Recycling Stars / Recycling Discs / Rubber Star Replacements
New Extended Wear Recycling Stars from Qualiform
Qualiform offers a new line of replacement recycling stars, the rubber star used for sorting in recycling machines. This new line of rubber stars is made from a proprietary compound formulation reinforced with fibers for extended life. This superior compound not only wears slower but also maintains the durometer. The recycling star “fingers” remain flexible maintaining optimal sorting performance.
Qualiform produces Machinex brand replacement recycling stars.
OEM recycling stars need to be replaced multiple times a year due to wear. As the rubber degrades, it begins to harden and makes it more difficult to sort materials. Field testing of the new Qualiform rubber stars shows a dramatic improvement in performance. The fibers molded into the rubber, similar to radial tires, decrease the wear so that required replacement is reduced. The proprietary formulation also better maintains the durometer even in extreme temperatures. The ‘fingers’ remain flexible and the durometer is relatively stable over the life of the stars.
