In the sprawling landscape of plastic recycling, the quest for efficient separation solutions is perpetual. Our PP PE Plastic Floating Separation Tank emerges as a linchpin in this endeavor, simplifying the segregation of polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) from co-mingled plastic streams, thanks to their relatively lower densities. But that’s not all; while orchestrating separation, this tank also indulges in cleansing the material, prepping it for subsequent processing stages.

Working Principle:

As the co-mingled plastic stream embarks on its journey into the floating separation tank, a straightforward yet effective separation saga unfolds. Plastics and contaminants with densities higher than water (1 g/cm³) find themselves sinking to the bottom, while the lighter counterparts, PP and PE, float atop. This natural segregation based on density differences is the essence of our Floating Separation Tank, ensuring a simple and effective delineation of plastic types for recycling.

Our innovation doesn’t stop at basic separation. The newly designed tank features a “W” shaped bottom, splitting the tank into two halves. As the material stream enters the first half, it encounters a zone where most of the contaminants are captured, ensuring a preliminary cleansing. This half may necessitate frequent water changes and filtration to maintain efficiency. Conversely, the second half remains relatively pristine, further enhancing the cleaning process while conserving water.


  • Efficient Separation: Harnessing the natural buoyancy differences between PP, PE, and other materials, the tank ensures an efficient and effective segregation, paving the way for a smoother recycling process.
  • Water Conservation: The innovative “W” shaped bottom design is a testament to water conservation, reducing water consumption while ensuring optimal washing efficiency.
  • Enhanced Cleaning: The dual-zone setup within the tank not only augments the separation process but also indulges in a thorough cleaning of the material, prepping it for further processing.
  • Simple Operation: The simplicity in design translates to ease of operation and maintenance, making it a hassle-free addition to your recycling plant.


The PP PE Plastic Floating Separation Tank is a versatile asset for any plastic recycling facility dealing with co-mingled plastic streams. Its ability to efficiently separate and clean the material makes it an indispensable tool in the journey towards high-quality recycled plastic.

In a nutshell, our PP PE Plastic Floating Separation Tank is more than just a piece of equipment; it’s a bridge to enhanced recycling efficiency, a commitment to water conservation, and a step closer to a sustainable recycling operation. By integrating this separation tank into your recycling arsenal, you’re not just upgrading your facility; you’re elevating the entire recycling process towards a greener and more efficient horizon. PP PE Plastic Floating Separation Tank-02
