21 series turners new for 2011

For 2011, BACKHUS is releasing their 21 series of compost turners, which includes numerous options for efficient processing, such as the BACKHUS Track Control system. This option automatically controls the optimal feed rate for a predetermined amount, so that the addition of admixtures during each turning operation is set at exactly the same amount.   The new 21 series also includes the BACKHUS Management System, which keeps the six-cylinder engines running at the lowest consumption rate, as well as an enclosure unit, cover winder and track clearers. Various wheel and rotor options will also be available.

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
