Recycling trommels for Africa

Home Agriculture Recycling trommels for Africa

BLT World has introduced the newly launched MDS M518R trommel recycling trommel into Africa.

BLT World Managing Director Ken Mouritzen said the new trommel, which has been developed by trommel technology specialists MDS International, is especially useful for recycling and light-duty applications.

“Typical functions are in processing general waste, compost, soil, woodchip, rubber and plastics. We believe this robust and versatile trommel will optimise productivity in the recycling industry by increasing output,” Mouritzen said.

“Quick drum changes minimise downtime and there are significant cost savings by using one trommel for many applications. Accessibility of this machine to various recycling centres is also enhanced by easy haulage from site to site.”

The M518R – which weighs less than 20T and has an overall reduced height at 3,14m – can be easily transported on regular low body trailers. Other notable features include a low centre of gravity and the ability to achieve high stockpile heights.

This trommel has been designed for easy changes to the configuration of its drums, giving users the flexibility to produce different grades of materials, using the same unit. The machine is equipped with a hydraulic drum removal system that enables quick drum changing, using a standard forklift.

BLT World, exclusive distributors for MDS in Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands, offers three styles of MDS drums – fully-welded, mesh and punch plate – designed for high output in different applications.

These drums with openings from 1mm to 150mm, are made as frames onto which different sized meshes can be fixed. For user convenience, the MDS design team has standardised dimensions of the M518R, to ensure compatibility with other OEM drums.

The full range of MDS trommel screens and apron feeders is supported by BLT World’s technical advisory, supply and repair service throughout Africa.
