PET Bottle Washing Line – 500 kg/h

The picture depicts a large-scale industrial facility dedicated to plastic recycling. It features an extensive array of interconnected machines and equipment, forming a complete processing line to handle and treat plastic waste. Key Observations: Multiple Stages: The facility is organized into distinct stages, each with specific equipment, suggesting a multi-step recycling process. Conveyor Systems: A network of conveyor belts, both inclined and horizontal, transports plastic materials between different processing stages. Variety of Machines: The line includes a diverse range of machines, indicating various treatment processes such as shredding, washing, sorting, drying, and possibly pelletizing. Color-Coding: The green color of many machines and components might represent a specific type of plastic being processed or simply a consistent design choice. Large-Scale Operation: The size and complexity of the facility suggest it's designed for high-volume plastic recycling, possibly processing post-consumer or industrial plastic waste. Possible Processing Stages (Based on Visible Equipment): Shredding/Size Reduction: The initial stage likely involves shredding or granulating the plastic waste into smaller, more manageable pieces. Washing & Separation: Equipment like float-sink tanks or washing lines might be used to remove contaminants such as dirt, labels, or other materials. Sorting: Optical sorters or other technologies could be employed to separate different types of plastics based on their properties. Drying: After washing, the plastic flakes or pellets may be dried to remove moisture. Pelletizing/Extrusion (Not Clearly Visible): The final stage might involve melting and extruding the plastic into pellets, which can then be used to manufacture new products. Potential Applications & Benefits: Circular Economy: The facility contributes to a circular economy by converting plastic waste into reusable material, reducing reliance on virgin plastics and minimizing environmental impact. Resource Recovery: It recovers valuable resources from discarded plastics, preventing them from ending up in landfills or polluting the environment. Sustainable Manufacturing: The recycled plastic pellets can be used to manufacture new products, promoting sustainable practices in various industries. Overall, the image presents a sophisticated and comprehensive plastic recycling facility that plays a crucial role in waste management and sustainable resource utilization.


In the fast-paced world of PET recycling, one machine stands out for its efficiency and quality: the PET Bottle Washing Line with a capacity of 500 kg/h. This state-of-the-art line is designed to transform waste PET bottles into clean, reusable flakes. It offers a comprehensive, turnkey solution for recycling PET bottles, whether they are soda bottles, mineral water bottles, or any other type of PET bottle. With its high-quality output and minimal waste, this washing line is setting new standards in the recycling industry.

Working Principle

The PET Bottle Washing Line operates through a series of carefully designed stages. It starts with a de-baling unit that separates compacted PET bottles. These bottles are then moved to a sieving unit where they are sorted. The next stage involves label separation and pre-washing to remove any contaminants. The heart of the system is the floatation tank, where PET material is separated from other contaminants like PVC. This is followed by a series of hot and cold washing steps, facilitated by a friction washer and a screw conveyor. The final stage involves dewatering and drying, resulting in PET flakes that have less than 1% humidity.

Technical Specifications

  • Capacity: The line has a standard capacity of 500 kg/h, which can be expanded with equipment upgrades.
  • Power Requirements: The power requirements are variable and depend on the specific configuration of the line.
  • Water Consumption: The system is designed to consume less than 1 litre of water per ton of PET flake produced.
  • PVC Level: The line ensures that the PVC level in the final product is less than 150 PPM.
  • Impurity Content: The impurity content in the final product is less than 100 PPM.
