Many industries rely on heavy and lengthy rubber and steel belts to function. Unfortunately, many are discarded and pile up, are abandoned or collect in landfills, causing harm to our environment. Salvadori has innovative solutions created specifically for conveyor belts.
THE WASTE IN CONVEYOR BELTS
Kilometres of heavy giant belts used as transportation in mines, quarries and construction sites, are difficult to handle and process.
Salvadori has designed equipment, which can tackle these challenging conditions and deliver great results using our three Phase process.
Phase I. DOWNSIZING
Specifically, designed Salvadori equipment cut the conveyor belts, regardless of the build-up, weight and size for, both reels and in linear pieces. The equipment downsizes the belts into pieces that can be easily handled in the following recycling steps (shredding, energy recovery, pyrolysis).
Phase II. SHREDDING
The shredding plants process the belt pieces to separate their materials: steel for foundries, textile fibres and rubber in the form of crumb or dust that can be further processed to produce a wide range of recycled products.
Phase III. TECHNICAL Products PRODUCTION
Salvadori moulding and colouring plants transform the crumb rubber and dust - into an unlimited number of innovate new products. These include, sports surface to playground flooring, from acoustic insulating sleeves to urban furniture, synthetic mulch, infill for artificial turf sports fields, and rubber encased rail transport components.
