IFAT highlights include MOBA UHF identification of waste bins and containers; Eriez separation technology; Hugo Vogelsang’s focus on waste food recycling and disposal; decanter protection for downstream systems from CDEnviro; while KSB showcases a range of water transport and treatment pumps.
‘Pay as you throw’ with MOBA
MOBA will demonstrate its new UHF (ultra high frequency) identification of waste bins and containers that are effective via an antenna. MOBA says this means hand terminals are no longer needed, which should speed up collections and reduce expenditure on additional peripheral devices.
The system enables operation of a ‘pay as you throw’ principle. Other highlights include MOBA’s data management system, and its MAWIS GPS identification system in combination with the company’s new web solution for showing the visual route or tracking of the vehicle.
Separation technology with Eriez
Eriez boasts that its new RevX-E eddy current separator achieves much greater separation of valuable non-ferrous metals offering a higher recovery of valuable materials, less waste to landfill, plus a higher grade metal end product. Both the RevX-E ST2 (for materials typically between 25mm and 150mm in diameter) and the ST22 (for fines smaller than 25mm) will be on show. Eriez encourages attendees to bring a sample to separate.
Also showcased – through video - will be Eriez’s new ballistic separator, the Shred1, which uses a high speed conveyor belt to create two streams of ferrous material – a high grade low-copper ferrous product and a typical mixed metal shred.
Also on show will be Eriez’s TP20/80 self-cleaning overband magnets, routinely used to remove ferrous items from conveyed material.
Other highlights include Eriez’s Prograde magnetic drum, which enables the removal of large ferrous material from conveyor belt. The EZTEC 9100 metal separation station that separates ferrous and non-ferrous particle flakes while the MA3500 metal detector is part of Eriez’s Metalarm range and is used for machinery protection and quality control.
Hugo Vogelsang focuses on waste food recycling and disposal
Specialist in pumping and maceration, Hugo Vogelsang Maschinenbau will focus its show efforts on applications in the recycling and disposal, especially food, sectors. On display will be the Vogelsang rotary lobe pumps designed for sturdiness and ease of maintenance, offering easy priming and dry running protection. These are particularly suitable for the special requirements of the food and waste disposal industry for gentle and disruption-free pumping of raw materials, such as oil, as well as of dairy and sugar products, or fruit and vegetables. The sturdy XRipper twin-shaft macerator is also suitable for reliable maceration of large volumes of solid matter, such as vegetables, condemned material (meat, offal) and packaging units.
Vogelsang will also be showcasing two expanded models of the XRipper twin-shaft macerator developed to macerate coarse matter in wastewater disposal applications. The XRipper XRL has a Sewer Integration Kit while themXRipper XRS-QG is ideal for wastewater pipes and in constricted areas. Finally, the compact BioCrack S is designed for the smaller quantities of sludge that arise in small and mid-size wastewater treatment plants.
Decanters focus for CDEnviro
CDEnviro will launch its Pro:Dec system designed to provide protection for downstream systems like decanters, belt presses and filter presses through prior removal of the grit which can cause significant wear and increased cost. Decanters offer a final dewatering process which can handle the variability found in material streams processed by the water treatment, industrial, construction and mining industries. The continuous process provided by decanters can adapt to varying volumes and solids to recover materials, reduce water and waste disposal costs, and recycle water for reuse. The Pro:Dec system will be on display at IFAT 2014 along with an S:MAX Sludge Screen, which the company boasts offers operators enhanced health and safety on site, greater operational efficiency, maximum screenings removal and minimal operator intervention. It removes rag and screenings before these materials can impact on downstream processes such as pumps, valves and anaerobic digesters.
Pumping away for KSB
KSB is a supplier of pumps and systems for water transport and treatment, drainage and waste water transport and treatment. At this year’s show it will highlight a new variant of the high-efficiency AmaDS³ waste water pump station, designed for confined spaces. Debuting will be a compact, permanent magnet synchronous drive for six inch submersible borehole pumps. Because this type of motor does not require any current in the rotor to generate torque it reduces heat energy losses and is more efficient.
The latest KSB synchronous reluctance motor SuPremE will also be showcased in combination with a best-selling standardised water pump: Etanorm. Thanks to its efficient hydraulic system, the type series already meets the EU requirements (ErP Directive) of Commission Regulation 547/2012/EU applicable from 2015. Other highlights include soft-seated butterfly valves from the Isoria and BOAX series. KSB Service will also be displaying its portfolio including traditional maintenance topics, energy efficiency consultancy, retrofitting and reverse engineering services at the stand.
