When it comes to reducing plastic waste, traditional plastic shredder and granulator lines are a well-established solution. However, investing in these systems can be costly, and they also take up considerable space. This makes it challenging for smaller businesses or those with limited resources to take advantage of these systems. To address these issues, the all-in-one plastic shredder and granulator machine was developed. This innovative technology provides an affordable and space-saving option for reducing plastic waste. In this article, we'll explore the features and benefits of the shredder and granulator combo and its successful implementation in various industries.
Compared to a stand-alone plastic shredder or plastic granulator line that includes a conveyor belt, shredder, crusher, and aggregate system, the shredder and granulator combo simplifies the entire process into a single integrated machine. This makes it much easier for operators to manage the shredding and granulating process, reducing the need for additional equipment and labor.
This advanced equipment is designed to shred plastic materials into small pieces and then granulate them into uniformly sized plastic pellets that are more manageable and easy to transport. By adopting this dual-purpose machine, various benefits can be realized when compared to traditional plastic reprocessing methods. For instance, the equipment is more compact, easier to maintain, and incurs significantly lower investment costs. Moreover, the cost of wear parts is significantly reduced, and energy consumption can be cut by up to 7%.
But, how does this shredder and granulator combo machine function? The equipment has a unique design with a shredding area located at the top. It features a small-blade-rotor-shaft arrangement with a forced feeding mechanism to ensure efficient shredding. The crushing area is located below, and the rotor shaft and feeding mode can be adjusted based on the characteristics and output of the materials being crushed. The machine first shreds plastic waste into smaller fragments, which are then granulated into uniformly sized plastic pellets. The pellets can be stored for use in producing new plastic products, thereby closing the loop of minimizing plastic waste and promoting sustainable practices.
One significant advantage of this equipment is that it eliminates the need for conveying equipment, as the shredded and crushed materials can be easily collected. Furthermore, the machine has a compact design that requires less floor space, making it a cost-effective option for businesses.
The shredder and granulator combo machine is an increasingly popular solution for plastic recycling and reprocessing due to its efficiency and practicality. This advanced equipment boasts several key features that make it a reliable and cost-effective option :
The machine's closely arranged small-blade-rotor-shaft structure and forced feeding mechanism allow for efficient shredding of plastic scraps and wastes, including tough-to-process materials. It can handle a wide variety of plastic materials, such as PET, PP, PS, and vinyl, in various forms, including lumps, post-consumer products, and post-industrial refuse. The machine can also shred other scrap materials, such as soft metals and cables.
The machine's compact design has a small footprint, making it ideal for businesses with limited space. It can save up to 86% of space.
This combo machine combines two pieces of equipment into one, saving the cost of conveyors needed to connect them. This results in energy savings of up to 7% compared to separate shredder and granulator lines.
Compared to stand-alone shredders and granulators, this all-in-one machine integrates a conveyor belt, shredder, crusher, and aggregate system, simplifying the entire process into a single integrated machine. This means that maintenance is much easier. The machine's compact design makes it easier to maintain and results in a significant reduction in overall equipment investment costs. Additionally, wear part costs are reduced.
The shredding and granulation process ensures that all plastic waste is fully utilized, effectively reducing material waste during the plastic scrap recycling and reprocessing process.
The machine is designed to operate with minimal noise emission, making it an ideal option for businesses located in noise-sensitive areas.
The shredding and granulating system can handle a broad range of plastic sizes and shapes, ensuring that all plastic waste or scrap is fully utilized.
The shredder and granulator combo machines are widely used in the recycling industry. These machines can process a wide range of materials. The shredder is responsible for breaking down the materials into smaller pieces, while the granulator further grinds the pieces into granules that are readily recyclable. This method is essential for the recycling industry as it helps to reduce waste and promote resource conservation.
The plastic and rubber manufacturing industry heavily relies on shredder and granulator combo machines. These machines are used to process materials such as plastic rubber, lumps, plates, scrap, frames, pipes and PET bottles, and more! The shredder reduces these materials into smaller pieces, while the granulator refines them into granules that can be used to create new plastic and rubber products. This process effectively reduces the waste generated by these industries and promotes resource conservation.
There are lots of industrial sectors that can benefit from shredder and granulator combo machines. Here are 2 case studies :
