Latest Cover Story: Kiverco Offers Innovative Alternative to Traditional Waste Processing

Kiverco have launched the first products in a new innovative Compact Plant range which offers a cost effective and efficient alternative to traditional ways of processing waste.

Designed and built by the same team that has successfully produced over 200 static plants since Kiverco began, the initial range includes a Feeder Trommel, Picking Station and Density Separator.

Each component has been designed with the same uncompromising Kiverco characteristics of solid and robust engineering. They all offer fast, simple and safe on-site set-up capability, and provide the option of rapid relocation if required.

No cranes are required during set up which can be accomplished within hours, and with various options and configurations, customers can benefit from maximum flexibility to obtain a bespoke solution for their waste handling needs.

The Compact Plant range from Kiverco, which has all of the qualities and strength of a stationery plant with the features of a mobile one, is best suited to any operator who is currently processing waste manually and would like to move to a more efficient way of working. With the added advantage of mobility, this should also be of interest to mobile contractors or anyone working at a site on a temporary licence.

Capable of processing up to 150m3 per hour, the new plant attracted lots of interest during a recent Kiverco dealer conference and series of demonstration days which were well attended by the majority of Kiverco’s European dealers who were more than impressed with what they saw.

It began at the Glenavon Hotel in Cookstown with presentations from the sales and marketing team highlighting key details of the compact plant. On subsequent days, there were factory tours and demonstrations where dealers got a chance to see the machines in action.

As this plant can be ready to work within a few hours of the equipment arriving on site, it is particularly suited for sites where space may be at a premium or where there is limited infrastructure and no direct power supply. These machines are diesel electric powered with the option of mains electric power, which also eliminates the risk of hydraulic oil spills during operation.

Picking Station

The Compact Picking Station combines air and magnetic separation with manual sorting in one complete unit. This allows the recovery of many materials including hardcore, wood, paper, card, metal, plastic and RDF. There is currently a variety of Picking Stations from 2 to 6 bays. These picking stations can accommodate a wide range of skip sizes beneath the picking cabin.

Density Separator

This Compact Density Separator uses the latest in air separation technology. With fast and simple on-site set-up it efficiently separates material into useable fractions to produce clean product. The self-contained DS greatly reduces the amount of material that needs to be sent to landfill, delivering considerable savings in areas where landfill taxes and transport costs are high.

Feeder Trommel

The Compact Feeder Trommel carries out the initial screening of different sized material. A key feature of this machine is that it is fully enclosed with drum outlet covers, which greatly minimises noise and dust. This is especially important on sites located in built up areas. This innovative new design is truly adaptive, with 2 or 3 way split, and is ideal for use across a wide range of applications.
