Raw materials & products of PET bottle washing line

PET plastic bottles are widely used in the packaging of carbonated drinks, mineral water, fruit juices, and other beverages. The recycled and cleaned pet plastic bottles can be used to make sleeping bags, pillow cores, car wheel covers, and so on, in addition to making pet plastic bottles again.

China’s PET plastic bottle consumption is very high, PET plastic bottles can be reprocessed into treasure, not only to solve the problem of China’s pet raw material shortage but also to reduce environmental pollution and waste of resources. The technology of PET bottle washing line has a very broad prospect.

Cleaning process of PET bottle washing line

Sorting and removing labels

Sorting and removing labels is to separate out the raw materials such as bottles, bottles of different colors, caps, labels, and other impurities that are not PET. 


In the process of crushing, not only the whole bottle can be broken into pieces, there is a strong pre-washing function, and the proper operation can remove more than 80% of the sediment and other impurities.


The washing process is mainly used to clean the mud and sand and other impurities attached to the surface of the used recycled plastic pieces.


It is convenient for dehydration and air-drying of plastic broken materials.


The plastic flakes are stored to facilitate packaging and secondary use.

2 types of plastic bottle washing line

Among PET bottle recycling lines, cold washing line and hot washing line are the two main types that are commonly used, each of which utilizes different processes and equipment to suit different washing needs.

The cold washing line uses room temperature water for cleaning without heating. During the entire cleaning process, not only can it effectively remove surface dirt and impurities, but it can also avoid plastic denaturation caused by high temperatures.

In contrast, hot washing line uses high-temperature water during the cleaning process to thoroughly remove dirt, grease, and residue. A key piece of equipment in a hot wash line is the hot washing tank, which heats the water to a high temperature, allowing for more effective cleaning.

The necessity of PET bottle recycling line

The annual amount of waste plastics in China is about 5 million tons, plastic has corrosion resistance, and not easy to-decompose characteristics, plastic waste rain for a long time, and the toxic additives in plastic will enter the groundwater, rivers, and lakes caused by pollution, endangering human health!

Therefore, waste plastic has caused a lot of potential harm to the environment and has become an environmental issue of concern to all sectors of society in China. And this characteristic and its small weight and large volume in the garbage determines that its final disposal is not suitable for landfill.

 However, it is a macromolecular material with high calorific value, recycling is in line with the basic national policy of sustainable development in China, and can also make full use of its intrinsic value, save resources and protect the environment.

Plastic pollution

Significance of PET bottle recycling line

Protect the environment

Improper disposal of waste plastics can cause pollution to the environment and deterioration of the local ecological environment. By PET bottle recycling line, we can reduce its impact on the environment, prevent pollution, and protect the ecological environment.

Saving resources

The production of plastics consumes a lot of resources such as PET role, and the recycling of waste plastics can precisely reuse these resources and achieve the purpose of saving. In the process of processing waste plastics, plastics can be recycled and reprocessed to make new plastic products, thus achieving the purpose of saving resources.

Cost reduction

Compared to the production of new plastics, recycling waste plastics is less expensive. At the same time, recycling waste plastics can bring additional revenue to manufacturing companies.

Prospect of PET bottle recycling line

Currently, recycling waste plastics has become a very important task worldwide. Governments and enterprises have invested a lot of human and material resources to promote the development of waste plastics recycling.

In China, the waste plastic recycling industry is also developing rapidly. The government has introduced a series of policies and measures to support the recycling of waste plastics, which can also promote the development of environmental protection.

At the same time, domestic enterprises have actively invested in the recycling industry to promote the concept of reusing waste plastics, forming the scale of the waste plastics recycling industry, and the recycling of plastic scrap also brings more resources to enterprises. Therefore, the PET bottle recycling line market has a broad prospect and a promising future.
