Plastics & Plastics Recycling

Important Considerations

The lengthy involvement of Compass Systems in both plastics production and recycling applications has resulted in a number of innovative solutions. Compass Systems has developed some of the most innovative pneumatic systems around, finding new ways to cut costs and improve reliability while handling resins, extruded and molded parts, and recyclable scrap . Our ability to handle plastics handling solutions while minimizing moving parts created a number of systems noted for their easy maintenance and ability to cut energy and production costs. 


Compass Plastics and Plastic Recycling EXPERIENCE 

  • Compass systems use the least number of moving parts.  
  • Robust systems handle abrasive resins, finished parts and scrap, maintaining uptime and reliability. 
  • Sophisticated controls provide reliable visibility and automated maintenance. 
  • Top quality component fabrication ensures reliable performance 
  • All (En) Compassing Solutions Provide Single Point Accountability

We have pioneered ways to move materials with the least amount of moving parts.  This makes Compass systems less prone to failure, downtime and costly maintenance requirements.  Our automated conveyance systems use integrated control systems to reduce labor costs Sophisticated controls also monitor and maintain process visibility in challenging environments and facilities operating 24/7.   We use all major sensor brands and match them to the application to ensure both system reliability and dependable monitoring.  

In recycling operations, we have innovated ways to reliably separate and grind materials.  The pneumatic system used to transport materials to the shredders are equally tough, often requiring coating of inner tube surfaces to combat abrasion.   Our recycling systems have provided 99% reliable material segregation resulting in higher scrap values and elimination of secondary processing. 



We fabricate components for material handling systems in our Ohio factory.  Here our ASME certified welders ensure that fabrication of components meets or exceeds customer requirements.  Every part of a custom system is fit together and tested to ensure smooth installation and reliable performance.  



Once your system is ready, we’ll be there to set it up and service it.  We have supervised and built material handling facilities worldwide.
