Sorting of waste streams has a great impact on the environment. Thorough sorting can reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and/or incinerators considerably. By turning waste into recyclable products, money can be saved; the amortisation of Material Recycling Facility (MRF) depends on the costs for landfill and/or incineration.
The sorting lines for demolition and construction waste can produce reusable materials like wood, metals, RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel), soil, aggregates.
Aggregates can be reused as a foundation material in road constructions, as a gravel substitute in concrete or as a trenchfill material. Soil can be used in noise protection walls, as fill-material or for road construction. High calorific materials like plastic and paper can be turned into RDF.
A sorting line mostly consists of a deposit hopper, sizing equipment (screens), separating equipment (separators), cleaning equipment with the help of air (windshifters) or water (washers), sorting cabins and conveyor systems. Furthermore the line can be equipped with crushers, shredders, presses, balers and grey water systems. The treated grey water can be used for dust suppression systems, spraying systems for incoming loads and wheel washers.
There is no standard sorting line, since no waste flow or site is the same. That is why we will analyse the waste flow by amongst others making a mass-volume balance. Furthermore a lay-out of the line is made. After that, we will check in close co-operation with the customer if the chosen set-up is agreed upon. Next a detailed design is made. For all projects an experienced project manager is appointed to supervise production, installation and start-up.
We offer a wide range of mobile and semi-mobile separation units. The mobile units can be delivered on trailers or on tracks.
The deposit hoppers are designed to continuously and steadily feed various kinds of material. They fead materials like construction and demolition waste, industrial and commercial waste, household waste, organic waste, compost, dry recyclables etc.
We offer various kinds of systems which are suitable for the treatment of organic waste and compost. The windshifters, for example, can be applied to separate plastics and other small contaminations out of the organic fraction
The concrete reclaimer is a compact system that washes, separates and dewaters rest concrete and discharges the sand and aggregate separately. Our concrete reclaimer system guarantees a perfect sand and aggregate purification effect with less than 0,5% remaining cement.
Overband magnets are designed for use over a moving bed of material from which iron is to be removed. The inclined sorting machine is designed to sort almost any combination of recyclable materials automatically.
Sorting cabins are used to separate different fractions like wood, ferrous, non-ferrous and plastics manually. It consists of picking belts and drop hoppers.
The drum washers are designed to clean gravel and aggregates and to separate the floating dirt with a contamination level of approx. 10-20%.
The windshifter can be applied for al dry waste types. The windshifter separates the input material based on density and form. The unique feature of the windshifter is its flexibility because of the many settings.
Mechanical sizing of waste flows can be executed with various screens. Mesh-sizes vary from 4 to 500 mm. Large parts are usually first processed by crushers or shredders, separated manually or simply broken by a grab.
The conveyors ensure that the sorting equipment is fed with the right material, speed and spread. The construction is such, that even the finest material does not clog the conveyor. The risk of misalignment is therefore reduced to a minumun.
