"As a compounder we are constantly changing material and colours and have had a great deal of success with Purgex. In the past the machines were purged using High Viscosity HDPE and by pulling the screws for intensive cleaning. Over a six month period we evaluated Purgex 459 and Purgex 3057 and found excellent results in changeovers and also a reduced need to actually pull screws for cleaning. Due to the temperature requirements of the materials we use we have settled on Purgex 3057 and have found significant savings in both time and money."
- we are sending over 1000kg less purge waste per month to landfill
- we estimate saving over over £1000 per month on purge costs
- reduced number of screw pulls per month
