The BKG FlexDisc, a new product by Nordson Corporation that significantly enhances melt filtration in the recycling of post-consumer PET, has been shortlisted in the 2021 Plastics Recycling Awards Europe competition in the category “Recycling Machinery Innovation of the Year.”
Two to four FlexDiscs can be combined in a filter stack, providing filtration area far greater than is available with standard flat screens without increasing machine size or weight. It yields finer filtration, prolongs filter life, and reduces backflush volume.
“Our BKG FlexDisc has been shown to enhance the productivity of PET recycling while saving costs and improving the quality of the finished product,” said Oliver Brandt, Market Development Manager, Recycling.
Recommended for bottle-2-bottle recycling and rPET fiber production, the FlexDisc is designed for use with piston-driven backflush screen changers, such as Nordson’s HiCon V-Type 3G system. Nordson has named the combination V3G + FlexDisc = rPET Power².
The Plastics Recycling Awards Europe 2021 winners will be announced on 5 November, during the second day of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe taking place at the RAI Amsterdam.
