The Dry Cleaner is used in plastics recycling to remove contamination in a dry state. Dry, ground or shredded material that has to be coarsely pre-cleaned from sand, stones, glass, paper, etc is introduced into the dry cleaner.
A robust rotor fitted with wear-resistant elements is driven by a strong motor, rotating against a basket screen. Thereby shattering brittle material (glass, stones) or reducing into fibres (paper).During the process the separated contaminating items are pressed through the basket screen and are collected by an automatic screen cleaning system at the base of the dryer. From here, the contaminating materials are conveyed away for waste disposal. Based on practical examples, it can be shown that 90 – 95 % of the contamination materials can be separated out by a combination of the Dry Cleaner and the ZZ classifier (see below), without coming into contact with water or cleaning solutions.
