The Herbold Friction Washer is used to wash highly contaminated film flakes. They are used for discharging treated material mixed with water from a wet grinder. This also can be used in special cases where the friction washer can be installed in front of or after washing tank and hydrocyclone units.
This unit can be used as a dryer or as an intensive washer. The Mechanical dryers operate as a centrifuge for film, regrind and mixed plastics. The wet fractions and the fines are mechanically dried in this centrifuged dryer and at the same time the contaminations are removed by the high impact energy and then will be evacuated.
Wet granulators are granulators from the Herbold SMS or SML series that have been modified for the use of the simultaneous washing and size reduction of soiled feed material such as film scrap, old battery cases, bottle crates, etc.
