- The 2nd generation HDPE Recycle Hot Press machine is the revamps of the first generation machine. The first generation hot press still has many shortcomings that make production results not optimal, such as porosity defects, limited product dimensions and the manual pressing process. The method used for the 2nd Generation HDPE Hot Press Recycle characterization is RAL23. Factors that have a significant effect on porosity defect are heating temperature factor. Combination of treatments that yield the smallest average porosity defect is 180oC heating temperatur, 3 minute holding time, and opening mold at temperatur 100oC, average porosity defect reached 0 mm2. Factors that have a significant effect on flashing defect are factors heating temperatur, holding time, opening mold temperature. Combinations factor that yield the smallest average flashing defect is a combination of 150oC heating temperatur, 6 minute holding time, and opening mold at 85oC, with an average flashing defect of 12.09 g. Factors that have a significant effect on energy consumption are factors heating temperatur and the interaction of factor holding time. Treatment combinations that yield the smallest average energy consumption that is a combination of 150oC heating temperatur, 6 minute holding time, and opening mold at 85oC with average energy consumption of 0.4233 kwh.
