"In times of constantly increasing landfill taxes coupled with prices for raw material as well as the current insecurity regarding the supply of gas, electricity, mineral oil, coal etc, alternative fuels are more in demand than ever."
"Current economic and environmental conditions require the thermal recycling of waste material of all kinds in many industrial areas. Above all, power and cement plants benefit from using alternative fuels made from waste material instead of conventional raw materials for incineration.
Situated in Rugby, Warwickshire (UK), Cwik Skip is a privately owned company which was founded in 1992. Currently it employs a staff of 39 and the company focuses on Waste Management Services. Cwik Skip possess of 17 trucks, picking lines, trommels, ferrous separation and now a LINDNER Compact Plant processing system for alternative fuels (RDF) - the first of its kind in the UK.
The alternative fuel production line of LINDER is based on the Pre-Shredder JUPITER 1800 and the Secondary Shredder KOMET 2800. With a throughput of approximately 15t/h, the JUPITER 1800 guarantees an output size of less than 200 mm. The pre-shredded material is discharged from below the shredder by a hinged belt conveyor and transported up to an over belt magnet which removes ferrous materials. The separation of ferrous materials primarily serves to protect the downstream final shredder plus it is not a desirable component in the final product.
Furthermore a separating device, known as Eddy current, for the removal of non-ferrous materials is installed. Due to their high quality, the obtained nonferrous materials can be resold.
The material loaded into the final shredder is free of foreign objects (non ferrous metals, stones, glass, etc.) that could cause damage and downtimes to the final shredder. A proper separation is ensured by a LINDNER air classifier, the "Heavy fraction separator". With a throughput of approximately 12t/h, the KOMET 2800 final shredder guarantees a final output material size of less than 30 mm.
A reliable and capable British based service team was also a must for the Cwik Skip management team, MachTech's dedicated and skilled electricians and engineers coupled with remote maintenance access were a deciding factor when the order was signed.
One of the key aspects of this project was the available space for safe and secure operation, MachTech Services along with machinery manufacturer Lindner Recyclingtech and Cwik Skips MD Mark Tailby designed a compact system to suit the available space, the compact system is a complete package designed and installed by MachTech Services and is the first compact system to be operational in Britain and Ireland. The space saving design is a Lindner speciality with upwards of 30 of these plants operational worldwide.
With all the major pieces of equipment and the conveyance system being Lindner manufactured, the tight installation deadlines and the specialist requirements were able to be met with the least possible interruption to the clients busy site."
