Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) lumps are typically made using an EPS melting machine. The following steps outline the general process of making EPS lumps by melting machine:
Collection and Sorting: Collect the EPS waste material from various sources and sort them based on their type, color, and purity.
Preprocessing: The collected EPS waste material is first compressed and shredded to reduce the size and volume, making it easier to handle and feed into the melting machine.
Melting: The shredded EPS material is then fed into the melting machine where it is heated to a temperature of about 150-180°C, causing the EPS beads to melt and form a homogeneous molten mass.
Filtering: The molten EPS mass is then passed through a fine mesh filter to remove any impurities or contaminants that may have been present in the original material.
Cooling and Solidification: The filtered molten EPS is then cooled and solidified by passing it through a cooling system that uses water or air to reduce the temperature and solidify the material.
Packaging: Once the EPS has solidified, it is then packaged into bags or containers for transportation and storage.
It is important to note that the specific process for making EPS lumps using a EPS lump machine may vary based on the type of machine and the manufacturer’s instructions. It is also important to follow safety precautions when handling and operating the melting machine, as it involves high temperatures and potentially hazardous materials.
