The integrated system for maximum efficiency

BHS offers a complete system whose individual components are optimally aligned towards achieving maximum recovery rates when processing the input material. This also means that any extraneous materials, particularly metal parts such as screws, nails and grid sections, can be recycled. The recycled gypsum is chemically identical to natural gypsum, which is why it is being used more and more in a growing number of applications.
