SURREY — Kernic Systems, a manufacturer of scrap and trim recovery solutions for the corrugated, printing, and folding carton industries, announces the successful installation of a brand-new turn-key scrap collection system at CanCorr, a greenfield corrugated sheet feeder plant in Surrey, BC. CanCorr (Canada Corrugated Industries Inc.) will cater to clients across North America, with a focus on serving Western Canada for all their corrugated sheet needs.

“I was very impressed, from the first quotation all the way to completion. The Kernic Systems team and support from Höcker Polytechnik was terrific every step of the way,” said Abi Naemi, Executive Partner of CanCorr. “The lack of dust on our production equipment and the low noise levels really speaks to the quality of design and engineering of this new style of scrap removal system.”

The installation of the centralized negative pressure scrap collection system at CanCorr included a comprehensive range of equipment with a reported focus on efficiency, safety, and cleanliness. This scrap recovery system services a new 1,000 FPM, 112” wide double-wall BW Paper Systems corrugator. The negative pressure system produced by Höcker Polytechnik creates a dust free environment with less noise, making it safer, cleaner, and more environmentally friendly, which in turn generates a higher return on investment compared to traditional positive pressure systems.

The negative pressure system differs from traditional positive pressure systems that ‘push’ material through duct work towards the separator and collector using material handling fans. The negative pressure system pulls scrap material towards the separator, where scrap is deposited into a horizontal baler while the dust and conveying air continue to the dust collector for filtration.

“Kernic Systems is committed to providing our clients with efficient, sustainable solutions to meet the needs of their modern packaging production equipment,” said John Jurk, Vice President, and Partner of Kernic Systems. “With this incredibly efficient scrap recovery system we are able to provide our client with a labor-free, dust-free and environmentally conscious solution to save valuable labor hours while maintaining a safe and healthy working environment. We are proud to have partnered with Höcker Polytechnik to bring these advancements in scrap recovery systems to the corrugated manufacturing industry here in North America”.
