HOPPERS & SILOS Silo trio for Closed Loop Recycling


Genesis Process Solutions has just completed the supply and installation of an internal storage system for Closed Loop Recycling in Dagenham. Closed Loop Recycling takes waste soft drinks and water bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) along with milk bottles made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) and recycles them back into food-grade plastic. The resulting PET and HDPE is then used to make new bottles and food packaging. As part of a major expansion on site, Genesis Process Solutions was selected to supply three, fl exible silos on load cells together with rotary valves. Other companies supplied cyclones, pipework


and pneumatic conveying to fi ll the silos with Genesis ensuring a smooth connection between the silos and other fi lling equipment. Genesis staff worked weekends to avoid disruption to production and to keep the installation on time and to budget.


The silos will contain HDPE fl ake which has been granulated, washed, dried, fl oat separated ready to be delivered to the extrusion lines. The new silos measure 2.1m x2.1m by 7.5m high and, because of the fl ow characteristics of HDPE fl ake, have been fi tted with sweeping arm, fl at bottom dischargers which eliminate the chances of ‘rat-holing’ or product bridging – a well-


documented issue with fl ake material. These three new silos bring the total number of fl exible silos at Closed Loop Recycling to eight. n
