PP PE Flake Recycling Line

PP PE flake recycling line is used to process hard plastics such as waste plastic drums. Plastic recycling equipment working steps, price and other important information will be presented here.
PP PE Flake Recycling Line

PP PE flake recycling line is the process of converting PP PE waste plastic into granular plastic. The plastic pelletizing process consists of cutting the plastic scrap into pieces and heating it until it melts. The melted plastic is then granulated through a die. The end product can be of high quality and can be used alone or mixed with other materials for reprocessing, thus reducing raw material costs.

How does PP PE flake recycling line work?

What is PP PE flake recycling line?

PP PE flake recycling line is designed for PP PE plastic barrel, drum,pipe, and other hard floating plastics. Plastic recycling granulator machine mainly includes plastic crushing and washing machine, rinsing tank, vertical type dewatering machine, plastic granulator, cooling tank, and pellet cutting device

Our company is one of the most professional plastic recycling equipment manufacturers. We have a complete development, production and sales integration of waste plastic recycling process equipment and plastic pelletizing line. We have many years of experience in waste resources recycling and are deeply engaged in the environmental protection recycling machinery industry. We have dealings with many countries and regions.

Raw materials&finished products of plastic waste recycling equipment

Plastic pelletizing machine factory is designed for recycling hard plastics, such as plastic drums, plastic boxes, etc. Through the plastic recycling granulating line, the waste plastic will be extruded into small pellets.

The recycled plastic pellets are mainly graded according to the different raw materials used and the characteristics of the processed plastic pellets, which are generally divided into primary, secondary, and tertiary materials.

  • The first-grade material is processed with better quality plastic raw materials, and the granules processed with these raw materials have better transparency and their quality is comparable to new materials, so it is called first-grade material.
  • Second-grade material is the raw material that has been used once and is of good quality, so it is also of good quality and the granules processed are of good transparency, so it is second-grade material.
  • The third-grade material is the raw material that has been used more than twice, and the processed granules are not so good in terms of elasticity and toughness.

Process flow of plastic pelletizing line

Plastic sorting → crushing → cleaning → rinsing → drying → pelletizing → drawing → cutting → packaging

The plastic waste recycling equipment typically involves several steps, including chopping and grinding the plastic material, melting it and extruding it through a die to form pellets. The pellets are then cooled and cut to the desired size.

The following is a general overview of the steps involved in a plastic pelletizing line for recycling plastic scrap:

  1. Pre-treatment: The plastic must be cleaned and prepared prior to pelletizing. This may involve separating contaminants from the plastic, drying the material and grinding it into small flakes or pellets.
  2. Melting: The plastic flakes are fed into a hopper and then conveyed to a heating chamber where they are melted by the plastic extruder.
  3. Extrusion: The melted plastic is then forced through a small opening called a die to form thin strands of plastic. These strands are cooled and cut into small, uniformly sized pellets.
  4. Cooling and drying: The pellets are cooled and dried to remove any residual moisture or contaminants.
  5. Packaging: The pellets are then packaged in bags or containers for shipping or storage.

In summary, the plastic pelletizing process involves melting, extruding and cooling to create small, uniformly sized pellets that can be used as raw materials for a variety of products. The entire plastic granules manufacturing process can also be customized according to the customer’s requirements, feel free to contact Shuliy’s staff for details.
