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.
