Drip Irrigation Pipe Shredder Machine

What is drip irrigation pipe or tube? Drip irrigation is an irrigation system that allows water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either onto the soil surface or buried below the soil surface. Such system works through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. Drip irrigation can effectively saves water and fertilizer than surface irrigation or sprinkler irrigation, because it minimize evaporation. Why we recycle drip irrigation pipe or tube when it is at the end of service life? How to reduce the size of them through the drip irrigation pipe shredder or drip irrigation tube shredder?


Why recycle drip irrigation pipe(tube)?

For decades, drip irrigation has helped increase efficiency and reduce growers’ operating costs through decreased labor, energy and water use. But at the end of its lifecycle, the drip irrigation pipes or tubes need to be treated properly. Landfill is not a long term solution, because the degradation cycle of current plastics is at least 200 years in general. Instead of letting the waste drip irrigation pipe(tube) thrown into landfill, it makes good sense of recycling, and the valuable landfill space can be saved for more productive uses. Also drip irrigation pipe or tube recycling is great to both economy and environment.


Shredding of drip irrigation pipe(tube)

Waste drip irrigation pipes (tubes) usually are in long size. So in the recycling process for such products, size reduction is the first step which usually is done by a shredder. Drip irrigation pipes (tubes) are turned into small scraps after shredding, and those scraps are then put into re-production according to various manufacturing requirements. Usually the waste will be processed by sorting, shredding, crushing, mixing with new resin raw material or adding additives, and melting, and then re-made into new plastic raw material. Recycling the waste irrigation tubing/hose/tape can produce a recycled resin that can be re-used in agricultural, mining and landscape drip line applications. The recycled resin also gets used in industrial products such as plastic pallets.
