Plastic Granules Making Machine Manufacturers (for Recycling and Pelletizing) :

Plastics granules making machine Manufacturers (Ahmedabad, Gujarat) which works on a principal of plastic extrusion process, is a normally high volume manufacturing process where a polymer material, enriched with the desired additives, is melted and formed in a continuous process. Where output can get form of granules, tubes, sheets, lumps and etc.

How It Works :

In the entire process, A plastic material, normally in flakes form is placed into hopper of extruder, usually made from fabricated from mild steel or fabricated from stainless steel as per material requirement. There is a hopper magnet fitted inside the hopper to stop metallic particles from entering inside the barrel. The raw material in the form of flakes, is gravity fed into the hopper and through the feed throat, drop on the rotating screw. Barrel has several amount of heaters fitted on the outer diameter. Which heats up the barrel to get extrusion process job done. Screw is connected with helical gearbox and AC motor which helps to rotate the screw. Raw material in flakes form starts to move forward along the rotating screw and enters the heating spot of barrel. Where it starts to melt. Molten plastic reaches the end of the barrel where hydraulic screen changer is fitted which filters the molten plastic and converts it into plastic strands. Plastic strands moves forward and drops inside the stainless steel water tank and its temperature starts to cool down. Plastic strands then enters the pelletizer machine which turn it into pellets.

Model Range :

various models available which are classified according their production rate. 65 mm to 125 mm screw size extruder models available.

Production range:

Production Range of 50 kg/hr to 300 kg/hr.
