Optimization of PET bottle Friction Cleaning Machine parameters

Optimizing the parameters is crucial to improve the recovery rate of PET bottle friction washers. Listed below are the key parameters and their optimization recommendations:

Friction force:

  • Adjusting the friction force is critical to ensure effective bottle cleaning. Too little friction may result in poor cleaning, while too much friction may damage the bottles. Select the suitable friction material and pressure according to the bottle type and level of contamination.

Cleaning time:

  • The length of cleaning time affects cleaning results. Too little time may not remove all bottlenecks, while too much time wastes energy and reduces capacity. Determine the optimal cleaning time based on the level of bottle contamination and the friction setting.

Water temperature:

  • Water temperature affects detergent solubility and cleaning efficiency. Choose the proper water temperature, avoiding too high or too low. Higher water temperatures may improve cleaning results but also increase energy consumption. Low water temperature may not be able to dissolve the cleaning agent, affecting the cleaning effect effectively.

Cleaning agent selection:

  • Cleaning agent selection can affect cleaning efficiency and environmental friendliness. Consider its nature, cleaning conditions, and environmental regulations to select the right cleaner. Using low-toxicity and biodegradable cleaners can help minimize environmental impact.

Water Recovery:

  • Water recovery systems can reduce water volume and wastewater discharge. Set up filters or centrifuges to recover and reuse water used in cleaning. This not only saves money but also helps protect the environment.

 

Ensuring optimal operating conditions for PET bottle surface cleaning machines

To increase the recovery rate of a PET bottle surface cleaner, in addition to parameter optimization and process improvement, it is crucial to ensure optimal operating conditions for the machine. Here are a few key factors:

Proper temperature control

  • The PET bottle cleaning process requires proper temperatures for effective lifting. Too low a temperature can lead to incomplete cleaning, while too high a temperature can damage PET bottles. Depending on the type and contamination of the PET bottles, the temperature range is usually between 35 – 65°C.

Adequate Water Volume

  • Hydrophobic washers require sufficient water to rinse and remove the film. Insufficient water will result in poor washing results, while too much water will waste resources. The recommended water volume range is usually 2-4 tons per hour, depending on the machine model and capacity.

Regular maintenance and servicing

  • Regular maintenance and servicing are essential to keep the PET bottle friction washer in optimum operating condition. This includes cleaning screens, replacing abrasives, and lubricating machine components. Regular inspections and maintenance will prevent breakdowns and extend the machine’s life.

Operator Training

  • Operator training is essential to ensure the proper operation of the PET bottle surface cleaner. Operators should understand the machine’s functions, parameter settings, and troubleshooting procedures. Appropriate training can reduce a lot of time and ensure optimal washing results.

Monitoring and Data Analysis

  • Monitoring the operation of the PET bottle surface washer and analyzing data is essential for continuous improvement. Recording data (e.g., temperature, water volume, and wash time) can help identify areas for improvement, such as optimizing parameters or reducing water waste.

PET bottle surface cleaning machine care and maintenance

Proper PET bottle surface cleaner maintenance ensures long-lasting equipment use and improved recovery rates. The following critical care and maintenance steps will help keep your machine in top condition and extend its service life:

Daily Inspection

  • Check the inside of the chute for clogging or wear; if so, clean or replace it immediately.
  • Check whether the feeding and discharging conveyor belts are running well; any abnormality should be adjusted or replaced in time.
  • Check for loose screws and bolts; if loose, tighten them immediately.

Regular cleaning

  • Remove and reorganize the PET chips left inside the equipment regularly to avoid affecting the cleaning effect.
  • Use appropriate cleaning agents to clean the equipment and remove residual detergents or other chemical substances.
  • Always rinse the equipment with clean water after cleaning to ensure no excessive detergent.

Replace consumables regularly

  • Regularly replace brushes on the fiber cleaning to ensure the fiber force is maintained in the best condition.
  • Replace the piping delivery to avoid depletion, resulting in the piping not being exceeded by insufficient bottles and cans piping.
  • Replace the filter to ensure that the cleaning remains clean and to avoid severe impact on the cleaning effect.

Regular lubrication

  • Regularly lubricate the friction plate, cleaning bearings, and drive shafts to ensure the equipment operates properly and reduces wear and tear.
  • Use special lubricants when lubricating; avoid using lubricants that will corrode the equipment.
  • Excessive lubrication should be avoided as it may cause equipment failure.

Regularly check the electrical system.

  • Regularly check whether the electrical components are damaged or loose. Found abnormalities should be replaced or repaired immediately.
  • Check whether the wire has been or is aging; if any, it should be replaced immediately.
  • Prevent equipment grounded well to avoid electrical failure

Across the above, regular maintenance and maintenance work can ensure that the PET performs cleaner to maintain the best operating condition, enhance the PET recovery rate, extend the service life of the equipment, and reduce equipment failure problems.
