Kiverco launches new waste plant series
By Leila Steed16 March 2021
Recycling equipment manufacturer Kiverco has launch its Ks Series of waste recycling plants, which can be installed and made operational in just one day.
The modular range can be transported by trailer and then off-loaded with a hydraulic jacking leg feature on site, where it can be readied for use within a few hours.
Northern Ireland-based Kiverco said the plant would appeal to contractors and rental companies alike and that it was “sure to revolutionise the waste industry”.
Capable of handling up to 14 recovered products from various mixed waste streams, units such as the company’s Ks 615S are available with a choice of either a two, three or four bay picking station to recover the desired recyclables.
Gareth Hawthrone, senior technical engineer at Kiverco, said: “The Ks series is a pioneering yet simple concept that has never been packaged like this before.
“This highly robust ‘static plant’ allows waste companies to immediately remove valuable commodities from the waste stream, which can be reused and/or recycled cost-effectively, diverting waste from landfill.
“Like all Kiverco plants, it has been designed, engineered, and built using the most durable materials to ensure it withstands the test of time, whilst offering customers a simple user-friendly solution for waste processing and recovery.”
Said to be the first of its kind, Kiverco’s new system has been designed on a single skid frame chassis and is equipped with a ‘plug and play’ power connection. This allows it to be powered by either a mains electricity supply or a generator.
The plant system is available with range of options that include a trommel screen or waste screen for the removal of fine fractions, an air separation unit for light waste removal and a magnet to remove ferrous metals.
JP Devlin, Kiverco’s area sales manager for the UK, said: “This type of plant will appeal to finance companies as it is easy to decommission, move/sell, and it will recover a healthy return on investment due to the economical price point set for entry-level users.
“There is also strong interest from hire companies who see this as the first ‘static type plant’ that they can hire and move around - it suits the rental market.”
