Brabender Technologie to showcase special feeder for recycled materials

Brabender Technologie will be intentionally focusing on a feeder specially designed to tackle recycling tasks at the Solids trade fair in Dortmund on April 1 and 2, 2020.


Carbon and natural fibers that shredding transforms into uneven flakes and fibers. Fibers that snag mechanically on product bridges and don’t reach feed screws.


Brabender Technologie has a solution for feeding problems involving recycled materials: the FiberXpert FX50.


As introduced, this fiber feeder was specially developed for feeding recycled materials like carbon and natural fibers, recycled PP, PET and bottle flakes, shredded plastic or carpet residues and other fiber products like cellulose, acrylic, aramid, PPS, 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/foils, where offcuts or waste from the startup process are recovered.


Alongside the FX50, Brabender Technologie will also showcas a selection of other equipment at the Dortmund trade fair:


• the recently unveiled DSR28 and DDSR20 twin screw feeders

• a DSR28 agitator feeder in combination with a FlexWall 40 functioning as a filling unit

• a FlexWall 40 in a plexiglass finish
