PVC Washing Recycling Machine
Usage: It is used for recycling the waste plastic PVC, ABS. Such as film, profile, tube, label, bucket.
Structure: The line is mainly including Sorting conveyor, crusher, friction washer, cold washer, and hot washer, dryer.
PVC washing recycling machine
Due to the quite important and interesting quantities of material involved, thermoforms wastes are becoming an emerging new sector of the recycling market, with interesting opportunities for those who choose to become involved in this activity.
There are two basic groups of thermoforms on the market and each one of them has particular characteristics that have to be carefully considered in order to properly treat the materials in the recycling processes:
Monolayer (PP – APET – PS – PC – PETC – PVC-ABS)
Multilayer (PET/PE – PET/PVC – PET/EVOH – Others complex)
Thermoformed packaging for food products, such as meat, fish, and cheese, have very demanding specifications and therefore require strong attention in the choice of materials.
Today we often see packaging’s for fresh food, which must be sealable after use in order to maintain the properties of the content. These containers are usually manufactured using multilayer’s thermoforms containing PVC and PE. In other case, the package must form an efficient barrier, protecting its content from the moisture in the air. In this case, the multilayered thermoform is usually composed of, PE, and EVOH.

3. Brief introduction of the equipments for PVC washing recycling machine:
In this section, plastic PVC are cut into smaller pieces to achieve the required size distribution for the washing sections that follow.
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. PVC sinks to the bottom and is discharged by a screw conveyor. Remains of impurity floats on the top and are moved by rotating shovels to side of washing tank. Small screw conveyor take them out.
The wet flakes are dewatered in horizontal centrifuge. Flakes are dry to 2.5% of humidity.
Heating the flakes by electricity, the moisture can be lower than 1%
The dried and separated flakes are then packaged from the storage silos into super sacks with a high density filling system.
