    Friction Washer

    For Intensive Washing, Rinsing & Dewatering of Rigid Plastics & Plastic Film

    The Friction Washer is used for washing, rinsing and dewatering of materials such as film flake, PET bottle flake and other rigid plastics. The friction washer is normally mounted on a inclined frame and the material is transported from the lower input point on an inclined angle to the upper end. The inner paddle configuration transports the material flake in a upward direction and simultaneously performs the washing/rinsing process. Fines, water and water soaked paper are removed from the material through high speed centrifugal force and exit out the circular screen cage around the transport screw. The water, fines and paper exit out the discharge pipe located at the bottom of the friction washer. The friction washer is equipped with top mounted water injectors that assist to clean the upper screen area during operation.
