This feeder is designed to handle recycled materials

By Mary Page Bailey |

Brabender Technologie

The FiberXpert FX50 fiber feeder (photo) is specially developed for feeding recycled materials, including carbon and natural fibers, recycled polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and bottle flakes, shredded plastic or carpet residues and other fiber products like cellulose, acrylic, aramid, polyamide, polymer or polyester fibers. Long, unevenly cut and non-flow-capable fibers can be fed reliably with the aid of a special fiber screw, hopper design with large inflow cross-section, large, steep-walled hopper and special agitator geometry and positioning. Potential applications for the FiberXpert include mixing in strengtheners or fillers during the compounding process, as well as biopolymers, recycling plastics, fibers in building materials or in the production of films or foils, where offcuts or waste from the startup process are recovered. — Brabender Technologie GmbH & Co.
