Crushing, disposal and compaction of PET bottles in a single process with the HSM PET press
The crusher-press combination HSM PET CP 4988 is an effective system for the recycling of PET bottles. The machine consists of a PET crusher and a PET press. In a single process, the volume of empty PET bottles is reduced by up to 90% and compacted into raw material bales. As a result, you save valuable space, time and money when it comes to the storage and transportation of empty PET bottles to be sent for recycling.
The sophisticated technology of the HSM crusher-press combinations
Empty PET bottles are fed manually into a large loading hopper. Technically, it is also possible for loading to be automatic. The special roller system perforates and compresses the plastic bottles. The side walls thus interlock, ensuring maximum volume reduction. A further benefit of crushing is the reliable compaction of PET deposit bottles and cans.
The crusher rollers are made from a specially hardened and polished steel. The equipment as a whole is durable, robust and built to last. The machine is controlled by an easy-to-operate membrane keyboard. A metering shaft with several paddles ensures that the PET bottles or cans are reliably collected from the rollers. A scraper system ensures that the compressed plastic bottles and cans are removed from the rollers. The operational width is 490 mm and the loading height is approximately 1500 mm. Up to 4000 litre bottles can be processed in one hour. A drainage system purges any residual liquid before the bottles enter the press. The pressing process is controlled automatically by means of a photocell. In the downstream PET press with a pressing force of 11 tonnes, the crushed bottles are compressed into raw material bales weighing up to 100 kg. The bales have a cross-section of 500 x 500 mm and are up to 1200 mm long. They are bound manually with a polyester strap.
