Introducing the HydroDyn Plastics Washing Line from Vecoplan

Posted by on Feb 27, 2015 in News | 0 comments

VHD

Vecoplan, the world leader in plastics recycling technologies, will introduce their HydroDyn Plastics Washing Line to the North American market at NPE. Held March 23-27 in Orlando, Vecoplan will feature the HydroDyn in their booth #6773 at the show. Proven in European recycling plants and backed by test results, HydroDyn produces cleaner plastic flakes, delivers lower operating costs and is more economical to install and maintain than conventional plastics washing lines.

As the name implies, HydroDyn uses the dynamic properties of water spun in a cyclonic fashion to generate horizontal friction and clean plastic flakes suspended in that water. Innovations in this technology enable the HydroDyn to produce results that are 30% cleaner than conventional washing lines.

In addition to washing the plastic flakes, friction created by centrifugal force in the water also generates heat. Since HydroDyn is a closed loop system, integrating its own water treatment, the reused water process establishes a hot wash system without additional power or gas usage. This combined with Vecoplan’s energy efficient drive systems result in a 25% saving in operating costs including energy consumption, water usage and chemicals.

Also innovative in installation design, HydroDyn is a modular system pre-installed on platforms.

These platforms eliminate the need for onsite bases or other foundation work to support individual pieces of equipment. All components are pre-assembled with piping and electrical wiring included in the platform chassis, as well as built-in drainage for spill water.

HydroDyn’s modular platform units fit on flatbeds or in containers for shipping and once on site are easy to lift and set in place. Simply connect the platform units, plug them in and you’re ready to make money washing plastics. HydroDyn’s modular design also make it easy and economical to retrofit into existing plants or scale-up in size when systems need to be expanded.

Introducing V-ECO Shredders from Vecoplan

 New for 2015, V-ECO shredders feature the latest innovations in size reduction from Vecoplan, the world leader in recycling technologies. Shredders, in the V-ECO series, feature VFD Inverter Drives, “W” Rotors Embedded with 5 Rows of Cutters, Single or Double Rows of Bed Knives, Pneumatic Assist Drop Down Screen Carriages, Hydraulic Lift-Up Cutting Chamber Floors, and Externally Adjustable Cutting Tolerances.

VFD Inverter Drives eliminate gearboxes and fluid couplings, sense tramp metal and stop automatically, match rotor speeds and torque to load volume and material tenacity.

“W” Rotors are equally suited for flexible and fibrous, or rigid and bulky materials. The optimized cutting geometry delivers processing precision, particle size consistency, maximum throughput, and minimizes heat generation.

Single or Double Rows of Bed Knives increase the shredding surface area to produce smaller particle sizes which maximizes screen throughput volumes and minimizes processing time.

Drop Down Screen Carriage, with Pneumatic Assist, makes screen changes fast and easy. Plus delivers quick access to the rotor for cutting insert rotations or replacements, as well as other routine maintenance.

Hydraulic Lift-Up Cutting Chamber Floor provides the safest, quickest and most convenient access to the cutting chamber. Just push a button for clean-outs, material changes or tramp metal removal. No bolts, no alignment, no problems.

Externally Adjustable Bed Knives allow for fast and easy maintenance of cutting efficiency, particularly on thin, flexible materials such as films and synthetic fibers.
