Bales of sorted by color bottles are fed into washing line SOREMA (Italy) and pass 5 stages: rinsing in cold water, magnet conveyor, rinsing in hot caustic solution, manual sorting, metal separation. All bottles are coming through 2 inductive metal separators.
Rinsed bottles are conveyed to grinders and grinded into flakes. Then flakes are washed with hot caustic solution with special washing liquid. Washed flakes are thoroughly squeezed and rinsed. Clean and dry flakes come through final metal separator and unloaded into 2m big-bags. All flakes pass quality control.
