vacuum fan parameters. Features include rotary blade cleaning of the hopper loader filter and two suction lances with antistatic PVC hose and vacuum Y-branch. The company has also added dry air technology to its KKT series of mobile granulate dryers and equipped them with a new control system with touch screen. The new units include an ECO energy saving programme that can cut energy use by up to 40%. Three sizes are available offering dry air volumetric flow rates of 55, 75 or 100 m3


to 180°C, allowing rapid drying of polymers such as PSU, PPS and PEEK. ❙ www.koch-technik.com


KraussMaffei Berstorff will launch the BPCTouch control system, which supports KraussMaffei Group’s Plastics 4.0 implementation of Industry 4.0 and is suitable for use with all twin screw extruders in the ZE BluePower, ZE UTX and ZE Basic series. The company says that the new control


system enhances ease of use and reduces set-up times during compound changes, providing the cost-effective and flexible operation required for today’s increasingly smaller batch sizes. The BPCTouch control software features a menu structure that

guides the machine operator through all process steps. All relevant peripheral components and downstream equipment can be easily integrated into the software using standardised interfaces. Each operator logs in at the integrated transponders by RFID chip card, with access to assigned functions set according to the individual’s user level, and the control system records all steps performed. The system also provides measurement of the energy consumption of the extruder and peripheral equipment. Other KraussMaffei Berstorff innovations for K2016 will include OEEplus (Overall Equipment Efficiency) for high performance PVC extrusion of standard pipe products. The company says by combining two KMD 108-36 E2/R twin screw extruders it can achieve improved performance in a confined space. The new configu- ration is also said to be powerful and energy-efficient and includes a flow-channel-optimised pipe head. ❙ www.kraussmaffeiberstorff.com


Kreyenborg will display products for drying and crystallising, as well as solutions for bulk material

handling. The company’s Infrared Rotary Dryers (IRD) are used for crystallising and/or drying virgin or regrind materials including ABS, EVA, HDPE, PC, PEEK, PET, PLA, PPS, PTFE, TPE, and TPU. The company says that with the use of a continuously functioning IRD, the need for energy-intensive processing using dry air is eliminated, resulting in average energy savings of 30%. Kreyenborg is also introducing the PET-Booster, a continuously operating system that dries PET within 7-10 minutes.


In addition, the company will launch a new pneu-


matic conveying system to handle poorly-flowing bulk materials such as bottle or film flakes. The system incorporates hopper loaders into the process while the conveyers have container geometries that avoid bridging or have internal bridge-breakers. The convey- ing systems can be combined with additional Kreyen- borg components for complete systems and can be inte- grated with PLC control. Kreyenborg will also show its mixing and feeding solutions. The Universal Quick Mixer is claimed to feature precise mixing and homogenising of bulk materials with limited flow properties, while the Masterbatch Mixer provides fast and gentle mixing and homogenising of sensitive bulk materials. ❙ www.kreyenborg.com


Leistritz will show the latest developments in its ZSE MAXX compounding extruder line and present a series of seminars focused on specific compounding applica- tion sectors, including bioplastics, conductive com- pounds, white and black masterbatch, and HFFR cable compounds. Industry 4.0 will also be on the agenda, with the company highlighting how online rheometry can be integrated into compounding plant management. ❙ www.leistritz.com


Lindner Washtec will display its new Rafter system for pre-washing of highly contaminated post-consumer plastic waste. The compact system is designed to fit between the company’s Micromat WS wet shredder and
