Amut upgrades Mohawk PET washing plant

Сase studies

The American giant MOHAWK Industries, flooring manufacturer, once again relies on AMUT's experience for the upgrade of its PET washing plant, in Summerville, Georgia, USA.

AMUT announces the successful upgrade of the FLAKE WASHING system at MOHAWK Industries in September 2022.

Anthony Georges, President of AMUT North America Inc. stated, that the company had done a trial of their dirty flakes a few years ago in its patented AMUT PET FLAKE WASHING system which demonstrated the cleanliness of the resulting material and how much more efficiently they could operate their fiber extrusion lines. The results were extremely positive and as such MOHAWK purchased a 4,000 Kg/Hr flake washing system from AMUT.

Mark Dye, MOHAWK’s VP of Recycling Operations confirmed the results. “The AMUT Friction Washer is a great machine for removing and cleaning our PET flakes, along with their TURBO washer unit, which assists in the removal of the inorganic fines that are embedded in the dirty MRF PET Bottle Bales. The cleanliness translates into improved performance in our downstream processes. Since we are a vertically integrated business with our own recycling plant, Extrusion Fiber operation and Carpet Manufacturing Production plants, we are seeing the quality improvements immediately with a cleaner flake.”

“Our engineering team at MOHAWK worked very closely with the AMUT design, fabrication, and installations teams. The challenges of working through COVID protocols were complicated, along with the massive flooding in our region this past summer shutting down the area, yet the teams rose to the challenges and were successful in the implementation of the line into our existing system. The remarkable issue about the AMUT flake washing system is that we reduced the water and chemicals consumption in the cleaning process while achieving better quality.”
