GK sorting system provides needed efficiency for C&D recycler

GK sorting system provides needed efficiency for C&D recycler

This past June, Illinois-based General Kinematics (GK) shipped components for a new C&D system installation for KLF Holdings, located in Camellia, New South Wales, Australia. KLF started in recycling approximately 15 years ago with a staff of two, and now produces a large C&D waste stream, consisting of wood, concrete and aggregate, metals, plastic and soils. With their previous system, KLF was processing approximately 30 to 40 tons per hour. The company operates on a small site, and says there are always large stockpiles of materials to maneuver. Running six days per week, it was a challenge to keep up with incoming material, and because their equipment and systems were being pushed to the limit, they were experiencing frequent downtime due to jump-ups and equipment failures. A system was required that could handle higher capacities.

Finger-Screen engineered to handle “lengthy” challenges

Finger-Screen engineered to handle “lengthy” challenges

In auto shredding facilities, scrap material comes in all shapes and sizes. One main component that tends to be a costly maintenance issue are “pokers”: cylindrical metal pieces that are 18 inches or more in length. Pokers can cause downtime, added maintenance costs and material handling issues. Bridging in storage piles or silos, jamming at 90 degree transitions, and damaging optical sorters and belts are just a few of the many problems pokers present. Safety also becomes an issue as pokers enter the high speed belt portion of the sorting process and literally become projectile hazards, with the potential to damage equipment and jeopardize safety. Increased savings and uptime can be achieved if pokers are accurately and efficiently removed from the other metals and processed separately.
