Plastic Pipe Shredding

Plastic pipes are widely applied in many fields like agriculture irrigation system, gas piping, water mains, drainage outlet, sewer, underground tap water supplies, etc. Such kind of plastic piping usually is made of below four types of plastic materials: PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), PE (Polyethylene), PP (Polypropylene) and Pex (Cross-linked Polyethylene). Among these materials, PE and PVC are the most commonly used for plastic pipe.

Being the best material choice for piping in various industries, it is not only due to plastic pipe’s good performance, but also because of its long and sustainable life (estimated to be more than 100 years according to WSAA). Even when the long service life is reached, it can be recycled and made into new pipes, or made into some other plastic products such as rubbish bin, plastic film, etc.

Although plastic pipe has long life cycle, there are many scrap pipes generated in life. For example, scrap pipes may be left over during pipe manufacturing process, road or building installation project, house decoration project, or old and damaged pipes need to be replaced.

If you have piles of scrap plastic pipes need to be recycled, loading, transporting and unloading would be very costly and troublesome without proper shredding or granulating in advance.
