PET Recycling Machine

PET bottles are widely used in drinking water, carbonated drinks, fruit juices and tea drinks, etc. It is the most widely used beverage packaging today, and is also widely used in food, chemical, drug packaging and many other fields.Therefore, the recycling and utilization of waste PET bottles can not only solve environmental problems, but also be used as resources for recycling.The recycled, broken and cleaned PET bottle flakes can be used in the production of non-food packaging, chemical fiber textiles, packaging belts, sheets and other materials according to different colors and grades.

PET bottle washing recycling line can ensure the capacity: 500-3000 Kg/h.

Capacity & Basic Information

Standard plant size (output): 500kg/h, 1000kg/h, 2000kg/h, 3000kg/h, 5000kg/h


Materials Requirements

Project needs adjustment according to the condition of materials


Specs of end products --- PET flakes


- Advantage -

Inclined Conveyor Feed Belt

Inverter control
The edge is sealed by PVC sealing, which is
not easy to wear and has long use life.
Adopt rubber or PVC, equipped with barrier
strip as option.


De-baler & Weighing Section

Manually cut off the bundling wire or the straps, using a forklift to put the bale into the chain plate conveyor.The bottle bricks are spread out to a certain extent, storing a certain amount of raw materials a to ensure the uniformity and continuity of washing line feeding.

Trommel & Metal Removing Section

The high-performance trommel is used to separate the sundries, stones, glass, metal stuff and other impurities in the raw materials to reduce the production pressure in the later stage, reducing equipment wear and capacity consumption, and effectively improve product quality.


Pre-selection & L abel Separation Unit


With manual sorting, variegated impurity bottles will be selected to a large extent.Label remover will rub each bottle in turn at high speed, destroying the label attached to the bottle body.The label baling system is used to pack the separated labels and films, effectively reducing the occupation of human space.


Bottle Pre-washing Section

Under powerful stirring, the continuous bottle washing machine which combined the power functions of machinery, chemistry and heat energy will separate and remove over 90% impurities. Afterwards process equipment will be protected properly due to purified bottle bodies.

Wet-Crusher Section

When we pour water with material to crushing chamber, the friction between crushed flakes and crusher rotor will cause first step of flake washing. And most of contaminants will be separated from flakes. Even for adhesive labels, many of them will also be removed from flake surface. On the other hand, the water pouring will reduce the temperature of crushing chamber. It protects the life time of rotor, blades and bearing.


Water Separation Section

The bottle body is crushed together with the cap and the ring, which is mainly PP/PE material.Mixed fragments after grinding use the difference in specific gravity between different plastics,water separation tank will cause the PET flakes to sink and the bottle caps to float, while cleaning the PET flakes for the first stage.PP/PE material will be collected as a by-product.


Hot Washer & Friction Washer Section

Thermal, chemical and mechanical forces will be used in hot washer. The friction between the bottle flakes and the shearing force of the vortex of the medicine solution are used to remove impurities from the surface of the flakes and remove it by centrifugal dehydration.With continuous friction washer, floating washer and centrifugal dryer, chemical on the surface of the flakes will be cleaned, and the PH value of the flakes will be neutral near.

Friction washer (low speed and high speed)

Low Speed type

With speed of 600rpm;
With the function of feeding;
Dewatering, surface sludge removal.


High Speed type

With speed of 1200rpm;
Fast friction;
Dewatering, surface sludge removal.

Centrifugal dryer--- Dewatering

High speed dynamic balance treated with speed up to 2400rpm.

Moisture content less than 1.5%.


Inner shaft is made by 45# steel and nickel chrome plated ensures abrasion resistance and toughness.

Blade angle is adjustable to meet flakes of different water conte.

Label Separation Section and package system


Separate the thin film, powder and other light materials in the bottle flakes by air blow control.Shake solid, measured and weighed.

Metal Processing Unit

Magnetic metal separation:
1. Permanent magnetic belt style de-ironing separator, 0.1-35KG ,iron filings, iron.
2. Permanent magnetic drum-style sorting machine. Magnetic field intensity: 400-600GS


Non-magnetic non-ferrous:
Metal eddy current sorting machine:
1. It can be adapted to wide range of material sizes
2. Good property of demagnetization.
