Recycling Systems

Waste wire is brought into a recycling plant as baled or loose wire.

The 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 and inline self-cleaning overhead magnet.  The magnet removes metallic shredded wire pieces from the conveyor and drops them into a container below.

Infeed Conveyor to Multi-Stream Recycling System

Infeed Conveyor to Multi-Stream Recycling System

A recycling company recently added a Sort 10 Multi Stream System (Sort 10 MSS) to their existing single stream sorting system. 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 for the processing of single stream recyclables, commercial, office, and industrial waste at a rate of 10-12 tons per hour.

Metering Bunker and Storage System for Recycling Systems

This metering bunker and storage system operates at the beginning of a recycling system. Incoming waste and recyclable materials are loaded into the bunker by the loader operator.  The bunker evenly feeds the material toward the automatic bag opener or conveyor using a moving floor and rotating drum.  Infeed rates are easily adjusted using the included control cabinet with PLC. Waste material can be fed through the bunker at rates up to 120 cubic yards per hour.

Vibrating OCC Finger Screen

The vibrating OCC finger screen eliminates wrapping, binding, and other high maintenance costs associated with traditional disc screens and star screens used in recycling systems.  In the Sort 10 multi-stream sorting system, this type of OCC screen is used to remove large pieces of OCC, or old corrugated cardboard, from the waste stream before ballistic separation.  This allows for even more efficient sorting downstream.
