BHS mixers in use at the ambitious "Pier 55" project in New York
At the former Pier 55 along the Hudson River in New York, a bed of concrete tulips now rises out of the water: 132 of these precast tulip elements, mounted on 267 prestressed concrete piles, form a 2.4-ha artificial island and are the new eye-catcher of the waterfront. For the ambitious project, precast producer and supplier of the concrete flowers Fort Miller Co., Inc. used the proven mixing technology of BHS-Sonthofen – two BHS twin-shaft batch mixers of type DKXS 3,00 ensured concrete of the highest quality.
BHS rotor impact mill at Eqiom: Two decades and going strong
In a sand pit in the eastern French town of Arceau, half an hour's drive from Dijon, the building materials manufacturer EQIOM quarries stones for sand production. The company has been relying on crushing technology from BHS-Sonthofen for over 20 years. And due to the strong performance of the BHS rotor impact mill, there is no end in sight.
Chemical recycling powers the circular economy
Chemical recycling offers help to solve the problem of plastic pollution. Some companies have taken on this task and developed various processes to reintegrate used plastics into the circular economy. Focusing on PET (polyethylene terephthalate) as one of the top three plastics produced worldwide, these processes upcycle plastic waste into virgin grade materials. Filtration technology from BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology plays the key role in the purity of the products from which virgin PET is made.
Long-Life service contract for high machine availability at recycling company in Austria
Wear parts that aren’t made the manufacturer of a machine often promise to be a more cost-effective alternative to the original spare parts. However, they also pose risks to a continuous production process in the long run. Frequently, these spare parts are inferior to the original – not only in terms of quality, but also in terms of service, maintenance and availability. METRAN Rohstoff-Aufbereitungs GmbH therefore opted for a BHS LONG-LIFE service contract for its two rotor impact mills of type RPMV 1113 in 2022.
Turning waste into energy with the BHS universal shredder in Romania
Sustainable use of residual materials has become economically and ecologically indispensable for many industrial processes. In Romania, German-based concrete producer Heidelberg Cement therefore looked for fuels derived from household waste. The company turned to local waste recycler Pacos, where a universal shredder (type NGU) from BHS-Sonthofen has recently been installed to produce RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel)- fractions. The implementation was quick and straightforward – due to the full-service support of BHS-Sonthofen and its local partner CTE Solution.
Crushed it: Transforming waste into energy with the BHS Biogrinder
Green energy is not all the same: Indian company Mithras Green Technology uses the Biogrinder of type RBG 08 from BHS-Sonthofen to produce sustainable energy solutions from organic municipal waste. Now the company not only saves valuable resources, but also a lot of time.
