Based in the East of England Firstgrade Recycling Systems Limited has recently introduced the Zambesi Water Separator (ZWS) to the recycling market.
Ideal for producing high quality aggregates the first system has been installed for Smith Skips in Aberdeen to clean up two fractions (10 to 50mm and 50 to 280mm) from their waste transfer station.
Utilising water separation (undoubtedly the best method) the ZWS has successfully removed all wood, plastics, plasterboard and other waste materials from the incoming feed of recycled aggregate, resulting in a high quality saleable product.
In operation the ZWS uses a fast moving flume of water to separate the light from the heavy materials and through a unique separation system removes items which are heavier than water, (such as rubber and plastics), along with the light fraction.
Applications for the Zambezi include removing light contamination from recycled aggregates, and removing glass and metal from woodchips or mulch.
Firstgrade specialise in the design, manufacture and installation of machinery for the waste processing industry.
Ideally suited to the evolving needs of the skip waste, MSW, wood waste and compost sectors, their main product portfolio includes, trommels screens, vibrating feeders, picking stations, conveyors and elevators, separators using air, magnets and water and vibrating screens.
The company also offer a consultation service involving a site visit, the preparation of a detailed drawing and a proposal to suit your specific needs.
Machines can be designed to make the best use of the space available, which is almost always a limiting factor in waste transfer stations.
