Zanker Recycling has opened a 75 tons-per-hour (tph) construction and demolition debris materials recovery facility at its San Jose, California operation, more than doubling its capacity to process this type of material.
Eugene, Oregon-based Bulk Handling Systems designed, manufactured and installed by system.
The company expects to recover upwards of 90 percent of inbound materials.
After primary screening to remove large items, two BHS debris roll screens prepare two size fractions for air separation. After sizing, four nihot single drum separators (SDSs) separate by density. The first SDS units remove aggregate material, such as rock and brick, while the second nihot units extract wood from lighter material.
“This group is recycling a wide range of materials, from single stream to mixed-materials to organics and compost through anaerobic digestion, leading the way towards zero waste” says BHS CEO Steve Miller.
