Plastic pipe recycling can be one of the hardest applications in the industry. Engineered materials such as HDPE 80 and HDPE 100 being used to make large pipe diameter with wall thicknesses of 3-4 or more present a great difficulty to recycle. Enormous power requirements are the norm for these applications. PVC pipe can be impact modified and filled with abrasives. Hosokawa Polymer Systems has many options to meet these tough demands, some conventional and reliable, some revolutionary.
Our granulators, shredders and pulverizers are all rugged, heavy duty recycling machines to make your job easier. Imagine being able to recycle a HDPE 100 pipe 48 diameter, DR17, 20 long without chain saws. Now imagine doing this using a 30 HP machine, at 4000 pounds per hour. Impossible? Not anymore. Our PRS pipe recycling system turns pipe recycling on its head. This is just one of the many advancements which Hosokawa Polymer Systems brings you.
In the last 50 years, Hosokawa Polymer Systems has continually evolved and improved our systems and equipment to meet the demands of the recycling market. Hosokawa Polymer Systems supplies a wide range of recycling equipment from small Press Side granulators to large, multiple stage recycling plants for film, cable and post-consumer materials.
