Mobile shredding system for alternative fuels and biomass

The new XR3000 mobil-e capitalises on the benefits of an electromechanical drive without having to forgo the advantages of a mobile machine.  

Available through national distributor FOCUS enviro, the machine aims to provide operators with maximum efficiency and flexibility.

Just like all UNTHA XR products, the XR mobil-e is equipped with an energy-efficient UNTHA Eco Drive. This ensures minimal operating costs and maximum material quality.

A key feature of the machine is that it operates only electrically, conversely to energy consuming, and at times, noisy diesel operated alternatives. 

For the shredding process, the XR mobil-e is connected to the power supply with a hands-on quick fastener, allowing the machine to be moved across a variety of indoor and outdoor locations.

Mobility is ensured through a reliable crawler-type undercarriage in combination with a small petrol-powered engine. The XR mobil-e can be easily moved to any spot via remote control. With an extensive range of interchangeable screens and cutters, the shredder can be configured according to the customer’s output specification. 

For example, consistent 30-millimetre or 400-millimetre particle sizes are achievable, as is anything in between. This means the XR mobil-e can shred bulky, municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial, construction and demolition or wood waste with ease. Other applications include industrial waste, scrap wood, plastic bales and more. 

The machine also produces a homogenous alternative fuel to the waste-to-energy, cement, gasification or biomass markets. In addition, a height-adjustable discharge conveyor belt and an optionally available magnetic separator lead to an efficiently operating mobile shredding system.

Genox Shredders from Applied Machinery

Applied Machinery offers a diverse range of Genox shredders to process an array of waste streams down to specific sizes. 

For size reduction of flexible, medium hardness, voluminous products, Genox’s K Series Single Shaft Shredders process various plastics (films, mouldings), paper and cardboard, copper, aluminum, textiles and a range of other applications. The M Series shredder, which performs largely the same functions, is suited to other potentially contaminated materials such as metals or stones.

When it comes to small and medium size reduction, the Genox V Series Single Shaft Shredders are capable of processing a wide range of materials to uniform particle size. Typical applications include plastic, timber/wood, paper and cardboard and copper. 

If operators are looking to process large volumes, then the X Series Twin Shaft Shredders works as an ideal pre-shredder for municipal solid (MSW) and commercial and industrial (C&I) waste, scrap metal, end-of-life vehicles and a range of other applications. Segmented blades greatly reduce blade changing time and cost. 

BH Series Single Shaft Shredders are heavy-duty reduction machines designed to process a variety of untreated waste materials down to coarse or medium-sized fractions. This powerful, wear-resistant machine is suited to demanding recycling tasks and can handle MSW, C&I, construction and demolition and other wastes.

Scania P-series

Scania builds on its history of providing robust urban workhorses suited to the waste industry with the arrival of its next generation P-series.

Available as a prime mover or rigid, in a variety of power train and drive train combinations, the Scania P-series offers high levels of safety, driver comfort and excellent visibility, critical for safe and fuss-free manoeuvring in built-up areas.

The new Scania P-series comes with a range of frugal Euro-6 low emission engines with up to 450 horsepower available, making it suitable for a wide range of tough jobs. The P-series has been a successful front lift or rear-loading waste trucks, as well as being fitted with various hooklift and skip bin systems over the years and has a well-established following within the waste industry. 

The high output six-cylinder engine easily pulls bulk compacted waste bins with high gross combination mass.

In the 2019 NTG P-series, the windscreen is larger, and the A-pillars and door mirror mounts are repositioned, providing far greater visibility at intersections.

As part of the launch of a more spacious, frugal, safer and efficient overall package, Scania is offering a five-year or 500,000-kilometre service inclusive package that provides fully predictable maintenance costs for operators.

And as supplies of the NTG P-series arrive in Australia, a small number of previous generation P-series 8×4 hooklifts remain available. 

Superior Pak partners with SEA-Electric and IVECO

IVECO’s Australia-first ACCO waste truck is powered by battery electric power.

Powering the truck is a SEA-Drive 180 electric driveline featuring 220-kilowatt-hour NMC batteries, which provide the vehicle with a range of approximately 250 kilometres at full gross vehicle mass (up to 23.5 tonnes) along with a limited top speed of 100 kilometres per hour.

The vehicle features a 22-kilowatt-hour on-board charger, allowing the truck to be plugged in and charged from any three-phase power source. Battery charging time from totally flat to full charge is about eight hours.

Battery longevity is calculated at 3500 charge cycles, giving it a life of over 10 years based on a single charge, five days per week. According to IVECO, the remainder of the driveline is virtually maintenance-free.

As an Australian manufacturer, IVECO has the production line flexibility to provide Superior Pak and SEA Electric with a ‘glider’, a complete cab chassis minus the driveline and associated equipment such as exhaust, fuel tanks, traditional battery boxes and related items. 

Volvo L110H and L120H wheel loaders

Volvo L110H and L120H wheel loaders were developed to boost productivity and lower costs for operators. 

Whether it’s the L120H for increased load capacity or the L110H for smaller movements onsite, the machines take advantage of equipment supplier CJD’s authorised partnership with Volvo CE. This is also bolstered by nationwide branches of dealers and service agents.

