Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer Ltd., headquartered in Vaughan, Ontario, has announced that it is increasing its commitment to the U.S. market through Torxx Kinetic Inc., its recently formed and wholly owned subsidiary based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
“Pandemic-related travel restrictions hindered growth, with our North American headquarters in Canada and most of our customers and new opportunities in the states,” says Torxx Vice President of Sales and Business Development Terri Ward. “We’re maintaining a presence in Toronto, with engineering and service resources. However, key personnel and new hires are now in the U.S., making it much easier to collaborate and respond to customer needs."
She adds, “We were attracted to the ‘Scenic City’ because of its favorable manufacturing and transportation resources, proximity to our customers, and its appeal to our valued employees.”
The Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer is a patented size-reduction technology that relies on aerodynamics and matter-on-matter collisions to achieve fine sizing of materials. Feedstock is agitated in the machine by the formation of vortices, which create enough force for material to shatter against itself. Brittle material is reduced to finer particles, while ductile material remains larger. This size differential facilitates the liberation and mechanical separation of contaminants, allowing landfill diversion and recovery.
According to a news release from Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer Ltd., the unit maximizes value by transforming off-spec compost, material recovery facility fines, municipal solid waste fines, C&D fines, mixed glass, asphalt shingles, gypsum wallboard and other complex materials into usable end products.
