Levenseat Ltd of Forth, Lanarkshire recently invested in a MRF from JCC Engcon Group and the facility is now nearing completion with all the major recycling components in place.
Angus Hamilton of Levenseat decided on the JCC range of recycling systems after extensive dialogue between the two companies on the optimum size of the facility and the integral features it should contain to reclaim the maximum recyclables from the proposed system e.g. the JCC integral ferrous separation system to allow further non-ferrous separation. Angus commented ‘We chose JCC for the design and installation of our plant due to their flexible approach and ability to manufacture bespoke solutions to meet our specific requirements. The quality of workmanship and competitive price was also very important to us and we have been very impressed by the approach taken by the experienced installation team.'
The recycling facility includes a grizzly cascade screener, with the under 200mm being taken to a separate trommel screen for the fines to be screened and any small ferrous waste separated via the overband magnet, before rejoining the over 200mm waste stream conveyor to the picking station.
Prior to both streams entering the picking station, both conveyors have heavy duty air density separators separating the light fraction into one large combined lights cage.
The SPS6 picking station consists of 6 picking bays with 1 internal ferrous separation bay which is fully guarded from the walkways and which allows the further separation of the non-ferrous waste stream inside the picking cabin. For the comfort of the pickers, the cabin has been designed with a lighting & heating system, insulated cladding, double glazed windows & doors, and ergonomic picking positions.
The picking station sits on the famous Levenseat "lego blocks" which have been designed to support the recycling facility. Levco blocks provide a robust and flexible approach to building a wide range of designs from storage bays to supporting walls for plant installations. The interlocking system holds the blocks together while allowing structures to be modified in the future or blocks to be used in a different application altogether. Due to the solid nature of the blocks they withstand heavy plant and add mass to produce a stable structure. They can be used to build temporary or permanent structures in any number of configurations and advice is available on design and layout.
