Tuytel Group counts on Lindner’s mobile shredding technology to process waste wood
The Tuytel Group has been renting out heavy construction machinery as well as offering transport solutions and recycling machines in the Netherlands and across Europe since 1999.
When it comes to machines for processing waste wood, the company relies on Lindner's robust solutions, supplied and supported by Dutch sales partner Van der Spek Vianen B.V.
At the beginning of 2020, a system solution consisting of the Urraco 95DK shredder and a Zeta Star 95DK star screen was added to a fleet that has been home to two mobile twin-shaft shredders of the Urraco 75 series for quite some time. "As a heavy equipment rental company we focus specifically on premium machines from top European brands. We have to offer our clients solutions with maximum reliability and the lowest possible maintenance costs," explains Jan Arie van der Meijden, responsible for Tuytel Group's recycling division.
"When purchasing a new waste wood processing solution, we looked at different technical equipment on the market. In the end we came back to Lindner. Our experiences with our two Urracos have been fantastic, but the sturdy welded cutting system and the exact output size were the deciding factors. With a throughput of approximately 65 metric tons/hour, the shredding unit endures high loads. We do not want our customers to have to retighten or even replace the knives every 80 hours. The Urraco 95DK shredder easily operates 600 to 700 hours without intervention and does so with a clean output and no great anomalies."
Tuytel processes waste wood of the Dutch grades A, B and C, but mainly category B waste wood, such as waste wood that is not contaminated by wood preservatives or organohalogen substances. The company offers its customers the Urraco 95DK as a single-step processing solution for particle sizes of 90% <180 mm. The machine is equipped with Lindner's patented LW cutting system, which was specifically developed for waste wood processing. Furthermore, by using Lindner's Zeta Star 95DK star screen, finer fractions can be produced up to a particle size of P100 according to ISO standard 17225-1. Tuytel also provides the option of renting the machines with an operator.
The majority of the processed waste wood is shipped and ultimately used for energy recovery. "In addition to the precisely defined output, it is extremely important to our clients that the rented solution can also be operated at high productivity. That's where our Lindner machines give us a crucial advantage with their ease of operation and very long maintenance intervals. This means the operator can focus on feeding the machine and the shredder takes care of the rest," says van der Meijden.
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.
