Plastic recycling lines Tandem
The TANDEM technology applied to the recycling of heavily printed, contaminated and high humidity plastic materials guarantees the excellent quality of the granule with a notable energy savings in comparison with conventional recycling systems that foresee the re-extrusion of the material.
The plant is composed of a COMPAC unit and two extruders arranged in succession.
The short, non-vented primary extruder and the larger diameter secondary extruder allow for a reduction of the cutting forces (“shear rate”) and stress less the melted material.
– Line suitable for the recycling for heavily printed, high humidity and contaminated materials.
– High performance degassing chamber for removal of up to 10 times more gas and humidity in the melted material compared to other systems.
– Possibility to have double filtration.
– Possibility to have the first extruder as a single screw and the second a twin screw.

Tandem PLUS lines to give more “added” value to waste materials
Tandem PLUS line allows to have all the advantages of the classic TANDEM plus the possibility to improve the characteristics of material during the upcycling process. This solution is ideal for the production of compounds for special applications.
The Tandem PLUS line provides the combination of the first extruder as a single screw and the second a twin screw.
The regeneration and “upcycling” process begins with gravimetric dosing system to feed the materials in a more precise and accurate way to the COMPAC unit which has the function of shredding and densifying the waste material to be recycled. From the COMPAC unit, the material is pushed with constant flow from the feeding screw into the first extruder.
Connected to the first extruder there is a self-cleaning screen changer, installed to remove the contaminants present in the melted polymer. At the exit of the screen changer, the melt is “degassed” by the high performance vacuum chamber to avoid defects in the granules such as “air bubbles”.
The patented Gamma Meccanica high performance vacuum system allows for removal of up to 10 times more gas and humidity in the melted material compared to other systems. The polymer is “enriched” with master, carbonate and various additives inside the twin-screw extruder. The upcycling process ends with the cutting of the melted material inside the TDA or TI pelletizer systems.
