This report documents two series of samplings and the monitoring of enery consumption and shredder hammer wear of the upgraded ferrous recovery system that produces a light ferrous product from the processing of municipal refuse at the New Orleans resource recovery project. A series of system samplings was conducted for each of two refuse processing lines that provide ferrous to the ferrous recovery system: Line No. 1--primary trommel and shredder; Line No. 2--shredder only. Beyond the trommel unders and shredded material primary magnets, the upgraded ferrous recovery system includes an air knife to remove loose contamination and separate light and heavy-gauge ferrous, a light ferrous shredder to liberate attached contamination and densify the light ferrous, and a secondary magnet for cleaning of the shredded light ferrous.
