Kernic Systems completes a new centralized trim collection system for a major envelope manufacturer in the United States.
This new two-grade system allows for the customer to maximize their return on their trim waste (commonly referred to as chip waste) while simultaneously providing full redundancy and allowing for offline separator or baler maintenance.
Each of the customer’s multiple envelope machines have dedicated trim transfer fans, duct lines and in-line duct diverters to switch between the two balers for “PRINT” and “HARD WHITE” grade separation. The conveying air and trim waste enters high efficiency Höcker Polytechnik GmbH PMA rotary airlock separators that separates the trim waste from the conveying air stream. All conveying air and dust particulate is then filtered through a Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) GOLD SERIES dust collector and returned to the plant.
The dust collector was supplied with all NFPA compliance requirements including: through the wall explosion venting, inlet isolation gate, and a high speed abort gate on the clean air discharge.
Of the two auto tie balers required for this project, one was an existing American Baler PAC series and was relocated from the customer’s existing system. The second American PAC series baler was refurbished and supplied by Kernic.
Many thanks again to all of our excellent partners on another terrific install.
