Purgings — those strange, rocklike lumps of purged plastic after job and color changes — no longer have to go to the landfill. Meet the Maguire Purging Recovery System.
The two-stage system first slices or planes hard lumps of plastic into small pieces, then propels the pieces at a high rate of speed into the hopper of a compact granulator below.
Maguire Products Inc. sells the entire system, including the second-stage compact granulator, for $28,000.
“The Purging Recovery System is the only equipment designed specifically for the rugged work of size-reducing hard, heavy masses of plastic,” said B. Patrick Smith, vice president of marketing and sales for the auxiliary equipment maker in
“We developed this system to be heavy-duty in construction, shock-resistant in operation and easy for operators to access for loading. A specially constructed machine base and sound enclosure keeps noise at a minimum.”
