      • Municipal Solid Waste

      • Sorting plants for municipal solid waste

        STADLER stands for individually planned, turnkey sorting plants for municipal solid waste with a processing capacity of 40,000 t/year up to high-capacity plants with a capacity of 1,000,000 t/year, such as the one we recently successfully constructed in Spain.

        STADLER experience

        Thanks to over 60 plants realised around the world to date, STADLER possesses broad expertise and a high level of experience in the field of municipal solid waste processing.

        Material properties

        Municipal solid waste consists of all types of waste generated in the household. In addition to organic waste such as leftover food, this also includes a wide variety of recyclable materials. This type of diverse material composition with a correspondingly highly varied density of between 100 and 300 kg/m3 represents a particular challenge for such plants, because it simultaneously demands a high degree of plant flexibility and robustness.

      • Sorting Plants for Dry Mixed Recyclables

        Although disposal of the material essentially takes place in a similar way, the material properties vary from country to country. The fact that STADLER was involved in developing the first plants of this type from the outset is extremely useful in this regard. STADLER is familiar with each material in the individual countries, and knows which plant model will produce the best overall results for the customer in each individual case.

        STADLER experience

        STADLER commissioned the first plant of this type back in 2008. Since then, more than 25 such STADLER sorting plants have gone into operation, with installations in France, England and the USA in particular.

        Material properties

        Nowadays, separation of the organic fraction from recyclable materials takes place in many countries around the world. However, the dry mixed recyclables contain greatly differing components depending on the country. For STADLER, this means it is necessary to devise the best possible overall plant concept for each type of material. The average composition exhibits an approximate density of 80 kg/m3. Since paper and cardboard have by far the highest density in this mixture, the overall density varies depending on the proportion of these two recyclables. Because the proportion of films and plastic trays in the total volume is constantly increasing, both the composition and total density will change in the future.

      • Sorting Plants for Electrical and Electronic Waste

        Sorting plants for the so called "e-waste" are required to satisfy the highest demands: before separating different types of metals and plastics, it is also necessary to detach the valuable materials through shredding and classifying out of the composite of different materials, and subsequently feed them into the recycling loop.

        STADLER experience

        Working in cooperation with weeeSwiss Technology AG (which has been active in the field of electronic and electrical waste for over 25 years now), STADLER develops high-quality sorting plants for electrical waste which are unrivalled in terms of sorting quality and throughput.

          • Robust scraper made from various steel grades or vulcanised rubber depending on the flight design
          • Space-saving SEW bevel gear motors
        • Conveyor type BB

        • The STADLER acceleration conveyor has been specially designed for use with sensor-based sorting technology. Thanks to conveyor speeds that can be precisely controlled, it effectively spreads the flow of material.

          • Special side wall sealing for operation at high conveyor speeds
          • Expansion hood with integrated maintenance platform available as an option
          • Special support rolls and balanced drums for low-vibration operation
          • Space-saving SEW bevel gear motors
        • Conveyor type DB

        • The material is accelerated and straightened. As a result, sensors (not included) detect the material on the conveyor and individual particles can be blown out with a nozzle bar (not included)

          • An endless belt change is possible (observe maintenance clearance)
          • Higher speed for film/paper
          • The standard version includes a slot for a sensor under the belt; optionally an optical sensor can also be used
          • Space-saving SEW bevel gear motor with sliding movement to create space in the area of the conveyor's head end
        • Hood type EH

        • For material and air control in sortingsystems with compressed air discharge of one or two fractions.

          • An adjustable separating splitter allows optimisation of the separation precision
          • One maintenance access point and one maintenance opening are located on both the left and right side of the hood
          • Integrated maintenance platform with fixed position inside the hood
          • Different units and conveyors can be connected to the EH via an adapter.
        • Conveyor type KF

        • Bush conveyor chains allow flows of even heavy and large materials to be transported with ease.

          • The use of sturdy lateral sections and various chain and belt designs enables the STADLER chain conveyor to transport whatever material is required
          • The KF can be used as an infeed conveyor, a baler feed conveyor or a feed hopper, depending on how the angular sections are positioned
          • Space-saving SEW bevel gear motors
          • The drive and return shaft can be removed laterally, forwards or backwards.
        • Conveyor type SO

        • The side wall and belt position have been specially designed to sort material as efficiently as possible directly on the conveyor.

          • Discharge chutes that can be flexibly positioned allow sorting of different fractions
          • The ergonomic design of the frame enables a comfortable working position
          • Adaptable belt speeds for optimum sorting results
          • Space-saving SEW bevel gear motors
        • Conveyor type BU

        • Developed for temporary storage of sorted material fractions, the STADLER storage conveyor has side walls up to 2.5 metres tall.

          • Rolling belt support means heavy materials can be accomodated in the storage area
          • Thanks to robust doors made of steel segments, the entire storage capacity can always be fully utilised
          • Space-saving SEW bevel gear motors
        • Dosing system type DK

        • The material is evenly distributed and thus ensures a constant feeding of the system and higher purity.

          • The system consists of a combination of our DW metering drum and our KF chain conveyor in the bunker version, whereby dosing and storage of the material is made possible
          • Reliable material distribution
          • Large maintenance opening due to moving unit blockages and wraps can be removed even in the filled state
          • The working height of the drum can be adjusted to different heights (100 mm steps)
          • Lateral removal of the rotor body possible
        • Label Remover

        • A shining example of German engineering

          Our powerful label remover processes up to nine tonnes of plastic bottles per hour – achieving a quality standard of up to 80 per cent of labels removed. It features a robust overall construction and is incredibly resistant to impurities.

          Equipped with blades made from high-tensile steel that are attached to the rotor at one end so they can oscillate freely, and to the housing’s inner wall at the other, the label remover processes a mass flow of up to nine tons per hour depending on the particle size and material composition.
