From Two to One - The New Stone and Light Material Separator from Komptech

The new Komptech Hurrifex puts a stone separator and wind sifter into a single machine. Stones, inert and light items can now be removed from a wide variety of material streams in a single work step with a high degree of separation and very economically.

Turning waste into recyclables - that’s the credo of the waste business. But sometimes it’s easier said than done. Effectiveness is often limited by inadequate technology and high costs, making the whole process uneconomical. For years, Komptech’s research focus has been on the development of work-ready machines that deploy many different separation methods to open up completely new possibilities.

Terex Launches New Terex Fuchs Telematics System for Material Handlers to Help Reduce Cost of Ownership

Terex has introduced a new telematics system for all Terex Fuchs E- or F-Series material handlers. The satellite reporting system ties directly into the material handler’s dedicated CAN Bus system, and its 32-bit processor quickly delivers critical machine operating data, such as operating hours, fuel level and consumption, handler location, service events, and maintenance notifications, to designated personnel. By providing critical operating data, this new telematics system helps operations to increase machine operating efficiency and control costs.

The new Terex Fuchs Telematics system can be installed at the factory or in the field and can be easily retrofitted to any existing Terex Fuchs E- or F-Series material handler, if desired. System information and reporting is customizable for individuals or groups of individuals, so only data pertinent to that individual/group will be displayed. For companies with machines at multiple locations, groups of machines at a particular site can be segmented into different views to quickly access specific machine information. The system’s geofence feature offers machine theft protection by allowing the administrator to set handler operating boundaries.

AirTrim Pneumatic Conveying Systems Eliminate Manual Movement of Materials at Recycling Facilities

AirTrim pneumatic conveying systems are an environmentally friendly alternative to open conveyers in the recycling industry.

Pneumatically transferring materials from the collection area to either staging in the baler area or directly onto the baler's conveyor belt eliminates the use of vehicles, carts, drays and other devices to transport cans and plastics. A JUMBO Venturi design maintains sufficient air flow from intake to receiver, providing high throughput for bulky, heavy, and odd sized waste products such as #10 cans, gallon milk jugs, large detergent bottles, and other cumbersome materials. Direct conveying by this induction system reduces sorting time and labor costs. The rugged, energy efficient system provides years of trouble free operation with very low operating costs, while minimal maintenance requirements further enhancing the systems ROI.

​E-Crane makes Galloo Ghent the fastest scrap terminal in the world

Through the windows of their office, Chief Executive Officer Bernard Beyne and Managing Director/CEO Rik Debaere of Galloo Recycling Group look out over their scrap terminal with satisfaction. The large, colourful mounds of scrap sit calmly next to each other. It is an unusual view from an office, but that not a cause for concern. Galloo is, after all, doing very well. No less than 15,000 to 20,000 tons of scrap passes through the terminal in Ghent every day, making it the fastest in the world. At the heart of this success story lays the Belgian company, E-Crane®.

In November 2009, the first E-Crane® was installed at Galloo Recycling Group in Ghent. The installation of this performance E-Crane® meant an immediate, rapid and enormous growth in the handling capacity of the export terminal. Thanks to this first E-Crane®, Galloo can continue to handle the ever-increasing amount of scrap effortlessly, and maintain its undisputed leadership position in the ferrous and non-ferrous metal recycling sector.
