rinderss & Shredderss / Metal G Grinders Detection n & Magnetic c W Separation Nine y ear s of green waste . One serious grinding success


Ask the Grinder Guy Hey Grinder Guy, what the difference between all these auto feed options? Good question. One of the biggest technological advancements in grinding in the past 10 years, has been these automatic feed systems. They may be called one thing or another, but they all work mostly the same way. In the past, the monitoring of engine rpm made it possible to regulate the feed rate of tub grinders or horizontal grinders or chippers. As the engine rpm slowed to a preset rpm point, the feed system would stop or the tub would stop spinning until the rpm recovered to a higher set rpm, then the feed would start again and production would resume. With the new computerized electronic engines that started 10 years ago or so, the monitoring of engine load and not just engine rpm, made it easier to maximize horsepower and torque of the engine. Instead of the hydraulic feed systems stopping and starting, they would slow as the engine load increased and try to keep the engine working at maximum engine load. This would create maximum production no matter if you were feeding your grinder or chipper with a 1-yard excavator bucket or a 20yard loader bucket. The grinder would take care of itself.

But, one question? When is too much, too much? Working an engine at 100 percent all day every day, sure would wear it out faster. Seems to me we have replaced or rebuilt a lot of engines since these advancements started. I am not an engine expert or engine technician for that matter, but here’s what I know: • Engine Ratings — Engines have 3 or 4 or 5 different horsepower ratings for each engine. They are set based upon your usage and they can be changed; • HP — You cannot tell the difference between 100 and 1050 hp, but your fuel gauge can; • Fuel — You will use more fuel when you use more horsepower; • Heat — The more Horsepower, the hotter the engine, the hotter the fuel, the more fuel you use; • RPM — Really doesn’t matter, it’s the load on the engine that does; and • Warranty — You cannot buy a long enough one. If you do not have the support equipment to continue to keep the engine at 100 percent load all the time, does it really need to run at 100 percent for 20 minutes, or would 66 percent load for an hour be OK? Make a call to your local engine deal-

er and ask a knowledgeable representative for their opinion. Ask about engine ratings, engine loads, torque curves and how they all apply to warranties. Before you buy your next piece of equipment, ask these questions also. I think you will find that running your grinder or chipper at 80 or 90 percent of full rpm will get you a good production rate, at a reasonable fuel rate and extend the life of your engine. There is some variance because some engines maximum rpm are different. One further point against running at full engine load all the time is the temperature of your fuel. The hotter the fuel, the less efficient it is. Which means you will burn more and do less. As you run the engine at maximum horsepower, you are also pumping maximum fuel. The fuel that isn’t used, is returned to the tank. As you continue to run at 100 percent, the engine temperature keeps increasing, which is increasing the temperature of your fuel, which is getting returned to the tank over and over. The temperature of the fuel continues to increase, that is why these engines have fuel coolers. But make no mistake, the harder you run, the more fuel you pump and the hotter the fuel gets, decreasing its efficiency. So whether you are landclearing, making mulch, grinding or chipping, fuel costs you money, and the more you save of it puts money in your pocket.

Andy Rickford takes a load of yard waste to be ground in the Morbark 1200. The day this photo was taken (July 1), Andy's wife Becky gave birth to their daughter, Jordyn Leigh.

When one effort to do so failed, the “Dad started out grinding stumps in the devastating 2004 hurricane season on the Gulf city made a call to Rodd Zorn, owner of Z’s Trees.

Today, less than loader and kept growing from there. He grew the LA. At that time, we were mostly focused on getting debris to area landfills. As we were doing that, I couldn’t help but see the impact the huge grinders and chippers were making everywhere we went. It really changed my thinking about the direction I wanted to take my own business.” Zorn says he came back to North Dakota in June of 2005, made his first chipper purchase shortly afterwards, and started to grow his business around it. In addition to residential tree removal, he found a successful niche removing shelter belts (also called windbreaks — trees that protect farmland from wind and erosion) which had outlived their usefulness. He also bought a small grinder to begin generating and coloring mulch for sale to area customers. Getting Into the Tub Shelter belt removal proved highly successful with Z’s Trees, now running a pair of chippers, and doing as much as five to six miles of belts a single season. But a visit to a friend’s grinding operation in 2010 would change things for Zorn even further. “At that point, I was convinced that chippers were the best type of large scale processing equipment we could have,” he says. “But I kept remembering what I saw down at the Gulf Coast. So when I visited a friend’s operation in Minneapolis to see his Morbark tub grinder at work, it really caused me to rethink things and consider growing the mulch side of the business even further.” Zorn let some of his contacts in the industry — During the summer months, there is a steady demand for the quality mulch that Z's Trees generates from the Z’s Trees 7 debris and yard waste that accumulates.

