The recycling unit
|Gypsum Recycling Unit |
||In 2001, following years of intensive research and development, Gypsum Recycling International introduced the first patented mobile unit to revolutionise gypsum waste recycling.
The original recycling unit consists of one mobile trailer with an annual capacity of 100.000 tons. Even though it weighs 47 tons, with a length of 24 meters, a height of 4 meters high and a width of 3 meters, it can still be transported on ordinary road by normal trucks. Based on the experiences from the original version and continued R&D efforts, the next generation of units, called XL Recycling Units, were introduced in 2005. The XL units have an even higher capacity and we have XL units in Europe and in The US. The XL units consist of two trailers allowing them to be transported on normal road in all countries without any special permits.
All units recycle both new gypsum waste and waste from reconstruction and demolition. Embedded in the unit is a patented functionality that effectively removes nails, screws and other impurities from the gypsum in the recycling process. The gypsum waste is recycled into gypsum powder ready to substitute above 30 pct. virgin gypsum in the production of plasterboards.
The recycling units developed by Gypsum Recycling International are based on proprietary technology and patents and have the following characteristics:
- Produces recyclable gypsum powder — a low cost but high value raw material to gypsum and plasterboard manufacturer
- Handles new construction waste as well as demolition waste
- Separates the paper and all impurities and foreign objects away from the gypsum core
- Fully automated with automatic controls and sensors
- Very compact and takes up limited space in the height
- Almost noiseless
- Virtually no paper residual left in the powder which is 99 pct. as good as virgin gypsum
