QUALITY must be concrete, not only an advertising spot

 

Special Global Recycling Day: March 18th, 2019

The Global Recycling Day promotes the use of better technologies for the waste enhancement.

More attention has to be paid to companies which provide high levels recovery solutions in order to realise this project, avoiding faint and illusory advertising campaigns. Some companies promise top productivity results just on paper, that actually cannot be achieved, leaving clients at the mercy of problems.

 

introduce innovations for clients

It is very important to select the right company both for the supply of machines and also for complete plants.

The investments of companies in research and development is a distinctive trait. These can be carried out inside the company or in partnership with universities research departments.
Both methods have the aim to introduce innovations for clients. Patents is the final confirmation of high quality.

One of the most important factor is the predisposition of the supplier in listening and solving the clients problems.
A top quality product has its basis on solid Costumer Care procedures. From the tailored productive cycle development, till the treatment aimed to maximise the treated materials’ commercial value. Additional value consists in the pre-assembly and test before the start up. Only few companies focuses on a fast installation to maximise the time for the staff training.

 

Hammermills and economic benefits

An excellent example, for waste treatment is the hammermill. An underestimated machine but essential for the economic enhancement of metals.
The grinding process and the volumetric reduction enable to pre-treat or refining waste like electric motors, aluminium profile, cans, mix RSU, shredded collection, WEEE and other kind of waste. The mix outputs can be then conveyed to separation systems.

A top quality hammermill is able to provide financial and productivity benefits. For this reason we have to consider on the technical plan words like quality, reliability and productivity.

Some concrete examples can be made.
The grinding chamber need to have armours, so the external structure will be protected from wear.
During the working process the mill is subject to high efforts, so it is strategic important the choice of carpentries and welding. Comparing different mills which treat the same input material, we can note that in poorer models, wears appear also after a short period of use. This problems do not occur in other models with specific construction features even after several years of use.
Another yardstick are the components subject to wear. The material that makes up the hammers, need to be specially designed. Waste contained abrasive materials need to be treat with hammers, armours and grids which enables long working cycles, guaranteeing a top quality of the output product.
The applied technology has to be functional and easy to use for the operators. Maintenance and the change of setting for the different treatments (possibility to grind different types of waste) need to be carried out in short time.

This few examples are obviously related also in economic benefits.

In the future waste will be always more complex to enhance. In order to concrete the Global Recycling Day aim, it’s important to distinguish the companies like Panizzolo, that are able to provide solutions for metals enhancement and to maximize companies productivity.

Panizzolo Doubles Its Production Area

 

In a short time Panizzolo will complete the site extension works, doubling both the production area and the offices in Giacomo Matteotti street.

Last year the growing amount of work led to enter new skilled staff in technical, sales and after sales departments. In 2019 there will be the development of the production area that will be used for the pre assembly, testing of the machines and plants. New offices and meeting rooms will welcome our visitors.

The employment of sales and technical personnel is a guarantee of professionalism and quality. In this way Panizzolo has increased even more the assistance and the management of clients needs.

IERC 2019: Panizzolo presentation on WEEE fluff

 

In January 2019 Panizzolo participated at IERC congress, annual event which gather in Salisbury the most important international companies, specialised in the management of WEEE waste.

The speech of Matteo Turatto, Panizzolo sales manager, was this edition news. This event enabled to deepen the fluff treatment from WEEE waste and mix metals, to enhance copper, aluminium and steel contained inside of them. A very important issue for companies all over the world, which are forced to send a lot of tons of fluff to the landfill, material which could be recover.

 

 

Turatto, during his conference, compared the waste disposal with a specially developed treatment process. With the help of video clips of running plants in Europe, the exposition was related also to economic calculations on treatment, from data on recovered metals and output photos.

The technology of the plant works thanks to a complete mechanic and automatic treatment. The hammermills inside have been especially designed and patented. All the recycling solution works completely in line, enhancing metals with End-of-Waste cycle.
This refining plant, one of a kind in Europe for the treatment method, is the result of long tests at Padua plant and its aim it’s not only the separation of output materials, but overall the maximisation of the commercial value for sale.

