PET Washing Systems In Demand

PET Washing Systems In Demand
12 Jul 2022  |
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 percent 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.

Messe München counted some 119,000 visitors during the five days of the trade fair – half of them from abroad, from 155 countries. 2984 exhibitors from 59 nations vied for visitors’ attention on the 260,000 square meters of exhibition space. 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.

The biggest event of the year is still to come: the K 2022 in Düsseldorf. Here, Herbold Meckesheim will be present with their salesman and machines to familiarize partners and prospective customers 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. In the process, the modern machines for plastics processing will also become tangible in the literal sense of the word at the machine manufacturer’s booth B34 in Hall 9 from Wednesday, October 19, to Wednesday, October 26.
