Plastic flakes hot washer
Hot washer for PET flakes
A plastic flakes hot wash machine, or also known as a PET hot washer, is an indispensable piece of equipment for any plastic recycling industry producing recyclables requiring food-grade or high-quality grades. Adding this machine to the washing line of plastics such as PET, HDPE, PP/PE, etc., removes contaminants such as adhesives, scrap label remnants, drink and food residues, odor, etc.
High energy efficiency and continuous operation
Depending on your throughput requirements, B+B customizes the plastic hot washer with a number of washing chambers that are continuously filled and emptied in a revolving principle. Also, the machine is provided with a closed cleaning water circuit that automatically purifies the washing solution and passes it through a heat exchanger before reentering the washing chamber.
