New Nihot machine does “Stirling” job for Scots recycling firm

New Nihot machine does “Stirling” job for Scots recycling firm

Matpro Machinery has supplied Stirling based Wood Recycling Scotland Ltd with a new Nihot SDS 800i air separator.

The Scottish company, who process recycled timber for use in the board mill industry, required a machine to remove heavy, foreign material such as hard core, ceramics and metals from their feed stock.

The new Nihot SDS uses air, combined with drum technologies, to separate light from heavy material. It stands out on its class by using negative pressure and thereby optimising separation efficiency.

It comes equipped with an integrated dust filter, electrical cabinet and retractable outriggers and the whole unit fits entirely onto a semi-trailer or into a 40’ container.

Ben McQuaid, Managing Director at Matpro Machinery Ltd said: “Unlike its’ competitors, the Nihot SDS 800i uses negative pressure for maximum air separation, which is one of the key selling points of this machine.

“Compared to its’ highly successful predecessor, the new SDSi is more robust, and thanks to the completely new design we believe its’ separation efficiency is unmatched.”

Prior to buying the machine, Matpro Machinery guided Wood Recycling Scotland Ltd in their choice of solution by enabling them to initially send material to a test facility at the Nihot factory in Amsterdam.

The company arranged a trip to the factory so that Wood Recycling Scotland Ltd could witness the material being tested and finally arranged for them to trial the machine on their own site, with their own material.

A one week trial ensued where input and outputs (both heavy and light fractions) were weighed pre and post process.

The new machine provided much better separation results than other machines and also a much cleaner material split than the previously utilised water bath, with a lot less upkeep.

Kenny McLeod, Operations Manager at Wood Recycling Scotland Ltd, commented: “We are delighted with the results we are seeing from the new machine – a much better quality heavy and light fraction.

“The new machine fits perfectly into our existing operation and it has made life a lot easier for us.”Photo 15-09-2016, 10 10 04
