There are a lot of EPS foam produced in the building industry, mainly in two aspects. On the one hand, when EPS foam insulation board is produced, EPS is cut, and the leftovers and EPS dust are one of the sources of waste foam in the construction industry. It is the discarded EPS insulation board when old buildings are demolished, which is also one of the main sources of waste.
The EPS collecting facility will recycle EPS foam insulation using a physical recycling process based on compacting technology. The technology converts EPS foam demolition waste generated from construction and building insulation materials into new materials.EPS is a lightweight foam composed of 98% air and 2% PS for excellent protection and thermal insulation. Therefore, it is widely used in the manufacture of EPS insulation boards. Is there a simpler and more popular way to recycle EPS foam ? Using machinery for EPS foam recycling is a very good option. Whether it is waste EPS produced in the production process or used EPS insulation boards (not stained with excessive cement) produced in the demolition process, foam compactor can be used for recycling. We all know that the construction waste of EPS insulation board contains flame retardant, foam compactor adopts cold pressing technology, which is more suitable for processing foam insulation board than hot melt machine. At the same time, the foam compactor is basically a fully automatic machine, which is very simple to operate and saves labor: no heating is required during the recycling process, which is very energy-saving.
The compression ratio of foam compactor is 50:1. This foam recycling equipment has strong crushing and compressing functions. A sharp knife will crush the foam into uniform pieces, which will then be squeezed by a screw into dense foam blocks. , which is an essential part of the recycling process, because uncompressed EPS foam cannot be efficiently used in EPS recycling systems, and the bulky, air-filled EPS foam boards are difficult to stack and transport. So we’re going to compress it into blocks.
Reducing the volume of EPS foam is not the ultimate goal. Thorough recycling of foam is our goal. Our EPS recycling system is dedicated to turning waste into a treasure. We recycle EPS foam blocs to make new plastic pellets, and then make plastic frame bars, which are sold worldwide.
