Line for sorting solid waste 150 000 tons per year

The solid waste sorting complex provides selection of valuable secondary raw materials out of waste and then sending them to the final processing points. Solid waste goes to the receiving department to the specially designed pits, where the receiving L-type conveyors are located. Then the conveyors deliver the waste to the drum separators (screens). The screens are used to separate fine fraction (organic, soil, etc.). The screens are made of a mesh drum. A packet breaking system is installed along the entire length of the screens. There are conveyors for removing fine fraction into special containers under the screens. Selected raw material goes on the inclined conveyors from the screens to the useful fraction selection room. The room is heat-insulated with sandwich panels, has metal-plastic windows and doors, exhaust ventilation system, lighting and electric heating. There is a sorting department with installed inspection (sorting) conveyors for manual sorting of useful secondary raw materials in the room. From the inspection conveyors, the waste goes to the tailings conveyor, above which there is an iron separator that separates metal products with the help of magnet into a separate container. Special conveyors for delivering solid waste to the press are installed under the room for selection of useful fraction.
