How to Make Egg Tray from Waste Paper?

There are four stages to make egg trays from waste paper, including pulp making, molding system, drying line, and packing system.

1. Making Pulp from Waste Paper

We often use waste paper as egg tray raw material, including old books, newspapers, old paper cartons, etc. So the first step is to break the waste paper into paper pulp. In general, the smoother the pulp is, the better the end products are. For this purpose, our egg tray production line is equipped with hydraulic pulper, pulp refiner, pulp pumps, etc. Besides, you also need to build a water pool and a pulp pool. Beston also has designed an integrated pulping system for small-scale egg tray plant. It works as below:

  • Pour waste paper and water into the hydraulic pulper. It will be pulpified soon and be stored in the pulp pool.
  • Pump pulp into the stirred tank. With the use of the pulp refiner, the pulp will be mixed well.

As you see, what workers need to do is to put the waster paper into the pulper.

2.Pulp Molding System

Pulp molding system is the core part of egg tray production line. The main equipment is the pulp molding machine. According to the design of molding dies, you can make egg trays, egg cartons, fruit trays, seedling trays, cup holders, etc. It is very important. But luckily, it is fully automatic, which makes it easy and safe to operate. Besides that, we also employ a vacuum pump and air compressor. It works as follow:

  • Pulp will be pumped into the forming molds. With the use of vacuum pump, pulp will attached to the mold. Meanwhile, it will remove some water from wet trays. This is the forming stage.
  • Then the transfer molds will remove the trays off using air compressor.
  • After demolding, the molds will be cleaned quickly. Some of Beston egg tray machine is equipped with an automatic cleaning device.

3. Drying the Wet Trays

The wet trays need to be dried. You can choose natural drying, brick drying line, and automatic metal drying line. In general, if you have a small egg tray machine, which can make 1000 to 1500 trays, you can choose to dry under the sun. It will greatly lower your investment cost. Beston can provide you with drying racks and carts. If you want to improve your working efficiency, you can choose a brick or metal drying line.
