Waste Equipment Innovation sponsored by the BMI Group

EDGE Innovate

EDGE Innovate design, manufacture and export world leading equipment throughout the world from its 150,000sq ft manufacturing facility in Co. Tyrone and has quickly become a highly respected player in the material handling and recycling equipment sectors.

The company offers a total of 24 innovative products, its latest being FreeFlow, a new vibratory screen used for the classification and separation of difficult to screen materials.

The EDGE FreeFlow Screen range allows for two screening operations in one unit. Featuring a heavy duty scalping screen, the FreeFlow allows operators to process large un-screened material on the rigid scalping top deck, whilst providing a fine screening solution on the dual motion lower deck. With the ability to run 10% faster than competing flip flow screens and a mat acceleration of up to 50g, the EDGE 18’X6’ FreeFlow 186 screen provides operators with the ability to process hard screening tasks throughout the year despite the weather conditions. Designed for the screening of sticky, moist materials with a high percentage of fines the EDGE FreeFlow is ideal for the processing of soils, aggregates, ores, waste, biomass and other waste derived fuels including products with high percentage moisture contents. EDGE Innovate offer an extensive product range. The EDGE Material Handling portfolio includes mobile stockpilers, tracked feeders, roll-sizers and truck off-loaders, while the recycling range comprises trommels, shredders, picking stations, material classifiers and fines recovery plants aimed at the ever changing global waste recycling sector.
