Double-Weave Woven Wire Ideal for High-Impact, Top-Deck C&D Screening

Double-Weave woven wire from Montreal-based Major Wire Industries Limited is constructed of two, side-by-side, lighter-gauge wires to outperform heavy-gauge, single-strand woven wire and perforated punch plate in asphalt, concrete and demolition debris recycle applications. Impact from large chunks of asphalt and concrete material can cause screen breakage with even the heaviest single wire gauges. Woven with two smaller-diameter wires, Double-Weave screen media has lower wear points than larger, single-strand wire; one wire helps preserve the life of the other as it wears. The combined tensile strength of the two finer-gauge wires withstands up to three times greater impact providing up to 40 percent greater wear life than that of one heavy-gauge wire, making Double-Weave ideal for top decks on recycle screens. Compared to perforated punch plate, Double-Weave has far more open area, increases throughput up to 50 percent without costly screen deck alterations and costs up to 25 percent less.

Double-Weave provides up to an additional 40 percent more wear life because it is manufactured with Major Wire’s highly abrasion-resistant OptimumWire high carbon and high manganese content wire. This offers the industry’s best combination of ductility, hardness and tensile strength for the longest-lasting wire available in abrasive concrete and demolition debris recycling applications. It is also available in stainless steel, which helps eliminate blinding when screening sticky recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) material.

The Carton Recycling Misconception

Contrary to the perception of many, cartons used for packaging of foods are recyclable. The paper fibre contained in cartons – which are mainly made from growing forests where trees are replaced by new ones and biodiversity is maintained – is valuable and useful to make a range of goods, including tissue and towelling products, de-inked pulp, as well as building products such as wallboard, sheathing, ceiling tiles and roofing sheet.

The reality is that cartons are a high value material that is recyclable, and cartons represent some of the best fibre that remains readily available in the waste stream.

Advance Disposal Opens Upgraded 50-tph MRF

 At the end of May, Advance Disposal Company, Inc., a privately owned hauler and MRF operator in Southern California, held a grand opening ceremony to mark the reopening of their newly upgraded municipal solid waste MRF.

CP Group worked with Advance Disposal to redesign and retrofit their 21-yearold MRF sorting system, which previously handled 20 tph, so that it is now capable of processing 50 tph. The MRF is also now operating on one extended shift instead of two, due to its increased throughput.

RM V550GO! Unites Several Crushing Processes in One Machine

Rubble Master’s RM V550GO! (shown here at a recent Demo Days in Austria) brings together the technology of a cone crusher and vertical shaft impactor (VSI) with the benefits of the company’s RM GO! technology. This fully mobile plant produces sand from waste material or post-crush processes reject gravel, or hard stone to make recycled aggregate. It is also a very good machine for processing waste aggregate (reject of 8 to 16 mm).

“This crusher is a revolution. It unites two machines in one. Now you only have to invest in one machine instead of what was previously two or three,” says Rubble Master (RM) sales partner Jean-Yves Voghel from Quebec, Canada.

Waste Handlers 101

For purpose-built wheel loaders, commonly referred to in waste and recycling as “waste handlers”, transfer stations and other materials processing facilities are among the most extreme environments that could possibly be encountered. Waste handlers can be outfitted with a number of features and performanceenhancers suited specifically for work in transfer station, landfill, composting and recycling applications, and are compatible with an extensive range of attachments from forks and grapples to buckets with rubber cutting edges. The right machine for each application will depend greatly on the available operating space, the type of material being handled and the operational demands put on the machine. Following are key factors to consider when evaluating waste handlers for waste/recycle applications.
