The recycling industry is faced with many challenges on a day to day basis. From increased environmental pressures, to stretching government targets, the industry is constantly under pressure to process waste faster than ever before, putting application components under pressure.

Machines Used In Recycling Include:

  • Separators
  • Crushers
  • Balers
  • Conveyors

Recycling plants face high volumes of waste, harsh and abrasive debris, shock loads and vibration, which put a lot of strain on components. These challenges need to be dealt with, whilst ensuring that health and safety is not compromised. Reducing energy consumption is almost paramount, reducing the plant’s carbon footprint as well as costs.

The increasing demands required of recycling plants has resulted in more pressure being put onto components, by running faster and for longer than ever before. This in turn increases the frequency of maintenance requirements, and also the likelihood of failure. The cost of failure in this industry is high – both financially and in terms of safety. Components need to be durable, long lasting and energy efficient, and workers need to be able to detect failure before it occurs.
