Fakuma: Erema, Hall A6 Booth 6314 With the founding of the Powerfil business unit, Erema, the manufacturer of plastics recycling systems, extends its portfolio and now also offers the proven melt filter as individual components for existing extrusion plants. Technical modifications were made to the filter systems prior to the foundation of the business unit.

Laserfilter for PET With the Erema Laserfilter, a continuous filter system with screen fineness of 70µm will be in operation for the first time. A gentler filtration process has been made possible by rheological optimisation of the support breaker plate, enabling a reduction of flow resistance.Inquiries for the Laserfilter, which is already established in the post-consumer field, are also increasing from customers in the PET sector. The reason for this is that the increased use of rPET in end products requires high process stability despite higher degrees of contamination at times. The Laserfilter processes input material with a degree of contamination of >1% without any difficulty. The functional principle avoids dead spaces and makes for short dwell times which in turn prevents “black spots” with PET. Thanks to the newly developed discharge unit, melt losses are reduced from the normal 1 to 2 % with piston filters down to a tenth. “At Erema it has always been clear: melt filters are a decisive component in reaching top standard material quality. With Powerfil, recyclers and producers can benefit from Erema’s 30 years of development work and upgrade their existing extrusion unit quickly and easily,” says Robert Obermayr, outlining the advantages. The new business unit will be launched on the Erema stand at the Fakuma show.
