New Trident from Buffalo Turbine provides triple-coverage dust control
Buffalo Turbine has introduced the Trident dust control solution. This system uses three separate turbines all powered by the same Kohler 74 horsepower diesel engine, capable of three times the coverage area compared to single turbine dust controllers. Different from other dust control units on the market, this unit is self-contained, meaning no generator is required, less maintenance costs, and less space required for setup.
According to Buffalo Turbine, each of the three turbines on the new Trident model uses their Gyratory Atomizing Nozzle technology, which does not clog like conventional nozzle tips. The Trident is available with one, two or three oscillation kits to match desired coverage in a wide range of applications, including composting and organics recycling, solid waste, C&D and scrap metal.
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.
