Heavy duty plastic shredder is one of the key equipment for crushing and decomposing waste plastics. It crushes the plastic through the high-speed rotating blades inside the equipment, making it into small particles that are easy to recycle and reuse. The blade gap is an important factor that affects the crushing efficiency and life of the bottle crush machine.
Role of heavy duty plastic shredder blade gap
Blade clearance has a direct impact on the working efficiency of the PET bottle shredder machine. If the blade gap is too small, it is difficult to crush the plastic. And if the blade gap is too large, it will waste energy and affect the crushing efficiency.
What is the proper blade gap？
The size of the PET bottle shredder machine blade gap is affected by a variety of factors, mainly including blade size, material, quantity, speed, and so on. Generally speaking, the size of the heavy duty plastic shredder blade gap is more appropriate between 0.1-0.5mm. Blade clearance can be adjusted according to different models and processing materials.
For rigid and brittle materials, the heavy duty plastic shredder blade gap is relatively small, which can improve the crushing efficiency and particle size uniformity. For softer materials such as plastics, the blade clearance is relatively large, which can reduce the crushing area, thus reducing energy waste.
How to make blade gap adjustments?
- Adjustment of the blade gap needs to shut down the bottle crush machine for maintenance to ensure safety.
- First, you need to clean the screen of the bottle crush machine. Check whether the blades are worn or broken and other problems.
- Adjusting the heavy duty plastic shredder blade gap requires the use of professional tools. Generally adjust the gap on both sides of the blade, and then adjust the gap of the other blades in turn.
- When adjusting the PET bottle shredder machine blade gap, you can first turn on the crusher for a test run, and then fine-tune it.
