Recycled Cellulose Fiber Insulation Production

Makron Fibretec is a complete production line for manufacturing recycled cellulose fiber thermal insulation.

Makron offers the technology to produce sustainable cellulose fiber from recycled raw material. Our technology makes your production more efficient and delivers a high-quality product. We offer you complete Makron Fibretec production lines according to your volume needs and deliver them with intelligent automation included. We cover every aspect of the project from engineering design to commissioning and staff training. Cellulose fiber is also an excellent additive for asphalt. Our technology enables you to produce both thermal insulation and cellulose fiber additives for asphalt with the same production line. Learn more here

Benefits

All the essential features

Makron Fibretec lines are designed to manufacture recycled cellulose fiber insulation. Our production lines come with all the essential features, including equipment to remove dust and impurities.

The line you need

All our production line combinations are designed for your needs. Whether your plans are for small or massive production volumes we have the production line you need.

30 years of experience

We delivered our first recycled cellulose fiber production lines over 30 years ago. And today, we continue to deliver and develop some of the world’s most effective cellulose insulation manufacturing lines.

Examples

Cellulose insulation production line

The Makron Fibretec 2000 provides the highest level of technology available in the recycled cellulose fiber insulation manufacturing industry. This production line is optimized for a capacity of at least 2,000 kg/hour.

Features

Complete production lines

All stages of production can be covered with one complete line. You can choose from three different sizes of production line.

Two products from one line

With Makron technology you can actually use one line to manufacture both recycled cellulose fiber insulation and cellulose fiber additives for asphalt.

Process stages

Our production lines take care of all the process stages in manufacturing recycled cellulose fiber insulation.

Paper Feeding

In the first step of cellulose insulation production the raw material, paper, is fed evenly onto the pre-handling table from where it is moved to the conveyor. On small capacity lines, the impurities are separated manually. On large capacity lines, the raw material has already been purified and baled, and the paper bales are fed onto the conveyor.

What Makron does

The Makron pre-handling table is designed for manual sorting of loose paper. For larger capacities, Makron delivers automated paper feeding systems for paper bales.

Material Crushing

The raw material is conveyed to the hammer mill or shredder where it is crushed into small pieces for refining. This stage includes a fiber surge bin for intermediate storage. From here the paper pieces are sorted for further processing.

Trash Separation

After crushing, the material is moved to trash separation where all remaining metal and heavy particles are separated.

What Makron does

After pre-crushing, metal and heavy particles are removed using a magnet and Makron’s heavy particle separator.

Dust Filtering

Dust filters remove all the dust from the process. Air and dust is extracted at all stages of the process through the filters.

What Makron does

Makron delivers a whole dust filtering system designed especially for the process. Our filter units operate continuously and they can be cleaned without stopping production. The system automatically cleans itself by closing one section of the filter tubes at a time.

Technical Data

Chemical Dosing

At this stage, chemicals are dosed into the recycled cellulose fiber. To produce a better quality product, chemicals can be added to protect against mold and fire. For example, borax and boric acid can be used. The dosing is very accurate and ensures that the right percentage of chemicals is added to the mix.
