Plastic recycling New RMTP system enables circularity of PET for injection moulders
Husky Technologies announced the introduction of its Hypet HPP5e Recycled Melt to Preform system. This development allows the successful integration of a preform injection moulding system with melt decontamination unit — enabling the direct conversion of washed flake to preform.
With one system already running in the field and the second soon to be delivered, the Hypet HPP5e Recycled Melt to Preform (RMTP) system launched by Husky closes the loop for plastic recycling for injection moulders.
The RMTP technology is offered as a module of the company’s Hypet HPP5e high performance system designed to support the closed-loop conversion of washed flake to preform by accepting food approved grade melt from an upstream provider. By eliminating the drying and melting steps associated with traditional rPET preform manufacturing, this solution facilitates the effective production of packaging made from 100 percent rPET material, further supporting the circularity of PET.
By streamlining the process to bypass inhouse rPET pellet production and go directly from washed flake to preform, the new system enables producers to achieve 30 percent energy savings, helping to further lower production costs. In addition, the system is equipped with Husky’s Advantage+Elite real-time proactive, predictive, transparent monitoring solution as a standard feature. Using the industry’s best processing analytics and service expertise, Advantage+Elite connectivity reduces the variability risk associated with running higher levels of post-consumer-resin (PCR), thereby accelerating the shift to manufacture more circular, sustainable packaging with greater stability and assurance.
