A northern Midwest recycling company needed to improve their initial screening at their transfer station. The unit they had in service was proving very costly in spare parts and down time, and the efficiency of the screening was low. The end user at the landfill also had complaints that too much large material was going through.
The General Kinematics FINGER-SCREEN™ Vibratory Conveyor provides the necessary action to screen the fines out of the scrap and allows for greater efficiency in screening. Sales proposal drawings were provided early in the project and the customer also visited several existing operations near General Kinematics headquarters in Crystal Lake, IL to see them in action.
The customer purchased a General Kinematics FINGER-SCREEN™ to replace their existing screen and put it into service right away. Within days, General Kinematics received praise from the customer for how well the unit was running, how little maintenance was required, and how quiet the unit ran. The end-user at the landfill was also impressed with the quality of the fines that were being sent to them from the transfer station.
The screen has been in service for six months now with good reliability and low maintenance. The facility staff, from the VP of Operations to the operators of the equipment have repeatedly commended General Kinematics for providing them with equipment that works – without the downtime and maintenance problems associated with their previous unit. The customer is now looking into the purchase of a ‘Portable” sorting station for their landfill operation due to the success of the FINGER-SCREEN™ that was installed at their transfer station.
