For large plant installations and intensive operations, we offer a range of automatic options that are designed to reduce the necessity for manual loading. These mechanised facilities will also accelerate the loading process and enable the operator to comply with international health and safety regulations concerning the lifting and moving of heavy or difficult to handle loads.
Included within our Auto Loading options are:
Bin Tippers, Elevators and Container Handling
Designed specifically to meet the requirements of waste incineration plant where waste is stored and transported to the incinerator in wheeled bins or containers, we offer a range of tipper options to match a range of differing needs and can be specified to transfer the waste directly into the incinerator or via a ram loader.
If direct loading is specified the bins are attached to an elevator that raises the load behind the protection of a personal safety gate. It is lifted under hydraulic or electrical power until it is in position when it inverts allowing the lid to open and the contents to be discharged.
A ram loader is a hydraulically driven loading device designed to power the waste into the incinerator via an interlocked hydraulic charge door. This acts to seal the primary combustion chamber from the waste and the operator to create a safe and environmentally efficient process that also prevents the ingress of uncontrolled air that can be a problem with manual loading.
The ram loader is manufactured from heavy steel plate and incorporates a hinged feed door together with a hydraulically operated pushing ram that operates on instructions from the integral control system. Having delivered the waste into the chamber the pushing ram withdraws and the charge door automatically closes ready for the next charge.
Crushers and Conveyors
For dense waste such as timber pre-treatment by crushing and shredding may be advantageous.
This pre-incineration process enables large quantities of waste to be effectively handled by the crusher before being conveyed to a storage hopper ready for incineration. Crushing and shredding also increase the efficiency of the combustion process by increasing the surface are of the waste.
From the hopper, a second conveyor or pump will automatically transfer the crushed waste directly into the incinerator’s primary chamber.
Liquid and Sludge Feed Systems
Liquid wastes such as oils, spent solvents, waste water, fats and emulsions etc that need to be atomised within the combustion chamber can be pumped directly into the incinerator from a holding tank fitted with optional heaters to produce the optimum pumping viscosity.
As commanded by the control system the liquid is then pumped under pressure into the incinerator via a stainless steel alloy injection lance.
