4 Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Plants for Sale
PET Plant - 88,000 TPY
Stock # 105
Capacity 88,000 TPY

Phoenix Equipment Corporation has this used Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) production facility immediately available. There are two plants. The first plant has primary and secondary solid state polymerization units to produce 22,000 TPY PET. The second plant started production just a few years ago. Its capacity is approximately 66,000 TPY. Both plants produce bottle grade resins and products for other applications.

PET Fiber Plant - 6,500 TPY
Stock # 315
Capacity 6,500 TPY

Phoenix Equipment Corporation has this used PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) fiber plant immediately available. This plant uses PET chips to manufacture fibers in deniers ranging from 1100 to 2200 dtex. Major market of the PET fiber products are high modulus yarn used in geotextile applications, and low shrinking yarn used mostly for tarpaulins. The process includes crystallization, solid state polymerization reaction, extrusion, cross quenching, spinning, drawing and winding. The plant also has an automatic doffing and packing system. Major equipment was manufactured by Barmag and Rieter

PET Plant - 450 TPD
Stock # 418
Capacity 450 TPD

The PET reaction trains use the technology from DuPont for TPA based esterification process and the upgrades to enhance the polymerization capacity. This technology includes six (6) process sections: PTA & MEG slurry mixing, esterification, catalyst and additive injection, pre-polymerization, polymerization, and ship formation. The pre-polymerization uses glycol enhanced mass transfer without mechanical agitation. The polymerization occurs by a cage-type finisher agitator without central shaft. Continuous wiping of finisher vessel wall eliminates degradation. The product bottle resin has polymer IV 0.6 (+/- 0.01), catalyst concentration less than 250 PPM as Sb, DEG content 1.2% in polymer, IPA 2.15% weight, toner (Cobalt Acetate) 60 PPM, phosphoric acid 20 PPM, COOH 40, acetaldehyde 90 PPM, moisture content 0.2%, bottle chip weight 15 – 18 mg/chip, chip size 3.0 X 2.0 X 2.5 mm. The SSP (Solid State Polymerization) plant uses UOP technology further processes the PET resin of 0.60 dl/g IV into 0.84 dl/g IV, which is bottle grade quality resin. The SSP process includes 4 steps: (1) crystallization, (2) annealing, (3) SSP reaction, (4) cooling.

SSP and PET Yarn Plant - 5,000 TPY
Stock # 428
Capacity 5,000 TPY

Starting from undried PET chips with standard textile viscosity of iv = 0.64, the plant is designed to produce industrial yarns tpes SLS – FDY. The plant consists of the following process sections: (1) Chip Handling, Crystallization and Solida State Postpolycondensation (SSP); (2) Spinning and winding; (3) Chemical & Textile Laboratories and Balance Equipment; (4) Refrigeration and Compressed Air Plants. Bright and undried PET chips are feed to the crystallization system (30 TPD capacity) and then processed in the continuously operating SSP line, which has turn-down ratio of 1:4 (min. capacity 7.5 TPD and nominal capacity 30 TPD). The two (2) extruders have multiple zones of heating and cooling, with screw diameter of 150 mm. Each of the two (2) spinners has 4 spinning positions applying 4-end spinning and 4-end winding. Spinneret diameter is 165 mm. Each spinning head is equipped with: 2 one-fold gears for 2-stream melt metering (spinning) pumps, 2 synchronous e-motors, 2 static frequency converters for spinning pumps, 1 annealer, and 1 air quenching chamber. Draw-winding systems have 4 positions. Each position has: 2 spin finish application systems for 4-ends, 1 yarn suction system for 4-ends, 1 pretension godet with separator roll, 5 heated drawing godet, 1 pre-intermingling system, and 1 automatic Barmag winder (model # ACW 6I-1200/4). The winder is equipped with turret, 2chuks for 4 bobbins with push out system, birotor traveling system. The package size is 250 mm width and max. 390 mm diameter. The product of PET – SLS has fineness of 1100 / 192 dtex/l.
