LS Dry Label Scraper


 

 

 

 

Description:
The Label Scraper is suitable for removing labels and sleeves of all kinds as well as external dirt from beverage bottles originating from all postconsumer areas.

Function:
The Label Scraper LS removes labels and external dirt from bottles by mechanical friction between cutting elements on a rotating drum and fixed elements in exchangeable housing components. The stator elements can be pre-adjusted for different bottle sizes and can be adjusted if necessary. For doing so, only the outer housing cover has to be removed. The crushed labels and the removed dirt are discharged off the machine together with the bottles and are separated from the material stream over a further ballistics separator

MODE OF OPERATION :
The Label Scraper removes labels and external dirt from bottles by mechanical friction between cutting elements on a rotating drum and fixed elements at the outer housing. The rotor is constructed in a way that allows the efficient removal of labels from different bottle sizes. The dry removal of labels guarantees perfect detection in automatic sorting systems.
