    Coating and Laminating

    MEGTEC’s experience and application know-how are at your command for tough drying and web handling applications such as slow-drying coatings and materials or thin film coating and laminating. Dryers can be equipped with a wide variety of nozzle configurations ranging from simple slot nozzles to sophisticated Coanda-style air bars and patented air foil systems. A full range of heat sources are available including steam, direct and indirect gas-fired, thermal oil, electric, hot water and IR. In addition, the air handling systems can be integrated into the dryer enclosure or stand-alone for remote installation. When the process requires pollution control systems for solvent-based applications, MEGTEC also offers regenerative thermal oxidizers, solvent recovery, distillation and purification systems. MEGTEC also offers waste heat recovery packages to “close the energy loop” between pollution controls and the process, in order to reduce production costs and increase customer profits

    Increased Pigment Removal with Analysis of Pesticides in Oranges

    An application was developed to demonstrate increased pigment removal for the analysis of pesticides, using Supel™ QuE Z-Sep/C18 QuEChERS and an Ascentis® Express C18 HPLC Column. The improved cleanup can decrease column and instrument fouling, leading to extended LC column lifetime and reduced instrument downtime.

    Analysis of Methylimidazoles in Caramel Colored Carbonated Beverages

    Caramel colorings are used as additives in a broad range of food and beverage products to impart a desired color, but have no nutritional or preservative function. Recently, the potential hazard to humans of ammonia- and ammonia-sulfite-process caramel colorings was raised, because they contain the by-product 4-methylimidazole, which is a potential carcinogen.1 The methylimidazole compounds are difficult to analyze due to their polar nature and low molecular weight. Traditional reversed phase techniques are unsuccessful in retaining these small polar compounds. Therefore, most HPLC methods utilize ion-exchange resins for analysis. Another common method involves GC analysis after the analytes first undergo a derivatization step. The purpose of the work shown in this article was to develop a simple and fast analytical method to determine the levels of 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole in caramel colored carbonated beverages.

    Packaging Sorting

    Packaging waste is mostly made up of different polymers, beverage cartons, paper and glass. Depending on the country in question, different collection systems apply and the material will invariably arrive in different conditions to the MRF’s (Materials Recovery Facility). However, this does not present us with a problem. At TOMRA Sorting, regardless of the collection system operated, we are able to optimally sort the valuable fractions with high efficiency and purity. We currently operate sorting units at packaging MRF’s in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, UK and USA.

    Cardboard shredders for cardboard recycling

    Makes even the biggest mountains of cardboard into molehills! Every year, Germany produces around 10 million tonnes of cardboard and paperboard for the packaging industry. After their use, these items of cardboard packaging and boxes must then be reduced in volume before passing through the recycling process. This volume reduction step is performed by recycling companies and public recycling depots or in cardboard packaging and corrugated board factories.

    Determination of Additives in Beverages using Ascentis Express Columns

    Beverages, such as sodas and energy drinks, can include a number of polar ingredients, which are easily soluble in the water matrix of the drinks. These ingredients include sweeteners (sugars and sugar substitutes), caffeine, vitamin supplements, amino acids, organic acids, and plant extracts. Because the analytes are already in solution, there is no need for extensive sample preparation. Dilution followed by direct injection into an HPLC is typically suitable. In this article we present two beverage applications using Ascentis Express HPLC columns. Ascentis Express columns offer faster HPLC on any system. One benefit is their ability to produce the resolution, efficiency, and speed on conventional HPLC systems that is associated with the use of sub-2 micron columns on a UHPLC system, without generating high backpressure. Column chemistries (RP-Amide and HILIC) were selected for this article based on their enhanced performance with polar compounds in comparison to C18.

    Waste Sorting - Single Stream Recycling

    Single stream, otherwise known as dry commingled waste, comprises mostly of paper & card, plastic packaging waste, textiles and cans. Given that some collection schemes include glass whilst others exclude glass from commingled collection, we have provided figures for both waste types.

    Laboratory instruments solutions for polymer and plastics industry

    Synthetic polymers and plastics are a mainstay of modern life. Because of their versatility and physical properties, plastics and polymers have conquered nearly every aspect of human activity: airplanes and cars, packaging of all kinds, medical devices and products, electronics, and countless more – without high-quality and high-tech plastics most products we use today in everyday life would look very different. Polymer production is a demanding process in which high-purity raw materials undergo complex reactions and are turned into polymers, resins, rubbers, and gums. To make sure that the products meet the specifications, the materials and processes have to be monitored along the entire production chain. This makes the use of specific and highly accurate analytical techniques indispensable. We at Metrohm are committed to providing the instrumentation and know-how you need to solve your analytical challenges in polymer analysis.

    Shredders for Paper and Cardboard Tubes Treatment

    Paper and cardboard even if already selected during their collection, should be further separated to increase the commercial value of the prdouct itself. For that reason, SA Eng is proposing semi-automatic selection systems to separate the different kind of paper (printed or blank) and cardboard. Particular attention is given to the cardboard cores for which has been developped a specific machine for their shredding.

    Waste Compaction for the Plastic Packaging Film Industry

    Normal, clear or coloured packaging film is usually made from polyethylene (PE) and is the most widely recycled plastics material. Recovered waste material such as film, bags, sacks and pallet wrap, can all be baled sold on to recycling companies. If you’re unsure which type of plastic waste your business generates, we can help you identify it and recommend the best solution for your needs.

    HSM provides balers for use with plastics in many different scenarios from small volumes, with the aim of creating a tidy, efficient work area is the main aim through to demanding, high volume situations where a baler which can deal easily with throughputs of many bales per hour is required.

    Our new generation of modern balers have been created to use low levels of energy, generate a minimum level of noise and operate without the need for constant supervision.
