Here is some information in relation to our hybrid densifier and thermal densifier:
Q1: Does the process efficiency is affected by climate changes (hot&cold)? What is the tolerance of the process to these changes?
A1: Hybrid and Thermal Densifiers: Process efficiency is not affected by climate changes.
Q2: What is the tolerance of the process about potential contamination (food , label, stamp, etc.)?
A2: Hybrid -Very tolerant of potential contamination as opening of block forming is at least 200mm x 200mm
Thermal – Need more care with contaminants as this system has filter built in.
Q3: What is the installation effort of the densifier in terms of time (in hours) and money ($)?
A3: Hybrid – It will take about 2-3 hours to install. No cost if customer install themselves.
Thermal – Small unit wills will take about 1/2 – 1 hours installation time. Very large unit will take 2-3 hours to install. No cost if customer install themselves.
Q4: Is it possible to install the densifier both inside and outside of a building?
A4: Hybrid – Yes, with weatherizing option.
Thermal – Yes, with weatherizing option.
Q5: What is the maintenance effort of the densifier in terms of time (in hours) and money($)?
A5: Hybrid and Thermal – Maintenance effort is mostly related in greasing bearings and parts. Cost should be under $200 per year.
Q6: What is the maturity of the technology in terms of years?
A6: Hybrid – our technology is one of a kind, and is matured for over 3 years now.
Thermal – our technology is matured for over 12 years.
Q7: What is the quality level of the polystyrene in the output of the densification? What is the value of the polystyrene?
A7: Quality level of the output is dependent on the input of the material. Value of polystyrene ranges from $200-800/MT.
Q8: What are the purchase price of the densifiers?
A8: Ranges from USD10,000 to $120,000.
Q9: Does the densifier produces emissions / discharges?
A9: Hybrid – no emission nor discharges.
Thermal – will have air-emission like all other polystryene product.
Q10: Does the densifier is object to regulatory obligations/authorizations?
Q11: Do manpower is needed during the densification process?
A11: No. Only operator needed to feed the machine.
Q12: Is health & safety measures are necessary to operate the densifier?
A12: We always recommend that operators follow their local safety measures.
