Demag Cranes supplies solutions worldwide for refuse processing and recycling. With our many years of experience, we support the operators of refuse processing facilities with industry-specific expertise. Our crane installations are also used for automatically serving stores and bunkers as well as supplying material for further steps in the process.
Fields of application
- Refuse incineration facilities
- Facilities for refuse-derived fuels
Refuse incineration facilities
Process cranes made by Demag Cranes are used for the storage and blending of fuels and to serve furnace lines, which means that they make a major contribution towards the management of the rapidly growing amounts of refuse all over the world. The crane installations can be exactly tailored to meet each customer’s needs:
- as manually controlled cranes
- for semi-automated processes
- as fully automated installations operating 24/7.
For these applications, Demag Cranes supplies its own warehouse management system developed in-house, which, besides control of the crane, also provides visualisation of the installation and automated measurement of the fill levels in the refuse bunker. Operators of these installations also employ crane systems supplied by Demag Cranes for the efficient removal of any ash and slag residue.
Facilities for refuse-derived fuels
Fully automated Demag process cranes play a key role in facilities for recycling refuse-derived fuels, such as plastics or sludge. They ensure that the material is stored and blended as required and also that the furnaces are continuously supplied.
Sorting and recycling
Demag Cranes also supplies the technology needed in facilities that are used for recycling domestic and industrial refuse. Our process cranes perform the handling operations between the individual process steps, such as automated cranes which store incoming refuse and feed it to shredders and composting boxes.
Complete industrial drive solutions from Demag Cranes provide for precise operating motions in our crane installations. Our motors are also used to drive the conveyor belts that are used in recycling facilities to separate the useful materials.
