Recycling firm planning for the future with Kiverco equipment
E. J. Shanley & Son invest in new FT620 feeder trommel and PS122 picking station from Finlay Plant SW
WILTSHIRE-based E.J. Shanley are looking to the future after investing in new cutting-edge mobile waste-recovery plant from Kiverco. Supplied by Finlay Plant SW (part of the Finlay Group of companies), the waste-management firm took delivery of a Kiverco FT620 feeder trommel and PS122 picking station following a successful machine trial.
The new Kiverco units are already helping to delivering increased productivity at the company’s Trowbridge site, allowing the third-generation family business to process waste material from up to 40 skips per day. The machines work 8h a day and are run by a team of five operatives – one feeding material into the trommel and the other four working in the picking station.
The company has a wealth of knowledge and experience within the waste-management industry and is headed by Terry Shanley with his children Paul, Andrew, Keelan and Cymberly all working for the business. As well as the Trowbridge facility, the company also has a site in Warminster.
Keelan Shanley said he is looking forward to moving into new areas with the Kiverco plant. ‘We had the equipment out on trial and it never left the site as we found it so much easier to go through skips and separate the material.
‘It’s been so simple to learn how to use and it is a key addition to the business,’ he commented. ‘The future is recycling, and I think we can do far more with this plant and move into processing different materials.’
Offering high-performance and compact-size benefits, the Kiverco FT620 feeder trommel boasts fast, simple and safe on-site capabilities. Fed by a grab, the machine has a fully enclosed drum screen to minimize noise and dust, as well as interchangeable screen media that separate the fines from waste material.
The Kiverco PS122 insulated picking station offers two to six sorting bays to recover stone and wood and is fitted with PVC windows and doors for optimum comfort, as well as optional air conditioning. It also includes a variable speed fan blower and an overband magnet to recover ferrous metals.
Gareth Johnson, managing director of Finlay Plant SW, said: ‘I’m really pleased that the Kiverco picking station and feeder trommel suit the company’s needs so well and I’m looking forward to working with them in the future.’
