ASG’s PET flakes washing machine is a cold wash system that uses friction to scrub off dirt and debris. Hence, this piece of recycling equipment is often times referred to as a “high speed friction washer”.
Although our cold wash system is highly effective in cleaning PET flakes, we suggest the implementation of a hot wash system in addition to this equipment as per our standard PET bottle recycling lines.
How It Works
Our PET flakes washing machine works by mixing the flakes at high speeds within a washing chamber. This allows the PET flakes to rub against each other scrubbing off unwanted contaminants.
The PET flakes are mixed together using a lengthly shaft mounted with many slanted paddles that spins at nearly 1,000 rotations per minute. The flakes are held within the washing machine via a large cylindrical mesh screen. As PET flakes enter the washing machine, the spinning paddles constantly bombard the flakes propelling them against each other. Water jets are mounted on the outside of the mesh screen tunnel and directed onto the mesh screen to add water to the washing chamber and to prevent clogging.
|Model #:||Motor Power:||Main Shaft Diameter:||Rotating Speed:||Capacity:|
|HXJ400||37KW||400mm||1400 RPM||400 – 800 KG/H|
|HXJ550||45KW||550mm||1200 RPM||600 – 1000 KG/H|
|HXJ750||55KW||750mm||1080 RPM||1200 – 2000 KG/H|
Placing An Order
For single machinery orders, the lead time is generally 30 days. For complete PET recycling lines, the lead time is generally between 60 – 90 days. For custom projects, the lead time will be based on the complexity of the project. The above are estimated lead times, final lead times will be based on the number of equipment we have in queue at the time of your purchase.
