Washing

100 % clean washing

If you want to be able to recycle soiled and heavily soiled plastics such as films, stretch film, hard plastics, packaging, and technical plastics in the most profitable way possible, VecoDyn offers you a high-performance washing system that opens up entirely new possibilities for plastic reprocessing. No system on the market achieves washing results like this. This is a real USP and the basis for optimum profitability. All modules of the individually configurable system are adapted to helping produce a perfect washing and recycling result. You benefit from 100 % cleaner output material which, as high-quality raw material, can be processed further directly in extrusion and granulation processes – at the same time as reducing your process costs by 25 % compared to conventional systems.

VecoTreat

MATERIAL PRE-TREATMENT

The VecoTreat process can be adapted to the customer’s material and process by the several, modular designed VECOPLAN systems and components– the specifications of the output material are adjusted in detail therein.

    PLASTIC STORING UNIT

    The plastic storing unit is a specially designed buffer storage system that ensures a constant feeding of the washing process or the subsequent extruder feed. This levels the process and thus ensures the highest availability and turnout.

  • Washing

    DRY CLEANING UNIT

    The new developed dry cleaning unit cleans the pre-shredded material mechanically so that the contamination degree for the following washing is reduced and subsequently the costs for the reject-disposal are kept at a low cost level.

  • Washing

    OPTICAL SORTING UNIT

    The pre-shredded material is sorted via a belt sorter that can be easily integrated into the complete plant concept.

  • Washing

    FLAKE SORTING UNIT

    The flake sorting unit is a module, which offers an optical sorting with a high recovery degree. It can sort after polymer kinds and after colors.

  • Washing

    BIG BAG FILLING STATION

    At the end of the process the modular design offers the option to integrate a Big-Bag station, which makes the material ready for the following transport

HydroDyn

WASCHING TECHNOLOGY

The patented technology brings out a 100 % improved washing result compared to conventional washing technologies. The heat, which supports for the cleaning process, is generated in the Plastic Cleaning Unit (PCU) by friction of the plastic parts. Therefor the HydroDyn works extremely energy- and cost efficient.

    PLANT OPERATION SYSTEM

    The plant operation system is the central control unit of the fully automated VecoDyn system. This is where all information of the plant coincides and allows the operator a central control, based on an innovative control platform.

  • Washing

    MATERIAL PREPARATION UNIT

    • Prepares the shredded material for the washing process
    • Larger stones and metal pieces are rejected via floating / sink method
    • Smaller stones and metal contaminations also sink and do not get in the downstream process
    • Protects other VecoDyn modules reliably against damage

  • Washing

    PLASTIC CLEANING UNIT

    • Central element of the VecoDyn washing technology
    • Based on a unique hydrodynamic process (water circulation + friction)
    • Cleans even heavily soiled plastics reliably (e.g. removal of paper labels)
    • Highest degree of purity at maximum energy efficiency

  • Washing

    FINAL CLEANING UNIT

    • Designed as separate cleaning system for plastics that are contaminated by a low or medium degree
    • Can support the PCU with difficult contaminations
    • The technology of the system is also based on the principle of hydro dynamic cleaning
    • The cleaning effect of conventional washing technologies is considerably exceeded

  • Washing

    WATER SEPARATION UNIT

    • Phase separation of material (flakes) and process water
    • The water separation unit consists of a phase separator and a mechanical dryer in cascade design for maximum drying results
    • Water separation and pre-drying minimize the energy consumption of the subsequent thermal drying
    •  Equipped with high-torque motor drives

  • Washing

    THERMAL DRYING UNIT

    The thermal drying unit is a high performance dryer ensuring the constant residual moisture content of the material. Operated by electricity or gas this outstandingly maintainable unit grants for reliable production process.

  • Washing

    PNEUMATIC PICKUP UNIT

    The pneumatic pickup unit ensures the further pneumatic transport of washed flakes at the end of the cleaning process. Thus an efficient conveying of the material into a bunker or directly to the extruder is granted.

  • Washing

    WATER FILTRATION UNIT

    • Separation of pulp (adhesive labels and glue) also as organic and mineral contaminations (sand, sediments)
    • Filters the process water using HydroDyn disc filtrator in an innovative way
    •  Protects other filter systems

  • Washing

    WATER TREATMENT UNIT

    • Removes impurities and contaminant particles through two-stage flotation process from the process water
    • Micro bubbles lead the particle to the surface for separation
    • Provides purified process water for the modules PCU and FCU
    • Significantly reduces fresh water needs of the entire process

    BUFFER TANK UNIT

    The buffer tank unit is a specially developed buffer storage within the washing unit. It levels the water circuit and thus ensures the high-efficient water management in the system.

Cases

Case Non Woven EN

Case Non Woven EN

For the high-precision cutting of extremely fine filaments, yarns and big bags, Vecoplan designed two shredders for a single customer. The main focus lay on the extremely precise cutting technology and a fully closed housing. The Vecoplan shredder VAZ 1600 XLMFFT masters both.

Case VVZ EN

Case VVZ EN

In Turkey, Vecoplan® installed a highly modern and extremely productive RDF processing plant for the waste recycler RDF Kontamine. Using the specialist RDF shredder VVZ 250T and two VEZ 2500 TT re-shredders, RDF Kontamine achieves an hourly output of 35 tonnes of fuel. The complete system is designed for optimum fuel quality and minimum operating costs for the supply of a cement works.

Case Hard Plastic

Case Hard Plastic

Vecoplan® has implemented a system for shredding hard plastics for an austrian recycling company. The challenge when shredding cans, buckets and detergent bottles, for example, is foreign objects. In the past they had to be removed in a way that was time- consuming and costly. The Vecoplan® high performance shredder VAZ 2500 has put an end to this.
