Polystyrene Foam Shredder Machine

Polystyrene is a hard and solid plastic and it has versatile applications. Also it can have  much wider applications after combining with various colorants, additives or other plastics. For example, polystyrene appliances, polystyrene automotive, polystyrene electronics, polystyrene foodservice, polystyrene insulation, polystyrene medical, polystyrene packaging, toys, roadway, gardening pots and equipment etc. Expanded polystyrene(EPS) or extruded polystyrene(XPS) is also made from polystyrene. Both of them are popular foam material which is for insulating and cushioning. When these polystyrene foam becomes scraps or out of service, landfill is not the good solution because polystyrene foam is hard to degrade or decompose in a landfill. So recycling polystyrene foam is much healthier for the earth as it turns discarded products into good use. Polystyrene foam shredder is the important size reduction during the whole polystyrene foam recycling process.

Polystyrene foam recycling

The process of polystyrene is not so cost effective. But there are many benefits from the recycling. So it is quite necessary to start such recycling. Below are main recycling steps for your easy reference:

First, collect polystyrene foam to the recycling center. Normally it is not within the recycling project of local community. But polystyrene foam are recyclable material. Due to its bulky volume, it is not easy to manage them. So maybe a polystyrene foam baler is a good solution during the transportation or movement.

Second, find an ideal polystyrene foam shredder to smash the polystyrene foam into small pieces. Of course, you can choose manual feeding or belt conveyor for different material input.

Third, when the small pieces after shredding come into compactor or densifier, they will be compressed or melted for easy management of polystyrene foam. Then these processed polystyrene foam can be produced into new products such as picture frames .
