In 2007, more than 21 million tonnes of waste was disposed of in landfills in Australia. In a bid to eliminate waste, every little bit helps to prevent carpets going into landfills.
As a country we are highly dependent on landfills for waste disposal. There are plenty of concerns of the impact that this has on the environment, which indirectly affects all of us in the long term. Many companies have over a period of time have introduced green strategies in a bid to cut down waste and increase their recycling efforts. We have a look here at one way this company is doing it's part in reducing the waste carpets that ends up in landfills.
A carpet manufacturing business in south western Sydney, required a specialised system for recycling their old carpet tiles. Ezi-Duct was able to provide them with a solution that included the eCono 4000 Dust Collector, Ezi-Duct Modular Steel Ducting, Ezi-Flex flexible ducting and the Polex designed rotary separator.
To recycle old carpets, the carpet tiles are first shaved and these products are then collected with negative pressure and put through a polex Rotary Separator to separate the dust from the carpet tiles fibres. Rotary Separators are designed to separate, from a moving air stream, products that have a large surface area. The dust free carpet fiber then goes into a bailer and the dust goes into the Ezi-Duct eCono 4000 Dust Collector.
The eCono 4000 Dust Collector provides suction of up to 4000 m3/h @ 2500 pa and has a high efficiency, energy saving 4.0 kW fan. The eCono 4000 Dust Collector automatically cleans the 15 top quality filter bags in the unit every time the dust collector is shut down, via a PLC incorporated into the control panel that is supplied with the unit. This makes the Dust Collector operate at 100% efficiency the next time the Dust Extraction System is used.
