Recycling Solutions powered by DEECOM from Cygnet Texkimp

Cygnet Texkimp’s waste recycling uses superheated steam to gently remove a range of polymers from filters and related production equipment, allowing for raw material waste to be reused in your manufacturing process.
Using a combination of superheated steam pressure swings or compression/decompression cycles, frozen polymer is removed from contaminated components and assemblies. The process takes place in a controlled environment contained within a custom designed pressure vessel. The components are enclosed in a pressure vessel and the pressure is rapidly decreased by opening the blowdown valves. Depending on the polymer type, temperatures above 250oC will melt or soften the polymer and a degree of hydrolysis will occur. When at pressure, the steam will penetrate fissures in the polymer where it condenses as superheated water. On decompression, it boils, instantly cracking the polymer and carrying away broken particles along with the softened, degraded polymer fragments from the outer faces. The pressure swing cycle is then repeated at frequent intervals and controlled automatically with no detrimental effect on the integrity of filter media or metal structure. Waste Recycling machines are designed to meet the individual requirements of the customer.

JEC Group is a non-profit organization entirely dedicated to promoting composite materials and fostering their applications globally. Publisher of the JEC Composites Magazine, the industry's reference magazine, JEC organizes several events around the world, including JEC World, the leading international exhibition dedicated to composites and their applications, which takes place annually in Paris. JEC media, events and digital channels connect a global community of professionals from the composites industry and beyond, to enable knowledge transfer, create networking opportunities, and highlight innovation.
