A Plastics Industry Leader

Whether you are a plastics compounder (blending polymers, fillers, plasticizers and colorants), a plastics company that utilizes a compounder’s product to manufacture plastic products (e.g. plastic bags, bottles, compact discs, outdoor furniture, packaging, pipe, vinyl siding), or a plastic recycler, somewhere in your system a Vortex product may be needed.

Our knowledge and experience with handling plastics came from a long history and close working relationship with the Plastics industry. We’ve identified slide gates and diverter valves’ key leaking points, developed proprietary sealing technologies and added features to reduce the time it takes to perform maintenance on our components. These improvements extend the valve’s service life, while reducing life-cycle and housekeeping costs.

Compounding
Compounding consists of preparing plastic formulations by mixing or/and blending polymers and additives in a molten state, these blends are automatically dosed through feeders/hoppers.

Manufacturing
Due to their relatively low cost, ease of manufacture, versatility, and imperviousness to water, plastics are used in an enormous and expanding range of products, from paper clips to spaceships.

Recycling
Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products, sometimes completely different in form from their original state.
