Recycling

Mini recycling

The KBM MINI is a complete recycling system for small and medium moulding operations.

Recycle EPS/EPP/EPE/NEOPOR/ARCEL packagings and insulation materials into individual beads ready to make new products.

Mini recycling

A complete recycling system

The KBM MINI recycling plant consists of one combined pre-crushing and granulating unit, and a separate dust separating unit - both units are sound insulated. After the recycling, the material is blown into a storage silo made from plastic fabric, sewn as one big bag with steel frame for easy assembling.

Thanks to the two step/double chamber system and the large sieve surface and granulation chamber the MINI Recycling plant produces a high quality recycled material which contains a minimum of dust from waste production, cut-offs from block production or even from used EPS and EPP/EPE mouldings.

The MINI recycling unit breaks down the material to individual beads homogeneous with new pre-expanded beads. This consequently results in minimization of uneven density distribution caused by de-mixing problems. Blocking of core vents due to dust and lumps of material causing hot wire cutting problems in terms of inaccurate sheets with bad surface are also minimized. 

The recycled EPS and EPP material can be reused in shape moulding production in a ratio of at least 10-20 percent without any perceptible optical or physical change of the product quality. For block moulding 20-50 percent can be added.

The KBM MINI recycling plant for EPS and EPP is suitable for the small and medium shape moulding and the small block moulding operations.

Extensions for your MINI unit

As an extension to the MINI Recycling plant, we offer metering/mixing systems compatible with the unit. All units can be delivered separately.

  • For shape moulding production, we offer two metering/mixing systems. The metering unit is steplessly variable to ensure correct metering of EPS before the pre-expander and of EPP before the pre-pressurizing tank. The KBM Styromix units are available to give an individual and exact mixing of material for each moulding machine.

  • For block production, Styrometer with two silos and metering/mixing station, to be placed just before the block mould, is available. In the same way it can be used to fill pre-pressurizing tanks with recycled and new EPP material mixed in an accurate ratio.

For larger size shape moulding operations and for block moulding plants the MAXI recycling unit plant is available, just like our JUMBO recycling unit is available for the largest moulders.
