Applied Machinery’s HDPE Bottle and Container Washing System

Applied Machinery’s range of plastic-washing systems are designed for high-performance recovery of rigid and flexible plastics derived from a variety of sources.

The modular systems tackle HDPE bottles, PE films, PP woven bags and PET bottles.

A standout of the range is Applied’s Genox modular HDPE Bottle and Container Washing System, which is designed for ridged plastics with a wall thickness ranging from 1-25 millimetres.

The HDPE Bottle and Container washer features a wear resistant shredding system that works to maximise operating time and throughput via consistent processing.

Next, a high-speed washing system, with corresponding speed according to material type, liberates contamination for plastic flakes.

The washing tank’s under-water force-washing paddles then work to amplify washing efficiency, while mechanical and thermal drying systems reduce end product moisture.

Label separation can be achieved with advanced wind separation, while shredding and washing are set at calculated intensities to avoid over friction and material loss.

Intelligent system automation ensures that all component actions are sequenced and monitored.

The HDPE Bottle and Container Washing System features an inclined friction washer, float-sink washing tank and vertical dewatering machine, before material passes through a zig-zag classifier.

The behemoth single-shaft shredder

Applied Machinery’s BH Series heavy-duty single shaft shredder can be considered a “behemoth.”

The heavy-duty size reduction machine is designed for shredding a wide variety of materials with the powerful, wear resistant machine structure well suited to demanding recycling applications.

Applications include municipal solid, industrial and demolition waste, wood waste, plastics, alternative fuels and a range of other items.

Its v-cutting rotor design allows for staggered cutter positioning alongside heat treated and adjustable counter knives ensuring cutter clearance can be maintained.

A classifier screen enables accurate particle size control while a force feeding ram supports a precision machined chamber base with adjustable/replaceable brass guides.

The machine’s powerful electric drive motors, heavy duty oversized gearboxes and shock absorption system ensure smooth processing with improved performance. Its bearings, hydraulic opening design and electrical control panel mean the machine is robust and intuitive.

Other equally capable machines include GC Series Granulators, ideal for a range of materials such as plastics, rubber and fibres and K Series high performance single shaft shredders suitable for processing a wide range of materials.

Applied Machinery works with its customers to find the right machine for them, with a number of Genox shredders and granulators also available for niche applications.

Genox’s size reduction solutions

Applied Machinery offers a wide range of size reduction equipment to handle a variety of challenging waste streams and applications, from metal to tyres and cables. 

To process metals, Genox’s metal recycling plants handle a variety of metallic waste streams, including light iron scrap, vehicle shells and body panels (end-of-life vehicles), steel drums, white goods, electronic scrap and computer waste.

Genox tyre recycling technology features pre-shredding, recirculation systems, secondary size reductions, steel wire separation, fine granulation, product classifying, textile separation and dust collection.

For a high-volume processing machine, Genox’s cable recycling plants comprise functions which include pre-shredding, steel removal, granulation and copper or aluminium plastic separation.

A wider scope of applications is covered by Genox X Series Twin Shaft Shredders, equipped with powerful drive motors and high torque gearboxes. The robust pre-shredders are ideal for processing large volumes of various waste materials. 

The maintenance-friendly-designed machines feature options such as drive motor power and gearing, hydraulic drive, hydraulic force feeder and rotary screens.

High-speed granulation in a single pass can be achieved through GC Series Granulators that are ideal for processing materials such as plastics, rubber, fibres, copper cable and light non-ferrous metals. The machines are characterised by high efficiency, reduced power consumption and low noise and sound proof designs. 

Bulky or voluminous materials are handled with the Applied Machinery M Series, characterised by their efficient, high torque and low power consumption design.
