Herbold film wash line starts up for WKR Walter Austria

To extend its facility in Wels, Austria, WKR Walter has chosen a complete integrated solution from HERBOLD Meckesheim GmbH, based in Meckesheim/Germany. The key component of the plant is the latest generation of HERBOLD's VWE pre-wash system, hydrocyclone separation and a twin centrifugal drying step. WKR Walter recycles post consumer film.

The infeed of the line is baled material, sourced from Germany, based on DSD 310 spec. It provides for the efficient cleaning of the material a hydrocyclone separation step as a key requirement for the production of high-grade recyclate for manufacturing of thin-walled film . HERBOLD and WKRWalter are looking back to a long-term cooperation. All the three existing wash lines have been upgraded by HERBOLD Meckesheim GmbH with hydrocyclones in the last couple of years, having allowed WKRWalter to upgrade the quality of the washed flakes to a new level. For the first time WKRWalter is able to operate a film wash line without the need of a thermal drying unit, thanks to the efficient operation of the HERBOLD centrifuge.

The new line is designed for 10.000 t/year, WKR Walter is already discussing a further expansion.
