POLYMETRIX EcoSphere™ SSP for new mega scale PET plant
Polymetrix AG, the former Bühler Thermal Processes AG, has been awarded a contract for the delivery of two mega scale EcoSphereTM SSP lines for a bottle grade PET production facility in Jiangsu Province, P.R. China. The plant is scheduled to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2016.
The integration of the Polymetrix EcoSphereTM PET SSP technology and the latest generation of melt phase technology built by Chemtex, is setting new standards for PET manufacturing in terms of size, product quality, conversion costs and capital costs.
The CP and SSP sections are directly coupled in order to avoid investment in intermediate storage silos. Special attention has been paid to keep the operational robustness of the new PET production concept at a comparable level to conventional PET manufacturing processes.
