With China’s National Sword putting pressure on plastic recyclers, Applied Machinery has partnered with an Italian company to help recyclers hit contamination targets.
Applied Machinery offers a wide range of size reduction equipment to handle a variety of challenging waste streams and applications, from metal to tyres and cables.
To process metals, Genox’s metal recycling plants handle a variety of metallic waste streams, including light iron scrap, vehicle shells and body panels (end-of-life vehicles), steel drums, white goods, electronic scrap and computer waste.
Genox tyre recycling technology features pre-shredding, recirculation systems, secondary size reductions, steel wire separation, fine granulation, product classifying, textile separation and dust collection.
For a high-volume processing machine, Genox’s cable recycling plants comprise functions which include pre-shredding, steel removal, granulation and copper or aluminium plastic separation.
A wider scope of applications is covered by Genox X Series Twin Shaft Shredders, equipped with powerful drive motors and high torque gearboxes. The robust pre-shredders are ideal for processing large volumes of various waste materials.
The maintenance-friendly-designed machines feature options such as drive motor power and gearing, hydraulic drive, hydraulic force feeder and rotary screens.
High-speed granulation in a single pass can be achieved through GC Series Granulators that are ideal for processing materials such as plastics, rubber, fibres, copper cable and light non-ferrous metals. The machines are characterised by high efficiency, reduced power consumption and low noise and sound proof designs.
Bulky or voluminous materials are handled with the Applied Machinery M Series, characterised by their efficient, high torque and low power consumption design.
With the help of equipment specialists Applied Machinery, Geoff Pilgrim Transport has expanded its business from transport to recycling.
RPM Pipe explains how Applied Machinery helped improved its processing capacity, allowing it to develop a cleaner commercial-grade plastic made entirely of recyclables.
