Rotajet Systems Limited have recently designed, manufactured and installed a plastic recycling line to a very large UK based cosmetic’s manufacturer.
The system is used for the washing, granulation, and drying of used PP pots containing small residues of face creams, soaps, body butters etc.
At the heart of the system is a “Rotajet wet granulator”. The action of this machine reduces the PP pots to 10-12mm granulate, and washes the plastic free of the contamination at the same time. The clean granulate is then fed into a “Rotajet high speed dryer”, which removes any residual cleaning solution and the clean dry granulate is then discharge into bulk bags, prior to remanufacturing into new pots.
