What is A Plastic Film Recycling Line?

A plastic film recycling line is a specialized system designed to process and recycle various types of waste plastic films, such as agricultural films, packaging films, and industrial films. This line typically includes equipment for shredding, washing, drying, and pelletizing the plastic materials. Our plastic film recycling machine is equipped with advanced technology to ensure high efficiency and consistent output.

 We offer customizable solutions to meet the specific needs of our customers. Customization options include adjusting capacity (ranging from 100 kg/h to 500 kg/h) and equipment configurations to suit your facility layout and production requirements.

If you want to know how to customize the plastic film recycling line, you can leave a message on our website. Our professional sales manager will give you a detailed introduction as well as send you a quotation.

Plastic Film Granulation Process

Are you curious about how waste plastic films are transformed into valuable plastic pellets? Let’s take a closer look at the various steps of the process, from shredding and washing to extruding and pelletizing.

  1. The plastic waste is conveyed to the waste plastic crusher through the conveyor, and the plastic waste is initially crushed into smaller-sized plastic flakes.
  2. The crushed plastic sheet enters the plastic washing tank to clean off impurities, mud, and sand.
  3. Entering the plastic dewatering machine to dry the plastic pieces.
  4. The dried plastic pieces are then passed through a pelletizing system that melts the wet plastic into a paste, and the plastic pelletizer will produce hot long strips, which are then cooled in a cold water tank.
  5. Through the plastic granule cutter, the long strips are uniformly made into plastic pellets of uniform size. Finally, these recycled pellets will be stored in a storage bin.

Raw Materials & Finished Products of Plastic Film Recycling Line

Raw materials are the main focus that customers must pay attention to when engaging in the recycling business. Plastic film recycling lines cover a wide range of raw materials, including all kinds of waste plastic films, such as shopping bags, packaging films, industrial films, agricultural films, cling films, PP raffia bags, cement bags, woven bags, and so on.

After treatment through the processes of crushing, washing, and granulation, it is transformed into finished products in granule form. These granules can not only be sold but used again in the production of plastic products. Our plastic film recycling lines ensure that the quality of plastic pellets produced is exceptional, which is a distinct advantage for our customers.

Recycled plastic pellets are mainly differentiated into grades according to the different raw materials used and the characteristics of the processed plastic pellets, which are generally divided into one, two, and three levels of material.

First-grade material is the processing of better quality or unused plastic raw materials, with these as raw materials processed out of the pellet, transparency is better, and its quality can be compared with the new material, so the first-grade material.

Our plastic pelletizing line can process first-grade recycled plastic pellets. Generally, plastic producers will produce trimmings or unused waste materials during the production process, which are of high purity and quality. With our pelletizing line, these wastes can be effectively recycled to produce recycled plastic pellets that meet the standard of Grade 1 material.

The second-grade material refers to the raw material that has been used once but has not been exposed to the wind and sun, so its quality is also very good, and the transparency of the processed granules is good, so it is the second-grade material. The average plastic recycling manufacturer produces secondary plastic pellets.

How to Get High-quality Recycled Plastic Pellets?

Producing high-quality recycled plastic pellets not only helps customers improve production efficiency and product quality but also brings them significant economic benefits and competitive advantages in the market. Several elements of how to get high-quality plastic pellets in a plastic film recycling line.

recycled plastic pellets


If you want to produce high-quality plastic pellets with your plastic film recycling machine, it is essential to choose plastic raw materials that are recycled as few times as possible. The more times the plastic is recycled, the more impurities there will be in the batch.

Material Moisture Content

Plastic raw materials with high moisture content should not be directly base granulated. This can lead to a large number of pores on the surface of the final plastic pellets after hot melting, plasticizing, extruding, cooling, and pelletizing.

We recommend that the moisture content of the raw material should not exceed 6%, thus avoiding the creation of porosity in the final plastic pellets.

Efficient Plastic Granulating Equipment

Plastic recycling pelletizing machines melt waste plastic at high temperatures to ensure that the raw material is fully melted and achieves the appropriate fluidity.

It can precisely control the pressure and speed of the extruder to ensure that the plastic pellets are subjected to uniform force during the extrusion process and avoid changes in the shape and size of the pellets.

Our plastic pelletizing machines are designed to produce high-quality plastic pellets using state-of-the-art technology and design. The advantage lies in the highly efficient melting and extruding capabilities, which ensure that the plastic raw material is fully melted and uniformly extruded to produce uniformly sized and shaped pellets.

Cooling Tank

Cooling tank

The cooling tank is made of stainless steel, which does not rust or corrode. It is mainly used to cool the soft ribbon material extruded from the plastic granulator to harden it. Through cooling, the surface and interior of the plastic lengths can cool and solidify quickly, ensuring that they are stable in shape and size. This is essential for subsequent cutting and processing, ensuring that the final plastic pellets produced are uniform in size.
