PLASTIC SINK & FLOAT, SEPERATION TANK
Pools used in washing lines are used for the plastics (PET, HDPE, LDPE, PP, FILM) after size reduction process; It is one of the most important separation units used to separate foreign pollutants such as dust, soil, sludge, stone, metal and paper.
The mixed plastic is fed into the tank where the high density materials sink and the low density materials will float. As the material enters the separation pool, our specially designed rotary drums carry the material forward and with water. Ideally, we want the material to immerse in water longer. This not only allows the material to be further cleaned, but also allows all sinking material to have sufficient time to move to the bottom of the tank.
Due to the density differences of plastics, different sizes of flotation & immersion, separation pools are manufactured for different types of plastics.
Floatation & immersion pools are customized for the material to be treated and are equipped with a continuous discharge system for both floating and sinking material. The pools, which are built on strong construction, are designed to serve for many years, are manufactured with maximum cleaning and minimum wastage and work completely automatically in the line.
