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:

  • 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.

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