    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

    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.

    Optical Sorting Machines for single stream

    Irrespective of the used collection system and the corresponding task, we design systems that grant 100% efficiency. Various countries have different waste collection systems, resulting in different tasks for the sorting technology. For example, packaging waste mainly consists of plastics, paper and glass. Single-stream waste mainly consists of dry, mixed waste (paper, cardboard, films, plastics, metals, aluminium, and in many cases also glass). Heavy, mixed waste often also contains bulky materials etc. The integration of REDWAVE sorting machines into a waste treatment plant grants maximum purity of the sorted fractions.

    Shredders system for Paper and cardboard

    Harden has a wide range of balers for use in industrial and manufacturing settings. Many materials including, cardboard, paper, plastic packaging, PET Bottles/other rigid plastics and drinks cans can be successfully baled using one of Haren’s high specification balers. Harden offer customized solutions for shredding paper and cardboard. Our experienced technicians optimally configure the shredding system to meet your needs and thus ensure a perfect shredding result. Paper, cardboard and pasteboard are valuable raw materials that play an important role in recycling and in the waste processing industry. The easy recyclability of cellulose permits the economically efficient and environmentally friendly reuse of paper. Before shredding, the material is sorted based on its prior use, foreign objects are removed and only then is the material shredded.

    Harden Shredding Technology for Metal-processing Industry

    Harden Shredding Technology for Metal-processing IndustryMetal waste may be comes from the metal-processing industry, automotive industry, electronics industry, waste industry or commercial production, we will always offer you the right shredding system for recycling your valuable resources! The processing of scrap metal is strongly related to steelworks and, therefore, it becomes fundamental to deliver uniform material with a high specific weight. Harden scrap metal shredders are perfect parallel to shearing machines for volume reduction, hence qualifying the material as shovelable, but are also applicable upstream of the hammer mills, facilitating the work in terms of safety, wear and electricity consumption. The main fields of application are: • Light waste collection • Collection in packages • Unmodified or packaged automobiles (including with engine) • Rolling mill trimmings • Sheet metal • Oversized metal items (cabinets, etc.)

    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.

    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.
