Ecohog focus on maximising waste separation and achieving value from waste processing streams through the use of air and magnetic technology.

Through extensive market research, concept design, and product development to find solutions to waste sorting problems the company has developed the Ecohog Windshifter, HogMag Metal Recovery, and Scrap metal downstream ranges which are some of the most efficient separation technology in today’s market. Ecohog aims to help customers find cost-effective solutions whilst still achieving quality separation and where possible aims to improve the efficiency of customers’ existing equipment by equipment enhancement.

Salon Hyötykäyttö Oy is the perfect example of Ecohog separation technologies working in harmony to maximize performance and revenue for customers at a C&D Waste facility.

This C&D waste recycling facility utilizes:

The C&D Waste stockpile is grab fed into the Lindner Urraco shredder for size reduction and densification. It is then delivered to the EST 8220 dual screen Trommel to remove a Fines 0-20mm fraction and a Mid-size 20-90mm fraction. The Fines are stockpiled and the Mid-size and Oversize +90mm fractions travel downstream for further recovery processes.

The Oversize fraction is transferred to the QCS-1200 mobile picking station with an onboard dual-action Blower/Suction Airhog system and Overband magnet. The Airhog system removes light trash material such as Paper, Cardboard, cloth, and foil prior to the picking cabin where this is also a secondary suction hood to remove residual light trash material. The picking cabin features 2-bays for 4-person manual sorting of valuable commodities such as wood, plastic, stone, rubber before the Oversize material is discharged under an overband magnet to recover Ferrous (steel) metals.

The Mid-size fraction is transferred to the THM ECS-2000 to recover residual Ferrous metals (screws, bolts, nails) with the onboard drum magnet and then valuable non-ferrous metals (Al, Cu, Brass) with the 2m wide Eddy Current Separator.

Finally, the residual fraction (non-metallic) from the THM ECS 2000 is fed to the EH1500 SMP Windshifter to separate the heavy stone/aggregate material from light material such as Wood, Plastic, and Fluff that could be used in SRF/RDF supply.

Mr. Mikko Brandt, Managing Director of Salon Hyötykäyttö Oy had this to say “I am very happy with the line, everything has worked well with Ecohog. Ecohog has been very flexible with our requests and we have got a line that works as planned and as promised.”

Tracey McNally, Managing Director of Ecohog Ltd said “We’re really grateful to continue our long-standing with Salon Hyötykäyttö and Luminer and welcomed the opportunity to supply a complete Ecohog C&D plant downstream. This plant has become a flagship reference site for a wide range of Ecohog sorting technologies and showcases our determination to continually work with customers and help generate maximum revenue for them.”

Kari Strandvall, Managing Director of Luminer Oy further commented saying “It has been a pleasure to co-operate with Ecohog and Salon Hyötykäyttö Oy and to be able to deliver this kind of line. The line became just as we planned together with Ecohog and the customer”.

In conclusion, Ecohog has been able to offer full mobile and modular downstream combination of systems to minimize waste material to landfill and maximize revenue for the customer. Please see our video of the machines in operation in Finland Ecohog Machines on C&D Waste Facility in Finland.
