EPS foam pelletizing machine is specialized in processing waste foam such as EPS into foam pellets. These recycled foam granules can be reused for the production of new foam products, realizing the resourceful recycling of foam waste. Of course, we also have granulator for EPE foam, the same function as the EPS foam recycling machine. Thus, we have two kinds of foam pelletizers. And this kind of machine is essential in the foam recycling line. So, if you’re interested, welcome to contact us for more machine details!
Types of foam granulators
As a professional recycling machine manufacturer and supplier, we have two foam pelletizing machines for sale. Each foam pelletizing machine targets specialized foams. Learn more about it below.
EPS pelletizing machine
This equipment is mainly for EPS foam, including but not limited to Styrofoam boxes, foam board protection mats, civil engineering roadbed filler, etc. This type of foam waste is recycled and then processed twice to form consistent recycled pellets, which create profit value for the recycling plant again.
Structural components of EPS foam pelletizer
To be honest, this EPS foam pelletizing machine has been designed with your usage in mind, and therefore the composition is very simple. Its structure includes main machine, die head, cooling tank, grinder and auxiliary machine. When you operate the machine, it’s easy to understand and use, which is user-friendly.

EPE Styrofoam pelletizing machine
Compared with EPS foam granulator, the main foam material for this machine is EPE pearl cotton. As you can see from the appearance, this machine is still different from the EPS pelletizing machine. If you want to do pearl cotton treatment, this machine is your good choice.
What consists of EPE foam making machine?
Its structure is very simple and straightforward, with the control cabinet, inlet, fan, cover, die head and cooling water tank. From its construction, you can get that this machine is easy to operate.

Applications of EPS foam pelletizing machine for sale
PS polystyrene foam sheet plastic extruder is widely used for recycling and processing various foam materials, including waste foam, foam hot melt blocks, EPO rigid foam, waste pearl cotton, foam cold press blocks, and foam boards. The machine gives a new life cycle to these waste foam materials by crushing and recreating them into high-quality pellets through efficient processing technology.
Machine features of EPS granulator
- Different foam with different melting points and different screw ratios: Adjustment to different foam characteristics, including melting point and screw ratio, ensures optimal production results.
- Easy input and high output: Designed to focus on ease of operation, it can easily put in EPS raw materials, while ensuring high output production and improving production efficiency.
- Stable machine performance and easy operation: Adopting advanced control system to ensure stable machine operation. The user-friendly interface and simplified operation process make the operation more convenient.
- Crushing and pelletizing: The EPS foam pelletizing machine first crushes and then granulates to achieve efficient recycling of waste EPS.
- Multi-purpose use of recycled foam pellets: Produced granules can be widely used to make plastic bags, buckets, building accessories, etc., giving new life to the waste EPS material.
How can a plastic foam material be extruded?
Preparation of raw materials
Firstly, plastic foam is fed into the production line as raw material. This is usually waste foam material.
Heating and melting
The raw material passed through a heating system, usually a screw extruder. Here, the raw material is heated to a temperature high enough to melt.
Melted plastic foam is pushed out by the pressure in the screw extruder. This is achieved by pushing the melted plastic through the movement of the screw and barrel.
The extruded melt is passed through a mould or die to be formed to the desired shape and size. This can be in the form of tubes, films, rods etc.
Cooling and curing
Moulded materials are passed through a cooling system, e.g. water cooling, to allow it to cure and maintain the desired shape.
Cutting and collection
Finally, the plastic foam material that has been moulded may need to be cut or slit to obtain the desired length or shape. Afterwards, these products are collected for packaging or further processing.
Tips to choose a suitable EPS foam recycling machine
- Processing capacity: Select the processing capacity of the machine according to the actual demand to ensure that it can meet the processing demand in the working scenario to improve efficiency.
- Process flow: Different EPS foam recycling machines may use different process flows, including crushing, melting, extruding and other steps. Choose a suitable process according to the nature and requirements of the waste foam.
- Machine quality: Choose a reputable manufacturer with excellent quality to ensure the stability and durability of the selected EPS foam pelletizing machine to reduce maintenance costs and extend service life.
- Energy consumption and environmental protection: Consider the energy consumption and environmental performance of the machine, and choose an EPS foam pelletizing machine that meets energy efficiency standards and is environmentally friendly.
- Maintenance and after-sales service: Choose a manufacturer that provides comprehensive after-sales service to ensure timely support and maintenance during use.
- Cost-effectiveness: Considering the investment cost and operation cost, choose the EPE EPS foam pelletizing machine that best meets the actual demand and has high cost-effectiveness.
