Rotary and stator knives for PET recycling

From the Old to the New: Our knives for PET recycling

Clothing instead of landfill

PET must beone of the most interesting recycling materials of recent years as, during this time, not only new bottles, but also clothing and much more have been produced from recycled bottles. In Germany alone, each year the volume of PET bottles discarded when empty has exceeded 400,000 [tonnes], 96% of which is taken to professional recycling. An additional 60,000 tonnes arises annually as packaging material. However, PET is an extremely abrasive material, which exacts enormous demands on the tools used in recycling. Our knives have been proven by their high resistance to wear, and we also supply, in addition to our proven quality standards, extremely hard-wearing special qualities.
