On 2nd July 2018, Wendt Corporation announced that it has commissioned a new sorting plant at its Technology Center in Buffalo, NY, that will feature the newest technology and process for the cleaning and sorting of shredded non-ferrous metals.
The new metal cleaning and sorting plant will serve as a full scale (truckload) customer demonstration site and feature core technologies from Wendt’s exclusive partners (TOMRA, MTB, Joest, Westeria), and the latest metal sorting process designed by Wendt. These core technologies include X-ray and colour sorting from TOMRA Sorting, air classification by Joest, Eddy current separators by MagPro, and feeding and material handling equipment by Westeria.
The two previous plants installed at the Technology Center served as automobile shredder residue (ASR) recovery plants - the first for gaylord samples and the second for truckload samples to demonstrate fines, wire, zorba and zurik recovery potential.
The new sorting system can upgrade a variety of materials including zorba and zurik, as well as mixed aluminium scrap into purer products and fully upgraded furnace ready commodities. The flexibility of the system also allows operators the ability to run multiple ways to create different finished products that maximise margin based on market conditions.
The newly commissioned sorting plant offers customers the ability to schedule appointments to test their own materials through the system.
