With Regreen’s Technology, the process begins by placing waste material on to the initial conveyor. The system can use a small loader or it can be configured to accept material directly from collection vehicles. The process is very useful for waste material with high organic content. The TWS comes equipped for a ”negative sort”, removing rocks, metals, and other inert materials or potential contaminants. This sorting line is on the ground level and is typically three feet wide.
With heavier sorting requirements, Regreen has the option of adding a trommel screen and elevated sorting line for the removal of recyclables. Immediately prior to the sorting line, the rotating trommel screen can be placed to remove materials that are under a designated size. Typically, this screen is 3 inches, so all small materials will drop into the ground level sorting line. At this point metals will be removed by a ferrous magnetic sorter and rocks and glass are removed by a sorting personal. The trommels are sized to the desired processing capacity of the system, also it could be designed at the client’s discretion. Also, additional mechanical sorting equipment may be added such as optical sorters and air handlers or other processing equipment.
All of Regreen’s process systems starts with shredders featuring a proprietary design. The system is the heart of the Regreen systems.