opened Zorn’s eyes to a whole new world of possibilities for the company. “Having the Morbark Model 1200 allows us to tackle jobs we never could have gotten before,” he says. “For example, municipal landfills throughout the state are quickly filling up. Offering to grind their green waste — and take the material away afterwards, rather than leaving it on site — is a huge benefit to them. Similarly, in Minot, where they’ve just seen some of the worst flooding in history, they are looking at a massive volume of trees which will have to be removed and disposed of. We are hoping to be able to come in, grind those trees, take the mulch and help them avoid clogging their own landfill.” While some of Zorn’s chipped material goes for use by farmers in composting applications or as animal bedding, the majority of it is shipped to the Fibrominn plant in Benson, MN, the first power plant in the U.S. designed to burn poultry litter (with wood chips) as its main source of fuel. Mulch continues to gain in popularity, however, and Zorn likes the direc-

tion they seem to be headed. “When we started out, we were essentially just stockpiling chips on property we own. But I’ve worked hard to establish markets for the material we generate, and feel the Morbark tub grinder will now allow us to shift our focus even more. In fact, I can see us gradually moving away from the residential side of things entirely and possibly even adding a second grinder in a year or so. This is one productive machine, I don’t think there’s anything it can’t grind. We are really excited for what lies ahead for us.” For more information on Z’s Trees, contact them at Phone: 701-789-3653 or 800-470-3083 or online at www.zstreesdakotamulch.com.

both processors like himself and reps for equipment manufacturers — know that he was in the market for a used tub grinder. In the meantime he demoed a number of grinders which did not impress him and did a decent amount of further research into Morbark’s line of tubs. “Not only did I like what I was reading about them, I was also learning that they had a great reputation for outstanding service and support — exactly what I needed. So, in early 2011, when I got a call about a used Morbark 1200 with very low hours on it, I purchased it sight unseen and had it hauled back here to Cooperstown.” Getting the Call Not long after that, Zorn says his father had stopped by the Jamestown Municipal Landfill looking for material for Rodd’s mulch operation. The elder Zorn knew the landfill had been accumulating wood and green waste for better than nine years —the size of the pile at the entrance to the site left no doubt about that-so he dropped off a Z’s Trees business card. Rodd Zorn quickly learned that the landfill had new management in place and their focus was on getting rid of the existing pile and restarting a composting operation which had been unwisely abandoned years before. To do so, they had contracted with a local company to grind the debris. “But we found out they’d been unable to make any progress at all,” he says. “Apparently they were getting killed with maintenance related downtime, so the landfill operator was looking for someone who could come in on short notice and get the job done.” Two things were definitely working in Zorn’s favor: first, he had just taken delivery of the Model 1200, replaced the inserts and had it ready to get to work. Second, an unbelievably wet spring had left the ground so saturated throughout the state that the shelter belt operation was, literally, dead in the water. He called the landfill and agreed to take the job. Grinding Out a Victory Starting work at the landfill site was not as easy as one might think. Zorn says the green waste dropoff area was so full (he guesses that it had to be in excess of 3,000 tons of debris) and so congested that they had to set up on the road just to grind enough material to clear out a space for the tub grinder to operate. “That first week, all we did was clear out areas to work; it was just a logistical nightmare,” he says. “And, keep in mind, residents and commercial customers were still dropping off material while all this was going on. There were many times when I was wishing they could have suspended drop offs for that first couple weeks to allow us to really make some headway, but we still managed to make it work.” Things at the site were made worse by the composition of the material itself. Because the green waste had sat for so long, much of the grass and brush had long since decomposed. That material, combined with the almost non-stop rains in spring, created what appeared to be wood mixed with a thick muddy substance. It all served to make grinding a real challenge. Zorn says a combination of impressive equipment performance and a different approach to feeding the material, helped alleviate many of the problems that had plagued the previous grinding effort. “The 1200 tub has been outstanding right from the moment we brought it to the site,” he says. “It was obviously built for severe duty applications and this more than qualifies for that. But even the best grinder in the world will not be able to handle a steady diet of nothing but muddy material, so we’ve gotten a bit creative in how we feed it. We look around for all the largest pieces of wood debris and make sure that every tubful has a decent mixture of wood and the muddy green waste. That keeps the mill from clogging up, downtime for us has been almost nil, and the customer is impressed with what we’ve been able to do in such a short time. You can’t beat that.” Change of Direction While Z’s Trees now has a full scale mulch operation it runs under the name Dakota Mulch, the material at the landfill is so wet and dirt filled that it has virtually no commercial value. Instead, the landfill operator has chosen to use material from the grinding operation as alternative daily cover for the site. That inaugural grinding operation has, however,

