Functional description of the film washer:

The final film washer is designed for the mechanical detachment of fibrous material (paper) from flat plastics, with simultaneous shredding of the paper.

Several physical processes are used in the final film washer: Friction, impact effect and centrifugal force.

The film parts with the residual fibres fall into the chute of the material input. The fed material is caught and strongly accelerated by the fast rotating rotor. During this process, strong impact effects occur, whereby any pieces of paper that may still be present are already strongly shredded, but the film parts remain largely unharmed.

remain largely unharmed.

The fed material is now driven through the machine in a spiral form by the slightly inclined rotor blades, constantly turning and rotating.

Due to the high relative speed between the stationary screen basket (stator), which is provided with a perforation, and the rapidly turning rotor, a strong friction is created between the rotor blade ends and the screen basket.

This friction separates the different layers of a composite system (e.g. beverage carton) from each other, and the soaked paper is pulverised or frayed. The defibration is further promoted by additional impact effects during the machine run. Due to the centrifugal forces, the aqueous fibre suspension (fibres and water) is rubbed off the still large film pieces and thrown through the screen basket to the machine housing.

To prevent the build-up of a fibre cake on the outside of the screen basket and on the housing wall, a slowly rotating cleaning device permanently wipes off any build-up of material cake from the outside of the screen basket and the inside wall of the housing and sends it into the flushing mud at the bottom of the housing.

The material, which is largely not comminuted, is removed from the screen basket by a slowly rotating cleaning device.

The largely unshredded film particles leave the inside of the screen basket at the end of the machine and are discharged via the outlet opening. The fast rotating rotor creates a fan effect, which allows the blast-dried films to be conveyed over a certain distance in a tube in the air flow, so that they can be fed into a baler, for example.


Condition of the film washer:

The fibre washer has only been in operation for approx. 3,500 hours as part of a pilot project, after which it was dismantled and put into storage. The machine is in very good condition, ready for loading.
