Plastic Recycling Machinery
The plastic recycling industry is full of complexity, but with the right experience, it does not have to be. Rotajet is more than a machine manufacturer, we a value-adding partner throughout the lifetime of your operation.
We live and breathe plastic recycling. Recycling is not just a cornerstone of the circular economy but also an extremely lucrative industry if managed correctly.
Whether planning a new facility, looking to refurbish or replace machinery, or optimize your existing systems, Rotajet offers a full range of services, systems, and consumables to keep you fully operational.
Rotajet Recycling Systems
To account for the varying separation needs and levels of contamination across the industry, Rotajet manufactures three distinct separatory machines, including; sink float tanks, vibrating sieves, and zigzag separators. When integrated into a full plastic recycling system, these machines can remove even the finest contaminant particles, thereby producing the highest quality of outfeed material for resale and increasing the profit margins of the operation exponentially.
Once the design of the machinery has been signed off by the customer, Rotajet will take care of the manufacturing, integration, commissioning, and even operator training for the machinery if required.
At Rotajet, we long-term solutions that will keep your operation optimised well into the future. That’s why, as well as manufacturing recycling machinery, Rotajet can also help with the refurbishment, process optimisation, and relocation of recycling facilities.
With these services customer aftercare offers available, you can be sure that your recycling machinery will be in commission for the long-run, making your recycling operation the most efficient as it can be.
Degreasing machinery was the birthplace of Rotajet Systems Ltd and the first of all solutions to be developed by our company. And after 30 years of advancing our range of degreasing machines, at Rotajet we design and manufacture solutions that are fit for the broadest range of purposes and industrial applications around the world.
With product ranges across Swarf Recycling, Spray Washers, and Ultrasonic Cleaners, Rotajet builds both ATEX and non-ATEX solutions for use across many industries, including; aerospace, automotive, rail, military & defense, food & beverage, maritime, jewellery, oil & gas, medical, pharmaceuticals, and printing.
Particularly for the automotive and aerospace, stripping parts and components of contaminants can be a necessary stage to ensuring their optimum efficiency and safety for further use within the industry. Designed with this in mind, Rotajet’s range of spray washers are ideal for removing surface contaminants such as greases, oils, carbon deposits, paints, dirt, and inks, among others from parts and components of various sizes.
Using either aqueous detergents or ATEX-certified wash solutions, these machines can be suited to a wide variety of industry applications: and with multiple machine sizes available, can offer the ideal throughput rate for your specific operation.
We understand that cleaning solutions are required for use by industries across the board and that sometimes cleaning requirements may be more complex than others. With Rotajet’s knowledge and experience, we have built solutions that can be used for even the most specific applications, from food-grade cleaning to ATEX-certified solutions, and even parts washing for the aviation industry.
For even the most specialty applications, Rotajet’s Ultrasonic Cleaners offer the ideal solution to removing various surface contaminants from parts and components, including; oil, chip, polishing residue, limescale, rubber remains, and other general impurities, leaving a corrosion-free product surface.
For larger operations, these machines can be made as turnkey Ultrasonic Multistage Systems that can maximise the efficiency of the operation whilst requiring very little operator input. So no matter your cleaning application and throughput requirements, we’re sure that we have the right solution that is fit for your purpose.
NDT - Specialist Ultrasonic Systems
At Rotajet, we understand that parts and components need to be cleaned to exacting standards, especially when it comes to the aerospace industry. With health and safety being a major factor, we have taken every precaution throughout our manufacturing process, from the design stages right through to installation and commissioning.
To ensure that our cleaning solutions are attuned to the specific contamination and composition of the product being cleaned, Rotajet employs the use of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) systems prior to manufacturing washing solutions, in order to alert of any defects in materials that could potentially lead to health and safety risks if not managed appropriately during cleaning.
Once we have a full understanding of your materials and requirements, we can build a bespoke solution that will revolutionise your cleaning operation. With this level of attention to detail, you can have confidence that your Rotajet equipment will be fit for purpose, without the risk of causing harm to products, operators, or the environment.
Swarf Recycling Systems
Swarf recycling represents a fraction of the manufacturing industry that is often not the main focus of the business and is therefore overlooked as being a profitable resource. At Rotajet, we specialise in building simple solutions to swarf recycling, so that you can turn your metal turnings into a valuable commodity, without having to lift a finger. That way, your operators can continue to focus on what’s important to your business, whilst your Rotajet machine turns your swarf into profit!
When it comes to swarf recycling, we understand that a high standard of cleaning and separation is critical to achieving the best quality of product.
With two types of machine available, Rotajets Swarf Recycling systems can handle everything from the bulk storage and decontamination, to the heating, drying, and ferrous removal of swarf material and metal turnings; leaving you with the highest quality of out-feed that can maximise the profits of your operation.
