Arjes shredder shows potential in IsraelPublished 10/5 at 14:36
In general, waste separation and recycling have not been addressed as intensively in Israel as in Europe.
Nevertheless, strong interest has been shown in equipment to handle diverse mixed material. In particular, the Arjes ‘Impaktor’ and ‘Titan’ shredders, whose strengths lie in the asynchronous principle of the shredding shafts, have proved very popular.
Carmel Natural Products Ltd., which has been responsible for sales in Israel for Arjes for several years, has already convinced many of the potential of the machines as the following examples highlight.
The recycling company Gal Michsur, based in northern Haifa, has been using an Impacktor 250 evo to process materials such as green waste, commercial waste, glass, nylon and plastic. The shredded waste wood is primarily used as a substitute fuel in incineration plants and is obtained by an external company for fuel production. The prepared green waste is used for further processing in composting plants. All metal contaminants found are reliably removed with a built-in over band magnet with the clean biomaterial then screened. The generated commercial waste is shredded by the user to reduce its volume in order to save considerable transportation costs and subsequent landfilling in southern Israel.
On the site of Carmel Natural Products Ltd. there is also an in-house composting area and a collection point for green waste. Using a Titan 950 this is shredded directly on site. The material is then screened and processed to a final grain size of 0mm - 20mm, as required in the Israeli compost industry. Using the Titan 950, stones and metal parts missed during pre-sorting can be pre-shredded and sorted out. This way, there is less jamming and therefore less damage to the subsequent screener. The shredder has an innovative SCU control system for adjusting the shaft speed and, with the help of the radio remote control and the standard track chassis, optimum mobility on site is assured.
There is a large scale waste collection point located in the south of the country where numerous types of waste come together. Unlike most European countries, a large part of the waste generated there is still dumped and buried. By using the Titan 950, however, the volume of household and commercial waste is reduced to such an extent that significantly more layers of waste can be deposited in the end, which means more money for the system operator. The strengths of the Titan 950 are particularly evident processing a diverse mix of materials. Thanks to the revolutionary quick change system of the shredding shafts, the twin shaft can be easily installed and removed within a very short period of time. This makes maintenance, preparation and changing of the different shaft types easier for almost an uninterrupted operation.
