Our Tuffman® recycling equipment is custom fabricated with advanced material handling design services for our customers. Custom fabrication is essential when you require a piece of equipment that is not standard, but specific to your individual project needs.

Sorting Stations

Tuffman® offers sorting stations in a variety of sizes, including 6-man, 8-man and 12-man models, as well as two mini models of 3-man and 4-man. The larger models are ideal for sorting construction and demolition debris and municipal solid waste material, while the mini models are more suited to for plastics, papers and other light recyclable sorting and separation. Tuffman® sorting stations are perfect for high-volume recycling, material separation and single-stream sorting of a commingled commercial waste stream.

All sorting stations are available in both stationary and portable models. We will custom build any size sorting station to meet the needs of your job site or application.

Trommel Screens

Trommel screens are used in any type or sifting or separation work and are useful for a variety of applications, including the separation of sand/gravel, lumber mill by-products and municipal solid waste (MSW) and in compost production. These screen separators provide proper and consistent size separation. The rotary trommels separate and size material, providing a high output screening. As the material passes through the trommel, the smaller debris falls through the screen openings, passing the larger material on for hand separation, making them a practical pre-screening attachment to a sorting station. The bag breaker models provide automatic bag opening prior to separation.

These units are available in a variety of standard sizes, including 618, 722, 822 and 830, but are also custom made to suit the needs of any job site or intended application and are available in stationary, portable and bag breaker models.

Crossbelt Magnets

Tuffman® also manufactures new CBS crossbelt magnets in 18 inch, 24 inch, 30 inch, 36 inch, 42 inch, 48 inch and 60 inch models. Crossbelt magnets are ideal for recycling operations and are widely used for sorting co-mingled metals and separating ferrous and nonferrous metals. All magnets come equipped with a belt made of heavy-duty rubber with cleats.


In addition to the feed conveyor that comes standard on every Tuffman® recycling sorting station, Tuffman® also offers heavy-duty incline conveyors and extreme-duty incline conveyors for individual purchase or as an add-on to any sorting station. Conveyors are perfect for feeding the sorting material into the trommel screen or from the trommel screen to the sorting station and are available in a variety of sizes.
