Drip Irrigation Tape Recycling Machine

Drip irrigation tape recycling machines can treat with agriculture drip tape efficiency. The whole process includes crushing, water rinsing, friction washing, dring by washing system; plasticization, pelletizing and drying by the pelletizing system. PLC intelligent system realized high automatic, the whole line just needs 3-4 man to operate. With over 20 years of experience in recycling, WANROOETECH not only mastered the key technology but also improved machine designs to address specific product features. WANROOETECH offers drip irrigation tape recycling machines are high output and low energy consumption.


What is drip irrigation tape?
Drip irrigation is an irrigation system that allows water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either onto the soil surface or buried below the soil surface. Such system works through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. Drip irrigation can effectively saves water and fertilizer than surface irrigation or sprinkler irrigation because it minimizes evaporation. Why do we recycle drip irrigation tape when it is at the end of service life? How to reduce the size of them through the drip irrigation tape recycling machine?


Why recycle drip irrigation tape?
For decades, drip irrigation has helped increase efficiency and reduce growers’ operating costs through decreased labor, energy and water use. But at the end of its lifecycle, the drip irrigation tapes need to be treated properly. The landfill is not a long-term solution, because the degradation cycle of current plastics is at least 200 years in general. Instead of letting the waste drip irrigation tape be thrown into landfills, it makes good sense of recycling, and the valuable landfill space can be saved for more productive uses. Also, drip irrigation tape recycling machine is great for both the economy and the environment.


How to recycling drip irrigation tape?
Waste drip irrigation tape usually is a long size. So in the recycling process for such products, size reduction is the first step which usually is done by a shredder. Drip irrigation tape is turned into small scraps after shredding, and those scraps are then put into re-production according to various manufacturing requirements. Usually, the waste will be processed by sorting, shredding, crushing, mixing with new resin raw material or adding additives, and melting, and then re-made into new plastic raw material. Recycling the waste irrigation tubing/hose/tape can produce a recycled resin that can be re-used in agricultural, mining and landscape drip line applications. The recycled resin also gets used in industrial products such as plastic pallets.

Drip Irrigation Tape Pelletizing Process:

Feeding: Belt conveyor for plastic scrap feeding automatically, Feeding speed adjustable by inverter controller according to the feeding amount.

Compacting: The plastic material got cut, mixing and preheated in a compactor uniformly, to ensure the material was heated and dried effectively

Extrusion: High-efficiency barrel and screw used for extruder with the excellent plasticizing result and high output capacity. Adopt high wear-resistant alloy material to ensure 1.5 times the service life of a normal one.

Degassing: Force double vacuum degassing system to get rid of the low molecular, moisture and printing ink effectively, make sure high-quality output pellets.

Filtration: Plate type, piston type, backflush type and automatic self-cleaning type filter, you have different choices according to impurity contents in material and your habit.

Pelletizing: New European design water ring pelletizer, Cutting speed of the pelletizer is controlled automatically by PLC according to the pressure of the die head, which could achieve the uniform size for output pellets.

Drying: Vibration dryer combined with horizontal type centrifugal dryer to get well dried final granules.
