A recycling company recently added a Sort 10 Multi Stream System (Sort 10 MSS) design to their existing single stream sorting system for their new Material Recovery Facility (MRF). MetalTech Systems, located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina supplied screens and additional picking stations to their existing equipment, along with design, and start up assistance. The design of the mechanical separation equipment in the Sort 10 MSS allows processing of single stream recyclables, commercial, office, and industrial waste at a rate of 10-12 tons per hour.

Material can be fed through at rates up to 120 cubic yards per hour.
The Ballistic Separator can achieve up to 90% sorting efficiency regardless of weather or moisture. This is better than a Disc Screen or Star Screen that can only achieve 80% to 95% sorting efficiency under ideal conditions such as warm weather, dry material (not baled) and a clean screen.
