INSTALLATION OF A NEW GENERATION OF DRY COMMERCIAL WASTE SORTING LINE

September 19th 2012

Capitol Recycling, located in Hartford, CT, recently upgraded its fiber sorting line. It upgraded to a commercial / residential sorting line completely designed and manufactured by Sherbrooke OEM.

The retrofitted system has a special finger screen that replaces the traditional OCC screen. The downtime from material wrapping around the rotating shafts was completely eliminated. Also, there is no longer a need for a pre-sort conveyor before screening. The system includes: apron conveyor, finger screen, glass breaker, fiber screen, magnets and optical sorters. The system’s capacity is 20-25 tph for dry commercial waste and 30-35 tph for residential single stream material. A total of 6 employees are working at the different QC stations.

Sherbrooke OEM is currently working on the second phase of the retrofit, which consists of the addition of an optical sorter from Eagle Vizion to clean the mixed fiber coming out of the lower finger screen’s deck.

Sherbrooke OEM was founded in 1997 and specializes in designing and manufacturing equipment for the recycling industry. The Canadian based company has been serving  USA recyclers since its start.
