In the recycling business, washing is an imperative step to increase the value of the desired materials. Sink-float tanks and friction washing machines are the common means to achieve this goal.
Friction Washer Machine is used to remove dirt and contaminant from plastic flakes and film.
The main components are the large rotor with several arrays of paddles, dewatering screen and cleaning manifold for water injection. The Friction Washer is accumulated on an inclined frame. The fast-rotating shaft and paddles transport up and hit the materials against the screen, just like how a laundry machine works. Dirt and grease are then driven out of the system, and sprayed away by water nozzles. The dirty water and contaminant then discharge at the bottom of the machine. The cleaned materials leave at the top.
Wiscon Friction Washer is commonly used in various applications in industrial processes and the recycling business. Without it, the end product may contain a high portion of contaminants. As a result, the final value of the end-product is low because it contains sands and grease, both of which are dangerous for palletizing and injection molding.
The friction washer is heavy duty and available in various models, featuring:
Clean highly contaminated materials or big plastic flakes or plastic films which come from a primary shredder or from a crusher. It excels in cleaning agricultural films, rigid plastics, and PET, PP, PE, HDPE flakes.
If your plastic flakes are not heavily contaminated, the flakes are immediately wet washed to obtain clean regrinds. Following by a vertical dryer and an extraction, the regrinds are easily collected, saving your labour costs.
