Rigid Plastic Shredder Machine Overview

This rigid plastic shredder machine by Shuliy is a multi-functional unit that can be used in a rigid plastic recycling granulating line or as a stand-alone unit. Their main function is to crush materials such as rigid plastic buckets, plastic baskets, plastic toys, pipes, PVC pipes, HDPE containers, etc. into smaller pieces.

Materials Handled And Finished Products

The hard plastic shredder excels at processing a wide range of waste materials, including plastic buckets, baskets, toys, pipes, PVC pipes, HDPE containers, appliance housings, and more. The finished product of this crushing process is crushed plastic, which serves as a convenient raw material for subsequent cleaning and pelletizing in plastics recycling.

How Does The Plastic Crusher Work?

Structure Of Hard Plastic Shredder

The structure of the machine includes several key components that together contribute to its efficient operation:

  • Inlet: This is where the plastic material enters the machine.
  • Crushing chamber: The area where the actual crushing of the plastic takes place. Usually consists of one or more pairs of blades that cut, tear, and shred plastic materials in a fast-rotating state.
  • Blades: Precision-designed blades ensure effective cutting and breaking. The blades are made of 60Si2Mn material with high hardness and wear resistance.
  • Screen: A critical component that helps to control the size of the broken plastic. It ensures that only particles of the specified size pass through, while larger particles are retained for further comminution. For rigid plastics, screen diameters between 20 mm and 26 mm are commonly used.

How To Maintain A Rigid Plastic Waste Crusher?

Regular blade cleaning: Ensure that the blades are regularly inspected and cleaned to remove any residue that may have adhered to them during the shredding process to keep them sharp and working efficiently.

Checking screen wear: Regularly check the screen for wear and tear, and replace it in time if it is worn or damaged to maintain the screening effect and production quality.

Lubricate the bearings: Regular lubrication of the bearings of the rigid plastic shredder machine ensures good operation and reduces wear and tear.

Pay attention to the condition of the feed inlet: Keep the feed inlet clean and avoid the entry of foreign objects to prevent the normal operation of the machine from being adversely affected.

Timely handling of abnormal sounds: For any abnormal noise or vibration, carry out timely inspection and adjustment to prevent potential malfunctions.
