Recycling industry


Metal, paper, plastics, textiles, tyres and rubber, glass, electonics… a wide type of waste produced by consumers and industrial manufacturers are transformed into useful raw materials that are essential for manufacturing new products. Megadyne supplies this industry with an economic and environmentally friendly power transmission solution.

Our belts can be found in different recycling applications such as:

  • MRF (Material Recovery Facility)
  • scrap recyclers (shredders)
  • tyre
  • electronics

Rubber, polyurethane, and PVC belts generally perform best in recycling environments. These materials feature strong bonds for resistance to chemicals, oils, and caustic compounds, as well as physical damage from metal and glass.
Rubber belts are hot vulcanized for wear and abrasion resistance. Polyurethane and PVC belts excel in separating applications; these belts feature hot welded cleaner cleats, sidewalls to avoid material spillage and guides to improve tracking.

Success Stories

  • Glass Breaker
  • A manufacturer contacted Megadyne with the challenge of designing a cost
    effective, compact drive system to actuate the rotating, glass-crushing drums of a
    glass breaker. They required a durable light weight system with low maintenance
    requirements. Due to the great amount of torque required to rotate the drums, a
    very strong drive system was required.
