Making the most of your MRF is hot topic says Axion

Axion Consulting has hosted its first seminar on how to ‘make the most of your MRF’ and said it was such a success that more will follow.

Regular maintenance and correct feed preparation for MRFs were two areas highlighted at a Birmingham seminar attended by around 90 delegates.

The seminar included practical advice and information from technology experts on their specialist areas of expertise.

Issues discussed included optimising sorting and segregation technologies; the ‘minefield’ of legislative, planning and compliance issues; how to make the best use of modern sensor-based sorting technologies and the need for statistically meaningful samples when measuring MRF performance.

Axion Director Roger Morton said: “Positive feedback suggests the sector is obviously interested in developments in cutting-edge technology and that delegates benefited from the identification of issues, as well as the networking opportunities with their peers and equipment suppliers.

“Modern MRFs are highly-sophisticated and profitable processing businesses, so improving design and optimising performance to suit the operator’s in-feed materials, working patterns and ultimately, the end markets, is crucial to extract highest quality outputs and efficiencies.”

Delegates had the opportunity to network as well as talk to machinery exhibitors including Acta Recycling, Dela, IFE Aufberietungstechnik, Ken Mills Engineering, Stadler, S & S Inspection, TITECH and NESTRO Lufttechnik.
