Unlocking the Mysteries of PET Bottle washing line Technology
The secret to further improving the quality of PET flakes: sorting machines
In a PET bottle washing line, the material sorting machine plays a crucial role in separating off-colors and impurities from the recycled PET material. It uses optical sensors and air flow to detect and remove these unwanted materials. By integrating the sorting machine, the PET material achieves higher purity, fewer impurities, and more consistent color.
This high-quality PET material can be used for the production of recycled plastic products such as bottles, fibers, sheets, etc., meeting industry requirements for quality and sustainability.
The equipment that determines the upper limit of recycling output: PET bottle crusher
The output of PET bottle crusher depends on the equipment specification, driving force and speed, feeding method and system, cutter and crushing chamber structure, as well as the characteristics and processing conditions of PET bottles.
Typically, a PET bottle washing line with an output of 500 kg/hr requires only one NC-800 crusher (cutter shaft length 800 mm).
For outputs above 1000kg/hr, 2000kg/hr or 5000kg/hr, a larger crusher is required.
How does a rinse tank do the job of cleaning PET flakes and separating other impurities?
A rinse tank cleans PET flakes and separates impurities by using water flow and agitation to dislodge and loosen impurities from the flakes. The turbulence created helps separate impurities, high-quality PET flakes will sink to the bottom, while non-PET plastics and other impurities will float to the surface and be automatically salvaged and collected..The process is repeated with clean water for thorough cleaning. The cleaned PET flakes are then dried before further processing.
The secret to fast dewatering and drying of PET flakes: Centrifugal dewatering machines.
A PET flakes centrifugal dewatering machine uses centrifugal force to remove water from the flakes. The wet flakes are loaded into a spinning drum with perforations. As the drum rotates, water is forced out through the perforations, leaving the drier flakes inside. The separated water is collected and drained, and the dried PET flakes are discharged for further processing.
