Agglomerators are extensively used in reprocessing plastics. Many times, the scrap available is film grade scrap. As the scrap is not dense, it makes it impossible to run it through a compounding and pelletizing machines to be extruded into pellets directly.
The agglomerator is fed with the scrap and a little quantity of water is added to it. The agglomerator with the help of its criss – crossed blades and high powered motor heats the material and converts it from film to lumps. The lumps being dense can then be fed to a compounder/pelletizer for extrusion.
