Horizontal dryers are used to dehydrate and dry the washed PP or PE hard plastic chips or PET bottle flakes, and the dewatered plastics are better able to ensure the quality of the final product.

Our plastic dewatering machine is made of high-quality materials with sturdy and durable structure, high corrosion resistance, low maintenance cost, and long service life. The appearance of the equipment can be customized according to customers‘ needs, which can better meet customers’ production requirements.

Application Of Horizontal Dryer

This horizontal dewatering machine is more suitable for plastic buckets, baskets, disposable cups, food containers, plastic bottles, and other hard plastics. Therefore, this plastic chips dryer machine is more suitable for rigid plastic recycling plants as well as plastic bottle washing lines. Moisture affects the quality of recycled plastic granules and is an important criterion for classifying recycled PET bottle flakes.

Features of Plastic Chips Dryer Machine

  • The machine is suitable for a wide range of applications, such as PET bottles, PP/PE flakes, and so on.
  • Reasonable design, low noise, and easy to maintain, you can easily open the body to remove the screen impurities inside the dryer.
  • Good dewatering effect, dehydration rate of 98% or more, and a high degree of automation.
  • The screen, rotor, and body are made of high-quality stainless steel, which makes the horizontal dryer sturdy and durable.
  • In addition to dewatering, it also removes fine debris such as plastic sand.

Working Principle of Horizontal Dewatering Machine

The working principle of the horizontal dryer is based on the centrifugal force generated by the high-speed rotation to separate water or moisture from the plastic material. In operation, the plastic enters the rotating drum of the plastic chips dryer machine after which the motor is activated, causing the drum to rotate at high speed. This high-speed rotation generates an extremely strong centrifugal force. Through perforations or openings in the surface of the drum, the extruded moisture is effectively separated along with the centrifugal force, resulting in a drier plastic material.
