PLAST 2023

22 Nov PLAST 2023


STAND Hall 15 Stand B11


After a forced hiatus of five years, Plast, the reference event in Italy for the plastics industry, returns to Milan. This year it will take place from 5 to 8 September. The spotlight will be on innovation and opportunities linked to the evolution of production paradigms in a circular perspective, which, together with sustainability and energy saving, represent the key themes of PLAST 2023. Piovan Group will be present with two stands showcasing a variety of sustainable technological solutions.

As for Doteco, you will find us at Stand B11, Hall 15. There you will be able to discover VENTO: the new automatic cooling and thickness control system that achieves high performance in terms of 2Sigma reduction and film uniformity.

On the gravimetric dosing side, GRADO ADROIT: the gain-in-weight “batch” blender with integrated extrusion control, also on display for the first time live in the 8 components’ configuration, equipped with GRAVICLEAN, the automatic cleaning system. Thanks to its extreme versatility, GRADO ADROIT is ideal for a wide range of applications.

Also present at the booth will be BLENDO ADROIT, he loss-in-weight gravimetric feeder indicated for extrusion processes where high accuracy and a homogeneous dispersion of additives are fundamental requirements.

Last, but not least GRAVIFEED, the gravimetric feeder specific for starve fed extruders, and KALIBRO, the automatic layflat control system.

And thant’s not all! Would you like to see some gravimetric blender in action?
No problem! There will be Doteco machines running on our partners’ extrusion lines, both directly at the show and during open-house events.

The Piovan Group team, on the other hand, will be waiting for you at booth B71-C72 – Hall 24 to show you the many new products from the Piovan, Pelletron, Aquatech and Penta brands.

More in detail, you will be able to see a system in operation equipped with Modula centralised drying system, Easylink+ automatic coupling station, Quantum gravimetric batch blend with remote mixer, Easy3+ system centralised transport management, all monitored by Winfactory 4.0, the Piovan supervision software that ensures maximum efficiency of production processes.

On display will be the Pelletron branded DeDuster® XP15 dust collector, a series designed for the plastics production and compounding industry, compact in that it is available for unloading capacities from 1,000 to 330,000 lbs/h of all types of granular products that need to be cleaned before packaging, shipping or processing. Due to its low height, the DeDuster® XP Series can be installed on bagging machines or moved under or between storage silos.

On show for the first time in Italy will be Condenso, the fume condenser that minimises energy consumption and emissions thanks to a heat exchanger that transfers energy from the incoming hot air to the outgoing air, reducing the thermal gap with the dehumidifier with lower costs for both cooling and heating.

With Aquatech brand, you will have the opportunity to discover Aryacool+ adiabatic drycooler, DigitempEvo water-cooled thermochiller and two models of the Easytherm water-cooled thermoregulators, one with an open system and the other pressurised.

Also on show will be the new industrial filtration system developed by Penta for transporting powdered material, characterised by a compact footprint and an innovative 4-sector cleaning system. In fact, the new filter, in its dedusting version, provides the possibility of installing the dedusting fan directly on top of the filter head, guaranteeing a reduction in overall dimensions or height, as well as lower pressure drop with greater suction efficiency and lower energy consumption.

Both of the Group’s stands will also provide experience to a virtual system dedicated to PET and Blown Film, with the mission to offering a complete overview of the machines supplied by the Group thanks to virtual reality.

By visiting the Piovan Group stand it will be also possible to see some of the analysis instruments, including Moisture Minder, the solution for the on-line measurement of moisture in plastic granules, and Odor Minder, the electronic nose developed by Piovan that can be supplied with Easypure and provides an immediate evaluation of the effectiveness of the odour removal process from the treated granule, for greater control of the deodorisation process.
