What is a Car Bumper Shredder (car bumper shredding)?
On each automobile, there is a plastic fence installed over a metal reinforcing bar. It is placed at the front and rear of vehicles and is designed to protect the car body in case of collision by absorbing the impact. With the rapid development of the economy, an increasing number of people can afford to buy cars, resulting in more and more cars being produced, used and discarded.
Vehicle bumper recycling is a good solution for the environment because it saves plastic materials. Also, it is a profitable business to turn waste bumpers into valuable plastic granules.
Car bumper shredder is an ideal recycling machine to crush plastic bumpers over 1-meter in the first place. In the auto bumper recycling process, unwanted materials such as metal fittings are manually first removed. Next, bumpers are transported into a shredder by an infeed conveyor and then the bumper is shredded into small pieces(40mm). An industrial shredder’s slow-rotating rotor shears and cuts car bumpers into pieces. With the help of a hydraulic pusher, a load of car bumpers is broken down.
The shredder can integrate with other recycling machines such as scrap plastic washing line to produce clean, dry and small granules. The granules are ready for injection molding and blow molding.
Conventionally, scrap vehicle bumpers are incinerated to recover thermal energy (thermal recycling). With the growing awareness of environmental protection and improved technology, end-of-life vehicle (ELV) bumpers are now collected and recycled into raw plastic resin for use in the production of new plastic products such as green mesh, geogrids, building materials, waterproofing materials, etc.
Shredders for bumpers are designed to work as a complete and functional system with reduced investment costs and minimal labour involved. Simply consisting of conveyors, shredder, and granulator, a shredding system can turn waste into wealth. This solution was obtained without compromises through the automatic management of all components by means of a dedicated PLC.
The recycled raw material from scrap vehicle bumpers can also be converted into new vehicle bumpers by mixing the raw material with 7% fiberglass as well as a certain percentage of PBT material. This environmentally-friendly business not only improves the material recycling rate (MRR) but also contributes significantly to the more efficient use of resources.
