Introduction of friction washing machine

PET bottle flake friction washing machine is mainly used for PET bottle flake cleaning and conveying. The broken bottle flakes are fed into the friction washer by the screw loader. The screw rotates under the drive of the motor, and the bottle flakes move forward and get cleaned under the push of the blades.

How does friction washers work?

The high-speed friction washer consists of a high-speed rotor surrounded by a removable screen. The high-speed rotor ensures that the material is “scrubbed” and “tapped” inside the screen. Multiple nozzles spray water onto the screen to continuously remove contaminants and dirt. The contaminants and dirty water are then discharged through the perforated screen and collected at the bottom.

Plastic friction washers are placed at a 45-degree angle to maximize friction and carry out impurities and contaminants.

Principle of plastic bottle washing machine

Friction washing machines work on the principle of mechanical friction and centrifugal force, just like washing machines.

What can high-speed friction washers be used for?

The high-speed friction washer is usually used behind the plastic bottle crusher. It can be used for washing PP, PE, HDPE, PVC, and ABS flakes.

In all kinds of recyclable waste plastic cleaning lines, most of them will apply plastic friction washers. The machine’s high-speed washing method makes it plays an important role in the plastic bottle washing recycling line.
