IBC disposal machine is suitable for in-housing recycling and solid waste recycling and plastic tank recycling.
IBCs (intermediate bulk containers) are a cubic container with a super large volume, with features of easily containing, storing and transporting fluid in mass. As the barrel is made of HDPE pellets, a chemically stable polymer, many IBCs are used for containing chemicals.
Every year millions of IBCs go to landfills and incineration after single use, although some clients prefer reconditioned and washed IBCs. An IBC reaches its service life after 4-8 times of use. For recycling end-of-life IBCs, shredding is the primary step. Regardless of what IBCs originally contain, an industrial shredder receives IBCs and size reduces to 40mm stripes.
Shredding saves labour and time. More importantly, it eliminates the risk of liquid spillage and manual cutting of the container. Once an IBC falls in the shredding chamber, the tooth of blades catches the container and shears it into stripes within 10 seconds.
A twin-shaft shredder or quad-shaft shredder is suggested shredding equipment.
The overall shredding solution is compact. The double-deck structure allows to minize footprint and prevent regrinds from flying out. Plus, the regrinds can hook up to a washing line to further wash and clean the dirt and chemicals. All containers shall be clean and free of residue prior to disposal/recycling. A cleaner container would have a better result.
55 gallon (200 Litre) plastic drums are turned into HDPE plastic pellets via the system. Regardless of reconditioned, disposed, refurbished or rinsed, this recycling plant can take in all sizes of blue drums/barrels.
It is easier than you think to start a plastic tank recycling business!
