New labs test SRF for consistent high quality

Axion Polymers has invested in new laboratory and testing facilities to ensure consistent quality of its solid recovered fuel (SRF) products and to satisfy its end markets.

It has installed a lab-scale furnace unit at its Shredder Waste Advanced Processing Plant in Trafford Park, Manchester. It should enhance accurate measurement and testing of the physical and thermal properties of its Axfuel SRF 30, a high-energy fuel.

Axion has also recruited a quality control team working within ISO 9001 operating procedures to conduct in-house product testing, including analysis on aspects such as SRF calorific value and chemical composition. Samples are sent each week to external laboratories for further verification.

Derived from automotive shredder residue, Axfuel SRF 30 is a sub 30mm-sized mixture of textiles, fibre-fluff, plastic, foam and rubber, with a calorific value (gross) of 18-22MJ/kg and available in large tonnages.

Axion director Roger Morton said: “If SRF is to deliver the fuel benefit and meet the demanding specifications of our end markets, it has to be of consistently high quality so that our customers can buy with confidence.”
