Foamalite relies on infrared for drying and crystallizing
The Infrared Drum IRD is applied for the in house recycling at Foamalite. Thereby the crystallization of the very thick-walled PET Flakes, which are generated with sheet extrusion, is particularly sophisticated. "Here the Kreyenborg Infrared Drum IRD is the ideal solution and provides for all future contingencies", so Philip Jones. By means of the flexibility of the machine concept in future also PET bottle flakes may be predried and crystallized.
Meanwhile the Kreyenborg Infrared Drum IRD is applied worldwide. Drying and crystallization of PET are the special focus in the application. However this system is also best suited for the processing of other plastics and bulk goods.
