Scrap Recycling Systems

Scrap Recycling Systems

GK Systems’ scrap metal recycling systems are designed+built to maximize material separation, recovery, and return on investment. Custom-designed to fit your business’s needs, GK Scrap Systems can be developed for ferrous, nonferrous, shredding, shearing, and more. Our team of experts have worked on projects big and small, greenfield and brownfield. Our scrap systems don’t need to be entirely new, either. We can upgrade your existing scrap recycling system or provide retrofits as required. It’s your call!

Industry Leaders in Innovation

General Kinematics is a long-time player in the scrap industry. We design+build our equipment to endure the harsh conditions of scrap recycling. We can custom design+build solutions to take on greater load capabilities and feed at higher rates. Our equipment was made to address everyday struggles associated with scrap recycling:

  • GK developed the FINGER-SCREEN™ for Metal Recovery to endure the high-abuse screening jobs that disc screens and trommels can’t handle. 
  • The DE-STONER® Air Classifier utilizes air separation to separate lights from heavies, and its vibratory action and robust construction make it ideal for processing scrap.
  • GK’s Undermill Oscillators (UMOs) are twice as heavy-duty as other UMOs, built to withstand extreme wear and explosions common in scrap shredding.

With over 40,000 installations in 35+ countries worldwide, GK Systems can take on projects of all kinds. If you’re looking for a rugged solution to handle the most challenging scrap processing jobs, contact us today to get started.
