EPC Engineering & Technologies GmbH provides technology for PET plant modification
Flexibility in plant operation thanks to variPIPE: this is what U.S.-based company Unifi Manufacturing, Inc, one of world's leading innovators in manufacturing synthetic and recycled performance fibers, counts on. Once again, Unifi commissioned EPC Engineering & Technologies GmbH with pipeline design and equipment supply. Within Unifi's PET plant, the polymer distribution on two lines is being modified in order to ensure a more flexible plant operation. The basic and detailed design of the melt pipelines was carried out by EPC Engineering & Technologies GmbH using the company's own variPIPE calculation software. This software was specially developed for the simulation and design of high-pressure pipes for highly viscous liquids. The software was used to calculate the optimum pipe design for the spinning process, ensuring the best possible product quality, maximum flexibility and very good economic efficiency. The design phase of the project is now complete and the plant is currently under construction.
