Why shredding filament scrap?

During the textile manufacturing process, there are scrap filament generated. Recycling filament scrap not only saves landfill space, reduces global warming, but also protects natural resources. Moreover recycling filament scrap generates more working opportunities for the general republic. Shredding always comes first when it refers to recycle old materials.

Then filament scrap shredder and grinder make great sense in whole recycling process.

How to choose a proper filament scrap shredder?

The choice of the right filament scrap shredder for your needs pretty much depends on your required shredding throughput and final particle size after shredding for the filament scrap.

Shredding throughput mainly depends on the size of the machine including hopper size, shredding chamber size, power size etc. The bigger the chamber is, the more material can be handled each time and therefore more efficient; the bigger the power is, the higher capacity and speed the machine can generate. Another factor to consider is the required size after shredding. If there is no specific size requirement, you can consider double shaft filament scrap shredder as this series of machine do not have screen for controlling shredded size. But if there is specific requirement for shredded size, then you can choose from single shaft filament scrap shredder or granulator which have screen mounted at the machines’ outlet. Screen mesh size is customizable, but the smaller the screen mesh, the smaller the capacity based on same machine.
