Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR THERMALLY COMPACTING EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE ARTICLES
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE THERMOCOMPRESSION D’ARTICLES EN POLYSTYRÈNE EXPANSÉ
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for thermally compacting boxes or other articles of expanded polystyrene, comprises a housing (10) having an entry opening (11) and first and second electrically- heated surfaces (14, 16) inclined downwardly towards each other and having a passage (15) at their lower ends. In use, boxes or other articles of expanded polystyrene are introduced into the housing (10) through the entry opening (11) to slide down the first electrically-heated surface (14) and into contact with the second surface (16) : the boxes or other articles melt and the melted polymer drains through the passage (15) and is collected by a receptacle (18), in which it solidifies.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de thermocompression de boîtes ou d’autres articles en polystyrène expansé, qui comprend un boîtier (10) présentant un orifice d’entrée (11) ainsi qu’une première et une seconde surface chauffée électriquement (14, 16) inclinée vers le bas, l’une vers l’autre, et présentant un passage (15) à leurs extrémités inférieures. Lors de l’utilisation, les boîtes et les autres articles en polystyrène expansé sont introduits dans le boîtier (10) par l’ouverture d’entrée (11), glissent vers la première surface chauffée électriquement (14) et viennent au contact de la seconde surface (16) : les boîtes et les autres articles fondent, puis le polymère fondu est évacué par le passage (15) et est recueilli par un réceptacle (18), dans lequel il se solidifie.
