- System description: Sorting and baling
- Waste processed: Commercial, industrial waste and recyclables
- Plant capacity: 10 T/hour
The sorting plant built for the Luci Group in the Municipality of Sedegliano, primarily treats two types of materials:
• Waste from commercial and industrial activities, consisting of wood, paper packaging and plastics;
• Dry waste from source-separated municipal waste, consisting of paper, cardboard, metal cans and plastic containers.
There are three main process phases: feeding, sorting and baling. Two conveyors set up in sequence perform feeding. The first conveyor is located in a floor pit and is easily loaded using a wheel loader. This conveyor unloads the material onto the lifting conveyor, which takes the waste to the room where the sorting conveyor is set up. The feeder conveyor and the sorting conveyor are provided with variable-frequency drives.
The sorting of various materials is performed through a combination of manual and automatic operations.
Six pairs of channels are set up along the sorting conveyor to receive materials sorted manually from the belt and to convey them into six separate storage bunkers. The first three bunkers have containers equipped with conveyors for the automatic removal of materials; in the other three bunkers, collection is carried out by means of roll-off containers. The sorting room is provided with a ventilation, heating and air-conditioning system. A self-cleaning electromagnet at the end of the sorting conveyor, outside the operators’ room, automatically separates magnetic ferrous metals, which are then collected in a container.
After the sorting operations have been performed, the remaining fraction is collected in a bunker with reinforced concrete walls, from where it is taken by wheel loader to the baler conveyor. The baler, bought directly by the client, is fed by a chain-driven rubber-conveyor belt, which is designed to receive the various materials from the bunker conveyors, or to be fed directly with the waste remaining at the end of the line, or with other materials that do not need sorting.
