A PE PP film washing line is a specialized system used for recycling and washing post-consumer or post-industrial waste plastic films made of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP). These plastic films are commonly used in the packaging industry for products such as grocery bags, plastic wrap, and agricultural films.
Main equipment of plastic film washing line
The PE PP plastic film washing line typically consists of several components, including a conveyor belt, plastic shredder machine, friction washer, sink-float separation tank, and centrifugal dryer.
The first step in the process is to feed the plastic films into the shredder to reduce them into smaller pieces. Then, the shredded plastic is washed with hot water and detergents in the friction washer to remove any dirt or contaminants.
After that, the plastic is passed through a sink-float separation tank, where the heavier contaminants like sand and dirt sink to the bottom and are removed, and the lighter plastic films float on the surface and are collected.
Finally, the plastic is dried in a vertical dryer machine and collected in a large storage bin.
