With patented in-line newly-installed automated recycling center for discs, the BHS Polishing Screen is the only Wood Country Solid Waste Division in Ohio. disc screen that virtually eliminates material “The key to this whole thing is the screen,” says Scott Rieman, manager of the Bowling Green facility. “I call it the magic carpet.” Since the new system has been in operation, the recycling center has increased its recovery of recyclable materials by 93 per cent.
The BHS Polishing Screen has the unique ability to create three material fractions: mixed fibre, containers and fines. The mixed fibre is conveyed over the screening surface, while the containers and three-dimensional objects roll off the back of the screen and are consolidated for sorting. The fines, consisting of bottle caps, dirt, grit and small fibre, fall through the screening surface and are conveyed for disposal. The three-sort unit provides an extremely clean container stream, resulting in improved recovery of valuable containers and virtually no loss of fibre to residue.
BHS’ patented tri-disc composition has the longest disc wear in the industry and features a two-piece design for easy replacement of discs without shaft or bearing removal. The screen can be used as a second screen in a single stream system or as a primary screen in smaller systems.
