PET washing systems in demand

Modular design of automated plants and recycling lines

Herbold Meckesheim is satisfied with its results after IFAT 2022 in Munich. Despite the current economic uncertainties, the special machine builder has recorded a constant number of incoming orders. After many negotiations, the projects are now seen to get reality – almost 60 % of these projects are located outside Germany.

In addition to individual machine solutions, shredding technology and plastcompactors, dryers and, above all, complete plastic washing lines are the main areas of interest. In the case of the latter, film and PET washing systems continue to be in particularly high demand.

Herbold Meckesheim had focused on this with its range of information for the trade fair and placed washing lines in the spotlight. The hot washing for polyolefins was one of the product innovations presented at the fair. The common base of the recycling lines is a hydrocyclone stage with high density separation. Due to the controllable hot wash, the resulting recyclate qualities are suitable for its use in the food sector. The plant and machine solutions are tested and further developed in the company‘s own technical lab, which is available for customer trials.

The central theme of IFAT 2022 was the circular economy. Accordingly, Herbold Meckesheim had participated largely in the VDMA Plastics Recycling Theme World, which illustrated circular economy and plastics recycling with exhibits, film clips and recyclates at the booth of the Association of German Machine Builders.

At the K 2022 in Düsseldorf, Herbold Meckesheim was also present with its system solutions for automated plants and recycling lines – which, thanks to their modular design, can be quickly and flexibly adapted to customer requirements.
