Ansfelden, Austria — According to recycling machine producer Erema, the new Intarema® plant generation was an instant success in the marketplace as soon as it was launched at the K 2013 show. Now, some 12 months later, over 150 Intarema systems featuring the newly developed and worldwide patented counter current technology have already been shipped and installed. Some of the very first customers report on their initial successes with this innovation as follows.
Thomas Rauscher, Product Manager Cast Film Extrusion & MDO of SML Maschinengesellschaft mbH, Austria: „The new Intarema 1108 T is a considerable improvement in terms of the amount of edge trim to be processed. It is impressive to see that although it is virtually the same size as its predecessor you can process one third more material without any reduction in the quality of the recycled pellets produced.“
Amir Karim, Vice President Business Development at Polykar Industries Inc, Canada, about Intarema 1310 TVEplus with SW RTF melt filter: „We were already very satisfied with our TVEplus system from 2011, particularly with the quality of the pellets, high process stability and the excellent, competent service provided by Erema. Based on this positive experience we decided in favour of an Intarema in the course of extending our capacity.“
Heinz Winkler, Managing Director of Copo-Plast Heinrich Winkler e.K., Germany, on Intarema 1310 TVEplus with Laserfilter: „We are particularly pleased with the magnificent degassing performance and the consistently good throughput. The Laserfilter is of course absolutely perfect when it comes to impurities such as paper, for example.“
Kevin Walsh, COO of Belgotex Floorcoverings (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, about Intarema 1007 TE: „The Intarema system is a boon for Belgotex! It enables us to reduce the PP scrap rates from our carpet production process to close to zero. The new system from Erema has taken our process into a whole new dimension.“
Edgar Wallace, Managing Director at Preston Plastics Ltd, UK: „This new machine (Intarema 1714 TVEplus) gives us nearly three times the capacity we had previously. It means we can continue to meet the increased demand we are seeing from the plastics industry, both in terms of volume and the types of plastic being recycled, diverting thousands of tonnes of waste from landfill and incineration. These are exciting times for the business as we plan for the future.“
Ken Oswin, Operations Director Recycled Products at BPI Recycled products, UK, on Intarema 2018 TVEplus with two Laserfilters: „We are delighted that the trials went better than expected and we witnessed the line running 2,450 kg/h. The machine looks amazing. Erema is a first-class company providing a brilliant machine which we know will give us many years of production and provide great value for money.“
And finally Miroslav Angelov, founder and owner of Megaport Ltd., Bulgaria, on Intarema 1714 TVEplus with Laserfilter: „We are satisfied above all with the exceptionally good quality of the pellets which has also enabled us to increase the capacity of our blown film extruder by up to 30 percent. The price/performance ratio is remarkable and operating the system is very easy. The efficiency of the new Laserfilter is also very impressive.“
