ScrapSaver (SSM)

ScrapSaver (SSM)
Film Trim Reclaim Systems

The ScrapSaver volumetrically feeds ground light density film scrap to the extruder feed screw in a stable, consistent flow. Conair trim systems handle all kinds of film and sheet waste and return it directly to the extruder at rates of 25% or more.

Direct in-line reprocessing of scrap material eliminates scrap handling costs and the risk of cross-contamination. Scrap inventory and labor expenses are significantly reduced and additional heat histories associated with secondary re-pelletizing or densifying operations are eliminated.

  • Longer life motor and gearboxes
  • Won't overfeed or underfeed the process
  • Agitation prevents bridging
  • Inexpensive operation
  • Additive feeder side mount
