Waste Recycling For Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Production Lines

Waste Recycling For Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Production Lines

The waste recycling and edge-trims recycling takes place with regeneration lines for plastics materials designed and manufactured by Gamma Meccanica S.p.A.
The waste recycling and edge-trims is total, the material is completely reused in the production cycle after being regenerated.
The recycling line transforms the waste into granules which are added to the mix of raw materials in different amounts, based on the characteristics of final product.

Since the cost of raw material is the higher cost, the use of greater amounts of clean regenerated material can bring enormous advantages in terms of reduction of the XPS production costs.
Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. has developed the lines for the regeneration of plastic materials that can produce a product similar to the raw material, with low losses of MFI and that therefore allows the use of a higher percentage of recycled material in the mix of raw materials.
The recycling lines and the grinding and storage machinery are also suitable for recycling of damaged or defective XPS boards, for the recycling of scraps of thermoforming, or EPS products.
Where required, it is possible to use the recycling lines, also for the preparation of compounds, such as coloring master, flame retardant or nucleating production, reducing production costs.
The recycling lines of Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. are suitable for the regeneration of all the foam materials such as XPE, XPP, EPP, XPET and other foams.
