Plastic Omnium’s new generation two wheel bins, shown at its stand, aims to be quieter and more environmentally friendly. A combination of new options - lid, body, axle, wheels - reduces the noise up to 14 dB. Wheels made from used tyres are recyclable and the lid and body of the bin are 100% recycled, made from old bins.
Sulo’s underground systems includes the new Sulo Iceberg Neo model. This has smart options including fill level, access control, noise reduction and foot pedal. Meanwhile, Sulo’s new Aerosol bin is an UN-approved container designed for collecting empty and partially empty spray cans. Made of injection-moulded HDPE, the bin has a normal volume of 1,100l and comes with or without a rubber grommet fitted opening to drop cans in the lid. It is delivered with a triangle locking system. Good ventilation is ensured thanks to slots on the front, rear and sides, and optional opening on top.
Biogas plant manufacturer Weltec Biopower (UK), based at Stoneleigh, will be showcasing its range of AD technologies. It has built more than 300 plants worldwide, with 11 in the UK, its latest project being a 500kW AD facility for vegetable producer Gilfresh in Northern Ireland.
Dr Kevin Monson, sales manager, says: “There are plenty of feedstocks that can be used for the production of energy. We have clients that work with biowaste and food leftovers, expired packaged food, slaughterhouse residues or dairy byproducts. Every plant needs a special technical layout, starting with the right input technology.”
Machinex Group will be introducing its new optical sorting machine, the Mach Hyspec.
Using a technologymade more efficient by a high speed, short wave infra-red (SWIR) hyperspectral detection system, the Mach Hyspec was developed by a specialised work cell of the Machinex research & development department. The different models available can detect different material types, such as plastics (such as PET, HDPE, PVC, LDPE, PP PS), and also fibre products, including carton container detection, wood product recognition, and wood by grade. The optical sorter can also have the option of color recognition and a metal detector. The machine can be used in different types of material recovery facilities, such as single-stream, construction & demolition, municipal solid waste, and other applications. Other features include its high speed detection system, higher depth field detection of 430 mm on the belt, no moving parts used in the optical and detection system, and reduced risk of fire due to a patent-pending light system technology.
On Lefort’s stand will be the new Conkest 300T non- ferrous metal shear/baler – shown for the first time anywhere in the world. Also on its stand will be the portable model of the new Conkest 600T ferrous metal shear/baler.
The Conkest 300T is primarily designed for processing non- ferrous metals, making light work of shearing all non-ferrous and some ferrous metals. It is under 11 metres in length. Each machine features a 4,600mm length box, a 300T cutting force with a 680mm wide cut and produces bales 680 x 500 mm x variable length. It has a diesel or electric power unit and remote control, making it ideal for many applications.
The new Conkest 600T on display will be the portable version with hydraulic legs for self loading from a transport vehicle, although mobile and static versions of this machine are also available. The 600T has a box length of 6000mm, a 600T cutting force with an 800mm wide cut and produces bales 800 x 600mm x variable length. With hydraulic legs, the machine is semi-permanent and can easily be moved around the yard of from site to site.
Sensor-based sorting specialists, Tomra Sorting Recycling, will be sponsoring the coffee lounge in Hall 4 at the show.
A team of Tomra’s experts – Steve Almond, Stuart Tilney, Brian Gist and Gavin Russell – will be on hand throughout the event to bring visitors up to speed on the latest developments in its technology, to answer any questions and highlight some of the company’s current projects across a number of material segments, from plastics and metals, to C&I and MSW.
Steve Almond, sales engineer for Tomra Sorting Recycling, said: “This year, rather than booking a traditional stand, we decided to take a different approach. RWM presents an excellent opportunity to network and exchange ideas so we want the Tomra coffee lounge to provide an informal hub where industry colleagues can grab a comfortable seat, discuss the issues and challenges they face in their own businesses and exchange ideas.”
