The recycling sector is the one dedicated to the recovery of material deriving from crushing processes and soil washing. The material has to be washed to remove the polluting part, decontaminating it.
As a result, special tanks are used to eliminate contaminants through attrition, then the wastewater is filtrated by a filter press.
Plastics are inexpensive, lightweight and durable materials, which can readily be molded into a variety of products that find use in a wide range of applications. As a consequence, the production of plastics has increased markedly over the last 60 years.
Recycling is one of the most important actions currently available to reduce these impacts and represents one of the most dynamic areas in the plastics industry today. Recycling provides opportunities to reduce oil usage, carbon dioxide emissions and the quantities of waste requiring disposal.
Our process uses coagulants, in conjunction with existing air floating processes in plastic washing waste water, to treat the wastewater quickly for reuse. To remove the solids a Filter Press is used to efficiently dewater the solids for ease of handling and return of clean water. Unlike funnel, vacuum, and belt filter presses, Filter Presses are designed to apply high pressure directly to the slurry in between the press plates, expelling nearly every bit of liquid. What remains is a solid, compact, sludge cake ready for the landfill, and water that’s fit for reuse or expulsion into the sewer after filtering. A batch filter press is ideal for industries like plastics recycling.
