The EPS foam granulating line could process waste foam into particles. And these plastic particles could apply to make packaging, insulation, and other materials. The EPE styrofoam pelletizing machine includes a foam granulator machine, cooling tank, pellet cutting machine, control panel, and others. For the pre-processed machine, there are EPS foam melting machines, and EPE foam compactor machines, which could save space for transporting waste foam.

What are EPS polystyrene foam and EPE styrofoam?
EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) is a lightweight polymer. It uses polystyrene resin to add a foaming agent, and at the same time, it is heated to soften and generate gas, forming a rigid closed-cell structure foam.
This uniformly closed cavity structure makes the EPS have the characteristics of low water absorption, good heat preservation, lightweight, and high mechanical strength. EPS can be molded into shape, that is, it can be pre-expanded into particles, and then formed into various shapes in the mold. It has poor toughness, easy to break, and general cushioning performance.
EPE (Expandable Polyethylene) is commonly known as pearl cotton. The density is small, the flexibility is good, and the recovery rate is high. Excellent shockproof performance, independent bubble structure, low surface water absorption. Good impermeability. It is resistant to acid, alkali, salt, oil, and other organic solvents, and has excellent aging resistance. It does not flow at high temperatures and does not crack at low temperatures.
EPE can be extruded or foamed and can be made into plates, sheets, or pipes, and then punched and cut and bonded to form. It has good toughness, is not easy to break, and has good cushioning properties.
EPS Polystyrene Foam granulating line
The EPS polystyrene foam granulating line could process waste foam made of polystyrene into particles. The line includes a granulator machine, water tank, pellet cutting machine, a control cabinet. The main machine is an EPS foam granulator, which includes two machines, combining the functions of crushing and melting.
- Model: 220+150
- Double reducer
- Electric mould as picture(change net without stopping machine)
This foam granulator machine includes a crusher, and a pellet making machine. This EPS foam granulation machine consists of an auxiliary machine, the main machine, a die head, a grinder. It has different types according to the output. Since EPS foam is prone to debris during processing, customers could cover the feed inlet with the cloth.
This cooling machine is used to cool the plastic pellet and send the pellet to the next step-plastic cutting machine. Customers could also customize the tank according to their demands, but the most common length is 3 meters.
This machine is used to cut the plastic strip into small pieces and the size of the pellet can be adjusted as your requirements.
The temperature control cabinet controls the temperature of the plastic pellet machine and also makes people easy to operate the machine.
EPE Styrofoam pelletizing machine
This EPE styrofoam pelletizing processing plant includes a draught fan, an EPE foam pelleting making machine, a water tank, a pellet cutting machine, a control panel. And the foam granulator machine could crush and heat plastic foam.
Blow up the foam so that the foam enters the inlet.
EPE foam pellet making machine
The raw material is heated and melted in this machine, and the melted foam is drawn through the die in the machine. This EPE foam pellet making machine is composed of a distribution cabinet, an inlet, guard, vent, die head. The foam pellet machine adopts a conical screw barrel with fast feeding speed and high output.
- Model SL-160
- Machine size:3400*2100*1600mm
- Inlet size:780*780mm
- Heating method: heating ring
This styrofoam melting machine can melt waste foam into lumps, reduce the volume, and facilitate transportation. It has a large output, high efficiency, low dust, and noise, consumes less energy, easy to operate. The full temperature control of this melting machine can avoid the phenomenon of foam burning or not melting.
Feeding port size: 450*600mm
Heating power: 3kw
EPS foam compactor machine
The EPS foam compactor can crush the foam first and then extrudes it according to the spiral rotation. It can effectively double the volume of the foam and increase the density. It is convenient for the transportation and recycling of waste foam. There are two types of compactors, Vertical EPS foam compactor, and Horizontal EPS foam compactor.
Product features of EPE foam densifier
