Waste recovery plays a crucial role in the process of plastic recycling. It involves collecting, sorting, and processing plastic waste to extract valuable materials and reintroduce them into the production cycle.
Baling is an important process in plastic recycling that involves compressing plastic waste into bales making it easier to transport, and store, making them more convenient for further processing or shipping to recycling facilities.
Crushing is a fundamental process in plastic recycling that involves reducing the size of plastic waste to facilitate further processing. It is achieved using machines that apply mechanical forces to break down the plastic waste into smaller particles or flakes.
Cold washing, also known as ambient washing, is a process used in plastic recycling to clean and remove contaminants from plastic waste using water or a water-based solution at room temperature.
Unwashed plastic flakes refer to plastic flakes or particles that have not undergone a washing process as part of the plastic recycling process. These flakes are typically generated during the initial stages of plastic recycling, such as shredding or grinding plastic waste into smaller pieces.
Cold washed Flakes
Cold washed plastic flakes are plastic flakes or particles that have undergone a washing process using cold water or a water-based solution to remove contaminants and impurities. Cold washing is typically performed at room temperature and relies on mechanical action to dislodge and remove surface contaminants from the plastic flakes.
