The future of waste management lies in improved resource recovery and reuse of organic material. North-West Recycling Centre’s David Murphy explains.
Reduced maintenance, time and expenses remain high priorities for leading international technology supplier Komptech, which is providing a point of market differentiation through its Nemus drum screen.
Contrary to competitor products, the Nemus leverages an open engine compartment accessible from all sides – adding an extra layer of safety for on-site material management. The engine unit is also hydraulically extendable allowing for streamlined oil checks.
With maintenance made easy, the side wall can be folded separately or together with the drum for further changes and cleaning.
The Nemus Maxx Primus drum screens by Komptech were designed for a variety of applications, including compost, wood/biomass, soil/gravel and shredded bulk, household, residual and refuse-derived fuels.
Controllable hopper and drum rotation speeds support precise material alignment. Drum overfilling is prevented by a load-dependent hopper control to support compost processing.
Komptech drum screens effectively process high-bulk materials such as wood/biomass through a feed hopper tailored to the drum size.
When it comes to processing excavated material such as sand, gravel and lightweight building rubble, Komptech has a solution for heavy materials. Solid contraries are kept back by a hinged hopper pre-screen and a hopper belt controller that prevents skewing on the belt.
In processing shredded, household, residual waste and RDF, the machine creates ample space between screen drums and side walls for a smooth operation.
Komptech also has a cellular application called “Connect!” which reports events and diagnosis codes, in addition to data on operating hours, fuel consumption and idle time by mobile radio to a central data sever.
