Plastics are ubiquitous in homes, cars, medicine… They are used for packaging, electronics or even in the sports field.
Rugged, lightweight, economical and recyclable plastics have become an essential and indispensable element of our lives. In a society that cares about the environment, the recycling market becomes inevitable.
Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessiong the material into useful products, sometimes completely different in form from their original state.
For instance, this could mean melting down soft drink bottles and then casting them as plastic chairs and tables.
Typically a plastic is not recycled into the same type of plastic, and products made from recycled plastics are often not recyclable.
The granulator is the most common type of pulverizer used with plastic recycling. It is able of turning jugs, large bottles, and other plastic products into flakes, which are referred to as granules. The machine itself is essentially a large electric motor with a rotor.
Plastic recycling is becoming an increasingly large business. In fact, just between 2000 to 2011, the number of plastic recycling plants grew from 1,677 to 3,229. Plastic recycling is a relatively simple process after the various types of plastic have been separated from one another.
