Egg tray manufacturing machine, is a kind of paper pulp molding machine to manufacture egg trays from waste paper. It can be also called egg tray making machine or egg tray production line. In this page, we will give you a detailed egg tray manufacturing project report, including how to get your own egg tray manufacturing business plan.
Introduction to Egg Tray Manufacturing Machine
Raw Materials Used in Egg Tray Manufacturing Plant
- 20-30% waste paper and 70-80% water.
- Available raw materials: waste newspapers, waste books or book scraps, recycled egg trays and used egg trays, waste paper boxes, waste printed matter, and scraps from various paper products;
- Dyeing agent: to manufacture egg trays with different colors, such as red, yellow, green, etc.
- Auxiliary agents (optional):
- Enhancer: to increase the strength of the paper pulp products. Products with enhancers can increase the hardness by 2-3 times, and can achieve tensile, compressive and torsion resistance.
- Waterproof agent: to increase the water resistance of the pulp product. This additive mainly improves the quality of the pulp cured into a model product and reduces the surface tension, filling the internal gap of the product, thereby achieving a waterproof effect.
Different Final Paper Egg Trays to Get
- Paper egg tray for 30 eggs (5*6), 20 eggs (4*5), 24 eggs (4*6);
- Paper egg carton for 6 eggs, 12 eggs, 15 eggs, 18 eggs, 24 eggs;
- Besides chicken eggs, the machine can also make trays for duck eggs, goose eggs, quail eggs;
- Besides egg trays or crates, the egg tray manufacturing machine can be also used for making other paper trays only by changing the mold, such as apple tray, takeaway coffee cup holder, nursery tray, shoe trays or support, electric tray, phone tray, wheel tray, industry package, bottle tray, etc.
The Role of Paper Puled Egg Trays
Generally, egg tray refers to a kind of packaging tool used to hold eggs, duck eggs and other eggs. Its main function is to reduce shock, facilitate transportation and carrying.
The paper pulped egg trays can protect the eggs from external shocks, and prevent damage or deterioration of the eggs caused by light, moisture, etc. By using paper pulped egg trays, the eggs can be protected well, to reduce losses for clients. On the other hand, it can save cost for clients.
Convenient for Transportation
Eggs are produced to be sold on the market. This is a product circulation process. During this process, the eggs will go through numerous links such as transportation, handling, and storage. This requires the packaging of eggs to be able to adapt to this process. The paper egg tray is a good choice.
The development of paper egg trays not only plays an important role in protecting the fragile egg shells, but also reuses discarded materials. Compared with plastic egg trays, the paper pulped egg trays are degradable, which can be thrown like the paper. It is recyclable, and will not generate any pollutants to the environment.
Egg Tray Manufacturing Process – How do You Manufacture an Egg Tray?
The whole egg tray manufacturing process includes: pulping – molding – drying – packing.
Firstly, pulping. The waste paper will be put into the hydraulic pulper. Under the power of water, the waste paper will be made into rough pulp. Then, the rough pulp will flow into homogenization pool. In the homogenization pool, the rough pulp will be refined by the pulp beater. At the same time, the concentration of the pulp will be adjusted well. After adjusting the concentration, the pulp will flow into pool of finished pulp to supply plup to molding machine.
Secondly, molding. The finished pulp will be transported into molding machine by pulp pump from finished pulp pool. Under the suction power of vacuum pump, the pulp will be adsorbed up on molds to form egg tray. Under the blowing force of air compressor, the formed egg tray will be blowed off from molds to enter next process – drying system.
Thirdly, drying. To dry the wet egg trays from the molding system, you can choose three methods:
- Drying in the sun naturally. This drying method is suitable for manual egg tray making machine smaller than 1000pcs/h;
- Semi-automatic bricks building dryer. This drying method is suitable for small machine 1000pcs/h and 1500pcs/h;
- Automatic conveyor dryer. This dryer is built by bricks. It is suitable for 2000pcs/h or above;
- Fully automatic metal dryer. This is suitable for the countries that bricks is expensive, or workshop space is limited.
4. Fourthly, packing. After drying, the egg trays will be stacked by packing machine. The purpose of stacking is for saving space to reduce transportation cost. If the users want to produce egg box. It will need hot press machine. After hot press, the surface of egg box will be smooth and hard with beautiful appearance.
