THE AEROCYCLE SYSTEM

UNDER RE-DEVEOPMENT

NEW CONTAINERISED MULTI-FEED

AEROSOL RECYCLING SYSTEM

SUITABLE FOR BOTH MANUFACTURERS AND HAZARDOUS WASTE SITES

Basic Methodology:

  • Hopper fed either manually, bin lift or bucket or can be conveyed from production line if required. 
  • Conveyor feeds on a stop/start basis via a chute into the sealed container..
  • The aerosols fall into the lidded crushing chamber which is then filled with Nitrogen 
  • The 40 tonne hydraulic ram crushes the aerosols releasing both contents and propellant.
  • The contents and propellant drop into a stainless steel tray.
  • The contents are then extracted into the filtration system outside the container and the liquid is used to wash-out/defoam in a continuous feed or content can be drawn off. 
  • The propellant is extracted from the container via steel pipes and exits the container  via an extraction system to a carbon filtration system or to our new GAS to LPG system which can provide fuel for use elsewhere on site or can be sold off giving an income.
  • The contents are filtered through a pumped tray system returning for re-use. The washing out/defoaming liquid can vary depending on the product being dealt with and can be filtered for re-use in a continuous process if suitable. 
  • The crushed cans are expressed from the crushing chamber in a bale and pushed up a stainless steel chute whilst being washed for at least five minutes before exiting the chamber.
  • Once outside the chamber the cans in briquette-form can be stacked for metal recycling or simply tipped into a tipping skip and into the general metal recycling skip.
  • There is a continuous monitoring system operating to set parameters which will stop the machine in the event that these parameters are exceeded.

FAIL SAFE DEVICES:  These are all controlled by the central control panel and will activate immediate shut down should the machine pumps fail, blockages of product occur, differential between input and output in filtration unit, or temperature rise above the desired setting. Emergency stop buttons are located outside and inside the container.

There are NO exposed moving parts within the container. Aids safety in use!

Brief Specification:

  • Baler:  Hydraulic ram model KK540 with adaptions. 
  • Power:  3 phase 440 volt.
  • Hopper/conveyor:  Built to suit site and client's needs.
  • Drainage tray:  Stainless steel.
  • Filtration System:  Efficient filter removes any solid residues from wash-out/defoamer  
  • Propellant to Fuel (LPG) conversion including generator to provide on-sit electric.
  • Base wash out:  Water or De-foamer solvent depending on product.
  • Level sensors:  Give auto shut-off to prevent overflow.
  • Optional Wash out system: 1.) 2 x 500 litre stainless steel feed tanks and piping throughout. 2.) into Crushing Chamber and out of Drainage Tray. 3.) From Drainage Tray into dirty water tank via a filter/pump into the clean water tank for re-use. 4.) Integrated control cabinet with waterproof controls.
  • HAZOP REPORT & RISK ASSESSMENT
  • C E CERTIFICATION
  • ATEX CERTIFICATION
