The objectives of this research are to design, build and test the bottle crusher for PE-type and PET-type plastic bottles and improve the plastic bottle storing system in Klung municipality, Chanthaburi.
The tests conducted by taking PE (Polyethylene) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) which are subjects to be crushed on the standard-sized mesh filters with three different diameters which are 8, 10, and 12 mm. and by selecting three different speed levels in which are 720, 864,and 1,152 revolution per minute (rpm). The results are that the most suitable speed for crushing the PE-type plastic is at 864 rpm. with the 10 mm. diameter mesh filter which gives a crushing ability of 51.80 Kilograms per hour with the crushing efficiency of 95.36 per cent of the total plastic by weight.
