Waste handling for continuous production

Solutions > Waste Handling > Waste handling for continuous production >

CRETES offers turnkey solutions for the automatic evacuation and removal of waste coming from a continuous production process and for the reduction of the volume to save on transportation costs.

Each project, be it large or small and simple or complex, is developped in close cooperation with the customer. Energy saving, efficiency, budget, ergonomics, timing and safety are key elements. The main target always is to optimize or smoothen the existing production process by removing the waste as quickly and as efficiently as possible. The waste material can be composed of thin strips of plastic foil coming from the production of daipers, textile trims but it can also be complete, rejected magazines in a printing company.

For these turnkey projects Cretes not only supplies the machines and ductwork, but also the automation and electrical controls, the erection on site and the start up of the installation until the follow up of the first production runs are part of the scope.

 > In some cases screw or belt conveyors are applied, but mostly pneumatic transport is used. A complete system in that case is composed of:
  • Transport and/or suction fans
  • Ductwork
  • Separators (rotary air separators but also cyclone separators are possible)
  • Filter units
  • Hydraulic bale presses
  • Automatic bale evacuation with integrated weighing, bale wrapper, manipulators, etc.
  • Electrical controls for the complete system including communication with the production line

 > Applicable for production processes of for example:

  • Paper, card board
  • Foil, fleece, plastics
  • Woven textiles or nonwovens
  • Wood processing
  • Etc.