With low energy consumption, ease of use and durability, the machines leverage Volvo’s 180 years of experience as a leading construction equipment provider.

The machine’s unique OptiShift technology works to reduce fuel consumption by up to 18 per cent and increase machine performance. A reverse by braking function senses the loader’s direction and slows the machine when the operator needs to change direction. It does so by reducing engine revolutions and applying service brakes automatically, while increasing operator comfort and reducing stress on the drive train.

Productivity, reliability and power is delivered by a premium Volvo Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine, which meets emissions regulations and offers high performance and low fuel consumption. 

A spacious, safe and quiet environment unlocks productivity with all-round visibility and a comfortable seat. Within the cab is twin level control for ease of operation, an information panel with vital information such as fuel levels and warnings and safe access via a three-point access ladder with anti-slip steps.

For an ergonomic operator environment, the machine offers a large automotive design cab with a wide access door. The intuitive control and instrument layout applies single-lever joystick controls, a seven-speed fan heater with air-conditioning and a cab or canopy option to suit the environment. 

Safety is supported by a patented Adaptive Load Control, reversing alarm, hose burst check valves on boom lifting cyclinders, an optional load guard on JCB Q-fit carriage and a range of other features. Livelink telematics comes as standard to further increase security with effective fleet management.

For serviceability, all daily checks and grease points are easily located at ground level on the JCB 525-60 telehandler. Because the 525-60 telehandler’s wear pads use a dry lubricant system, they only need servicing every 500 hours.

MAC/2 Balers for higher density

Two years after launching its first model of the MAC/2 generation, MACPRESSE, a leading manufacturer of bale presses from Italy, added the MAC107/2 to the MAC/2 series.  

Through the MAC110/2, MAC108/2 and MAC107/2, the Italian manufacturer has made numerous improvements to the well-performing MAC/1 series. The MAC107/2, in particular, is designed for medium production capabilities at a low cost.

According to Australian distributor CEMAC technologies, the previous MAC/1 series was widely acclaimed by MACPRESS customers across the globe due to its high capability, reliability and low energy consumption. Building on this reputation, the MAC/2 series makes these machines more efficient and easier to use and allows for considerable output improvements. 

A range of features ensure this success, including enhanced hydraulics boosting the output of the machines, while the high efficiency IE3 electric motors achieves up to 30 per cent energy saving. 

At the same time, the XL channel design with 1.5-metre extension allows for considerably better backpressure. For these reasons, the MAC107/2 provides up to 30 per cent higher densities for cardboard and 15 per cent for plastics. 

The enhanced main cylinder mounting, redesigned bale cutting system and better maintenance accessibility considerably improve the service life of the machine. Larger hopper dimensions and revised counter pressure cylinders are other areas where the machine has been significantly improved.  

At the same time, MACPRESSE maintained their design advantages for all machines with boltable Hardox protection on all wear surfaces.

Brentwood LS50CF separation plant

The Brentwood LS50CF recovers food or liquids, steel and packaging from rejected canned or packaged foods.

The company has combined several of its technologies to arrive at a solution that recovers 95 per cent of the can contents with zero steel contamination and cleans the steel cans ready for sale as clean steel scrap. The packaging is also collected.

Materials are loaded onto an infeed hopper which transfers them on a feed conveyor into a Brentwood AZ50HD shredder where the steel cans are shredded, releasing most of the contents. The shredded material is then fed through a specially designed Food Separation Screw Feeder equipped with high-pressure water sprays allowing the food or liquids to be separated from the cans. A series of magnetic separation systems work to remove any small steel items and discharge these to a suitable container.

The large steel content is processed further to separate non-ferrous materials, paper or plastics that are diverted to a separate collection bin. The clean steel is sent on a discharge conveyor and delivered to a scrap bin. 

Highlights of the technology include the Brentwood designed and manufactured Dual Shaft Shredder featuring high torque and slow speed cutting action for low maintenance costs. The shredder also has hexagonal shafts for superior strength and endurance. The plant itself has a production rate of up to 40 tonnes per hour with steel recovery of up to four tonnes per hour.

Baler PC24 HD Galvanized

The heavy-duty Baler PC24 HD Galvanized is designed to handle difficult recyclables such as aluminum cans and PET bottles. It’s capable of processing recyclable types such as aluminium and tin cans, plastic bottles, expanded polystyrene, hard plastics and textiles.

Available through Australian distributor, Wastech Engineering, the galvanised vertical baler uses a one-step process for baling and draining of plastic bottles and aluminium cans, with a built-in reservoir to capture residual liquids.

One of the highlights of the Danish supplied Bramidan technology is the high press force of 24 tonnes that produces extremely dense bales. For example, aluminum cans are baled so dense that they don’t need to be tied off.

Bale weights of up to 55 kilograms for aluminium cans and 105 kilograms for plastic items can be achieved.

The flap door also allows easy loading of materials into a completely closed chamber. An option for a regular painted model instead of galvanised is available.

In terms of noise, the baler boasts a low reading of about 62 to 64 decibels. According to Wastech Engineering, this is impressive when compared to the decibel reading of a refrigerator – on average 50 decibels.
