PET Bottle Recycling Line Details

The configuration of the production line is a concern for many customers. The whole PET bottle recycling line includes a label removal machine, a PET bottle crushing machine, a plastic scrap washing machine, a sink float plastic separation, a PET flakes dewatering machine, etc. Through these processes, we help customers process waste PET bottles into recycled PET bottle sheets that meet their requirements.

As a reliable PET bottle recycling machine supplier, we have rich experience and have exported equipment to countries such as Nigeria, South Sudan, Congo, Saudi Arabia, and Mozambique. We tailor cleaning and recycling solutions based on the raw materials and needs of our customers, helping them effectively improve the quality and market competitiveness of recycled materials.

Raw Material And Finished Product

The quality of raw materials and finished products for PET bottle recycling lines is of great concern to customers, as these two factors directly affect their recycling efficiency, product quality, and market competitiveness.

The color grades of recycled PET bottle flakes are pure white flakes, light blue flakes, green flakes, yellow flakes, and miscellaneous flakes in descending order. Different color grades of PET bottle flakes have different prices and applications in the market. Pure white and light blue flakes are usually more expensive due to their higher purity and wide range of applications.

High-quality recycled PET bottle flakes are more competitive in the market, able to meet the needs of more customers and expand market share. It is suitable for various high-demand applications, such as food packaging, textiles, and high-quality plastic products. Our PET bottle recycling line is fully capable of producing high-quality pure white and light blue PET bottle flakes.

Working Process Of PET Bottle Washing Line

Through efficient separation technology and multi-level cleaning, our PET bottle recycling machine significantly improves the quality of recycled PET bottle sheets, ensuring their stronger competitiveness in the market. The following is a detailed process flow for the PET bottle recycling line:

Removing Labels

Firstly, the collected used PET bottles are de-labelled. The de-labeling rate of PET bottle label removers is 98%, which can reduce the PVC content in PET bottle flakes to less than or equal to 100-300mg/kg, ensuring the quality of final PET bottle flakes.

Label Removing Machine


The PET bottles after delabelling enter the PET bottle crushing machine for crushing. The shredder crushes the PET bottles into small flakes for subsequent cleaning and separation processes.

The blades of this PET bottle crusher are made of 9Crsi with excellent wear resistance and high hardness, ensuring long-time efficient work and long-lasting cutting performance.

The washing process consists of several steps to ensure that the PET bottle flakes are thoroughly cleaned:

  • Separation: The crushed PET bottles enter the sink float separation tank to separate the PET bottle flakes from the caps and labels using density separation technology. The machine can control polyolefin content ≤200-300(mg/kg).
  • Hot washing: PET bottle flakes enter the PET flakes hot washing machine and are hot washed at high temperatures. Oil and impurities are removed by soaking in hot water and stirring and rubbing with lye. The water temperature is 85-90 degrees and the cleaning time is 30-45 minutes is optimal.
  • Friction Washing: Residues on the surface of bottle flakes are further removed using a friction washer machine.
  • Rinsing: Finally, after several rinses ensure that the PET bottle flakes are completely clean and free of residual impurities. This step of the cleaning can be controlled with a pH less than or equal to 8.0.


The cleaned PET bottle flakes are fed into the PET flakes dryer machine for drying. The dryer completely removes water from the bottle flakes by centrifugal force, ensuring that they are in a dry state for subsequent handling and storage. The drying degree of this machine can reach 95-98%.

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. 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 Plastic Bottle Recycling Machine

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.
