Liquid Extraction from Beverage Cartons

Apart from PET bottle, Aluminum can, a carton is also a major form of beverage packaging. Just like the former two packagings, beverage cartons also face the problem of recycling. The date expired, line-rejected, returned, and daily consumed beverage packaged in cartons cause a large number of waste beverage cartons for the manufacturers and recyclers.

Liquids in Beverage cartons are even much harder to get extracted by labor work than the PET bottles because the holes on the cartons are very small. Therefore, mechanical support is very necessary for this situation. Poseidon Series of GreenMax recycling machines is just available for packaging and containers like beverage cartons. With strong mechanical pressure, the liquid can be easily extracted.

About Beverage Cartons

Beverage Cartons usually consist of several layers of materials according to the preservation characters of the beverage inside. Milk, juice, and tea are the main types of beverage that packaged in cartons. Take milk box with roof structure for example. The milk box has three layers: polyethylene, paper, and polyethylene, just for the purpose of keeping the milk stay fresh and preserve its original flavor.

Cartons have good properties of light in weight and strong renewability. Generally, beverage cartons are compositely made of paper and other materials like aluminum foil and polyethylene plastic, all of which are recyclable. The paper used in cartons is long-fiber pulp and is the high-quality raw material of regenerated paper.

The Current Recycling Situation

Now more people are aware of the importance of resource recycling and environmental protection. Paper beverage cartons as having great recycling values are gradually catching people’s attention. There are recycling nets in this field. Large-scaled beverage distributors, individual collectors, recycling companies collect and recycle waste cartons from different sources, and then transport them together to the reprocessing companies where waste carton materials are made into new valuable products, like regenerated shopping bags, Kraft paper, notebooks, and so on.

The collection and recycling step mentioned above is just where the Poseidon machine can play an important role. Individual collectors commonly get the cartons thrown by beverage consumers so there are fewer liquids or residues in the cartons, but the large-scaled distributors and recycling companies have a large number of waste beverage cartons, part of which are line-rejected, date-expire, and returned beverages.

Therefore, they are quite in need of professional recycling machines to help them solve the problem of extracting liquids and compacting cartons efficiently. GreenMax Poseidon machine is able to provide the following services and facilities to deal with the waste beverage cartons with liquid and help to save handling cost and transport space when recycling.

1. Dewater: Automotive compression makes the drink liquid separated from the packaging.
2. Compact: Strong pressure compact the cartons into smaller volumes with the ratio of 6:1.

3. The separated liquid could be collected in the tank to get recycled and reused again in an appropriate way.
