Waste Separation Process – How to Segregate Waste

  1. At first, you will need a large area for installation of the municipal solid waste segregation machine. The minimum area of this machine is about 5400 ㎡. When you get all the facilities in the workshop, garbage truck and manpower ready, you can start to segregate your waste.
  2. All the wastes are transported into the workshop and unloaded onto the plate feeder. The feeder feeds them onto the uniform materials spreader which can spread the wastes uniformly on the belt conveyor.
  3. Belt conveyor transits the wastes to manual sorting platform. Workers will pick out large pieces of trashes, such as quilt, big wood branches and hazard waste out.
  4. And then the rest wastes will go to rotatory screening machine. Plastic bags will be broken by a bag breaker before they going to the screening machine. The rotatory screening machine screens the wastes through bores with a diameter of 50 mm. therefore it can screen oversized materials and undersized waste.
  5. Undersized organic wastes (diameter<50 mm) are mostly organics. They will firstly be sent to a magnetic separator to get mettle out and then be collected and packed. Those organic waste are usually used as fertilizer in agriculture. 5.Oversized materials (diameter>50mm) will also go to magnetic separation machine. Metal materials, like iron cans or tins will be separated out. The rest oversized materials will be sent to comprehensive winnowing machine. The machine can pick light plastic wastes, heavy materials and other wastes out clearly.
  6. Light plastic waste will be sent to manual sorting platform again because there will still be impurities in. Finally the plastic waste will be packed by a packing machine. Heavy materials like hard plastic waste, fabrics, rubber products and large organic wastes will also be packed and then wait to further processing.

Those brick bats and stones can be used in construction field as materials for producing new bricks. Organic wastes can be used as fertilizer or the raw materials for biomass charcoal making equipment to make charcoals. Combustible materials are actually the raw materials for producing Rubbish Derivation Fuels. There are also kitchen refuse which can be produced into fertilizer or get bio diesel and metals which can be used as raw materials in steel factories.
