The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
Construction & Demolition Recycling (C&D) is mixed material associated with construction and demolition. The material could include wood, cardboard, plastic, metal, wire, roofing shingles, concrete and more. By separating and recycling different
materials it reduces landfill use and tipping fees, while also producing value-added products.
The materials can be used for the following:
wood is best used for biomass or mulch
concrete and rock can be crushed and utilized for roads, buildings, and other construction needs
metal is sold for scrap steel and copper
roofing shingles can be ground and mixed into asphalt mixes for roads and parking lots
resell architectural salvage and appliances
plastics and clean cardboard can be recycled
An Astec Machine That's Right For You
Peterson horizontal grinders with the R+ package are an ideal tool for primary reduction of Construction & Demolition Recycling. R+ equipped Peterson horizontal grinders turn the rotor at a slower speed and have heavier duty internal components to
handle the tramp metal often found in this application.
Impact Release System that ejects uncrushable material for non-stop grinding
Modified grate supports and reinforced Baffle Plates
pinned rotor for quick hammer replacement heavy duty grates and grate support
optional Crossbelt Magnet hung over the discharge belt to remove and recover metal.
The Peterson Heavy-Duty 8-Pass Carbide Overlay Bit with rails provides the toughness and durability needed in the Construction & Demolition Recycling application where irregular feed material is common. Eight passes of carbide protects the forging
while the rails securely lock onto the holder minimizing the shock of side load impacts.
When grinding C&D material on location or at a waste facility, the goal is to quickly reduce material for efficient, economical transport, or to maximize landfill space through material compaction. A combination of 6” hex grates followed by
8” hex grates will achieve the high production required for this application.
