Description

The Wenvoe Concrete Plant has found a perfect way both to reduce disposal costs and to recycle concrete residue.

A one tonne bulk bag is placed in an empty intermediate bulk container. The unit can be positioned under a conveyor wash-out system or truck mixers can discharge wash-out into it. In both cases, the water drains away leaving the concrete residue in the bag.

Once full, the material in the bag consolidates producing a one tonne block - ideal for use as edge protection or to recycle. The bags are easily removed by mechanical means and stored.

Benefits

1.Reduces manual handling

2.Reduces waste costs

3.Providing an ideal way of recycling.
