We represent Osprey's engineered systems for the recovery of film and sheet scrap.

Typical fluff systems consist of:

  1. Trim Removal Inducers to carry the edge and/or bleed trims away from the production line.
  2. Film Grinder to chop/grind the continuous trims and any scrap rolls into smaller particles known as "fluff"
  3. Refeed Machine to feed that fluff back into the production at the desired scrap-to-virgin ratio.

Depending on the application, fluff refeed rates of up to 25% are achievable, higher in certain cases.

These systems are typically used with Smooth-bore extruder barrels which are capable of handling this low bulk density material. Grooved Feed extruders are not usually able to handle "fluff" and require the trims to be repelletized using an inline repelletizer (<--click for info)...
