WSM’s redesigned screen moves material up to four times faster
West Salem Machinery's new Super Screener has been redesigned and manufactured for reduced maintenance, increased production, and a longer operating life.
New features include longer machine life due to a 15 percent lighter basket and increased durability with oversized hangers. Material moves up to four times faster due to the steep slope and stainless steel pan bottom - ideal for wet materials like compost and bark mulch.
The relocated drive allows for an unobstructed flow of material. Optional features include wire mesh or perforated screens, a ball deck for increased material agitation to help prevent build up and blinding on the screens, multiple material classifications, top covers, access platforms, and infeed chutes.
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.
