Challenge

During the recent down turn in available C&D Material, a Midwest recycler was looking for other types of material that could be processed through his facility. Like most facilities, he already ran loads of Industrial and Commercial Waste, but still had excess capacity.   System

Approach

The General Kinematics’ FINGER-SCREEN™ vibrating motion spreads material evenly across the deck for maximum separating efficiency. Multiple size separating decks enhance classification while staggered finger positions help to prevent material bypass. With a FINGER-SCREEN™TM already in process of this recycling plant, perhaps it could process a new material like shingles. Although somewhat seasonal, shingles from roof tear offs were available from spring till early fall.  

Solution

By simply running shingles material across his existing 2” open FINGER-SCREEN™TM, the recycling plant found that he could then negative pick the over’s and run them directly into a transfer trailer. Without adding any additional pickers or equipment, this recycler was able to increase the amount of material he recycled.  

Results

This video shows the Shingles easily being separated with the use of the GK FINGER-SCREEN™ .
