How Repro-Flex works

Feeding (1)
With belt conveyor: Feeding of scraps is easy and automatically controlled (the conveyor automatically starts/stops depending on the amount of material input)
Feeding (2)
Film-on-rolls can be fed with nip roll feeder at the same time
Cutting and Compacting
Cutter compactor with rotary knives & direct feeding to extruder :
Cuts, dries and compacts the material which enables a fast and stable feeding from the compactor directly into the extruder
Two-zone degassing (double-vented degasification) : Able to process films with larger printed area and some water content
Screen change with dual channel system :
For non-stop operation and prevents material from leaking
Hot die face pelletizer :
Produces high quality plastic pellets for reprocessing
The plastic pellets can be put directly back into the production line such as blown film extrusion and pipe extrusion

High Performance Recycling Machine

Drip tape pelletizer reprocess the plastic tape

POLYSTAR’s high-efficiency, one-step plastic recycling machine Repro-Flex is designed for the reprocessing plastic drip tape, soft irrigation tape, PE polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE), and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material.

This cutter-integrated pelletizing system eliminates the need for pre-cutting the materials and requires less space and energy consumption while producing high-quality plastic pellets at a productive rate.

Advantages of Drip Tape Recycling Machine

Easy material feeding

The waste material enters the machine from the belt conveyor (for film scraps and rigid plastic regrind) and the nip roll feeder (such as drip tape rolls, film rolls, etc.) An extra silo tank can also be added to store and feed pre-crushed drip tape. The feeding is controlled automatically based on how full the cutter compactor is. The cutter compactor then cuts, dries and compacts the material into a semi-molten condition (just below the agglomeration point), which is optimal for the extrusion process that follows. The cutter compactor then feeds the material directly and consistently into the extruder screw.

Higher output capacity

The integration of the cutter compactor and extruder ensures extremely fast and stable feeding, the tangentially connected extruder is continuously filled with pre-compacted material. This results in a much higher production output comparing to other types of recycling systems on the market

Higher pellets quality

The stable material feeding together with the hot die face pelletizer produce round-shaped, uniformed size pellets that have higher value and reusability ratio (extrusion processes).
