PET- Recycling Solutions in South America: Kreyenborg ir-CLEAN® installed
Achieving suitability for foodstuff without retrofitting the line A PET film or sheet line can be retrofitted with an IR-CLEAN® system made by Kreyenborg GmbH & Co. KG from Senden, Germany, without any problems and, above all, without any time and efforts for reconstruction. Suitability for food production of the semi-finished products and optimization of the production line’s performance are both guaranteed. Recently, these advantageous features have convinced two manufacturers of PET thermoformed trays for foodstuff in South America, who have opted for these ‘Add-on’ modules from Germany for a total of three production lines of a throughput of more than 1,000 kg/h respectively. Now, these plastics processing companies are able to process up to 100% of recycling PET ware and operate on the packaging market with high-quality solutions suitable for food production applications. high decontamination output, FDA and EFSA approvals, a simple and a both energy-efficient and performing process control as well as reduced assembly space make

LKR Increases Capacities With Lindner’s New Cutting System The productivity gains, even for difficult materials such as sheets or pipes, are astonishing.
LKR Increases Capacities With Lindner’s New Cutting System
The productivity gains, even for difficult materials such as sheets or pipes, are astonishing. The company Lohner Kunststoffrecycling GmbH (LKR) in Vechta, Germany, has been recovering plastic waste generated during the production of industrial or consumer goods since 1992. The highly specialised pioneer and full-service provider is now part of the Remondis Group and transforms about 45,000 metric tons of rejects into new material every year – a perfect example of a circular economy. When it comes to shredding, the company relies on Lindner Recyclingtech’s state-of-the-art solutions such as the Micromat 2000. Equipped with the latest Multiplex cutting system, the machine efficiently shreds almost any type of plastic. The productivity gains, even for difficult materials such as sheets or pipes, are astonishing. Today the disposal of production waste is a no go. International discussion is driving medium-sized companies and even large industrial and consumer goods manufacturers to use raw materials more sustainably. And from an economic point of view, it is absurd

PET Sheet Lines: Fit for recycled material thanks to retrofitted line Key components and know-how for plant optimisation in sheet extrusion
PET Sheet Lines: Fit for recycled material thanks to retrofitted line
Key components and know-how for plant optimisation in sheet extrusion The demand for PET packaging sheet, which contains a high proportion of recycled material or is even made of 100% of it, has recently increased enormously due to public discussion and legal requirements. In order to be able to meet these requirements, many processors are confronted with high investment costs for equipment that can process recycled materials. After all, the quality of the end product must be good. An ideal possibility to combine low investment costs with an extended processing window for recycled material is offered by Gneuss Kunststofftechnik GmbH from Bad Oeynhausen with a special retrofit service. One of the companies that has used this service is Cotnyl S.A. from San Martín, thus being the first company in Argentina to obtain local approval to produce packaging made of 100% r-PET. On the one hand, the demand for plastic packaging is constantly increasing worldwide due to changing consumption and consumption habits, especially in the food and

Lindner Recyclingtech: Safely Overcoming the Crisis Thanks to the Successes of Recent Years
Lindner Recyclingtech: Safely Overcoming the Crisis
Thanks to the Successes of Recent Years The current situation suggests a standstill in many places. But that hasn’t stopped the annual financial reports for the year 2019 from being published. Among them is that of the Austrian specialist for waste processing solutions and shredding technology Lindner Recyclingtech. The figures speak for themselves and leave no doubt that the company will overcome the crisis in a positive light. Standing in front of Lindner headquarters, it quickly becomes clear that things are different at the moment. Like everywhere else, information on hygiene regulations and safety measures is displayed next to the omnipresent disinfectant dispenser. Also, due to teams being divided into several locations or working from home, it is quieter in the office building than normal. However, if you listen closely, you will quickly notice that work on the production floors is still in full swing. The group of companies around Lindner Recyclingtech markedly exceeded revenues of €100 million

Lindner Keeps Commissioning Shredders using Modern Tools Nothing’s Impossible Machines are installed despite of COVID-19
Lindner Keeps Commissioning Shredders using Modern Tools
Nothing’s Impossible Machines are installed despite of COVID-19 A new shredder to transform waste into alternative fuels had been ordered and delivered, the facility’s retrofitting was in full swing – and then came the coronavirus lockdown. That was the problem facing the German waste management company Hündgen in Swisttal-Ollheim. But thanks to state-of-the-art communication software and remote service tools, the new Lindner Micromat 2500 is running smoothly and as scheduled. Every single minute that delays the commissioning of a new facility comes with a price tag. This well-known truism poses a challenge to many a company even under normal circumstances. What it means in light of a global crisis is something that Christian Hündgen, CEO and Plant Manager of Hündgen Entsorgungs Gmbh & Co. KG, knows all too well: ‘Our new Lindner Micromat 2500 shredder was delivered in March, when the construction of our facility was well under way. When we were told that due to COVID-19 and the associated travel restrictions, no Lindner service

Capacitance point level detection in liquid naphthalene UWT application of the month
Capacitance point level detection in liquid naphthalene
UWT application of the month Full detection with high process compatibility in chemical plant operation The measurement technology a chemical plant was looking for in his liquid naphthalene tanks has to deal with different temperatures, varying DK values and viscosity. In order to meet these conditions in practice quickly and reliably with a clever solution, the capacitive rod probes of the RFnivo® series from UWT were implemented. Changing process temperatures and caking on the sensor boom In the liquid state, naphthalene is an aggressive substance that quickly corrodes common materials. If it becomes firmer as it cools down, it tends to become heavily attached. For the individual tanks with liquid naphthalene, the system operator therefore needed reliable and robust level monitoring, which can be flexibly adapted to the fluctuating ambient conditions. The chemical manufacturer has several storage tanks that are electrically heated to maintain the melting point of the naphthalene. There is a
