How to make quality egg trays?


Pulping is the first step in egg tray manufacturing and involves mixing waste paper or pulp with water to form a pulp stock. At this stage, the waste paper is crushed and mixed, and the pulp stock from the pulp cell is then fed into the subsequent forming stage.


In the forming stage, the pulp stock is drawn into the egg tray machine and then injected into moulds to be formed into the desired egg tray shape and size. Egg tray machines usually have multiple moulds to produce different types and sizes of egg trays.


The moulded egg trays need to be dried to remove excess water and to ensure that the trays reach the required moisture content. Drying can be done using different methods such as solar drying, natural ventilation drying or hot air drying, depending on the scale of production and available resources.


Finally, the dried egg trays are sent to the packaging area, where they are usually bundled or stacked into trays or bags. Packaging can be customised to include printing and branding.

Egg tray machine in egg tray production line

Shuliy paper pulp molding machine is one of the core equipment in paper tray production line, which plays a key role in making egg trays. Specifically, the role of egg tray machine includes the following aspects:

Pulp Forming

Moisture Removal

Egg tray forming

Discharge and Conveyance

The performance and stability of the egg tray machine is crucial for the operation of the entire egg tray processing line, and its precise operation ensures the quality and productivity of the egg trays. Egg tray machines therefore play a vital role in the production of sustainable packaging and environmentally friendly packaging, helping to reduce waste and the use of plastic packaging.

Types of egg tray drying

Egg tray drying is an important step in the egg tray manufacturing process and is used to remove moisture from the pulp to bring the egg tray to the desired moisture level. Below are three common ways to dry egg trays and their benefits:

The 1st way: natural drying

  • Low cost: Natural drying requires no additional energy and therefore has low operating costs.
  • Environmentally friendly: Produce no emissions and is environmentally friendly.
  • Simple and feasible: Suitable for areas with limited resources, no expensive equipment required.
  • Wide applicability: Effective in warm, dry climates.

The 2nd method: brick lin drying

  • Uniform drying: Brick kilns provide uniform temperature and humidity, which helps to maintain the quality of the egg tray.
  • Space saving: This method is usually vertical in construction, saving floor space.
  • Highly controllable: The temperature and humidity of the brick kiln can be adjusted to meet the requirements of different products.
  • Suitable for mass production: Suitable for high-volume egg tray manufacturing.

The 3rd method: metal dryer machine

  • Efficient and fast: Metal drying is usually fast and heats up quickly, contributing to increased productivity.
  • Precise control: Precise temperature and humidity control for a wide range of products.
  • Adaptable to a wide range of products: it can be used to dry other paper products in addition to egg trays.

Each drying method has its own unique advantages and the choice of the most suitable method usually depends on the scale of production, available resources and product requirements.

Natural drying is suitable for small-scale and limited resources, brick kiln drying is suitable for large-scale production where uniform drying is required, and metal drying is suitable where efficient and fast drying is required. You can choose the most suitable drying method for your needs.
