Erema North America, Inc: RPET sheet extrusion

An in-line system that produces RPET sheet from ground bottle stock is available from Erema North America (Topsfield, MA). The patented system feeds scrap into a vertical densifying unit that uses friction to compress, preheat and dry the plastic, which is then extruded, compressed and melted gradually.

That eliminates the need for costly predrying systems, says the company. Can also be used with PP and PS stock.
