FMW Plastic Bale Processing – Bale Breaker


Optimize Your Plastic Recycling Operation’s Potential

The plastic recycling industry faces a significant challenge: inefficient bale processing and material preparation. This inefficiency leads to manual labor, inconsistent material flow, blockages, and reduced productivity. In a rapidly growing market the need for efficient recycling solutions is more critical than ever. To address this issue, FMW introduces the Plastic Bale Breaker, an essential solution that streamlines your recycling operation.

Plastic Bale Breaker: The Key to Efficient Material Processing

The Plastic Bale Breaker is designed to efficiently process compacted bales of raw materials, breaking them down into a more manageable form for further production. It features efficient material loosening, an anti-stall system, variable speed control, a robust design, flexibility, and easy maintenance and cleaning. These features contribute to a smoother, more efficient recycling process, reducing manual labor and increasing overall productivity.

Key Features of FMWs Equal Flow Technology

  • Efficient Material Loosening: The rotating screw shafts effectively loosen plastic bales, ensuring a continuous flow of material for processing.
  • Anti-Stall System: Each screw shaft is equipped with an anti-stall system, preventing blockages by automatically reversing rotation if torque exceeds the set limit.
  • Variable Speed Control: Adapt your processing speed to suit different bale sizes and materials.
  • Robust Design: Heavy-duty drive side double bearings and independent shaft-mounted geared motors provide durability and reliability.
  • Flexibility: The system can handle various bale sizes and materials, allowing for versatility in material handling.
  • Easy Maintenance and Cleaning: Simplify your maintenance and cleaning processes, saving time and resources.

How it works:

The Plastic Bale Breaker utilizes four rotating screw shafts for efficient bale loosening. Its cantilevered design with screw-type shafts and horizontal bottom discharge simplifies material transfer and minimizes wire entanglements. Independent frequency converter-driven motors for each shaft ensure precise control, while the anti-stall system automatically reverses overloaded shafts briefly, preventing blockages.
