Langfields were delighted to deliver a Thermal Cracker Reactor, designed and manufactured at our Dunfermline facility, for an innovative plastic recycling project for Recycling Technologies Ltd (RT). The Thermal Cracker Reactor is part of the first RT7000 machine, a technology that fully supports a circular economy for waste plastics.
The carbon steel vessel was designed and manufactured to ASME VIII DIV 1:2019 (NCMS) and weighs 7.11 Tonnes. A fantastic job by the team from start to finish, delivered on time and within budget.
The project featured some unique aspects including:
- Refractory concrete lining.
- Specialist exotic metal nozzles using 304H/316H stainless steel.
- Unique body flange design for sealing pressure envelope.
David Hind, Dunfermline Facility Manager, commented on the completion of the project:
The completion of this project is a proud moment for all at the Dunfermline facility and we are delighted to have further developed our relationship with Recycling Technologies. We look forward to supporting their projects in the future that continue to innovate and push boundaries.
Dale Rautenbach, Manufacturing Director at Recycling Technologies added:
The completion of the Thermal Cracker Reactor is a critical and exciting milestone for RT. It has been a great experience working with the Langfields team to finish the design of the vessel and follow it through the stages of manufacture. We are looking forward to growing the relationship we have cultivated on future projects.
