Elutriation

Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products. Since the vast majority of plastic is non-biodegradable, recycling is a part of our global effort to reduce plastic in the waste stream. Thousands of metric tons of plastic waste end up in our world’s oceans, having a negative impact on our sea-life, and pollute our waters. Companies that implement a plastic elutriation system can reprocess their usable plastic scraps and reuse them again, for an effective and cost saving method of recycling. Sterling Systems has been providing the most affordable and hard working plastic handling systems for our valued clients since our beginning, back in 1899.

Sterling Systems provides the highest levels of craftsmanship and quality materials that go in to every handling system and elutriation equipment that we have designed and developed over the years. All of our products are proudly manufactured within the United States, and our state-of-the-art facility offers the most advanced and latest technology that can be found on today’s market. We also have a hard working group of expert technicians that have spent may years perfecting our way of doing business, which is providing the most effective and durable handling systems available.

Elutriation is a process that will separate particles, and is based on their size, shape and weight, using a stream of liquid or gas that usually flows in a direction that is opposite to the direction of the residue. The smaller or lighter particles rise to the top, which is known as overflow, because their terminal sedimentation velocities are lower than the speed of the rising fluid. Our systems are designed to provide a reliable and effective method for separating lighter weight material from a more dense material, and vice versa. Our systems are also designed in providing a more simplistic approach in controlling material flow and separation.

All of our handling systems and equipment are specifically designed and manufactured directly within our modern and contemporary facility. Each one of our useful material handling systems have been thoroughly tested and proven in providing the most efficient and cost effective handling solutions for your business. There is now never a need for you to hire an outside company to haul your plastic scraps and debris away from your property, because you can now reprocess your own usable plastic waste and put it back in to good use.
