Aquapurge: Purging compounds for the plastics industry

Can Aquapurge save you both time and money?

Last week, I asked what you wanted to know about purging compounds, and yesterday, I saw that the two things that you all wanted to know the most were how Aquapurge can save you both time and money.

A very understandable question, who would buy a product without first knowing the benefits. It is ok to just talk about Aquapurge’s range of products, but I want you to really understand why you need them.

So first up, let’s look at how Aquapurge can save you time. We’ll start off with an easy one. If you wanted to clean your machine the traditional way, by doing a screw pull to clean it manually, that would take you roughly 24 hours, which means a member of staff is going to be occupied for that amount of time. On the other hand, if we look at Aquapurge, with only 7kg of Barrel Blitz Universal, you can purge one of your machines in just taking 30 minutes. I know, sounds crazy doesn’t it, but it’s true.

Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t see any reason why you would decide to drag out the cleaning process to 48x the amount of time it could be taking, pair that with the fact that your workers are going to be busy cleaning for two working days. It’s a no-brainer.

Now let’s look at how Aquapurge can save you money.

Really, saving money and saving time go hand in hand. If you are saving time in a healthy manner, and not cutting corners, chances are that you are going to see that you are also saving money, just as a byproduct of increased efficiency.

This is certainly a case when using Aquapurge. If you take for example that with BBU a purge can be done in half an hour, you have the rest of that day to focus your efforts elsewhere while that machine is back up and running.

With Aquapurge, you will see a steep downturn in rejects, the days of wasted material because of a bad colour change are over, flecks of carbon in your material is a thing of the past. Production meetings change from “firefighting analysis” to “productivity improvement meetings.

So hopefully this has helped explain how Aquapurge can save you both time and money, there is so much more to get into here so feel free to drop me a message, I would love to hear from you, better yet, get in contact over at

I hope to hear from you soon
