Polyvinyl chloride, abbreviated as PVC, stands as one of the most extensively utilized polymers globally, particularly prevalent in the plastic industry where PVC pipes are commonplace. Addressing the disposal of used PVC pipes involves three primary methods: recycling, incineration, and burial. The recycling of PVC pipes is a prevalent practice in the industry, as thermoplastic PVC pipes can be easily reground, pulverized, and reintegrated into the extrusion process to manufacture new pipes. This mechanical recycling process transforms used PVC into a powdered base for creating fresh products, thereby contributing to resource efficiency, raw material conservation, and a reduction in emissions and landfill usage.
Within the mechanical recycling process, several size reduction machines, such as PVC pipes shredding machine, play a crucial role. Sorting, shredding, and separating components within waste streams are fundamental processes in conventional mechanical recycling. The outcome is pulverized or granulated recycled PVC, suitable for manufacturing new products. The pivotal machines in size reduction include pipe shredders and granulators, with both vertical and horizontal PVC pipe shredders available to cater to varying size reduction capacity requirements.
PROSINO, a reputable brand, provides three types of PVC pipes shredding machines: vertical single shaft pipe shredder, horizontal pipe shredder, and a shredding & granulating integrated unit. Each of these machines effectively shreds PVC pipes of different sizes. Generally, vertical single shaft pipe shredders and integrated units are preferred for small to medium-sized PVC pipes, while the horizontal pipe shredder is ideal for larger pipes. For instance, if dealing with a PVC pipe of a 1000 mm diameter, the PPS-1500 from the horizontal pipe shredder range is the recommended choice for safe and efficient shredding.
