The first piece of machinery in our standard PET washing line’s drying process, the dewatering machine is capable of removing a majority of water content from the PET flakes exiting the friction washer. To accomplish this, centrifugal force is used to spin water outwards while the PET flakes are contained within.
As the slurry PET flakes are fed into the vertical feeder, a spinning shaft with paddles mounted spins at nearly 1,000 rotations per minute continuously throws the PET flakes outwards against a mesh screen tunnel. Water passes through the mesh screen while the PET flakes are contained within. The PET flakes, now partially dried with moisture content between 20-30%, moves onto the thermal dryers.

The lead time for standard equipment is 30 days. For custom orders or complete washing lines, the lead time is between 60 – 90 days. The actual lead time will depend on the complexity of the project as well as the amount of machinery we have in queue at the time of your order.
