Herbold Plastcompactor features new optional force feed system

The new force feeder mechanism uses an auger to convey material at a higher and more consistent feed rate.

Herbold has introduced a new optional force feed mechanism for its popular line of HV Plastcompactor Densifiers used to agglomerate low bulk density material. The resulting agglomerate has a higher bulk density than the source material with improved flow characteristics. According to Herbold, while traditional gravity feeding is appropriate in some cases, it is not ideal for materials like carpet fiber, film or polystyrene.

Label remover for plastic bottle recycling

Label remover for plastic bottle recycling

Designed specifically for plastic recycling plants, the Herbold Meckesheim Label Remover removes full-wrap polyvinyl chloride (PVC) labels from plastic PET bottles. Until now, removing and separating wraparound labels has been impossible at the prewash stages of bottle recycling, and difficult and costly at subsequent stages. Now, these tightly clinging labels can be removed in a single step, early in the process and without the expense of generating extra steam. This new machine also separates bottles that are stuck together, reducing labour costs for manual separation.

Horizontally-fed granulators

Horizontally-fed granulators

These horizontally-fed granulators are designed to be quieter and more efficient than gravity-fed size-reduction equipment. Designated the SB Series, five new models will granulate containers made of PET and other recyclable plastics at rates of up to seven tons per hour. These units use horizontal feeding screws, which force materials from the hopper to an adjacent cutting chamber at a steady, even pace and result in higher throughput – up to 30 to 50 percent compared to similar-size gravity-fed cutting chambers, according to the manufacturer.
