Sabert Europe in Nivelles, Belgium has ordered its second IRD-Infrared Dryer for crystallising and drying PET flakes from Kreyenborg Plant Technology GmbH & Co. KG.
Sabert recycles its in-house PET waste on existing vacuum thermoforming lines, to produce for packaging. Company officials decided to invest in IRD technology to increase throughput, for process stabilisation and consistent quality
It marked the second Kreyenborg Infrared Dryer Sabert has purchased in recent months.
The IRD installed at Sabert crystallises and dries the PET within 15 minutes. Several heating zones automatically regulate to a present temperature.
