Construction & Demolition Recycling System (video)

Construction and demolition recycling system that maximizes separation efficiency and volume while reducing manual sorting requirements and maintenance.

This large capacity system is located at a construction and demolition business.  It replaces an existing smaller system which could not efficiently handle the large volume of waste and debris.

Waste and debris are dumped onto a vibrating finger screen that separates the over-sized materials from the “heavies” such as concrete, masonry, stones, rocks and ferrous materials.  The over-sized materials are sent to an existing picking platform that consists of four bunkers.  The heavies are sent to a different part of the system that first removes the ferrous materials using a large overhead magnet.  Then the remaining “heavies” are sorted by size and moved to the collection points using conveyors.
