We supply machines and systems for washing, separation and drying for used, contaminated and mixed plastics. The lines start off with waste material – often pressed in bales – and end up with clean, pure and dry regrind or flakes, ready for densifying, re-extrusion or injection moulding.
Our Herbold washing lines have been designed in a particular sequence in order to achieve, after every process stage, an improved quality of the flakes, to save energy and to reduce the amount of fresh water required for the end product. In modular design from simple wet shredding to the turnkey industrial washing line.
