This year, a deCON 50 decontamination dryer for post-consumer recycled PET flakes will be on display at the Starlinger stand at the Plast 2012. Developed by Starlinger viscotec, technology provider for IV increase and decontamination of PET PCR flakes and pellets, the deCON 50 can be used as a stand-alone or inline unit that both dries and decontaminates crystallized PCR flakes or skeleton waste according to EFSA and FDA standards prior to the extrusion process. The first-in-first-out principle guarantees the same treatment time at the same temperature for each single flake, resulting in excellent decontamination without peak levels. Starlinger viscotec furthermore supplies solid stating and decontamination equipment for the production of food grade HDPE flakes. The newest machine development is the turn-key PET sheet line viscoSHEET for the production of 100 % food grade rPET sheet. It can process up to 100 % of undried material with no or just a minimal IV decrease.
