Turmec’s plant design and advanced sorting equipment will ensure that a high-quality separation of recycled materials is achieved. Turmec equipment includes various screens with optical and magnet elements to maximise the recovery of paper, cardboard, plastic bottles (PET and HDPE), plastic pots, tubs and trays, cans (steel and aluminium).
All incoming material is loaded into a bag splitter that opens the bags and loosen the material before it’s fed onto the sorting line. A quality control station ensures the suitability of material feeding the plant, where it’s sorted via a series of screens into cardboard and paper, cans and cartons.
Plastics, cans and cartons are separated using screens, optical separators, magnets, eddy currents and further quality stations before the final products drop into gated storage bunkers, and a central conveyor moves all materials from bunkers to the baler.
