Short description

Plastic-to-oil conversion machine.


Designed by Blest, the machine uses an electric heater to melt the plastic, the evaporated gases emitted are cooled by a tank of water back into oil. Polyethylene, polystyrene and polypropylene are suitable, and any gases released are filtered into water and carbon.