The concreteness of the issue exposed has impressed different companies at the congress, that, at the end of the conference, took the opportunity to make more questions both in the conference hall and at Panizzolo stand.

Fluff waste management: new metal recovery plant

 

Flexible treatment in fluff waste management

Launched at the beginning of 2019, the new Panizzolo refining plant for fluff waste management.
Also presented in January during the IERC conference (in which Panizzolo participated with a dedicated speaking session), it consists of a Panizzolo patented hammermill that is designed to complete the Fluff waste cycle and obtain EoW metals output by recovering steel, aluminium and copper (even coils and electric motors).

 

Solid waste in input are differentiated into the following types: Fluff from mixed, crushed and ground metals, Fluff from floatation systems, car fluff (from discarded vehicles), WEEE recycling fluff and other secondary mixes.
The refining system is designed to recover metals with an End of Waste cycle logic. On completion, it obtains granulated aluminium, copper and steel that is completely separated and classified as secondary raw materials.

 

Panizzolo hammermill: machines that reduce management costs

RAF-M and RAF-F hammer mills are Panizzolo refining plant’s core operation.
Perfect after extensive tests carried out at the Panizzolo scrap and waste recovery plant at Padova, this category of hammer mills guarantees reliability and safety in fluff waste management.
As opposed to electric cable shredding plants (structured to separate copper, plastic and shred aluminium cables without other foreign metals), the Panizzolo hammers mill refiner has a fixed and mobile hammer rotor.
By means of a reinforced structure, patented machining logic and components with special casting, the plant is perfectly in line with the treatment and recovery quality required by the company in North Europe. Our client treats complex waste composed of: copper, aluminium, plastic, fabric, cables with earth coupling (with presence of steel and nickel), radiators with iron reinforcement, pins with steel, cement powder and glass powder from WEEE, metals mixed with steel and iron (from grinding electric motors) and many more.

 

Thanks to the unique hammermill refiner, Panizzolo ensures a method of recycling waste that is difficult to handle (and usually started at the landfill), almost completely automated, while components subject to wear are designed to maximise the service cycle and simplify replacement. The solidity of Panizzolo waste treatment plants is proven by the said company that still operates in continuous production cycles.

 

Maximise the price of copper

The recovery of metals and separation from inert materials is carried out with an automated mechanical treatment cycle. The mixed fluff is ground, separated from magnetic components and finished off with granulation and separation of copper and aluminium.
Following the waste treatment regulations and aiming to obtain commercially marketable renewable metals, the Fluff waste treatment and recovery plant guarantees a higher quotation of the metal output, especially increasing the valuation of the sales price of the copper granule. This is proven by the Panizzolo scrap and waste recovery plant, certified manufacturer of secondary raw materials (Mps: EU 333-2011 and EU 715-2013).
Requests for this new technology are constantly on the rise in Italy and Europe. Completing the waste cycle with a single plant that works End of Waste (EoW), management of waste fluff and car fluff opens the doors to new perspectives to which the market is reacting with great interest. European companies acknowledge that Panizzolo, by means of its refining plant, has been able to transform a large problem into an interesting business opportunity.

Panizzolo at EKOTECH 2019

 

Panizzolo from 27th February to 1st march 2019, in partnership with NUFAR, will attend the next EKOTECH edition at Targi Kielce Trade Fairs (Kielce – Polonia).

Come to visit us and discover more about our company and our scrap metal waste recycling solutions.

Panizzolo: All the news and records from Ecomondo 2018

 

Once again, this year the usual rendez-vous with Ecomondo at Rimini’s exhibition centre came to a close. A benchmark in Italy and abroad for companies operating in the Green Economy sector and that, like Panizzolo, provide systems to recycle and process metal and ferrous waste. This is why the end purpose of Panizzolo’s plant is to put all output fractions back on the market again as secondary raw materials.

During the intense days at Ecomondo, companies from all over the world visited the stand of the company based in Padua. They were able to see for themselves the quality of the hammermills, shredders and separation systems entirely made in Italy and designed with 30 years of hands-on experience.
The option of performing simple and effective treatments, reusing waste previously intended for landfills or exports drew strong interest, a calendar full of visits at Panizzolo’s offices and tangible sales negotiations.

