Northern Irish company Waste Systems, based in Plumbridge, has signed a multi-million pound distribution deal with processing equipment supplier EPS for its Proflow DST system.
Waste Systems’ managing director Nishi Ward confirmed that, following six years of investment in R&D, the deal represented the firm’s first major production order, with multiple machines supplied to EPS a month.
Proflow DST offers a variable speed feeder conveyor, with each deck having special vibrations to eliminate blockages. A 3ft x 5ft top deck uses scalping screen mesh, while the 16ft x 5ft bottom flip-flop screen uses Vulkollan mats.
The air displacement unit has a fully adjustable separation drum, which contains a heavies stockpile conveyor and a lights discharge conveyor. The DTS also includes an air knife and cyclonic air chamber for separation of materials in suspension.
John Dunne, EPS managing director, said: “Proflow DST represents a revolutionary combination of processing actions in one modular unit. It’s something that we’ve never seen before, and en- ables the diversion of valuable waste streams from landfill.”
