A Japanese polyethylene (PE) film recycler has installed one more Polystar HNT-120V recycling machine to process 400-500kg/h low density and high density PE (LDPE and HDPE) post-industrial film waste.
The industrial waste is collected from local plastic factories that produce various types of bags, both printed and non-printed. A new facility was built specifically to install the new Polystar machine.
The recycler with 25 year of history is one of the most renowned and government-approved recyclers in Japan, who receives subsidiary from the government annually for the environmentally friendly job it has carried out over the past two decades.
"Our operators find it so easy to operate compared to other recycling machines we've purchased in the past," said the Japanese recycler. "It's just so simple to run and do maintenance on. We even self-installed this new line without having to have Polystar's engineer coming over to Japan."
This was the third Polystar installation in Japan in the past four months. Besides HDPE and LDPE film recyclers, there are also other recycling applications such as CPP, BOPP, laminated PE+PET and others.
In order to process the PE & PP based heavy-printed film waste material efficiently, Polystar improve the technology of dual piston hydraulic screen changer filtration system and ensure the efficient pressure release from the printed ink and moisture.
