Equipment used for waste disposal
Here are some types of recycling machines and their uses:
Bag opener: This machine is used to open bags so you don’t need to cut them and you can leave the contents of the bag intact. This machine is modular, so you can adjust it depending on the type or size of bag you are processing.
Conveyor belts: Every industrial-grade manufacturing or processing plant will always have a conveyor belt in their factories. These machines are important for getting your raw materials from one processing machine to another and for getting finished products from the processing plant to the packaging area. Whatever the need, the treadmill will get things done automatically and efficiently.
Separators: Also called sorting machines, their role is to separate different types of waste or garbage. It uses a disc screen or filter to distinguish the types of waste and separate it from the rest. This machine is very flexible since you can modify it to filter different types of waste. You can use it to separate metals, remove liquids, or sort wood from stones and the like.
Universal grinder: Shredders are very essential in recycling. This is the machine that cuts the waste into smaller pieces. Whether it is plastic, paper or other waste, it is important to cut it before proceeding to another processing machine used in recycling.
Baler: A baler is an essential machine in the recycling process. They compress waste into bales or tight bundles. After the initial treatment, the waste is often pressed into bales to be transported to another facility to complete the recycling process or stored awaiting another process.
Paper Refiner: For a recycling facility specializing in paper recycling, a paper refiner would be very important to ensure that the finished product is of high quality. A paper refiner filters the fiber from the paper to improve the ability of the fibers to bond together, creating stronger, smoother recycled paper.
Granulators: This machine cuts or grinds waste into small pieces or granules. Waste in pellet form is easier to transport or store. It might also be necessary to process the materials into pellets before proceeding to the next process.
Rotary shears: This machine runs slowly, has high torque and a double shaft crusher. It is ideal for cutting a large volume of plastic, metal, wires and other waste into small pieces.
Coil separators: This machine is available in mechanical or hydraulic version. It is used to cut problematic or defective paper rolls and separate the paper product from the core. The separated and cut paper will then move on to another process to complete the recycling. Some coil splitters are also configured to cut not only papers but also aluminum coils. It can also be used to cut compacted bundle bales of various raw materials.
Centrifuge Separator: This machine is ideal for recycling processing plants that specifically deal with plastics. It is used to clean, dry and separate different kinds of shredded plastic materials. The rotor of the centrifugal separator rotates at 1,500 revolutions per minute. The perforated trommel, on the other hand, works in the opposite direction. Heavy plastic will sink to the bottom while lighter non-plastic materials and water will be separated through the perforated trommel and discarded.
Here are some of the machines that can be used for recycling. If you want to get into the recycling business, you must first create a plan with the help of industry professionals.
