General Kinematics recently completed the commissioning of a new CD-XL recycling system at Tulsa Recycling and Transfer, of Tulsa, Okla.
The new MRF facility was designed to recover OCC (Old Corrugated Cardboard), but also added the capabilities, through a fully integrated recycling system approach, to recover plastics, metals, paper print, wood, and non-ferrous metals. The system GK installed includes an inclined feed belt with load hopper, a large vibratory FINGER-SCREEN™ vibratory separator, a fines belt with magnetic head pulley, a seven bunker pick station with over-head magnet, and a cross belt to transfer material over a pit to the baler.
Prior to installing the GK Recycling system, the customer was manually sorting 10-12 bales of OCC per day. By adding GK’s recycling system, they now are capable of recovering up to 77 bales of OCC in one day.
Not only did the General Kinematics recycling system automate their process, but it increased their daily throughput significantly, allowing the customer to expand their capabilities for inbound material and increase their resalable material.
