Shredders offer iltimate solutions in tackling wide variety of waste
Bin Systems Ltd, manufacturer of bin washing, lifting and tippling devices used in industry and by NHS trusts, expanded its product portfolio with the launch of a range of industrial shredders in April this year. The company now runs the UK shredder agency for the waste industry, on behalf of the Italian shredder manufacturer Satrind, which serves markets world-wide.
Shredding can provide a solution for companies, major recyclers or authorities
who need to dispose of large quantities of waste. Bin Systems’ range of industrial
shredders offers heavy-duty units from 10hp to 400hp. Satrind manufactures both
single-, double- and triple-shaft shredders suitable for destroying a wide range
of materials. Bin Systems points out that shredding waste can reduce its volume
by up to 90% and also has considerable environmental and economic advantages
because it enables a smaller volume of waste to be transported to landfill and
for landfill costs to be significantly reduced. Whether a customer needs to
reduce industrial or CA waste, or produce specific particle sizes in order to
prepare materials for any of today’s alternative technological disposal methods,
Bin Systems Ltd states that it can offer an extensive product portfolio to provide
the shredding solution.
Bin Systems Ltd supplies a wide range of two-, three- and four-shaft shredder
models with installed power ranging from 10HP to 400HP. The shredder product
line can deal with a wide variety of materials including municipal solid waste,
car and truck tyres, cardboard and plastic recycling waste, paper and confidential
documents, pallets, metal and plastic drums, rubber, wood and furniture offcuts.
One interesting example of the use of shredding is the application of Satrind
F1015 shredder to shred plastic chemical drums. The machine was supplied by
Bin Systems to the Waste Treatment Division of the Waste Recycling Group, for
its plant at Blackburn Meadows, Sheffield. The F1015 shredder has replaced an
older machine that was already on site.
Waste Recycling Group plc (WRG) is an independently owned British waste management
company, which handles nearly 10 million tonnes of waste per year. The company
processes a wide range of waste types and its major customers include both local
authorities and commercial customers. WRG operates on a national basis, with
its Blackburn Meadows plant one of three in the North of England dealing specifically
with the treatment of liquid waste.
The F1015 shredder supplied by Bin Systems is a twin-shaft model. With its
large hopper capacity and shredding inlet it is suitable for the destruction
of plastic chemical drums, such as those handled by WRG. These drums are reduced
in volume by up to 90% by the shredding process, allowing waste disposal costs
to be minimised. A far smaller quantity of waste now needs to be sent to landfill,
having significant environmental benefits. Loose waste can also be easily containerised,
minimising problems such as waste wind scatter around the site.
The F1015 shredder can also effectively destroy a wide range of other materials,
states Bin Systems, including plastic, rubber, lightweight metal products, catering
waste and confidential documents. The throughput achieved with these products
varies according to the nature of the material, the method of hopper feed, the
length of the cutting chamber and the blade configuration, although waste volumes
can still be reduced by up to 90%, the company adds.
