Policing the waste stream
Mogensen to show Type SRSL 1700/1000 trash screen for scalping duties in the recycling sector
The Mogensen stand at this year’s RWM exhibition will feature a 1,700mm x 1,000mm wide trash screen, Type SRSL 1700/1000, a type of machine widely supplied to the recycling industry for scalping and ‘policing’ duties, such as the removal of bulky, low-density materials, eg paper, cardboard, plastic bags and fibrous matter, from heavier, smaller-size feed components.
The screen is driven by an Invicta rotary electric vibrator, Type BLz30-23/6, offering a maximum centrifugal force output of 2,300kg. The vibrator may be rotated either forward or in reverse in order to vary the speed of travel of materials over the screen surface.
Mogensen screens, feeders and conveyors, in both standard and custom-designed versions, are in widespread use in the recycling industry, handling various materials including used tyres and scrap rubber; miscellaneous scrap glass; wood waste; compost; bone meal and other biomass materials; aerosol cans and other scrap metal; recycled concrete and aggregates; plasterboard; and mixed textile and plastic waste.
