Even the water-washed plastic film via procedures of the spin-dryer still contains over 10% moisture whose material would reduce the productivity of the extruder and quality of pellets. The latest development for recycling film: plastic film squeeze dryers which could make moisture to the minimum and the squeezed material only contains 3% moisture below.
Plastic squeeze dryers are a vital part of plastic film washing lines.
Washed films retain up to 30% wetness normally. High humidity will be affecting the efficiency and production of the following pelletizing process. Having a plastic squeeze dryer is a must to dehydrate the washed film, reduce the volume of recycled materials, and further refine the essence of final plastic pellets.
