Friction Screw Washer Machine

In the realm of plastic recycling, ensuring the cleanliness and purity of the material is paramount. One machine that stands out in achieving this is the cost-effective Friction Screw Washer Machine, a specially designed apparatus for cleaning and transporting plastic flakes, films, and regrind materials from one machinery to another. This machine is akin to the more robust high-speed friction washer system, with friction being the core method employed for cleaning and scrubbing off dirt and other potential contaminants.

Working Principle

The Friction Screw Washer Machine houses a rotor within, adorned with many slanted paddles. As the rotor spins at a speed ranging between 500-600 RPM, it causes the plastic stream inside to scrub against each other vigorously. During this process, water is sprayed through the filter nets, leading to the complete separation and removal of soil, sand, and other contaminations from the plastic materials.
