The recycling plant built is made up of 3 different halls, which the materials pass through consecutively. The first hall is the Primary shedding hall where the primary shredder shreds the rubber down to 0 – 100mm product. The material then continues in to a stock pile outside or else is fed into the next stage.
The next hall the rubber is to go through is the Grizzly hall. This is where it is separated into metal, fibre and rubber. The rubber is taken through a walking floor bunker and then fed out in a controlled capacity into 2 different grizzly shredders. These chop it down to 0-20mm. A vibrating deck is then used to split it into 3 products; 0-10mm, 10 – 20mm & metal. Whilst the material is being separated, there is also a vacuum in the hall which extracts all fibrous materials into cyclones. The fibre is taken out of these and then put into a truck. Back in the grizzly hall, conveyers pass the materials through the wall in augers into the milling hall. Lastly, the rubber material will pass through the milling hall where is it put through 2 separate mills. These ground down the rubber to 1-3mm and 2 – 6mm products. These products can then be sold to produce AstroTurf pitches, curbing, rubber matts and more.
