CB&E Unveils Revolutionary Jam-Release Technology for Two-Ram Balers

Catawba Baler & Equipment (CB&E) has introduced the market’s only two-ram baler that quickly and safely ejects jammed recycle material from the charge chamber without manually digging out the material. Unlike other baler designs that inconsistently attempt to eject an oversized bale at the wire tier, CB&E’s new Gold Rush Series 12/9 two-ram baler with optional Free Jam technology replaces the “gathering wall” of a conventional baler with a patent pending jam-release system. This gives operators push-button control from the tower over the Free Jam release door to clear jams in a matter of minutes, not days.

“Recycling facilities operating conventional two-ram balers know all-too-well the time and danger associated with manually clearing a jam in the charge chamber,” mentions Mark McDonald, president of CB&E. “Our optional Free Jam system on our Gold Rush Series baler is all about operator safety. It virtually eliminates the need for a person to enter the baler to manually clear a jam. Operating a conventional two-ram baler without push-button jam-release technology is like purchasing a new car today without airbags. ”

Nitrogen Oxides Emissions Significantly Reduced at Waste-to-Energy Facility

Since the beginning of 2015, emissions at the Metro Vancouver Waste-to-Energy Facility have been reduced by 53 per cent due to an updated emission control system, which is the equivalent of removing about 20,000 vehicles from the road.

The trademark technology was developed by Covanta as a retrofit for existing facilities like Metro Vancouver’s, and results in an improved combustion process that minimizes nitrogen oxides that contribute to the formation of ozone in the lower atmosphere and smog. Covanta Burnaby Renewable Energy operates Metro Vancouver’s facility located in Burnaby while their parent company owns or operates 44 other similar facilities worldwide.
