QINFENG EPS Compactor and EPS Washing Line: Industrial Recycling Allies

It’s estimated that humans have used over 8 billion tons of plastic, with an annual increase of 385 million tons. However, less than 10% of plastics are recycled each year. The remaining waste plastic foam piles up in landfills or is discharged randomly into rivers and oceans. This will cause environmental pollution and blockage. In addition, this waste foam that enters the water body eventually breaks down into tiny forms. And then it seeps into our bodies through water.

With the popularity of recycling. The recycling rate of EPS plastics has improved year by year from the original 0%, but there are still cases where some companies prefer to risk violating environmental laws. Waste EPS is discarded, landfilled and incinerated. Relevant industry people in the United States pointed out. On the one hand, people think EPS is mostly air. As a result, only a very small amount of usable material can be obtained from a large number of EPS, and recycling costs are high. On the other hand, due to some EPS packaging. Food boxes and seafood containers, for example, may be contaminated during food transportation. As a result, some practitioners argue that recycling these foam wastes is costly or may not be feasible.

Solution

Here, we recommend QINFENG’s EPS Washing Line. After collection and sorting, practitioners often hesitate to choose expensive manual cleaning. Therefore, specialized pre-treatment equipment is necessary. Chemical cleaning and high-pressure water are good choices, but they inevitably cause damage to the recycled EPS foam plastic and require relatively cumbersome operations. QINFENG’s washing line, however, employs a production line comprising a washing machine, sink, flotation tank, horizontal centrifugal dryer, extruder or squeezer, and condenser. This process effectively removes residual dirt on a large scale, with simple operation, high efficiency, and low energy consumption.

Subsequently, through QINFENG’s EPS Compactor, volume compression is performed to expel air from the EPS. Different models of EPS compactors correspond to different occasions, compressing the volume to 1/30 to 1/50 of the original, significantly reducing transportation and storage costs. The compressed blocks can then be transported to recycling plants or manufacturers for reuse, achieving a beneficial economic cycle of recycling and reuse. Even without an EPS washing line, for example, foam plastic boxes in seafood markets only require pouring out excess water. QINFENG’s CF-CP380EPS Compactor, designed for specific occasions, can also achieve efficient and quick recycling.

Waste Compression: QINFENG's CF-CP380 EPS Foam Cold Compression Machine

The CF-CP380EPS Cold Compactor has a production capacity of 150-200kg per hour, equipped with four sets of 3kW crusher motors and a 15kW screw motor. This model is suitable for large supermarkets and seafood markets and can be used by large-scale EPS waste recycling companies to compress waste materials. Customers typically compress EPS foam blocks into dimensions of 380mm x 380mm.
