As the world continues to grapple with the environmental impact of plastic waste, the importance of plastic recycling cannot be overstated. But recycling plastic is not always a straightforward process. It requires careful consideration of a variety of factors, including the type of plastic being recycled, the intended use of the recycled material, and the processing equipment used in the recycling process.

That’s where Rotolok comes in…

At Rotolok, we understand that no two plastic recycling projects are the same. That’s why we always provide customised solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of our customers. With our extensive experience in the plastic recycling sector, we have the expertise and knowledge to provide the right specification for any project, no matter how complex or challenging.

One of the key strengths of our approach is flexibility. We recognise that plastic recycling is an ever evolving field, with new materials, technologies, and regulations emerging all the time. That’s why we stay up to date with the latest developments in the industry and are constantly adapting our solutions to meet changing needs.

For example, our rotary valves and airlocks are ideal for use in plastic recycling processes. They can handle a wide range of materials, including both virgin and recycled plastics, and are designed to minimise material degradation and dust emissions. Plus, our valves and airlocks are available in a variety of materials, including stainless steel and abrasion-resistant coatings, to ensure long-lasting performance even in the harshest environments.

Another important factor in plastic recycling is efficiency. With increasing pressure to reduce waste and minimise energy consumption, it’s crucial to have equipment that can process materials quickly and effectively. Our rotary valves and airlocks are designed to maximise material flow while minimising downtime and maintenance requirements, helping to keep your recycling operation running smoothly and efficiently.

Whether you are processing consumer waste or manufacturing scrap, we have the expertise and solutions to meet your needs. With our flexible, adaptable approach and our focus on efficiency and performance, we can help you achieve your sustainability objectives while minimising costs and maximising productivity.
