Eriez Europe is to show a new Eddy Current Separator (ECS), the NG-24 ECS. This is suitable for multiple applications and features a cantilevered design, which allows for the ECS belt to be changed in 10 minutes by maintenance staff. Visitors are encouraged to bring sample materials to the show to see the separation performance.
Also on show will be the ST22-40 ECS for separation of smaller sized particles (PET flake) and the EZ Tec 9100 metal detector, for the removal of metal contaminants from granulated plastics. Visitors can also see the Eriez Metal Loss Monitor, which is fitted to conveyors to track and measure the amount of metals lost to a waste stream over specific periods of time.
The company recently launched its Recycling Test Centre at its European headquarters in South Wales. This allows customers to visit with bulk samples of material, helping to determine which combination of machinery is the best fit.
Gareth Meese, sales director at Eriez Europe says: “We’re looking forward to the show, where the team will be on hand to advise the most effective solutions for removing metal contamination.”
Innovative Safety Systems (ISS) is back at RWM with its product range including Cyclear, the cyclist safety warning system which has been fitted to all 117 of Serco’s refuse collection vehicles that operate within the M25.
The Cyclear system comprises an illuminated sign and speaker to alert cyclists and vulnerable road users when a vehicle is turning left. An optional sequencing sensor alerts the driver when a cyclist or pedestrian is approaching and filters out the false alarms. Vehicle operators can use one or both elements of Cyclear.
Gavin Thoday, managing director, ISS said: “Cyclear took four years to research and develop and that investment is now paying off as it has become firmly established as the cyclist safety system of choice amongst local authorities and the private sector. Soon we will be launching our next game-changing product that will undoubtedly challenge the current approach towards HGV reversing. In fact we believe it has the capacity to change the way we reverse forever so watch this space.”
The ISS product portfolio includes reverse camera systems, LED vehicle lighting, reverse radar systems, hard disk recording (DVR) and LANlink that enables vehicle operators to download recorded footage remotely and automatically by WiFi, as each vehicle returns to the depot.
Dolav will be showing its range of plastic pallet boxes which come in height and length choices to suit customers’ applications. Its new tall Dolavs are up to 1,400mm high, ideal for lightweight and bulky materials such as plastics and cardboard. Due to its strength, it can also handle bulkier, heavier loads.
Its ‘long box’, a 1,870mm long Dolav Ace is suitable for products like 6ft long fluorescent tubes for recycling. It stacks with or without a lid while awaiting emptying cycles.
While the Sealed Ace – a sealed version of the Dolav Ace - has a double, screwed-down lid for long-term storage of sensitive or LLW materials. It is designed to prevent intrusion of humidity into waste.
Worsley Plant, supplier of equipment for separating, reducing and screening waste will be showing what is achievable with its range. The Max X Tract and Flex X Tract Density Separators are specifically designed to process waste down to the smallest possible size to reduce landfill tax. The machines can separate out material of value to generate extra revenue while reducing the volume disposed of in landfill.
Worsley Plant will also be showcasing its range of hydraulic attachments, all ideal for use in the waste and recycling industries. These include crushing and screening buckets from REMU and MB, as well as sorting grabs from Rotar, and its newest product addition – the Lehnhoff Variolock Quickcoupler System, which allows you to change your excavator attachments within seconds from the comfort of the cab.
The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) is hosting a ‘meet the investor’ event at RWM, presenting developers with the opportunity to discuss their projects with its investment team, subject to a short application form being submitted in early September.
GIB is specifically interested in projects that require between £5m-£50m of funding for capital investment in infrastructure that will help increase UK recycling rates.
Chris Holmes, managing director of Waste and Bioenergy at the GIB, said: “The first barrier many developers of recycling projects face when raising finance can be securing open and honest feedback from an experienced investor. Our event is designed to provide them with exactly that.”
GIB is welcoming approaches from any UK waste material stream, from alloys to aggregates to high-grade office paper to low-grade mixed plastics, provided:
- The project is based on proven technology (i.e. not a first-of-its-kind, venture capital investment)
- The project is at a stage of development where it is ready to start conversations with external investors
- The project is based in the UK.
Craemer UK’s stand will offer information on its full product range, including the MGBneo range of wheeled bins. These are offer significant saving opportunities in storage and logistics as well as improved design features. In addition, Craemer UK will exhibit a new split-bin, multi-factor collection system which is currently being implemented in Denmark.
