POLYSTAR film recycling line

POLYSTAR’s Repro-Flex was designed for reprocessing polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed.

As the exclusive distributor for POLYSTAR equipment, Applied Machinery can offer a compete film recycling line designed to produce pellets that are ready to insert back into the start of the manufacturing process, while at the same time dramatically cut on film waste that was previously destined for landfill.

POLYSTAR has worked with plastics producers across the globe and is used in more than 102 countries worldwide. The cutter integrated pelletising system eliminates the need for pre-cutting materials, taking up minimal space, while producing plastic pellets at a productive rate. The machine aims to have an output that is 20 per cent higher when compared to traditional feeding methods, with 10 per cent less power consumption. By being able to reprocess plastic materials themselves, producers can reduce their own production costs.

The extruder specialises in post-industrial waste, with blown and cast film producers (HDPE, PP shrink, stretch film), raffia and woven (PP woven bags, non-woven, jumbo bags) and rigid regrind (bottles, pipes, containers) just a few materials that can be reprocessed. A filtration system aims to reduce machine downtime.

The machine offers multiple degassing and filter options, including triple degassing to remove ink and extra humidity from the material, a dosing device for colour masterbatches  and compounds added during the process, filter re-positioning prior to degassing for higher quality pellets and an unvented extruder to ensure minimal change in material property and a higher output.

POLYSTAR’S recycling line also offers a range of other solutions, including the two-stage HNT-VS for heavy printed material, the air-cooled RP120 for PE in-house waste and the TR-B for pre-washed film flakes and a range of other materials.
