PE PP Plastic Films Dewatering Machine Brief Descriptions
PE PP Plastic Films Dewatering Machine uses centrifugal force to partially remove water
from a flowing stream of material. It has the unique ability to take in material with high
water content and reducing to low levels. When used in our PE film washing line or PET
bottle washing line, the dewatering machine is first in a series of machines.
The dewatering machine or horizontal centrifuge is actually very similar to a friction
washer. That is, at the center of both machines is a long shaft mounted with many panels or
paddles. Surrounding this fast spinning shaft is a mesh screen tunnel. The entire apparatus
is encased in a metal container where an electric motor is externally mounted.
As material is fed into the vertical feeder, the shaft spins at nearly 1,000 rotations per
minute. The material within is continuously thrown outwards against the mesh screen tunnel.
Water that pass through the mesh tunnel is collected for recycling while the plastic moves
onto the next drying equipment, usually a thermal dryer. Usually speaking, a dewatering
machine can lower moisture content to roughly 20-30%.
