Water is wonderful. After all, we wouldn’t be able to live without it! But there are some places that we just don’t want to see water. Nobody’s happy to stumble upon a flooded basement, for example. Nor is it desirable to see enormous puddles in the yard. And of course, nobody wants to deal with excess water in their waste! Many manufacturers utilize dewatering equipment in order to keep their waste dry and easy to manage. But there are many other great reasons to do it that you may not know about! Here are 5 hidden benefits to employing more dewatering equipment in your waste management process.
For questions about dewatering equipment or anything else to do with your waste compactor, turn to KenBay. We are an experienced company dedicated to proper waste management. Our goal is to lead companies to follow a zero landfill initiative through easy, efficient waste compactors. If you want to know more about KenBay and our zero landfill initiative, visit our website.
Why You Should Use Dewatering Equipment
Ability to Recycle More
At KenBay, we like to talk a lot about reducing the amount of “air” put onto the truck. Well guess what? Water works the same way. The more water is held inside of your waste, the less waste you’re able to fit onto the truck. Use dewatering equipment to save space, allowing you to recycle more when you need to. And you save money as well!
Less Trash to Landfill
One of the great things about dewatering is that it opens the door for opportunities to recycle. When waste is dewatered, it is transformed into a dry filter cake. Usually, that cake makes the waste easier to transport and dispose of. But when the cake is non-toxic, it can also be reused for other purposes. Thus, less trash gets sent off to the landfill overall.
Ability to Separate Plastic Cap From Cardboard Container
Plastic and cardboard can work well together, but they’re not the easiest to get rid of. They must be separated first, and recycled separately. Dewatering equipment can handle it easily!
Don’t Pay to Ship Remnant Ingredients
Little bits of leftovers can get annoying. They’re too small to do anything with, but it’s not worth paying to ship them or dispose of them. Dewatering equipment makes it so you won’t have to worry about that problem anymore!
Cleaner Plant Environment
A clean environment is a safe environment. And having wet, nasty waste everywhere definitely does not make for a clean environment. Turn to dewatering equipment to destroy the sludge, keep things dry, and make your workers happy!
KenBay Can Dewater . . . and So Much More
For dewatering applications the SC 2000 and SC 3000 Screw Compactors provide continuous throughput and are configured for de-packaging/de-watering or for foam densifying. These screw compactors can be an integral part of a system that will make your facility landfill free. The SC 2000/3000 is a low maintenance heavy-duty piece of equipment capable of handling large throughputs of material while still maintaining a high compaction rate continuously throughout the operation.
The output from them is ready for delivery to a Waste-To-Energy (WTE) facility having extracted whatever liquids they contain. The Screw Compactors perform well for de-packaging:
- soft drinks
- BBQ Sauces and ketchups
