EPS Recycling System is a processing system based on waste EPS materials that reprocesses EPS waste materials into reusable plastic pellets or sheets by multiple rounds of heating, compression, and processing. Below, I will introduce the composition of the EPS recycling system, equipment conditions, production equipment investment scale, technical schemes, and maintenance plans in multiple aspects.
I. Composition of EPS Recycling System
- Processing equipment: EPS recycling system’s processing equipment includes waste EPS material collection and storage equipment, EPS block crushing equipment, EPS pelletizer, EPS melt control system, water treatment equipment, and more.
- Automation control system: EPS recycling system requires an efficient and reliable automation control system, including PLC system, sensor equipment, etc.
- Other necessary equipment: such as conveyor belts, air source equipment, explosion-proof equipment, etc.
II. Equipment Conditions of EPS Recycling System
The cost of EPS recycling system is mainly related to the performance and service life of the processing equipment. The performance and service life directly affect the processing efficiency and recycling cost. The following are commonly used EPS recycling equipment:
- Waste EPS material storage equipment: The commonly used waste EPS material storage equipment includes a heating shed, indoor storage bucket, and outdoor storage tank, etc.
- EPS block crushing equipment: The commonly used EPS block crushing equipment includes vertical cutting machine, oblique cutting machine, hot press crusher, and pelletizer, etc.
- EPS pelletizer: EPS pelletizer mainly processes EPS blocks into pellets.
- EPS melt control system: The EPS melt control system mainly consists of heating furnace, heater, and screw extruder, etc.
- Water treatment equipment: The storage materials in the EPS recycling system need to be washed and dried. Water treatment equipment can help solve the wastewater treatment issue.
III. Investment Scale of Production Equipment for EPS Recycling System
The investment scale of production equipment for EPS recycling system is related to the output. The calculation process of production capacity and equipment investment for EPS recycling system is as follows:
- Firstly, in the production capacity calculation process, it is necessary to consider the system’s production capacity and distinguish different production lines to calculate the production rate.
- Secondly, in the equipment investment calculation process, it is necessary to consider critical production equipment, automation control systems, water treatment equipment, calculate their respective investment costs.
- Finally, based on the above calculation results, determine the investment scale of production equipment for the entire EPS recycling system.
IV. Technical Scheme of EPS Recycling System
In the technical scheme of EPS recycling system, it is necessary to consider waste EPS material treatment methods, EPS particle preparation methods, the preparation of new materials using recycled EPS pellets, and reusable resources, etc.
- Waste EPS material treatment methods: The waste EPS material needs to remain dry. Storage cabinets can be set up to centralize processing and transportation.
- EPS particle preparation methods: EPS particle preparation methods usually include melt extrusion and compression molding methods.
- Preparation of new materials using recycled EPS pellets: The EPS pellets processed can be used to make various new materials, such as pressure-resistant foam plastics.
- Reusable resources: The recycled EPS pellet particles can be widely used in construction, flooring, and sound absorption materials, and other fields.
V. Maintenance Plan of EPS Recycling System
The maintenance plan of EPS recycling system mainly includes equipment maintenance, overhaul, maintenance, etc. The key points are briefly introduced below:
- Check the safe operation status of equipment and promptly eliminate problems.
- Periodically maintain equipment knives to ensure the normal operation of cutting equipment.
- Monitor and manage equipment in extreme environments to ensure the safe operation of equipment throughout the operation period.
- Detect and repair control equipment to ensure the accuracy and stability of the equipment throughout the operation period.
Above is the introduction of the composition of EPS recycling system, equipment conditions, production equipment investment scale, technical schemes, and maintenance plans, including waste EPS material treatment methods, EPS particle preparation methods, new materials prepared using recycled EPS pellets, and reusable resources, etc. With the increasing awareness of global environmental protection and sustainable development, EPS recycling system will inevitably receive wider applications and developments in the future.
