid container bottles (milk, juice) jars (detergent) food trays, industrial bins, car fuel tanks
PRE- PROCES: Generally, come from a separation and washing system
REMARKS: Is a high bulk density material, easier to feed
TURN KEY LINE:
Proven screw geometry perfect melting/dispersion of very low MFI fraction
ICMA's line FOR ALL PROCESSING TASK:
In Film recycling ICMA has addressed some major issues one of which is the feeding of the extremely light film materials. Such compelling task is achieved by a patented system that allows to continuously feed the extruders by also granting a high production yield.
Another advantage of our "one-step" approach is also to avoid expensive and "energy hungry" boiler units upstream frequently proposed by other suppliers.Contact us
In very specific cases cascade design is advisable, for instance, when a very tight filtering process is required before the compounding stage can be started.
Here we recommend to design the line using 2 co-rotating extruders, the first to execute the efficient degassing and filtering tasks and he second for compounding . An upstream single extruder may also be considered although the overall performance level will be affected.Contact us
Several other materials are nowadays finding a new life with our co-rotating extruders. The more common are plastic parts of electrical devices (RAEE) or PET, ABS etc etc .
Just enquire ICMA and come to our Innovation Hub to test your scrap!Contact us
With several lines turn-key or just extruders designed to process bio polymers, ICMA can be the partner of choice to supply a reliable system. Starting in our Innovation Hub with trials to check processability of your formulation.Contact us
Our knowledge in mixing natural fibres and a polyolefin roots back to the early 70’s when ICMA successfully pioneered, first in the World, the process technology for producing a thermoformable sheet for automotive interior trims made of virgin or recycled polypropylene and wood flour.
Today are available compounding and extrusion solutions.Contact us
Water-soluble polymers are also a new frontier in our market with the co-rotating extruders delivering best in class results compared to other technology, for instance by avoiding pre-mix in the material preparation and enabling "one step" process task.Contact us
