Conveyors and feeders are of great importance for recycling and sorting operations. Conveying and feeding systems transport materials between two locations and help move and spread heavy materials. Conveying and feeding systems for recycling purposes are designed in various types with different applications.
Conveyors for recycling operations
Conveyors carry or transport systems in a recycling or waste management installation.
Depending on the complexity of the waste materials mixture, the conveyor requires robust and durable properties to resist impact, wear, and leak of oil and grease.
Examples of conveyors in the recycling industry include:
Materials Recovery Facilities (MFC’s). Belt conveyors form a critical part of any MRF. The belt conveyors transfer waste from the loading dock to the sorting line and crushers and balers.
Recycling installations for metal parts. In the recycling process of metal parts, conveyor belts must have a solid top cover and fabric to withstand sharp edges.
