This medium sized, family run, company started business offering skip hire services across two counties and through organic growth has become one of the largest regional processors of man-made fibre, including carpet and floor coverings.
The success of their carpet collection service was becoming a problem with current machinery is unable to keep pace with the daily inbound volumes, hence purchase of a factory refurbished WEIMA Spider1500 90kW single shaft shredder from Fercell Weima UK.
The installation has increased processing capacity by 46%.
The Weima Spider1500 90kW single shaft shredder is supplied with a 40mm screen and being conveyor ready the installation included an IMRO rising in-feed conveyor with over band magnet and "L" type discharge conveyor leading to a hopper. The over band magnet captures tramp ferrous material to improve the premium paid for quality recyclate.
Power consumption savings of more than 30% of over their old shredding system was well within the parameter allowing this installation eligible for an energy efficiency grant.
Currently all processed materials are supplied to a RDF source with a smaller amount to equestrian applications.
Weima Spider 1000, 1500 & 2000 models are well represented in the waste sector as an industry workhorse, in many cases the prime mover working in some of the harshest environments.
