In an effort to improve its compost output, Australian Native Landscapes purchased a new windrow turner which can handle larger piles.
To help operators reduce costs, TANA has released a series of compactors which have been purpose-built for landfills.
The TANA E Series compactor was designed to maximise uptime and provide landfill operators with efficiencies to invest in other critical areas of the business.
The TANA design uses a twin drum, rigid frame and crushing teeth to compact materials with fewer passes. The rigid frame provides up to 100 per cent greater crushing force on a single drum when compacted to an oscillating four-wheeler of a similar weight.
The wide and level blade allows for an even level swing and traction is supported by no slipping or sinking wheels. The crushing teeth are made of solid steel and 200 millimetres in height, while providing up to 28 footprints per square metre and maximum kneading effect of waste.
Its TANA Control system improves driveability with a user-friendly interface with a simple operating menu and four-colour display. The monitoring system of the system helps the operator determine any faults and prevent damage from occurring.
The combination of fewer passes and better compaction allows operators to manage their waste in a more efficient way.
The T70 trommel screen is the most powerful, mobile trommel screening machine in the Terra Select product line. It achieves screening capacities of up to 250 cubic metres per hour using an efficient screening surface of about 46 square metres.
The machine processes often challenging heavy screening materials with ease, such as wet compost, with a trommel length of 7.5 metres and a diameter of 2.2 metres. The long screening drum is suitable for screening any type of waste.
The German engineered T70 trommel screen has been designed with many innovative features, including the ability to reverse the trommel drum without any problems for convenient cleaning and maintenance. All conveyor rollers are equipped with screwable flanges for easy maintenance, meaning that in the event of any bearing damage, a change of conveyor rollers is not needed.
All Terra Select machines are robust and reliable. GCM Enviro is the sole distributor of Terra Select and Eggersmann machinery in Australia.
GCM Enviro’s technology has helped the Knox Transfer Station significantly boost its efficiencies with a cost-effective trommel screen.
GCM Enviro’s Eggersmann – BACKHUS CON combines the proven BACKHUS turning technology with the flexible CONVAERO system, allowing for efficient turning in lanes for composting and biological drying of municipal solid waste and organic wastes, digestate and sewage sludge.
The turner is equipped with a crawler chassis used to run along the lane walls while turning within the walls. BACKHUS CON is equipped with two membrane winders that simultaneously wind and unwind the membranes during the turning process. This ensures a virtually closed system even during turning.
The Eggersmann is available with lane widths of 6, 7.5 and 10 metres.
The machine is ideal for municipal solid waste in composting/biological drying, green waste and organics via composting and sewage sludge and digestate through composting and biological drying.
The system is made flexible to cope with a variety of input materials and characteristics, while using a modular design to help operators expand their sites with minimal interruptions. Input material with high moisture content up to 70 per cent can be processed with this solution.
Press water, surface water and roof water from membrane covers can be collected separately. BACKHUS Turner serves also as a mixer for sludge with organic waste or other feedstocks.
There’s also very little infrastructure required, with one power point allowing the system to operate. All equipment operates underground, improving safety and reducing any weather impact.
