How to granulate EPS foam and EPE foam into pellets?

Together, the following steps complete the granulation process of EPS foam and EPE foam, converting waste foam into recycled pellets for effective recycling and reuse of resources. See detailed steps:

Foam preparation

Collect waste EPS foam and EPE foam to ensure that they do not carry too many additional impurities. Clean raw materials help to improve the granulation quality.

EPE EPS foam crushing

The raw material is fed into a crusher for initial crushing to break the waste foam into small pieces. This helps in the subsequent extrusion and pelletizing process.

Pelleting

The crushed foam material is moulded into granules through the foam granulator, so as to be more flexibly applied to the production of new foam products.

Cooling and cutting

Cool granulated foam particles and then cut them into required sizes to meet different production requirements.

Machine used in EPS foam granulating line

In the EPE EPS foam granulating line, the below machines are necessary to make foam pellets. Let’s together learn about it.

Foam crusher

It is used for preliminary crushing of waste EPS foam, crushing large pieces of foam into small particles to prepare for the subsequent steps.

Foam granulator

This is the key equipment of the whole EPS foam granulating line, used to extrude and form foam pellets. Through the extruder, the raw foam material is heated, melted and extruded through the die to form pellets of the required size and shape.

Cooling tank

The freshly extruded foam pellets have a certain temperature and need to be cooled to prevent sticking and deformation.

Pellet cutting machine

It’s used for the final cutting of the cooled foam pellets to meet product specifications and requirements. This ensures the consistency and quality of the granules.

Benefits of recycling EPE EPS foam

Why use EPS foam granulating line? Refer to the below advantages of foam recycling:

  • Resource reuse: Recycling EPE EPS foams means efficient reuse of these materials, reducing the need for new raw materials. Through recycling, waste foam can be converted into useful recycled materials.
  • Environmental reduction: Foam products are often made from petroleum-based materials, and recycling these materials helps to reduce dependence on finite fossil fuels, lowering the carbon footprint and mitigating climate change.
  • Waste minimization: Foam products take up a lot of volume when they are discarded, but by recycling them, the amount of waste going to landfills can be effectively reduced, easing pressure on landfill sites.
  • Energy savings: The manufacture of new foam products by EPS foam granulating line requires a large amount of energy, but recycling reduces energy consumption and lowers the environmental impact of the production process.
