This recycling system automatically and efficiently removes Glass, Containers and Other Contaminates using a Ballistic Separator. The result is a much cleaner paper product, lower maintenance issues and lower overall costs for production for a recycling pulp mill.
A U.S. recycler required a more efficient sorting solution for the separation of Construction and Demolition waste. The existing system was inefficient and could only process around 350 cubic yards of C&D waste. This wasn’t fast enough to keep up with the incoming waste stream.
A Ballistic Separator was recently installed in a Single Stream Recycling and Material Recovery Facility located in Tallahassee, Florida. This facility’s campus encompasses 40 acres and processes construction and demolition (C&D) material, as well as, multi-stream and single stream waste.
This Bulk Bag Loader was used for filling bulk bags with petroleum coke, or “pet” coke. The material is fed into a surge hopper, through the inflatable bag head, and then into the bag. A pneumatic slide gate is used to start and stop the flow of material. The bulk bag loader did not include a scale because weight accuracy was not a project requirement. Once the bag has been filled, it is removed from the loader using a fork lift and placed into shipping containers for export overseas.
Waste wire is brought into a recycling center as baled or loose wire.
Wire is placed on a conveyor and travels to a shredder where it is ground up and shredded into small pieces. This separates the insulation from the wire.
The shredded pieces are conveyed under inline self-cleaning overhead magnet. The magnet removes metallic shredded wire pieces from the conveyor and drops them into a container below.
The remaining non-metallic pieces are conveyed to a separate container for collection and disposal.
This Trash Bag Opening System opens bags containing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW or household garbage).
