Built to Perform, Built to Last


Metering Equipment


Featuring a heavy-duty rotating drum that prevents surges and provides a consistent material feed rate, the Metering Drum cost-effectively layers light and heavy materials at the outset. An electric eye monitors the material being fed to the drum from the primary feed. The eye is adjusted to ensure there is always a bit too much material in front of the drum, but also that there is not material overflowing the containment area. This eye is capable of starting and stopping the feed conveyor and therefore capable of automating what the loader/operator does.

The result is optimum efficiency and increased throughput, system-wide. Whatever the size of your MRF, you will benefit from increased system capacity, decreased downtime and an immediate return on your investment.

Features and Benefits:

  • Provides a consistent material feed rate into the system
  • Increases throughput
  • Prevents surges
  • Cost-effectively optimizes system separation efficiency
  • Maximizes screen efficiency
  • Allows for more efficient manual sorting
  • Increases system capacity
  • Decreases downtime caused by over-feed surges
  • Heavy-duty construction
  • Multiple throughput capacities available
  • Designed and engineered for fast, easy retrofit
  • Auto-sensing hydraulic lifting system


The Drum Feeder utilizes an above ground hopper with either a walking floor or conveyor to move in-feed material into a rotating metering drum to provide even flows of both light material over the drum and heavier materials under. This layering of light and heavy materials creates the most efficient presentation to automated or manual sorting in order to cost-efficiently maximize efficiency system-wide while increasing throughput as well as recovery.

Features & Benefits:

  • Provides a consistent material feed rate into system
  • Increases throughput and system capacity
  • Eliminates the need for pits and other costly civil work
  • Prevent surges and decreases downtime
  • Cost-effectively optimized system separation efficiency
  • Maximizes screen efficiency
  • Allows for more efficient manual sorting
  • Multiple throughput capabilities available
  • Heavy duty construction for durability
  • Designed and engineered for easy retrofit


The belt scale trough roller conveyor was specifically designed with a scale positioned below the belt weighing the material as it passes over the rollers. This innovative design enables our customers to have complete control of processing, mixing or blending of different materials. The belt scale can be added to an existing facility for high accuracy inventory control with the ability weigh throughput.
