Eriez' Metal Loss Monitor
Eriez' Metal Loss Monitor
The Eriez Metal Loss Monitor (MLM), part of Eriez’ SMART (System Monitoring and Reporting Technology) product line, is a powerful solution that enables operators to determine the relative quantity of valuable metals that are passing through their scrap yard unrecovered. The monitor continually scans the residue stream for metal that has escaped the process and is headed for landfill disposal.
The Eriez Metal Loss Monitor takes the guesswork out of metal recovery, giving users the ability to observe the performance of their system to spot variations over time. With the MLM in place, maintenance issues and adjustment requirements are quickly located. The data gathered also offers beneficial insight needed to properly evaluate whether additional or different separators should be incorporated to reduce metal losses to improve profitability.
The Eriez Metal Loss Monitor can be positioned upstream to provide hand-picking assistance. Alternatively, it can be placed downstream of pickers before the bunker. Downstream positioning gives supervisors the ability to track picker performance, provide incentives and accurately assess how many pickers are necessary. Metal that passes through the monitor produces an alarm signal (horn/beacon) and the event is recorded in a data file.

Showa Best Glove
Green-Dex with Eco Best Technology
The inventors of the world’s first disposable nitrile glove, N-DEX, now bring you the world’s first biodegradable disposable nitrile glove, Green-Dex. Showa Best Glove’s Research & Development reaches a major breakthrough with Eco Best Technology (EBT). EBT accelerates the biodegradation of nitrile in biologically active landfills and anaerobic digesters as validated by independent certified laboratories using internationally recognized test methods. EBT is composed of organic materials designed to make GREEN-DEX attractive to microbial activity. These microorganisms upon consuming the EBT material excrete enzymes that depolymerize the nitrile. The final result is biogases and inert humus.
Odor Absorbing Gel
OMI Industries' Ecosorb™ SprayGel is a broad spectrum odor neutralizer that can be sprayed directly onto the surface of the odor-generating area, such as sludge and landfill materials. The gel combines the powerful odor neutralizing capability of the standard liquid Ecosorb product with a low molecular weight polymer matrix that evaporates over several days. Total elimination of odors coming out of undigested sludge has been seen through this capping process.
Air Cycle Corp.
Air Cycle’s Smash-It pneumatic compactor is powered by compressed air and compacts waste into 55-gallon drums or cubic yard boxes. It produces up to 6,000 lbs. of crushing force, allowing facilities to compact waste to up to 20 percent of its original size. To operate, users place a 55-gallon drum or cubic yard box full of waste on the compactor’s platform. The operator stands next to the machine and places both hands on the OSHA-approved start buttons.
Carlisle Energy Services Inc.
Landfill Closure System
Carlisle Energy Services’ Spectro PowerCap landfill closure system is a dual-purpose system that provides environmental protection while generating clean, solar electricity. The Spectro PowerCap combines the puncture resistance, seam strength and long-term performance characteristics of the company's TPO Geomembrane and the solar electricity performance of SpectroFlex photovoltaic laminates, powered by Uni-Solar. These two components are integrated in a factory controlled environment and finished with a low-profile electrical interconnect system. It is available as a complete turnkey, installed system or as separate components.
Pack-Master In-Drum Compactor
Newstripe announces the improved Pack-Master in-drum compactor with labor-saving accessories. The manually operated Pack-Master will save time and money when disposing of or recycling materials such as paper, paint booth filters, aluminum cans, absorbents, and disposable clothes. The Roll-out Base allows drums to be easily moved from under the compacting plate for adding waste materials to the drum and removing the drums when filled. The Split Barrel enables users to compact waste in disposable liners and then, simply "open" the sides of the barrel to slide out the filled liner. The Sorbent Basket hangs inside any open top 55-gallon drum so users can "wring out" excess fluids from absorbent socks and pads. Fluids can then be reclaimed or disposed of without the mess associated with roller type wringers.
