T & A Australia have designed and implemented
many new recycling plants to customer or kerbside contract requirements,
as well as, modified and upgraded existing plants. They varied from
handling paper, glass or containers only to the full mix of paper
the years T & A Australia have developed their own unique concept
of recycling plant, which is ideal for smaller volumes, but can
readily take in more without any plant modifications.
main features of this concept are:
The plant may be operated by only one person for 'full' sorting
of smaller volumes or at anytime, up to 7-8 persons for a throughput
of up to 6 tonnes /hour.
It therefore allows the plant to be operated on the basis of a
fixed tonnage /man /hour sorting rate, regardless of throughput.
The whole plant of 6 tonne /hour capacity will fit in a building
with a floor area of 30m x 40m leaving ample space for indoor
storage, office space, lunch room and amenities.
The concept can be applied for handling containers only, as well
as, paper and containers mix.
The standard concept layout allows sorting of steel (automatic)
and aluminium cans, all glass and plastic bottles by colour and
type, liquid paper board, etc.
The plant operates continuously, without downtimes for bin changes,
baling activities, etc. and allows for belt speed changes and
control programs in its PLC.
