Municipal Solid Waste Recycling (MSW) Processing Systems

Municipal Solid Waste Recycling (MSW)

MSW Application

The “Dirty MRF” or Municipal Solid Waste Recycling (MSW) Processing is the final evolution of Single Stream Recycling with system designs that process non-source separated waste into organic material streams, recyclable commodities and trash.

Common ask Questions about Green Machine’s Waste Recycling Systems

Question What does your company currently offer and how does the system work?

answer Our system design places profitability ahead of recovery rates. Most large scale MSW processing plants fail primarily because they are too costly to deploy, too costly to operate and produce a contaminated recyclable material product. It is our philosophy to process large tonnages at the lowest processing cost per ton while capturing the high value recycling commodities at recovery rates that don’t adversely affect throughput.

Question What materials is the system designed to sort?

Question Our systems designs process both dry and wet MSW waste and can accommodate removal of most commodities but we find that the systems which concentrate on the sorting of large OCC, Mixed Paper, Mixed Plastics, Ferrous and Non-Ferrous recyclable materials with a fines removal capability are the most profitable.

Question How does a system design figure into overall operational efficiency?

Question Our system efficiencies depend on proprietary screening technologies, automatic optical sorters, typical magnetics producing an 60 TPH throughput with as few as 11 total force with 30% + recyclable material diversion rates. We find that to be a sweet spot where clean recyclables are collected and customers over all investment / operating costs reach maximum profitability.

GREEN MACHINE® offers over 30 years of experience in the handling and processing of municipal solid waste recycling. Early experience in (Dirty MRF) design has helped our current higher tech systems meet the demands of all material processors. As our industry evolves, most indicators show that (MSW) recycling will someday replace (Single Stream) mixed recyclable processing. Our vast experience in various material mixes and unique maintenance criteria have Green Machine® poised to be a leader in this inevitable evolution. Whether your needs are for a Front–end separation for Waste Conversions or an economical solution for diverting high value recyclables from land filling GREEN MACHINE® has the solution.

Municipal Solid Waste Recycling (MSW) Processing

1. Vibrating Pan Feeder

MSW Recycling

Step 1 is designed for rugged operation and is isolated from loader or material shock damage by having the entire vibrating body resting on steel coil springs. Pan and sides are lined with various materials depending on the operation. Vibrating body is designed to withstand the necessary high gravity force stroke required (3 G’s minimum and higher) to efficiently Accept, Meter, Segregate, mitigate glass breakage and material “fluffing” as well as evenly feed MSW to the downstream process equipment. These items are critical to efficiently processing MSW.

2. Infeed Up-take Steel Pan Apron Chain Belt Conveyor

Infeed Up-take Steel Pan Apron Chain Belt Conveyor MSW

Step 2 is constructed in such a manner to accept material from Item 1 and runs at a faster speed than Item 1 to improve the material separation and presentation to down stream equipment.

3. Modular “Brute Force” Vibrating Multi-Surface Screen

MSW Recycle

Municipal Solid Waste Recycling

Step 3 is designed for rugged operation and is isolated from material shock damage by having the entire vibrating body resting on steel coil springs. Pan and sides are lined with various materials depending on the operation. Vibrating body is designed to withstand the necessary high gravity force stroke required (3 G’s minimum and higher) to efficiently Accept, Feed, Segregate, Separate, mitigate glass breakage as well as evenly feed MSW to the downstream process equipment. These items are critical to efficiently process and separate MSW into distinctly separate processing streams by size and characteristic.

4. Vibrating Multi-Surface Screen Over Sized Material Take Away Sorting Conveyor

Material Take Away Sorting Conveyor MSW

Step 4 is constructed in such a manner to accept processed material from Step 3, (top screen surface over sized) and conveys at a faster speed than Step  3 to improve the material separation and presentation to manual pickers and down stream equipment.

5. & 6.Vibrating Multi-Surface Screen Middle Sized Material Take Away Transfer Conveyor, Vibrating Multi-Surface Screen Middle Sized Material Take Away Sorting Conveyor

Transfer Conveyor MSE

Material Transfer Conveyor MSW

Steps 5 & 6 are constructed in such a manner to accept processed material from Step 3 (top screen surface under size and bottom screen surface oversize) and conveys at a faster speed than Step 3 to improve the material separation and presentation to manual pickers and down stream equipment.

7. Vibrating Multi-Surface Screen Under Sized Material Take Away Transfer Conveyor

Municipal Solid Waste Recycling

Step 7 is constructed in such a manner to accept processed material from Step 3 (bottom screen surface under size) and conveys at a faster speed than Item 3 to improve the material separation and presentation to down stream equipment.

Steps 8,9,10 Step 4 Over Band Cross Belt Magnet, Item 5 Over Band Cross Belt Magnet Item 7 Head Pulley Permanent Magnet

Under Sized Material Take Away Transfer Conveyor MSW

Steps  8,9,10 are constructed and positioned in such a manner to remove ferrous particulate as the final stage of recyclable materials. The magnetic separation equipment is located in optimum places to provide efficient and effective removal of ferrous metal.
