HDPE Shredder Machine

HDPE shredder machine is a size reduction machine for HDPE materials. HDPE is the abbreviation for High-Density Polyethylene. It is one of the most commonly materials in today’s manufacturing industry owing to below advantageous properties.

– HDPE has high strength-to-density ratio compared with other polymers. But it is light with a high tensile strength.

– HDPE is relatively hard and impact resistant. So it can withstand temperatures up to 120 ° C.

– HDPE is free from BPA, phthalates, heavy metals or allergen. So it is safe to human body.
– HDPE is not easy to absorb liquid. So this makes it a good barrier material for liquid containers.

– HDPE is resistant to many chemicals. For example like acids, aldehydes, bases, alcohols, esters, and oils.


Application of HDPE 

HDPE has a wide variety of applications. It is primarily available in making containers for milk, motor oil, shampoos, soap bottles, detergents, bleaches and other liquid containers. This application alone takes up nearly one-third of HDPE produced globally. Other applications include shopping bags, pipes, food storage containers, banners, plastic toys, trays, 3D printer filament, boats, tanks, plastic chairs and tables, plastic lumber etc. So HDPE’s global market is very large. Because its annual market capacity of about 30 million tons.


Recycling of HDPE 

HDPE is not biodegradable and takes very long time to break down. So it is very important that the scrap HDPE products are properly recycled and reused. The typical way of HDPE recycling involves following steps:


– HDPE wastes are collected and a baler machine compresses the waste into bales.

– The HDPE bales are sent to specialized recycling center.

– HDPE waste are sorted with any particles and debris removed.

– The homogenized HDPE gets cleaned, shredded and granulated into small pieces

– The HDPE granules are then melted and cooled into pellets which servers as raw material in manufacturing
