    Recycling equipments for shredding solid waste & municipal solid waste

    Solid waste and municipal solid waste (MSW) size reduction requires processing of many different materials, from filled drums to household waste. And, as the amount of solid waste increases and the cost of landfill management increases, it is becoming more critical that waste management become more effective, economic and efficient. Shredded and compacted waste is easier and cheaper to transport and extends the life of the landfill. In addition, separating out materials that can be reclaimed and recycled or that need to be incinerated or composted increases the landfill productivity while providing revenue to offset the costs of processing the solid waste.

    Mixed Municipal Solid Waste Sorting

    Traditional (manual) or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from mixed municipal waste streams and mean considerable content going to landfill. In contrast, TOMRA Sorting’s fully automated, state-of-the-art, sensor-based municipal sorting systems convert complex and varied - even dirty - municipal solid waste streams into high quality, separated, marketable output. The systems also make manual sorting unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing efficiency. Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination.

  • High performance solid-liquid separation system for deepwell industry

    Deepwell facilities for the disposal of plant waste streams often employ nominally rated spray spun elements, bags, diatomaceous earth filters, and various other types of conventional filtration technology. These labor intensive systems provide protection of the well from occlusion by suspended particle matter, albeit often with high operational cost and limited assurance of reliable fluid quality. The ongoing challenge facing a deepwell system is the requirement that the formation into which the waste is being pumped must maintain its porous nature in order to operate effectively. Therefore, reliable, effective filtration to capture particles with the potential to plug the formation is critical. Pentair Porous Media’s proven advanced separation technologies have been employed in deepwell disposal systems to enhance system reliability, assure well integrity and lower operating costs and system maintenance.

  • Filtration in waste water treatments. disinfection

    The cost and efficiency of the waste water treatment is directly linked to the amount of suspended solids in the water.
    The addition of an AZUD System allows:

    • Increased efficiency of the treatment equipment.
    • Decreases the quantity of chemicals used.
    • Avoids the “shadowing effect” created by larger particles in UV disinfection systems.

  • SRF

    SRF Manufacture is an alternative fuel produced by shredding and dehydrating solid waste, typically consisting of combustible components of solid waste, including paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic. It can be produced to a range of specifications to meet customer requirements. Solid Recovered Fuel Manufacture The materials used to produce Solid Recovered Fuel pass through a series of shredders, screens, air classifiers/density separators and magnets. Inert materials, recyclable plastics and metals are extracted from the shredded material, leaving a mix of mainly non-recyclable paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic. Although a small proportion of these materials can be recycled the quality of these materials is compromised once they enter the residual waste stream and recovering energy from these materials is currently the best environmental option.

  • Oil water separation for the food industry

    Packaged-food producers frequently use and then must discard large batches of cooking oil used in their process. Usually they drain most of the oil directly from equipment, but they must remove residual oil by regularly washing fryers, ovens, conveyors, and other machinery. 

    The oil mixes with the wash water and becomes part of the plants wastewater stream. Having oil in wastewater complicates the wastewater-treatment process by making it more expensive, more time-consuming, and less effective. Additionally. as with other manufacturers, packaged-food producers want to reduce waste and decrease the environmental impact of operations. That is why removing used oil and solids from wastewater before it is discharged is a priority.

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for metal industry

    Sludge by-products from the metalworking industry have a high potential for recycling. Prolonged grinding processes can generate large amounts of highly valuable, alloy-rich sludge; consisting of metal powder and cooling lubricants. Inside our VacuDry system, the thermal separation of the liquids (hydrocarbons, eventually water) and solids (metal powder) takes place in an oxygen free atmosphere. This absence of oxygen ultimately eliminates material degradation by oxidation, and self-ignition or explosion risks. Operation under a low vacuum ensures the possibility to recover the cooling lubricants for later reuse. After the thermal treatment, for appropriate handling in the melting process, the metal powder is pressed into briquettes. With the econ VacuDry technology, 100% recycling of all ingredients is possible.

  • Waste water treatment / Sludge management

    PBS Velká Bíteš develops and manufactures machines for the separation of solid and suspended particles from liquids. The so-called "Decanter Centrifuges" can be used for a wide range of applications: from separation of municipal and industrial sludge in waste water treatment plants, through food and chemical industries up to agriculture. In the area of separation, we offer not only the decanter centrifuges themselves, but also the related services, including servicing of third-party equipment.

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for oil and gas industry

    There are a wide amount of applications for our VacuDry® process within the oil and gas industry. A large variety of wastes and by-products that are generated in the oil & gas production chain can be treated effectively and sustainably. In past decades, numerous thermal desorption processes have been implemented worldwide, using a variety of heating chamber designs to separate hydrocarbons from the mineral solids. Such standard TDUs work under atmospheric pressure which can lead to safety risks, high energy consumption, larger emissions and limited flexibility regarding altering feed materials. Due to its unique design, the complications outlined above are avoided throughout the VacuDry® process. When it comes to treating standard oily wastes, mercury-containing waste streams, NORM, and especially for the recovery of highly valuable drilling fluids from drill cuttings; our vacuum thermal desorption process (i.e. vacuum distillation) is economically unbeatable.

  • Using evaporation to dewater Reverse Osmosis reject waste streams

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology has been used for years in various industries to separate dissolved solids from water by forcing the water through a semi-permeable membrane. RO is also commonly used to purify drinking water and desalinate seawater to yield potable water. The water and other molecules with lower molecular weight (specific weight of molecules allowed to pass through is dependent on the selected membrane) pass through the micropores in the membrane, yielding a purified water stream called the permeate. Larger molecules are retained by the membrane as well as a portion of the water that does not pass through the membrane. This concentrated stream is called the concentrate or RO reject.
