Pocketed coils are one of the most challenging components to process in mattress recycling operations. These metal coils are individually encapsulated in either polypropylene or woven cotton fabric sleeves or pockets and then assembled into units using ultrasonic welds, stitches or adhesives. The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) has completed a sponsored research project with Wisconsin-based Knoble Design LLC to explore a novel approach for recycling pocketed coils, resulting in the successful construction of a small-scale machine demonstrating the approach.