 

 

Well-established visitors alternated with new companies from emerging countries. They were all provided with an interesting overview of its products: from the renowned range of hammermills with a flexible treatment (thanks to the patented interchangeable cradle) up to the latest new entries presented at the trade fair.
The wide audience of companies was very impressed, especially by the range of waste treatment systems offered. From the recycling of mixed post-consumption tins to the recovery of ferrous proler and aluminium from mixed waste from municipal solid waste (MSW). From the recovery of aluminium from profiles and guards combined with the grinding and refining of electric motors, up to the recovery of metals from WEEE and much more.

Thanks to the daily management of the grinding system in the renowned head office, highly competent staff were able to deal with the treatment issues of all the visitors at Panizzolo’s stand.
There was great appreciation for the new stationary hammermill model, Flex 500 Stationary Refine, which visitors were able to see and touch for themselves. The new model (90 kW and an output up to 2 tonne/h) is part of the category of Panizzolo pre-refiners designed to grind heavy waste and then recover all the metals.

As well as doubling the exhibition area, this year’s edition also featured the official presentation of RAF-F and RAF-M hammermills, also in place at the Panizzolo stand.
Designed for the grinding and granulation of metals (copper, aluminium and steel) from specific waste like FLUFF from mixed metals, FLUFF from flotation plants, de-ironed copper from electric motors, Fluff from WEEE treatments and much more.

 

 

Compared to the market, the new models perform mechanical treatments on far larger incoming pieces (up to 30 mm), provide a considerable reduction radio (equal to 5:1) and are structured for treatments in the presence of stainless steel and abrasive aggregates.
The components, patented and unique in the sector, are the result of two years of direct testing in the renowned head office. Companies across the world were very enthusiastic and two refining plants will be launched in Europe by the end of the year.
Not least important is the recognition recorded by the trade fair company behind Ecomondo. The new technological entry introduced by the patented refiners led to the release of a specific certificate in this regard.

Ecomondo is a successful rendez-vous for Panizzolo, whose unfailing presence is the climax of a long series of international trade fair events held in 2018. Starting from IFAT (Munich), the busy schedule continued with RWM, Aluminium, POL ECO and the Assofermet congress in Rome. The last event will be Pollutec (from 27 to 30 November), while in January 2019 Panizzolo will be at IERC where in the auditorium it will be the star of a conference on the recovery of metals from Fluff.

Eastern Europe: recovering metals from mixed MSW

 

All EU countries have big problems related to the disposal of mixed waste from urban centres.

The possibility to recover aluminium and iron content (especially from post-consumption tins) is strongly impeded by the high percentage of plastic, nylon and other wear-resistant inert materials (such as glass), which makes the treatment for the systems offered by the market excessively burdensome.

Until a few years ago, such  M.S.W. was sent to a landfill, which is no longer possible given the recent stringent regulations and the gradual closure of collection centres. However, conveying this waste to a complete and effective recovery cycle remains a current problem.

Panizzolo offers a concrete and efficient solution thanks to its recycling plants. A plant was opened in September in a large Eastern European company, dedicated to the recovery of aluminium and ferrous cans from from municipal solid waste (MSW).

 

 

Consisting of the Stationary Flex 1000 hammermill (250 kW – production up to 10 ton/h), complete with a patented interchangeable cradle, as always.
The Stationary Flex 1000 performs an excellent grinding process, thereby obtaining high quality and density Proler in output. The final recovery takes place via a zig-zag air separator, series ZZ 10000, which releases the metal from light inert residues.
Unlike the non-magnetic output, upon leaving the hammer mill, it is treated in line by the Panizzolo ECP 1000 eddy current, thereby completing the recovery and cleaning of the aluminium from inert.

 

 

Fast installation and implementation of its solutions are standard in Panizzolo systems. The customer was able to immediately start working at full working regime in a very short time.
Panizzolo quality is a factor that is also evident over time. The plants respect the key phrase “time is money”: they are designed to operate in continuous production cycles; maintenance is simple and basic; and the processing logic reduces the consumption of electricity (without affecting hourly productivity), also when recovering the most abrasive and heavy waste.
