Plastics recycling company Regain Poymers has just taken on a new Coperion twin-screw extruder which will increase its compounding capacity by 40% to 50,000 tonnes a year.
To accommodate the extruder, a new 1,500kVA power supply had to be installed and the extrusion hall was extended.
The extruder will be complemented by Gala’s underwater pelletising system, designed to produce high-quality and uniform pellet and reduce potential pellet moisture.
Technical sales director Mark Roberts says: “As our strategy for 2012 is one of growth, investing in this new technology provides a significant move.
“Not only will the new machinery increase our volume output and our capacity to supply the market, it also ensures we are well placed to move the business forward and achieve our growth plans for 2012.”
