Ecohog have the finnish-ing touch

Salon Hyötykäyttö Oy is the perfect example of Ecohog separation technologies working in harmony to maximise performance and revenue for customers.

This C&D waste recycling facility utilises:

-         Lindner Urraco 75 Shredder

-         Ecohog EST 8220 modular dual screen trommel

-         Ecohog QCS-1200 quality control cabin

-         Ecohog EH1500 SMP Windshifter

-         Ecohog THM ECS-2000 mobile Eddy Current Separator

The C&D Waste stock pile is grab fed into the Lindner Urraco shredder for size reduction and densification. It is then delivered to the EST 8220 dual screen Trommel to remove a Fines 0-20mm fraction and a Mid-size 20-90mm fraction. The Fines are stock piled and the Mid-size and Oversize +90mm fractions travel downstream for further recovery processes.

The Oversize fraction is transferred to the QCS-1200 mobile picking station with onboard dual action Blower/Suction Airhog system and Overband magnet. The Airhog system removes light trash material such as Paper, Cardboard, cloth and foil prior to the picking cabin where this is also a secondary suction hood to remove residual light trash material. The picking cabin features 2-bays for 4-person manual sorting of valuable commodities such as wood, plastic, stone, rubber before the Oversize material is discharged under an overband magnet to recover Ferrous (steel) metals.

The Mid-size fraction is transferred to the THM ECS-2000 to recover residual Ferrous metals (screws, bolts, nails) with the onboard drum magnet and then valuable non-ferrous metals (Al, Cu, Brass) with the 2m wide Eddy Current Separator.

Finally the residual fraction (non-metallic) from the THM ECS 2000 is fed to the EH1500 SMP Windshifter to separate the heavy stone/aggregate material from light material such as Wood, Plastic and Fluff that could be used in SRF/RDF supply.

Mr. Mikko Brandt, Managing Director of Salon Hyötykäyttö Oy had this to say “I am very happy with the line, everything has worked well with Ecohog. Ecohog has been very flexible with our requests and we have got a line that works as planned and as promised”.

Tristam Hubbard-Miles, Global Sales Director of Ecohog Ltd said “We’re really grateful to continue our long standing with Salon Hyötykäyttö and Luminer and welcomed the opportunity to supply a complete Ecohog C&D plant downstream. This plant has become a flagship reference site for a wide range of Ecohog sorting technologies and showcases our determination to continually work with customers and help generate maximum revenue for them.”

Kari Strandvall, Managing Director of Luminer Oy further commented saying “It has been a pleasure to co-operate with Ecohog and Salon Hyötykäyttö Oy and to be able to deliver this kind of line. The line became just as we planned together with Ecohog and the customer”.

In conclusion, Ecohog have been able to offer a full mobile and modular downstream combination of systems to minimise waste material to landfill and maximise revenue for the customer.
