Plastic recycling equipment is a wide term that covers various technologies and different types of waste material plastic recycling machinery. The types of plastics materials which are being recycled identify the types of recycling machines for plastics required to recycle those plastics. A closed-loop plastics recycling system, or one in which scrap material is taken from a processing line, in a factory manufacturing a single product from one resin type and in one color, could be very simple. Scrap is removed from the line, fed into a shredder, grinder or granulator and reduced to the correct size, then conveyed back to the beginning of the production line, where it really is reintroduced as is going to be, or plastic extrusion equipment even more often blended with virgin resins prior to getting reintroduced to the production process.
Open-loop recycling systems, whether processing post-industrial or post-consumer plastic waste, need multiple types of automated equipment technologies working to achieve the required result together. These can include, but are certainly not limited by: sorting, size lowering, separation, washing, baling, and pelletizing. Each plastic recycling process is different depending on the kind of plastic to be processed.
Sorting machines need to quickly determine and classify huge quantities of post-consumer and/or post-industrial plastics, under constant responses. Advanced automated plastic sorting equipment could be equipped with sensors, ejectors, computer consumer and systems interfaces for maximum efficiency.
Separating equipment reduces the possibility of stock contamination and removes any nonreusable materials. Both types of procedures are called dried out or wet methods. The wet method work with a float tank that separates the plastic materials based on density. The dried out method employs surroundings separation technologies that different materials types by density. Metals are also separated. Ferrous metals are taken off by using magnets and nonferrous metals are removed by using eddy-current separators.
The washing and cleaning stage removes residual dirt and residue, such as glue, paper, grit and sand. Plastic spend can go through a bath, friction washer or washing line, that applies a continuous hot spray alongside detergents and disinfecting products for cleansing.
Pelletizing is the final step in the plastic recycling process. The pelletizing machine generally runs on the single or double screw extruder with different ratios with respect to the desired result. The single screw extruder runs on the pumping action as the double screw uses a mixing function to create the form of the plastic for final use.
Whether you need simple, closed-loop, plastics recycling machine equipment or a complex plastics recycling system, Useon group has the technologies, machine to recycle plastics, and the right plastic recycling equipment prices. Most of all, the experience to meet those needs and reduce plastic recycling machine cost.
