Recycling technology for heavily printed materials

  • INTAREMA 1007 TVEplus system features throughput of 300-350 kg/h
  • Based on globally patented Counter Current technology
  • Live demonstration at #chinaplas

Erema’s INTAREMA system, featuring the Counter Current technology, was one of the highlights at #chinaplas 2015. An INTAREMA 1007 TVEplus system with a melt filter SW4/104 RTF and a throughput of 300-350 kg/h demonstrated the high efficient recycling of heavily printed LDPE materials.

Based on globally patented Counter Current technology

At K 2013, which was also the year of the company’s 30th anniversary, Erema launched a plant system with a new core technology: INTAREMA. The features of this system can be derived from its name which comes from INverse + TAngential + eREMA and is based on the globally patented Counter Current technology. The company has already sold 150 systems worldwide since its introduction in 2013.

Inverse-tangential configuration increases process stability and throughput

The innovation takes place in the interface area of the cutter/compactor and extruder. To date the worldwide technical standard has been a system in which the material in the cutter/compactor moved in the direction of the extruder. The difference with the Counter Current system is that the material spout in the cutter/compactor is now reversed and thus moves against the direction of the extruder. The result of this inverse-tangential configuration is increased process stability and, at the same time, considerably higher throughput.
