Wastech Engineering recently designed, manufactured and installed a state-of-the-art sorting and shredding facility which processes over 100,000 tonnes of kerbside Garden Organics a year.
The system has also been designed to receive additional Food Organics (FOGO) tonnes when this part of the contract comes online in 2022/23. This was achieved by working closely with our client and key equipment partner the CP Group (based in San Diego, USA). Working closely with the client and CP, Wastech was able to provide a custom designed solution for the Client’s site specific requirements.
Using Wastech’s and CP’s combined expertise, we were able to provide the client with a system that includes; an infeed conveyor complete with a CP drum feeder which liberates the materials to make it easier for the decontamination process, numerous transfer conveyors, a 2 deck CP fines screen with cast chromium discs for maximum performance and life to remove course fines which vastly improves the longevity of the shredder cutters downline, cross belt magnet to extract any ferrous materials, sort cabins for maximum operator comfort and a dual shaft shredder to achieve maximum throughput and performance for both processing and decontaminating the incoming organics material. Another key design consideration was site housekeeping, so with that in mind Wastech’s engineers designed custom built conveyor transfer transitions and belly pans to prevent spillage of material between transfer points.
The system is also proudly maintained by Wastech’s National 24/7 preventative maintenance program and breakdown response service. Wastech’s Field Service technicians proudly maintain the system to maximise throughput and system performance achieving maximum system uptime and minimum system downtime.
