  • Mechanical treatment of automobile shredder residue for its application as a fuel

    Enforcement of the Automobile Recycling Law in Japan requires utilization of automobile shredder residue (ASR). However, the high contents of copper (~5%) and chlorine (~1%) in ASR stand in the way of practical application. We studied methods for the removal of copper and chlorine from ASR so that it could be utilized as a fuel. By compression of the ASR for solidification with an extruder, the ...

  • Excavator height measurement, protects power supplies, protects drivers

    In a change from their more usual applications controlling and measuring flow and level of all sorts of materials, Pulsar Process Measurement Ltd have supplied non-contacting ultrasonic level measurement to the North Level District Internal Drainage Board to measure the height of the arm of the jib arms mounted on hydraulic excavators used to keep the drainage channels clear. As the ...

  • The Experts’ Views of Horizontal Hydraulic Auger Dredging

    I attended the 42nd Texas A & M University dredging short course in January 2013. Despite the mountain of excellent information I gleaned from the course, I was disappointed that my dredging field wasn’t featured. Horizontal hydraulic auger dredging ...

  • Hydraulic Dredging: A cost effective solution for most dredging tasks

    The vast majority of dredging jobs require removal of solids to depths of 30 feet or less. Several features enable hydraulic dredges to be the solution of choice for these applications. First, what are hydraulic dredges and how do they compare with alternative mechanical dredge types? Hydraulic dredges create slurries, combinations of solids and water, pump the slurries to the ...

  • Dredging contaminated sediments at an active impact range: an ordnance avoidance success

    At Eagle River Flats, the challenge was to remediate the white phosphorous but leave the UXO (unexploded ordnance) behind. The solution was a dredge system that can withstand a big bang. Eagle River Flats, an estuarine salt marsh located at Fort Richardson in Alaska, has been used by the armed forces for over 50 years as an artillery impact area. During the 1980's, thousands of dead and dying ...
