Processing of aluminium scrap with a rotor shredder

April 2021
For the processing of aluminium scrap, a specialized waste management company in southern Germany has opted for a Rotorshredder (type RS) from BHS-Sonthofen. The rotor shredder not only processes the aluminium scrap but also optimally breaks up composites, which results in fractions with a high degree of purity.

Concassage fin en péninsule arabique

January 2021
La carrière de Khor Khuwair, exploitée par la société Stevin Rock aux Émirats arabes unis, utilise depuis deux ans deux concasseurs à axe vertical BHS-Sonthofen de type RSMX pour corriger la forme des sables. Ces derniers sont utilisés en quantité pour produire des bétons à hautes performances dans de nombreux projets de la péninsule arabique.

Continuous production for major infrastructure project

January 2021
Despite Covid-19 safety protocols, work continues on schedule at one of the highest volume precast, prestressed concrete yards in North America: the Dragados-Flatiron Joint Venture (DFJV) Pre-Cast Facility in Hanford, California. Hanford Pre-Cast Facility crews are on a tight schedule to complete the 40-acre major infrastructure project by February 2022. Within a total of four years, the contractors are fabricating nearly 2,400 California Wide Flange (CWF) girders, 90 tub girders and 12,000-plus deck panels. In order to achieve this, DFJV built a batch plant for the production of self-consolidating type mixes, combining a Vince Hagan HT Haganator with a BHS-Sonthofen twin-shaft mixer, the latter assuring short, but very robust cycles to yield high-flow concretes exhibiting 20-in. spreads with zero aggregate segregation.

Recovering valuable materials - Safely avoiding hazards during the recycling of lithium-ion batteries

December 2020
BHS-Sonthofen is refining their innovative process for the recycling of spent batteries. It reliably prevents fires and the release of hazardous gases, as the crusher process is kept gas-tight all the way until the dryer, which is where the electrolytes are evaporated. This process is suitable for automobile batteries as well as lithium-ion and other household batteries. The resulting products are ready to be sold.

Recycling gypsum wallboard: Turning construction waste into a chemically-pure resource

November 2020
EU regulations, the reduction in FGD gypsum from lower coal use and increasing construction are among the many reasons that wallboard recycling is becoming more attractive. However, the process needs to be cost-efficient. To this end, BHS-Sonthofen has developed a process that entails two crushing stages. This even makes it possible to recycle any adhering impurities.

Filtering with great flexibility

November 2020
Instability on markets and greater frequency of product changes are two of several trends that promote the demand for flexible systems in the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Modular production systems enable shorter market introduction times and accelerated engineering phases. BHS-Sonthofen now has implemented a new plant concept for solid-liquid separation. The result is a modular pilot plant that includes a rotary pressure filter.
