Plastic Recycling Feed Hoppers
Generally in the plastic recycling industry the feed hoppers are fitted with screw auger conveyors for the discharge. For normal applications we fit single screw discharge augers, the diameter of the screw augers depends on the throughput requirement. In large plastic recycling facilities we fit multiply screw augers. The multi screw system avoids bridging and blockages, the torque of the screws are monitored via the PLC, if a blockage occurs the screws can be run at different speeds and directions to free the blockage.
