In order to recycle plastic, metal and composite packaging or household waste collected in bags and put out for collection, the waste needs to be continuously and reliably fed into sorting processes. Vecoplan, High Point, North Carolina, has developed the VSA 250 T bag opener to meet this demand.
The VSA 250 T can be loaded via belt conveyors, shovel grabs or wheel loaders. It is designed to gently opens the bags and empty them. Because the recyclable materials are not destroyed during this process, more material can be recycled. The bag opener’s cutting unit consists of hammers welded onto the two rotors, which operate inside the machine’s large, open cutting frame. The open design of the cutting frame means the cutting unit is designed with the ability to cope with extraneous materials such as stones or hand-size pieces of metal. Because the machine is designed to break the materials, the subsequent sorting of the reusable, recyclable materials is simplified. With a bulk density of around 8 pounds per cubic feet, the VSA 250 T achieves a throughput rate of 35 tons per hour.
