A successful implementation of a hot wash system upgrade at our client Orpet. 

To increase throughput from 1.000 kg/h to the required 2.000 kg/h pet flakes a modification of the existing hot wash unit was required. 

The modification consists of: 

  • replacement of the outdated discharge system with a new system designed for higher throughput
  • replacing the obsolete mixers with new ones with a special propeller design for better performance
  • redesign and supervision of the implementation of the material rinsing system and of the wash water treatment
