North West Recycling is now the first company in the UK to benefit from the ground-breaking shredding technology of Lindner’s latest model, “The Polaris” following months of discussion and investigation with leading shredding consultants Mach Tech Services, based in Manchester, and global shredding-tech specialist Lindner, whose headquarters are in Austria.
North West Recycling, our large waste recycling plant, which operates alongside sister company Brampton Skip Hire on our 16 acre site at Kingmoor Park, Carlisle, is constantly seeking to improve and innovate when it comes to the technology employed in recycling - and products created via recycling. As such, in 2016 we approached Mach Tech Services – Lindner’s UK distributors, with a view to sourcing the best solution in one-step shredding. The brief was to source a machine which would provide maximum throughput and minimum oversize product, yielding a material suitable for solid recovered fuel (SRF) processing. As luck would have it, Lindner were in the throes of developing such a machine, which they had named “The Polaris”.
The Polaris was everything we were seeking – a highly specialised single shaft shredder with enormous transmission power. The universal shredder, whilst incredibly sturdy in design, also boasted exceptional low operating costs.
The subsequent delivery of the Polaris has proven to be an exciting new stage in innovation for North West Recycling, Mach Tech and Lindner. Recently, North West Recycling was pleased to host an independent group of academics from Austrian university “Montan” who put the Polaris through a vigorous testing regime. The results have proven the outstanding performance and technology of this one-step shredding solution and the group could not be happier.
General Manager Dave Bamber said “North West Recycling is delighted with the Polaris and the relationship developed between ourselves, Mach Tech and Lindner. This is a great new venture for our organisation. We are proud to be the first in the UK to use The Polaris – and launch the machine formally to the UK market”.
