The BKG FlexDisc, an innovation by Nordson Corporation that significantly enhances melt filtration in the recycling of post-consumer PET, has been selected to be a finalist in the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe competition. The category in which it is shortlisted is “Recycling Machinery Innovation of the Year.”
Two to four FlexDiscs can be combined in a filter stack, providing filtration area far greater than is available with standard flat screens without increasing machine size or weight. It yields finer filtration, prolongs filter life, and reduces backflush volume. Recommended for Bottle-2-Bottle recycling and rPET fiber production, the FlexDisc is designed for use with piston-driven backflush screen changers, such as Nordson’s HiCon V-Type 3G system. Nordson has named the combination V3G + FlexDisc = rPET Power².
“In view of today’s urgent need to expand post-consumer recycling, Nordson is especially honored to be shortlisted in the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe competition,” said Oliver Brandt, Market Development Manager, Recycling. “Our BKG FlexDisc has been shown to enhance the productivity of PET recycling while saving costs and improving the quality of the finished product.”
The Plastics Recycling Awards Europe 2021 winners will be announced on 5 November, during the second day of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe taking place at the RAI Amsterdam.
Open to organisations and individuals across Europe who are involved in the recycling of plastic materials, the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe are organised jointly by Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) and Crain Communications, organisers of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe. www.prseventeurope.com
