A plastic bag shredder is a kind of recycling machine specialized in processing plastic film material. It can quickly and effectively pulverize plastic film material like plastic bags and agricultural films into small particles for subsequent reprocessing and recycling.

What is the best way to shred plastic bags?

Shredding plastic bags by using a shredder machine is the most efficient. The plastic bag shredder is to physically break the plastic film material into smaller particles through the rotation and impact of the knives.

Generally, the plastic bag shredder is mainly composed of electric motor, knife system and screen system. When the plastic film material is fed into the machine, the electric motor drives the knives to rotate, while the sharp edges of the knives will cut and tear the plastic film material.

After many cuts and impacts, the plastic film material gradually becomes smaller and forms smaller particles. These particles are separated by a screen, so that the larger particles continue to return to the knife for further crushing, while the particles that have reached the required size are discharged from the screen and become the final crushed product.

Typically, the diameter of the screen is 40-50 millimeters.
