A new single stream materials recovery facility (MRF) in High Point, N.C., provided by Machinex is operational as of January 2018. The comingled recyclables being processed at the MRF are coming from parts of Guilford County and Jamestown, N.C.
"In addition to meeting the project requirements, we were impressed with Machinex’s complete solution approach in being able to design, manufacture, install and service the entire system. We are excited to evaluate the efficiencies for processing and recovery,” said Melanie Bruton, superintendent of the MRF, in a statement.
The 10 TPH residential single stream system features the new MACH Double-Deck OCC screen, which reduces wrapping and improves cardboard recovery. A MACH Ballistic Separator was installed instead of a traditional disc screen to separate the fibers from the containers. A ferrous magnet and a Machinex Eddy Current Separator were installed at the end of the container line.
"Obviously, we are quite proud to have been involved in the winning bid for the High Point, N.C., city MRF. After all, High Point is the location of Machinex’s U.S. Corporate Headquarters,” said Rusty Angel, eastern region sales manager for Machinex, in a statement. “A local building contractor submitted the successful bid, and we supplied them the equipment. Our project management teams worked closely together to deliver a successful project for the city and to optimize the performance of their system. This system not only meets High Point’s current processing requirements but provides plenty of room for additional tons they may bring into the facility in the coming years."
