The report documents a performance test, at nominal design conditions, of the double-deck vibrating screen at Recovery 1 that separates the 'heavies' from air classification of scalped primary trommel unders into an overs stream that is discarded, a middlings stream that is the feedstock for the aluminum recovery submodule and an unders stream that is the feedstock for the glass recovery submodule. Three test runs were conducted at the nominal design throughput capacity of the primary trommel, 62.5 tph. Samples of the three output streams from the doubledeck vibrating screen were analyzed for bulk density, moisture content, particle size, and composition; screening efficiencies, by refuse component, were determined.
