    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.

    Waste sorting solutions for the packaging industry

    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).

    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.

    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.
