Container sorter processes 3 Tonnes/HR

Blackburn-based Rishton Paper has purchased and installed a container sort line from Ken Mills Engineering (KME).

The system can handle three tonnes an hour of clean mixed containers, without glass. The sorting conveyor includes five positions, with two for picking out waste and recyclable products that it wants to keep separate from mixed plastics.

The sort system consists of an infeed conveyor, a 9m sort conveyor with bunkers, overband magnets and an eddy current with vibrating feed table.

If Rishton wants to upgrade its plant to take out glass as well, the current layout of the machinery has been positioned to take a glass screen at the front end, which would take the plant up to 10 tonnes an hour.
