THOR is a fixed plant and is designed and built in 2 different sizes for different needs (to process 3 – 8 tons/hour).
This plant is designed for those who want to have a fixed recycling station for the storage and resale of recycled finished products such as sand, rubber and plastic. THOR is the perfect plant for countries with a large influx of seasonal labor and for places where the products can be stored and processed in a collection center.

The drawings shown here are only representative, depending on the size of the chosen system, the entire setting and size of the individual plant will drastically change.
The 85% of the machines in our range are non-commercial: we have designed, engineered and built our plants specifically for the needs of the artificial turf industry needs.
To obtain the final products perfectly clean from any possible fiber residue, among our range we have a specific machine that can be added to this plant, designed to adequately capture any little fiber remained.
The system can be divided into 2 parts:
The plant can be started up in different ways:
Through full artificial turf roll taken directly from the field, through waste material stored in Big bags or through waste material introduced with a mechanical shovel.
From the entry point the material is taken to the buffer. This buffer is necessary to give continuous work to the rest of the system for an hour without feeding new rolls, Big bags or material.
The material is then conveyed into a special dryer which must carry out the first selection between sand and rubber, separating the remaining fiber from the rest of the infill and bringing the material from 5-8% humidity to 0.5%.
Subsequently to this, it begins the last and most important process: the fine selection of sand and rubber, which is obtained by perfectly dividing the two different materials.
The clean and dry sand is placed into the 1 m3 Big bag and the clean and dry rubber into the 2 m3 Big bag.
The electrical energy necessary for the plant functioning can come from a municipal power line or from a diesel generator fully US standards-compliant.
The filters / bag houses have the specific role of cleaning the exhaust air coming from the dryer combustion. There is a 2-hole control to be able to control the exhaust air parameters at any time.
As everyone knows the air that comes from filters is sometimes cleaner than the local normal air for passing through 380 micro “socks” of 3 meters each, which guarantee the good functionality of the filtering operation.
