Plessisville, Canada, October 4th 2011 – Machinex Technologies proudly announces its presence at the Rumpke Columbus (OH) Material Recovery Facility Grand Opening. Featuring Machinex Technologies Equipment, the system was designed based on pursuing the sorting capability of the Phase #1 system separating OCC from single stream recyclables. The main focus of Rumpke's decision was to be capable of processing 30 to 35 TPH with minimal reliance on manual sorting.
The system starts with a second pre-sort system to collect small OCC, box board, chip board, and to remove plastic bags. A scalping screen and fines screen device will be use to break glass and to divert the 4" minus fraction directly to the finishing screen. Multiple ONP Screens are then used to insure maximum efficiency in sorting news while minimizing labor associated with manual sorting. The container sorting line includes equipment such as Flat Fraction Separators, Magnets, Eddy Current, Optical Sorting Units, and Glass Cleanup System.
"Machinex adapted well to a unique situation," said Jonathan Kissell, Rumpke corporate communications supervisor. "Rumpke has had a good experience with Machinex on several projects, including the renovation in Columbus and an aluminum can processing system in Georgetown, Ky."
Machinex and Rumpke have teamed together with equipment and systems in other locations such as Georgetown, KY, Dayton, OH, and Columbus, OH. The turnkey system in Columbus is the first complete single stream plant that Rumpke and Machinex have completed together.
