Integration of a booster with mixing unit in an existing GDS material dryer
The booster with mixing unit integrated directly over the production plant can now be loaded flexibly, straightforwardly and as required with regranulate and/or virgin material.
For our customer—a large, renowned concern in the plastic packaging solutions sector—changing over the production plants to different raw materials was very time-consuming and involved considerable production downtime in the past. Because the quantities produced in the individual product categories are becoming smaller and smaller requiring more flexibility, the engineers at Eisbär prepared an innovative solution together with the customer.
Customer-specific system solution
A booster mixing unit solution was integrated into the existing production plant with Eisbär GDS material dryer. As a result, the production plant can be supplied from an existing GDS drying hopper on the one hand. For even smaller production quantities, a booster hopper with mixing unit was integrated in addition directly above the production plant. The material change from regranulate and/or virgin material can now be made flexibly, straightforwardly and as required—the time-consuming changing over of the production plants to the different raw materials is no longer required.
