EPS pelletizing machine is a kind of equipment specialized in expanded polystyrene recycling and processing. After a series of heating, extruding, and molding processes, the foam scrap is converted into plastic pellets for reuse. EPS granulator helps to minimize the waste of waste foam materials and also plays a positive role in environmental protection.
Raw materials for plastic foam granulator
The main raw material for EPS pelletizing machines is waste polystyrene foam. These waste foam materials can include various forms of EPS foam products, such as foam packaging materials, thermal insulation materials, foam fast food containers, and so on.
EPS foam recycling granulation process
The EPS polystyrene foam granulation process is the process of converting waste EPS foam material into reusable plastic pellets through a series of processing steps. The following is a general EPS foam pelletizing process:
- Crushing and cleaning: Firstly, the waste EPS foam material will be fed into the foam crushing machine, which will crush it into small particles by mechanical force. If the raw material is too dirty you can add a washing process to remove impurities, dirt, etc.
- Melting: The crushed EPS foam blocks are sent into the EPS pelletizing machine and melted into a liquid state by heating.
- Filtering and screw extrusion: The melted EPS material will be filtered through a screen to remove residual impurities. Next, the clean molten material is fed into the screw extruder, which extrudes it into fine strips through the die head.
- Cutting: The filamentary EPS material is fed into the pellet cutting machine, which cuts it into small pellets of appropriate length.
- Packaging and storage: Finally, the resulting EPS plastic pellets are packaged for subsequent use. Also, it can be stored in the designated storage bin.
