These are the plants which sorting is mostly done by the mechanical equipments and optical seperators. In these plants, humans are positioned in quality control and operation. A fully automated sorting plant generally includes scrape crane, bag opener, trommel screen, ballistic seperator, optical seperator, magnetic conveyor, eddy current seperator and baler press. In the design of these plants, factors such as waste characteristics, the recycables which wanted to be sorted, capacity, operational expenses are considered. In light of these information and with the results of a feasibility study, the design is completed.
In fully automated plants sorting efficiency rates are higher compared with the manual ones. Some materials which is hard for humans to recognize cab easily sorted by the equipments and performance of the machinery is constant for the whole shift.
On the other hand, due to natüre of operation of the machines (as example; ballistic seperator’s stirring up and optical seperator’s blowing with air) materials are sorted
In semi-automatic plants waste is seperated in different conveyors depending on their size and shapes by mechanical equipments before manual picking platforms.
In this way organics are seperated before manual sorting to improve sorting quality. Ferrous and Non-Ferrous metals are sorted by machines automatically. Waste is seperated by its shape as 2 dimensional and 3 dimensonal. With this, sorting efficiency is increased with the same amount of manpower. Labor expenses decreased significantly. These plants generally includes equipments such as Feeding equipment, bag opener, trommel screen and/or finger screen, ballistic seperator, magnetic seperator, eddy current seperator and baler press.
With this in hand, indifferent projects depending on needs, different designs are made for achieving maximum efficiency.
This Plants are ideal for low costs and low tonnages. In this project, sorting garbage from the feed conveyor on the platform of the sorting conveyor with manual procedure the selected materials are taken down
from the buckets accumulating and then with the help of materials loader in the back is pushed to the press feeding conveyor and baled. Low tonnage, low budget, land shortage It is easy to install and easy to use.
