Almost half of the plastic films produced in the world are thrown away after a mere single use. At Wiscon, films find their way back in use via Plastic Film Recycling Machines. Recycling technologies with the highest cost-effectiveness.
Bundles of highly contaminated films are tossed into pre-shredder. Thanks to its capability to tackle bulky and challenging materials, films can be uninterruptedly broken down into pieces. Next, shredded films are intensively washed in pre-washer at a high speed. During these 2 processes, a great amount of contaminants is primarily expelled, easing the succeeding processes and increasing the lifetime for the plastic film recycling system.
Washing and Crushing
Depending on the material cleanliness, multiple sink-float tanks and friction washers are selected. Wiscon’s proven methods of density separation and high-speed washing efficiently detach contaminants like sands, sludge, labels and grease. Washed films are then delivered to a heavy-duty wet crusher, film flakes in the desired size are pneumatically collected from crusher screen.
Drying and Dewatering
Dewatering is the most vital workflow in the plastic film recycling system because films are hygroscopic and because pelletizer requires spotless film flakes with moisture rate lower than 5%, the lower the better. Wiscon achieves this target by implementing a powerful thermal dryer plus squeeze dryer. As a result, 95% of water is either evaporated or mechanically driven out. Our know-how in dewatering helps our customers with producing the perfect dried pellets.
Today, Wiscon offers our customers top quality film recycling technologies, in conjunction with the aim of low power and water consumption on the market.
