The Green Machine® metering bin drum feeder system can be added to most recycling applications and systems to increase their system efficiency. Since it was first implemented, the Green Machine® metering bin feeder system has been recognized as the most durable and efficient system in the industry. In most cases, customers will see a throughput increase of 30 percent once the system has been implemented at the feed end of the sorting lines. The feeder system has been designed to allow for the homogeneous metered flow of materials. This eliminates the need for black belt conditions and enhances presort and screen performance in bulk handling waste recycling systems. The overall bin capacity of our metering bin feeder system ranges from 40 to 120 cubic yards. This often means that one loader is able to handle the duties of the entire plant.
Our system works by making use of corrugated steel impact walls along the feed side of the system. These walls create a push wall and help protect the system from damage. There’s very little risk of a jam or of material getting stuck on drum shafts. However, every drum system is still equipped with a rear discharge door so that any trapped waste can be discharged easily. Our innovative patent pending bag opener system is now an optional addition to our metered bin feeder system. This device will allow the system to automatically open bags without reducing the system’s throughput or disrupting its efficiency.
