We shall recycle (it is easy)
A few tricks are often enough to improve recycling and reusing materials, even in the most ‘’ odd ” processes.
We read everywhere about the importance of recycling. How it is a mandatory duty. An act of awareness towards the planet and the environment.
All concepts with which we are in full agreement. But … (must there always be a but?) in some cases – the odd ones – to recycle, you need to think outside the box.
So we decided to sum up some of the odd processes that our clients have sent us. In most instances, we were stunned, others amazed. Well, we hope you’ll be too and of course, if you have a bizarre story to tell we are all ears.
Picture this. A massive plant. A chemical company where the circular economy is in constant improvement. They had 150 thousand cubic meters of gypsum sulphate contaminated by nylon sheets. Using a Caterpillar 323 and a trommel screener MB-S18 with small size grids and et voilà the powder is cleaned from residue. Unconventional and effective.
The beauty of the MB’s rotary screener exchangeable grids is that they come in different sizes, in Chile to separate excavated soil from sticks and brushwood they used the MB-S18 mounted on Case 210 and they choose a bigger grid size.
Surely everyone agrees that reclaiming brownfields can be daunting. Luckily for us, this Scottish company is specialized in such challenging tasks. They use an MB-R800 drum cutter to mix sticky and wet materials before feeding the thermal plant, optimising the entire process and increasing the plant efficiency. We are left speechless by this application, well done!
When we launched the shaft screener line, we envisioned them as versatile, due to the rotors change at the site. Due to the broad selection of shafts to choose from, we knew they could tackle several types of jobs. But little did we know that they could also: aerate salt, sift foundry steel fluff, and blend ashes.
All those different materials were wasted, but the aptitude to recycle has given them a new purpose. There is nothing we can say besides BRAVO!
All pretty impressive applications right? So let’s see something more playful, after all, it is summertime here in Italy.
Hands up who grow up in the 80s!
Surely you will remember the summer bonfires on the beach. Be ready to be blown away…. Imagine using an MB-G900 grapple to make the biggest bonfire ever! WOW! Marshmallow anyone?
And if you double-park or forgot your keys inside a locked van let’s move it out of the way with the MB-G900 grapple. Easy peasy.
