It uses microwave generators to treat the flake for its cleaning process. Cycle ঞmes are approxi- mately 30–45 min. PURe is a dual-reactor process that cycles between the reactors in a semi-conঞnuous manner. The treated flake is then ready for processing into sheet through the HVTSE twin screw process. There are mulঞple sizes available ranging from 1,100 lb/hr thru 4,400+ lb/hr. In North America, the technology is avail- able through Processing Technologies Inter- naঞonal LLC. | 39 0331 398 111 Bole-to-Bag Technology For Making Woven-Tape FIBCs From rPET Starlinger & Co. Gesellscha[ M.b.H. | Booth W6885 New technology developed by Austrian-based manufacturer Starlinger & Co. GmbH (U.S. office is American Starlinger-Sahm, Fountain Inn, South Carolina) can produce woven tape fabric directly from PET bole flakes. With Starlinger's "bole to bag" technology, woven bags are made directly from recycled material, and these bags are in turn recyclable. Star- linger says no virgin material is needed in the producঞon process. Current applicaঞons are big bags/FIBCs (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) for storing bulk materials and rPET PP*STAR pinch boom bags for packag- ing products such as dry pet food, ferঞlizer, sugar, flour or rice. At NPE, Starlinger is exhibit- ing an rPET FIBC at Booth W6885. Starlinger is also high- lighঞng its odor reducঞon technology that reported- ly produces a "smell-im- proved" regranulate that can be used in a wide range of applicaঞons. The three-step procedure (material preparaঞon, degassing and post-treat- ment) eliminates even deeply embedded odors, according to the compa- ny. The method works without addiঞves. At NPE2018, a "smelling table" with smelling staঞons allows booth visitors to smell the dif- ference between input material and smell- improved regranulate.
