Bollegraaf supplies Netherlands' most efficient plastic sorting system

Appingedam, Netherlands-based Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions and Daly Plastics, located in Zutphen, have completed the installation of the most efficient and professional industrial plastic sorting system currently operating in the Netherlands. The two companies pooled their expertise to create an innovative, modular and fully automatic recycling system. The capacity targets set for the system were exceeded by more than 50%. Every hour, the system delivers around 7 tonnes of perfectly separated plastics. This enables Daly Plastics to realize its ultimate goal: production of extremely pure regranulate for use as raw material in high-quality new products.

Automated sorting robotics technology unveiled

In September at the RWM show in Birmingham, England (www.rwm.com)  Bollegraaf displayed the latest prototype version of RoBB - the automated QC sorting robot. This fully automated robot is engineered to pick multiple kinds of plastics, such as PET, PE’s and PS, as well as paper and OCC, delivering high levels of purity and separation quality during the final stages of quality control, resulting in a significantly higher value of recycler’s output.  

Canada Fibers opens largest MRF of its kind in Toronto

Canada Fibers recently unveiled their new Arrow Road MRF Complex in Toronto – and are calling it the largest Material Recycling Facility of its kind in North America. The facility, located in Toronto, is equipped to recycle both industrial, commercial and institutional (IC&I) waste and residential waste.

Filmgrabber removes foil

The Filmgrabber is a revolving drum with movable spikes that is designed to mechanically remove foil from a flow of materials, making the sorting process smoother. Incoming material flows towards the unit on a conveyor belt and an air system blows the foil slightly upwards. The Filmgrabber spikes pull the foil from the material flow and the remaining material falls beneath onto a separate conveyor. The Filmgrabber removes more than 70 percent of foil larger than A4 from a flow of materials.

Filmgrabber effectively removes foil from flow

Bollegraaf’s patented Filmgrabber is designed to mechanically remove foil from a flow of materials. Foil makes the sorting process more difficult because it often becomes entangled with the other recyclable materials.

Drum feeder for single stream applications

Bollegraaf’s drum feeder for applications in single stream facilities is designed to eliminate “black belt,” providing up to two tons per hour increase in production by maintaining a constant flow of material to the sorting system, and freeing time up for a loader. The drum feeder’s two main elements are a 46 cubic metre capacity bunker with reversible six-inch chain belt with steel slats, and a six-inch steel belt with minimum tensile strength of 24,000 pounds. Units are built with service doors on the sides of the bunker and additional protection at the feeder.
