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.
Sort and Separate Paper, Plastic & Glass - Recycling
A ballistic separator can achieve up to 90% sorting efficiency in a recycling system 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.
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.
This material transfer system loads and unloads plastic scrap in bulk bags and boxes for recycling. The custom manufactured components included (3) bulk bag unloaders with vibratory agitation, (2) bulk bag filling machines (shown in picture), and (1) bulk box loader. After competitive testing, the bulk bag filling machines proved to be the only ones capable of effectively transferring the large, interlocking shreds of plastic scrap into bulk bags.
We provide sales representation for manufacturers of single stream recycling equipment that offers a cost effective way to process 8-10 tons per hour of single stream, commercial, and office waste. This type of equipment provides smaller recycling centers, with a limited amount of single stream material, to also process commercial and office waste. Read the full article
This bag opener is specially designed for recycling systems and facilities. It can open bags with 95% efficiency. It uses a patented bag opening mechanism with no rotating shafts to open bags found in single stream/co-mingled, MSW, and waste paper. It also has a built in storage bunker that automatically feeds recyclable material evenly toward the bag opening mechanism. The storage bunker is low profile for easy loading and can range in size from 25 to 60 cubic yards capacity.
This recycling system processes roof shingles into a granular product that is used in the production of asphalt. Before grinding the shingles, wood, metal, and trash are removed. A vibrating finger screen separates the asphalt shingles from the oversized metal and wood in the material. A magnetic separator removes the tramp metal. The processed shingles are fed to a picking belt conveyor. The oversized metal, trash, and wood is sent to a landfill.
New recycling equipment was installed at a materials recovery facility, or MRF, owned by Tulsa Recycling and Transfer of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Prior to installation, the customer was manually sorting 10-12 bales of old corrugated cardboard, or OCC, per day. The new recycling equipment was designed to recover more of the old corrugated cardboard, but also recover plastics, metals, paper print, wood, and non-ferrous metals at higher rates.
