UK Developments Review
Recent developments and a major contract for Nottinghamshire Recycling Limited (NRL) to provide regular large volumes of RDF material as an environmentally responsible alternative to fossil fuels, meant that a specialist high-volume shredder was required to link to the existing recycling plant for this specific purpose.
NRL turned to Blue Central who supplied and installed a Lindner Power Komet 2800 shredder in conjunction with Mach Tech Services. This is now an integral part of the existing recycling plant, generating high-quality RDF as a final and additional process in reclaiming from the landfill material.
The Kiverco recycling plant comprises a number of processing and materials handling modules. These consist of a series of free-standing feed, transfer and discharge conveyors, which provide the essential linked materials flows for the processing equipment, a four-bay covered picking station and for stockpiling varied recycled waste materials.
Full skirting, impact bars, feedboots with full impact sections, overband magnets for tramp metal extraction and strategically located air separators for "lights" removal are included where necessary throughout the system. Heart of the recycling plant is a Kiverco 830 trommel which screens to specific fractions, including -20mm fines which are sent for further recycling.
The plant is capable of a 40 tonnes per hour throughput. The Power Komet 2800 is a twin drive machine, weighing in at 28 tonnes. Featuring a robust and low-maintenance direct drive system with a safety clutch mounted directly on to the rotor shaft and a generously proportioned 4.5m³ hopper with feed opening dimensions of 2825mm X 1700m, the massive rotating knife has a continuous cutting edge through rib-shaped segments.
This ensures optimum cutting performance; a sickle-shaped hydraulic pusher system ensures problem-free material supply to the rotor. The rotor length is 2.825 metres, the knife is equipped with 80 blades and 16 counter blades and the rotor speed is up to 350rpm; Screens are easily changed by hydraulic operation.
New Jaw To Beat The Credit Crunch
Demolition company Lawson Group Ltd is feeling the crush rather than the crunch as they expanded their range of plant with a Sandvik Qj330 Jaw Crusher. The new machine will be the latest addition to the company's growing fleet of machinery, as the company look to move forward in the current climate.
The Sandvik Qj330 enables the company to increase and improve the levels of recycling from their demolition sites across the country. With features such as a higher crushing speed, together with a larger feed opening to ensure impressive rates of productivity and better reduction rates, this latest purchase is another step in the right direction for Lawson Group as they aim to make demolition a greener process.
