hard plastic crusher

In the complex process of plastic recycling, the hard plastic crusher plays a key role in effectively crushing waste hard plastic into small pieces for subsequent recycling and pelletizing. Global sales of the rigid plastic shredder machine have proved its excellent performance and reliability.

The hard plastic shredder is a kind of machinery specialized in crushing all kinds of rigid plastic materials. The blades made of high-strength steel can efficiently pulverize hard plastics such as ABS, PVC, PC, etc. into small particles. The overall structure of the machine is sturdy to ensure long time operation.

Do You Know the Structure of Plastic Scrap Shredder?

Our plastic scrap shredder is composed of several key components, each intricately designed and manufactured to ensure high performance and reliability. Among these critical structural components are:

  • Feeding Port: Designed with precision, the feeding port ensures a steady and uniform entry of plastic waste into the crushing chamber, enhancing shredding efficiency.
  • Crushing Chamber: Tailored specifically for rigid plastics, the crushing chamber effectively pulverizes waste, ensuring the quality of the end product.
  • Blades: Carefully selected high-strength blades, coupled with a well-designed knife frame, efficiently cut and crush rigid plastics.
  • Screen: The screen in a rigid plastic shredder machine is used to manage the size of the plastic pieces being crushed, and it serves to ensure that only pieces that meet the criteria pass through, while larger pieces are intercepted for further shredding.

Operation Principle of HDPE shredder machine

The operation principle of the hard plastic crusher is relatively simple yet highly effective. During operation, discarded rigid plastics are fed into the feeding port. They undergo cutting and impact by the blades within the crushing chamber, ultimately processed into fine plastic fragments. These fragments serve as a crucial intermediary product, facilitating subsequent granulation processes.

FAQs of Hard Plastic Shredder

Which types of plastics are suitable for the hard plastic crusher?

Our rigid plastic shredder machine is suitable for various types of rigid plastic waste, including PVC pipes, plastic barrels, HDPE containers, HDPE bottles, plastic toys, and more.

How can I adjust the size of the plastic fragment?

Our plastic scrap shredder comes with screens of different specifications. You can select the appropriate screen according to your production needs to control the size of the plastic fragment.

Can it handle large volumes of plastic waste?

Yes, Shuliy’s hard plastic crusher is designed to efficiently process plastic waste of different volumes.

How should maintenance of the plastic scrap shredder be conducted?

Regularly clean the blades and screens, ensure good ventilation of the hard plastic shredder, and regularly inspect the functioning of transmission components to extend the machine’s lifespan.

Use of Knife Sharpener

When using the hard plastic crusher, we strongly recommend regularly employing a blade sharpening machine to maintain the blades. Typically, the blades require sharpening every 2 to 3 days, and this maintenance practice offers several benefits.

Firstly, blade sharpening ensures that the blades maintain a sharp cutting edge, ensuring efficient shredding of plastic waste. Secondly, sharpening the blades effectively extends their lifespan, reducing the frequency of blade replacements and minimizing production interruptions. Additionally, regular blade sharpening helps maintain the stability and operational efficiency of the hard plastic shredder, thereby enhancing production efficiency.

By fully utilizing a blade sharpening machine in the production process, you can ensure that the rigid plastic shredder machine consistently operates at its best, achieving continuous and efficient shredding and processing of plastic waste.
