Egg Tray Production Process

The production process of egg trays can be basically divided into four links: waste paper pulping, egg tray moulding, drying, and packaging.

Pulping system refers to the process from waste paper to pulp. The recycled newspapers, magazines, and other waste paper are transformed into usable pulp after a series of processes such as soaking, crushing, stirring and pulp mixing.

Pulping process


The moulding is the core process of egg tray making.

After the pulp is adjusted to the concentration required for molding, it is sent to the pulp tank at the bottom of the egg tray machine; The forming mold of the egg tray machine will be transferred into the slurry tank with the drum, and the pulp will be sucked into the mould by vacuum adsorption; After that, the forming mould and the transferring mould bite each other to form the pulp into an egg tray wet blank, which is sent to the conveyor belt by the transferring mould.

After being moulded to egg trays, the pulp still contains a high content of water, which must be removed through the drying procedure.

The drying line uses fuel oil, electricity or steam as the heat source to heat the air inside the drying tunnel to 180 ~ 220 ℃. The molded pulp products sent into the tunnel will be fully dried in the hot air, and the fan will extract the water evaporated from the products, so the product can be rapidly dried.

The drying line in egg tray production

We provide two drying schemes: single-layer drying line and multi-layer drying line. The single-layer drying line covers a large area, but the construction cost is low; the multi-layer drying line covers a small area and has high thermal efficiency, but the construction cost is also high. Customers can choose the appropriate drying method according to their own plant size, budget and energy conditions.


After being fully dried, the egg trays are ready to be packaged and delivered to retailers.

the dried egg trays can be auto packed

Although the cost of manual packaging is cheap, such packaging efficiency is too low. For manufacturers with large output, we provide automatic packers, which can pack egg trays more efficiently.
