material, which has been tested, profiled and manifested, arrives
at our site via truck transport.
driver presents the manifest documents to our Warehouse foreman for
approval and acceptance before entering the processing area.
the paperwork is in order, the material proceeds to the back of the
main building to enter the plant.
arrival, the material is visually inspected by our staff to see if
the load matches the manifest. Then, the material is off-loaded into
the containment area for further inspection and verification that
the load does in fact match the paper work.
If all is well at this point, the material continues into the

discrepancy in the load is found and the material does not conform
to the manifest description, the load is rejected and returned to
the generator. (Generator is called immediately)
material should be free of liquids. However, in the even that liquids
are present, the containment area is fitted with a large sump containing
a commercial submersible pump which evacuates liquids into an oil/water
this step, the liquids will go into proper storage tanks for disposal
and/or recycling in the case of oil.
the material in picked up with the loader and put into the shredder
is a metal catch basin (containment) directly below the cutting blades
of the shredder to catch any liquids that may have carried over into
this phase of the process. This
containment device is hard-piped back into the main containment area
for proper routing of these liquids.
shredded material is carried via a conveyor belt towards the compactor
unit. In route it will pass through an electronic
metal extruder device which will remove the shredded ferrous metal fragments
and deposit them into a scrap metal bin which is located adjacent to
the extruder device. This
valuable material is shipped of-site to a properly permitted metals
reclamation facility where the metals are smelted and re-used in industry.
conveyor belt is fitted with a galvanized metal trough that catches
and routes and free liquids that may still be present at this stage
of the process into the catch basin under the shredder.
The collected liquids drain into the main containment area
remaining shredded material continues on its journey into the compactor
unit. In the compacting chamber the material
is further reduced in mass as it is crushed under 90,000 p.s.i. by the hydraulic pre-crusher unit. (Minimization process)
is a final drain station at the compactor unit for any liquids that
may have come this far in the process.
This liquid is routed into an additional sump station that is
tied-into the same sump station that is located in the containment area.Next,
the material is pushed into one of our compactor bins, which further
reduces its mass. Following this final step, the material is transported
off-site to use as supplemental fuels i.e. Waste to Energy.
