Process of Plastic Recycling: Making Plastic Pellets

Collection and Sorting

Collecting Plastic Waste
The journey starts with the collection of plastic waste. This includes plastic bottles, containers, packaging, and other used plastic products. Collection points can be residential recycling bins, industrial waste collectors, or public recycling centers.
Curbside Collection: Homeowners place their plastic waste in recycling bins, which are picked up by municipal services.
Drop-off Points: Individuals can bring their plastic waste to designated recycling centers.
Commercial Collection: Businesses and factories have systems to collect and recycle their plastic waste.
Sorting the Plastic
Once collected, the plastic waste needs to be sorted. Different types of plastics must be separated because they have varying properties and recycling processes.
Manual Sorting: Workers manually separate different plastics based on type and color.
Automated Sorting: Machines use sensors to identify and sort plastics by type (e.g., PET, HDPE, PVC) and color.


Washing the Plastic
Before the plastic can be processed into pellets, it must be thoroughly cleaned to remove contaminants like labels, adhesives, and residues.
Rinsing: The plastic is rinsed with water to remove loose dirt and debris.
Detergents and Scrubbing: For tougher residues, detergents and mechanical scrubbing are used.
Drying: The cleaned plastic is then dried using air or heat to remove moisture.


Shredding the Plastic
The clean plastic waste is fed into shredders, which break it down into smaller pieces called flakes. This step makes the material easier to handle in the pelletization process.
Rotary Shredders: Use rotating blades to cut the plastic into small pieces.
Granulators: Further reduce the size of the shredded plastic, making it fine enough for the next steps.

Melting and Extruding

Melting the Plastic
The plastic flakes are then melted down to form a viscous liquid. This can be done using various methods:
Extruders: Machines that apply heat and pressure to melt the plastic.
Injection Molding: For certain types of recycling, the plastic might be melted and molded into specific shapes.

Extruding the Melted Plastic
The melted plastic is forced through a die (a shaped hole) to form long strands or ribbons.
Single-Screw Extruders: Common in smaller recycling operations, these use one screw to push the plastic through the die.
Twin-Screw Extruders: Use two screws to mix and push the plastic, providing better control over the plastic’s properties.


Cooling the Extruded Plastic
As the plastic exits the extruder, it needs to be cooled and solidified. This is typically done using water baths or air cooling systems.
Water Bath: The plastic strands are passed through a water bath to quickly cool them.
Air Cooling: Alternatively, air cooling systems blow cool air over the strands to solidify them.


Cutting into Pellets
The solidified plastic strands are then cut into small, uniform pellets. These pellets are easy to handle and transport, making them ideal for manufacturing new plastic products.
Strand Pelletizers: Cut the strands into pellets as they come out of the cooling system.
Underwater Pelletizers: Cut the strands into pellets while they are still submerged in water, reducing dust and improving pellet quality.

Storing and Packaging Pellets
The finished pellets are dried to remove any remaining moisture and then packaged for sale or transportation to manufacturers.
Drying: Ensures the pellets are free of moisture before packaging.
Bagging: Pellets are placed in bags or containers for easy transport and storage.

Answering Questions on Plastic Recycling Machines

Find answers to commonly asked questions about our products and services.

Which type of plastic recycling machine should I choose?

Choosing the right plastic recycling machine depends on a variety of factors, including the type of plastic you are processing (e.g. PET, PE, PP, etc.), desired production capacity, quality requirements and budget. Common plastic recycling machines include single and twin screw extruders, crushers, washing equipment and pelletizers. For large-scale production and high quality requirements, twin-screw extruders are usually the better choice, while single-screw extruders are suitable for smaller-scale operations.

How often are plastic recycling machines maintained?

The frequency of maintenance for plastic recycling machines depends on the intensity of use and the type of equipment. Typically, it is recommended to carry out basic inspection and cleaning on a daily basis, a comprehensive mechanical and electrical system check on a monthly basis, and more in-depth maintenance such as replacing wear parts, checking screws and heaters, etc. on a quarterly basis. Regular maintenance helps to extend the life of the equipment and ensures production stability and efficiency.

How much is a plastic recycling machine?

The price of a plastic recycling machine generally starts at around $10,000 for basic models. However, for comprehensive and efficient industrial machines, the cost can exceed $500,000. These prices depend on machine specifications, including output capacity, automation level, and additional features like filtration systems and advanced controls.

How to make a plastic recycling machine at home?

Building a plastic recycling machine at home involves researching and designing the process, gathering materials, constructing components like a shredder, extruder, and pelletizer, and ensuring safety and functionality through testing, but it can be complex and may be more practical to buy a commercial machine.

What machines are used to recycle plastic?

In plastic recycling, machines like shredders, washers, extruders, pelletizers, granulators, separation units, filtration systems, and cooling systems collaborate to convert waste plastic into reusable pellets for new product manufacturing.
