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.
