TITLE
Waste cycling from a mill tramp diverter chute
ARTICLE
Description

Clinker from the Tilbury mill tramp metal diverter chute was dropped onto the floor and then swept up by the operator. Although the drop area was protected by a barrier, it looked untidy and gave rise to airborne dust.

The material now falls into a hopper which is emptied by forklift truck. Once the material has been scanned with a hand held metal detector and the tramp metal removed, the good clinker goes back in to the system.

Benefits

1.Reduction in manual handling

2.Improved housekeeping with less work

3.Reduction in the levels of airborne dust

4.Improved recycling of clinker with reduced waste

5.Reduced risk of slips and trips with clinker balls.
