Waste initiatives from CP’s Auger Screen

Wastech Engineering has realised its newest screening technology from its partner – the CP Group – the CP Auger Screen.

The anti-wrapping, non-blinding screen was developed specifically for material recovery facilities.

The trademark CP Auger Screen sizes material by using a series of cantilevered augers that do not wrap or jam due to their corkscrewing motion, making it highly low maintenance.

Any material that could wrap, such as hoses or plastic film, are released off the end of the auger.

Its low-wear augers are made from abrasion-resistant steel, making them durable while requiring little to no maintenance.

The CP Auger Screen can be used in various recycling applications, including municipal solid, commingled, construction and demolition and commercial and industrial wastes. The largest model can handle 32 tonnes per hour of inbound single stream material, 54 tonnes per hour of commercial and 73 tonnes per hour for construction and demolition material.

The machine is unique compared to traditional disc screens as the auger rotors act like a corkscrew, conveying any stringy materials over the side. The cantilevered augers convey large flat materials over, while fines and flexible fibre go through to under the machine and the remainder goes to the side.

Machine guidance with remote support: Position Partners

Position Partners offers a unique machine guidance technology and services package specifically designed to increase productivity in landfill applications.

It stands apart in two important ways. Firstly, the machine guidance technology has been specifically designed for the waste management sector, not the construction industry, and secondly, the company can assist with a complete support, reporting and data management package to optimise return on investment.

Carlson LandfillGrade combines hardware for the compactor, namely a precision Global Positioning Systems unit for the roof of the machine, a control box for the operator in the cab and a range of sensors, along with software that delivers a wide range of reporting capabilities.

To eliminate the need to upskill or hire additional staff, Position Partners now offers comprehensive data management, reporting and remote troubleshooting services. This managed service is designed to save time and maximise productivity by maintaining data integrity, generating and distributing reports and hosting the data on a client’s behalf.

“Our landfill solutions aim to help operators manage their sites more efficiently by delivering relevant information on their site operations without any additional workload for them or their team,” said Andrew Granger, Position Partners Business Development Manager.

“If operators experience any technical problems or the system needs new software, we can handle this remotely via our support hubs throughout Australia, without the customer having to wait for support to arrive on site.”

Disposing of NDD waste: CDEnviro

Disposing of non-destructive digging (NDD) or hydro excavation waste can incur high disposal costs due to its solid/liquid state and weight.

As regulators tighten transport restrictions off the back of an increasing need for urban recycling solutions, the payload per truck may be reduced.

CDEnviro aim to provide efficient dewatering solutions for NDD waste to reduce landfill disposal costs. Its solutions recover up to 85 per cent of water and sand which would have otherwise been sent to landfill. The recovered sand can be reused or provide an additional source of revenue. The end result leads to greater sustainability, reduced disposal costs, a secure method of processing and less business time and money spent on transportation.

One product designed to deal with this difficult waste is the G:MAX. G:MAX uses vibrating platform screen technology in a dual stage washing and recycling system for any solid/liquid mixture that requires classification or dewatering. It removes the particles that cause wear, efficiently removing grit, thus maximising product yield and minimising waste volumes. The recovered grit can be used to offset virgin resource extraction.

The G:MAX aims to boost efficiency through PU splash guards, rubber spring mounts and the ability to continuously process the incoming waste. Guards maximise material and water retention, resulting in a safer and more efficient site. The technology can also be used with other primary, secondary and tertiary water treatment solutions to reduce any necessary contaminants.

POLYSTAR film recycling line

POLYSTAR’s Repro-Flex was designed for reprocessing polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed.

As the exclusive distributor for POLYSTAR equipment, Applied Machinery can offer a compete film recycling line designed to produce pellets that are ready to insert back into the start of the manufacturing process, while at the same time dramatically cut on film waste that was previously destined for landfill.

POLYSTAR has worked with plastics producers across the globe and is used in more than 102 countries worldwide. The cutter integrated pelletising system eliminates the need for pre-cutting materials, taking up minimal space, while producing plastic pellets at a productive rate. The machine aims to have an output that is 20 per cent higher when compared to traditional feeding methods, with 10 per cent less power consumption. By being able to reprocess plastic materials themselves, producers can reduce their own production costs.

The extruder specialises in post-industrial waste, with blown and cast film producers (HDPE, PP shrink, stretch film), raffia and woven (PP woven bags, non-woven, jumbo bags) and rigid regrind (bottles, pipes, containers) just a few materials that can be reprocessed. A filtration system aims to reduce machine downtime.

The machine offers multiple degassing and filter options, including triple degassing to remove ink and extra humidity from the material, a dosing device for colour masterbatches  and compounds added during the process, filter re-positioning prior to degassing for higher quality pellets and an unvented extruder to ensure minimal change in material property and a higher output.

POLYSTAR’S recycling line also offers a range of other solutions, including the two-stage HNT-VS for heavy printed material, the air-cooled RP120 for PE in-house waste and the TR-B for pre-washed film flakes and a range of other materials.

IVECO provides a complete refuse collection solution

While the venerable ACCO might be the most recognised truck in the waste collection industry due to its long history, proven durability and fit-for-purpose construction, it’s by no means the only model IVECO earning a keep in this demanding industry.

Locally-made Stralis models are also on the scene, successfully tackling a range of hooklift bin applications, providing operators with a modern and efficient 6×4 and 8×4 platform. As with the ACCO, being built in Melbourne, the Stralis can be customised along the assembly line, providing faster and more efficient body fitment and delivery to customers. Depending on the model selected, the scope for modification can be made considerable.

To achieve the desired end outcome, IVECO’s local engineering and manufacturing teams work closely with the customer and bodybuilder in specifying and manufacturing the vehicle, and there’s also the opportunity for all involved to visit the manufacturing facility to view progress on the build.

As well as targeting traditional waste applications like sideloader and front lift compactors and hook lift work, IVECO has an eye on the future with its development of a smaller compactor models based on the 12 to 16 tonne Eurocargo range.

A shift towards apartment and townhouse living as well as a rise in gated communities such as retirement villages, means that larger, more traditional refuse collection vehicles can struggling with this more confined infrastructure.

With this in mind, IVECO has developed a dual control cab chassis that can accommodate a 14-cubic metre compactor body providing up to five tonnes of payload. Featuring a shortened wheelbase, the Eurocargo compactor is extremely manoeuvrable and has a lower tare weight which allows it better access to tighter private access roads that have gross vehicle mass restrictions.
