Agglomerator also called Densifiers,physically transform a light, fluffy material in something heavy enough to feed the hopper of the extruder or any other machine. It is a cylinder where two blades are spinning at the bottom creating friction and thus increasing temperature till material reach the softening point (not the melting point); operator then adds some water to cool the batch down and, after water evaporates, from discharge door material comes out in chips, like very little pop-corn.
Densifier don't care at all about the fact material is dry, wet or dripping water because before going to softening point it has to dry it first and then temperature will raise over 100° C and agglomerate it.
Densifier also doesn't care if you put into a mixture of material, the same material with different MFI or melting point, it will do its job.
Chips can be therefore mixed into a silo, so pellets can be a steady quality as far as lab characteristics.
Densifier accepts scraps in any form, meaning film, ropes, nets, filaments, non woven and, you name it; result will be the same for everything, size of scraps don't matter much as long operator is safe handling it.
Maintenance is minimal as replacing blades takes 10 minutes.
When recycling plastics wastes from post-consumer collect and, especially, in the case of LLDPE-LDPE-HDPE thin film foils and packaging material having a low specific weight and bulky density, it is advisable and necessary to increase the density and weight in order to process further the material in the extrusion or pulverizing phases.
There are cases when the material has a bulk density of 18-20 kg/cubic m and to make them suitable for further process they should be turned to a minimum 350-400 kg/cubic m.
During the density increasing phase, a fairly good amount of humidity must be removed specially when coming from the washing line. To this purpose, agglomerator are used by recyclers.
This type of machine has reduced capacity when the thickness of the film, foils lowers (bigger volumes with low density) and the humidity on surface of the material at in-feed increases.
Purpose Of Melting:
- Increase the bulk density of plastic waste from 20 kg/cbm up to a minimum of 400 kg/cbm.
- Reduce humidity on the plastic waste.
- Due to the big volumes of wastes at in-feed, have a big capacity of the in-feed hopper to enable the acceptance of huge quantities of material shred or ground even by a twin-shaft shredder without sizing screen (i.e. not necessarily from a sharp cutting grinder open rotor type provided of screen).
- Low processing costs (i.e. low energy consumption, maintenance and staff).
