Plastic’s efficient separation
Take plastics and a water vortex and you get a simple, robust and efficient method to separate them.
Focussing on customer needs our mission is to make more plastics available for recycling.
The Circulyzer GmbH is your qualified partner to develop, engineer and install plants for the wet machenical processing of post- consumer plastics and related waste fractions. The customized plant concepts provide an efficient plastic recovery for recycling.
Our key technology – the centrifugal force separator (CFS)
Separation unit centrifugal force separator – just a cylindrical pipe with 4 openings
No rotating or moving parts in the separation unit due to the separation in the flow induced water vortex
High separation efficiency caused by the emerging centrifugal field and high retention times
Our services & products
Spinning off the university allows us to take 10 year experience in research, analysis and evaluation of diverse plastic separation technologies with us. Our strength is the design of new process chains, because we do not hesitate to strike new paths without renouncing proven methods.
Trials on our test facility
Our test facility is used to evaluate rapidly and at low- costs which plant or process configuration offers an efficent separation, whereby diverse post- consumer plastic containing waste fractions can be processed. For significant test results we need about 1 m³ (1 bigbag) of material. Due to the semi- industrial scale the material has to be crushed to < 20 mm prior to be fed into the test facility. If you interested to figure out the plastic recycling potential in your material streams, do not hesitate to contact us we are looking forward to your inquiry.
Based on the test results our calculation scheme enables to model the expected material streams. Therefore it is assumed that the circulyzer separtion technology is implemeted to the customer’s plant infrastructure. In a next step we can asses the prospective investment and operation costs and quantify the customer’s benefit. So the total processing cost can be determined and provide the basis for a evidence-based decision.
Sink- float separation unit
Our combined separation and washing unit comprising the centrifugal force separator as key element provides an efficient separation of >95% material purity and recovery. A material throuput (capacity) up to 30 m³/h or 9 t/h respectively and the compact and simple plant design result in a technically and economically attractive plant module for diverse applications. Consequently, post- consumer plastics can be recovered also from more strongly contaminated (heterogeneous) waste fractions for recycling .
