FILM AND RIGID WASHING LINES (PE-PP)
Rigid and Film Washing Lines are used for washing and dewatering Polyethylene (LLDPE, LDPE, HDPE) and Polypropylene (PP) scrap plastics. These are the widely used washing lines in plastic recycling industry as they are suitable for washing contaminated waste in film and rigid form.
Machines and features of machines which are constituting the Rigid and Film Washing Lines are chosen according to hourly throughput, types and percentage of contamination.
Size reduction of waste plastics, which are sorted out as film or rigid, are done by Shredder or Granulator at the first stage of the washing lines. Shred plastics are transferred to Washing section of the line by using conveyors or screw conveyors.
Floating PE – PP are separated from heavy contaminants (heavy plastics like PET, PVC, glass pieces, metal caps and coins etc.) in Sink Float Tanks and washed intensively by Friction Washers and Turbo Washers. Models and amount of washing equipment are chosen according to type and percentage of contamination.
Shred and washed plastics are dewatered by Film Dewatering Machine, Turbo Dryer or Spin Dryer depending on the form of plastics. After dewatering by the relevant machine washed and dewatered plastics are transferred to storing systems.
