​New Product Selector from ALLU allows easier matching of Transformer hydraulic attachment to carriers

Matching material with excavator/loading shovel and the right processing attachment can often be a tricky business. In order to simplify a complicated process, ALLU has developed a unique and interactive product selector which enables customers to match their requirement with the most suitable ALLU Transformer. The ALLU Transformer is a hydraulic attachment for wheel loader, excavator, skid steer or similar equipment. The exciting and extensive range has been developed over many years to effectively make material processors' lives easier and more productive.  

The ALLU Transformer means that companies processing soil, sand, rubble and other materials no longer need to bring both a wheel loader/excavator and a crusher on site. Instead, the ALLU Transformer  screens, crushes, pulverizes, aerates, blends, mixes, separates, feeds and loads materials  thereby transforming the materials worked with. 

ALLU technology quite literally transforms everything around it making businesses more productive, more environmentally friendly and more profitable. With versatility at its very core, the ALLU Transformer will process just about anything sent its way. This includes materials including construction debris, topsoil, excavated soil and contaminated soil, to clay, peat, bark, compost, bio-waste, milled asphalt, coal, oil shale and limestone. 

The ALLU Transformer is technology which redefines the way in which a business works. However, matching material and application to the most suitable ALLU Transformer can be a complicated task. There are many parameters to consider such as the size of the excavator/loading shovel, tonnage to be dealt with, required product size and the end use of the transformed material amongst many other factors.

 In order to help you transform your operations we are proud to announce the launch of the New ALLU Product Selector. This, through a portal available on the ALLU website, enables customers to match their base machine to the material they wish to process. When combined with the area of work, this will match the specific application to the most suitable ALLU Transformer.

​Seven steps to effective briquetting in C&D and MRF applications

Briquettes made from a mix of wood, plastic, etc., are generally used in gasifiers.

The following are seven steps in a typical system for shredding and briquetting old pallets and other types of demolition stream waste wood.

  • Storing Raw Material: Old pallets and waste wood from demolition streams needs to be stored out of the elements to keep it dry. Coloured pallets should be sorted out.
  • Shredding: Raw material is fed into a shred­der for size reduction.
  • Sorting: Shredded raw material is conveyed past one of several magnet separators for sorting of nails. An adjustable gap between the transport belt and the vacuum inlet for the hammer mill ensures that nails that have not been sorted out by the magnet separator will fall down and not be sucked into the hammer mill.
  • Hammermill: The raw material passes through a hammermill before going into a large storage silo.
  • Storing processed material: A large storage silo is used to contain shredded and milled raw material. In a 400-cubic metre silo, at the bottom of the silo there is room for two briquetting presses.
  • Briquetting: From manufacturer, C.F. Nielsen, two model BP5500 briquetters, positioned in the silo, will produce a total of approx. 2.5 tons of briquettes per hour. The presses can run unmanned around the clock in a silo that is 400 cubic metres in size.
  • Briquette storage: Briquettes are placed in a pile coming directly from the briquetting presses via the cooling lines. Briquettes allow for maximum bulk density, for storage, handling and transport.

Chinese guidelines updated for scrap exporters

Chinese guidelines updated for scrap exporters

According to a member-update from the Canadian Association of Recycling Industries (CARI) China's Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), has provided new guidelines for exporters and suppliers who are applying for export permits to ship scrap into China.  These changes will come into effect on February 1st, 2018.   The new guidelines include a few key changes:  

  1. Applicants must follow China's environmental control standards by complying with their contaminants thresholds.
  1. Exporters' facilities must have radiation detection equipment.
  1. The China Certification and Inspection Group (CCIC) will no longer be the sole approved pre-shipment inspection company. Third-party companies may apply to receive a licence from AQSIQ to conduct pre-shipment inspections. These companies will share the liability if material approved before shipping is rejected once it reaches a Chinese port.
