a full-size Chevy reduced to pieces the size of your fist in 50
seconds. Shredding about 150,000 tons per year, Automatic Recycling
turns cars, trucks, buses, appliances and other scrap into material
that steel mills use in manufacturing their products. Barges are
loaded directly on the Ohio River at Benwood, WV. The facility,
which has close access to major highways and rail systems, serves
the eastern United States and exports products globally.
"Nuggetizer"...reducing problems to solutions
Unique to Automatic Recycling is a proprietary
system developed to fill a long-held need in the steel industry. Called the Nuggetizer,
this highly evolved piece of processing equipment can reduce trim scrap, a byproduct
of steel manufacturing, into nugget-sized pieces the perfect size and weight for
steel companies to use as high-quality coolant in continuous casting operations.
