The installation is capable of sorting 60 tons per hour of MSW material. The MAG Group is expecting Failure-Free operation of the equipment since the Waste Sorting Complex is designed for around-the-clock operation. Also the beneficial effect on the environment in the region, due to high-quality and efficient extraction of the maximum quantity of useful fractions from waste plays, a major role in the project.
The installation will be equipped with several technologies of Bollegraaf including the Elliptical Separator, which is a ballistic sorting machine. The Elliptical is unique because of the adjustable screen surface and the way it agitates the material.
The installation is also equipped with the patented Bollegraaf ‘anti-wrapping’ starscreen. This screen deck does not wrap, but does have the high output and aggressive agitation, preventing the smaller parts from sticking to the larger parts. This results in a better performance of the following sorting process.
The large cardboard is separated from the material flow by the Bollegraaf OCC (old corrugated cardboard) screen. Paper, small cardboard, and small material will be screened off. This particular screen is placed at the beginning of the sorting installation to separate large cardboard, making manual separation of large cardboard redundant.
