Pre-washing machine

This section is essential for the line to be able to accept the worst quality PET bottles, continuously removing large and abrasive contaminants.

Manual sorting belt

The manual sorting conveyor consists of a horizontal conveyor belt with platforms on side, discharge chutes and a discharge conveyor for centralized contaminant disposal (optional – on demand).

Wet Grinder

In this section, PET bottles are cut into smaller pieces to achieve the required size distribution for the washing sections that follow.

Hot water washing machine

Washing the flakes from labels, dirt and other residues by water heated to 85 centigrade. Overflow on top of washing chamber, remove cups and rest of the paper.

Friction washing tank

The flakes are efficiently cleaned insight inclining drum with blades on rotor turning 1,200RPM.Flakes are rubbing against each other as well as against the rotating auger. The auger moves the flakes forward and clean last remain of dirt.

Floating washing tank

It can separate the material according their density. PET sinks to the bottom and is discharged by a screw conveyor. Remains of caps and rings made of PE and labels of PP floats on the top and are moved by rotating shovels to side of washing tank. Small screw conveyor take them out. This machine removes 90% of paper and plastic labels.