Jim Shoemaker’s expertise in operations makes him “My role is to make sure that the company has processes in place that listen carefully to the market and react quickly.” He cites the recycling industry that has practically reinvented itself in the last eight years. “Materials are no longer looked at as waste, but as revenue.

Maximizing revenue and customer satisfaction with weighing systems in waste handling and recycling applications by Joe Stark, National Account sales manager, Avery Weigh-Tronix Weight is an important factor in waste handling and recycling applications, as both the buying and selling of materials are based upon the weight of the collected items. Weight also impacts a company’s profit goals, customer satisfaction and overall operation

efficiency. Quality scale equipment capable of reliable and repeatable weighing is essential for maintaining effective and reliable waste handling and recycling processes. While there are many scale systems available, selecting the proper equipment for specific waste handling and recycling operations is important. Operators should

examine the type of materials to be handled or recycled, in addition to the potential load weight and legal for trade weighments. For these types of applications, the scale equipment generally used includes truck scales, rail scales, forklift scales and floor scales. All of these systems provide a viable weighing solution, however, each one differs in load capacity and increment size-making some better suited for certain application requirements than others. Truck Scales Truck scales are the primary scale system choice for waste handling and recycling applications, as they are both a versatile and convenient weighing solution. Truck scales can be used to weigh virtually any common material, such as newspaper, cardboard, bottles and various metals, in addition to providing the capability to handle large loads. Truck scales operate by weighing vehicles as they arrive or depart the recycling center. Further, with a minimum increment size of 20-pounds to be legal for trade, truck scales provide accuracy suitable for loads weighing tens of thousands of pounds. Truck scale systems consist of both a rugged

Truck scales are the primary scale system choice for waste handling and recycling applications, as they are both a versatile and convenient weighing solution. platform and a digital instrument to record transactions and display weights. To operate the system, a driver simply stops on the scale and provides an identification number, as well as any other necessary data about the transaction. The vehicle then exits the scale to be loaded or unloaded. Afterward, the truck returns to the scale to acquire an outgoing weighment, and the controller prints a ticket displaying the weight and driver/truckload data, with all collected information stored in the con-

troller’s database. This is an example of a computer controlled ticket printing system. Alternatively, there is also a simple ticket printing system that does not require a computer for operation, or an unattended weighing system. The unattended weighing system is ideal for remote applications or during off times when an operator isn’t present. Rail Scales Rail scales are an ideal weighing solution for heavy commodities. One of the most common applications for rail scales is

scrap metal recycling, as these materials are often bulky and difficult to bundle or sort. Rail scales allow for consistent weighments for transport, using the scale as checkweigher to validate the weight. This maximizes the load and eliminates wasted trips. Rail scales are also available in legal for trade models. For legal for trade weighing above 200,000-pounds, a rail scale is set for a 50pound increment size. Rail scales are modular

Maximizing from 9 decks that are spaced to match up below the axles of the cars to be weighed, or sections of the instrumented rail that can be installed right on the existing ties and ballast. Rail scales can be configured for static or in-motion weighing applications. Many systems employ the use of RFID tags and readers for more complete data tracking. Further, besides producing total car weights, rail scales can also provide readings for individual trucks, axles and even wheels. Forklift Scales Forklift scales are an effective weighing solution for waste handling and recycling applications, allowing operators to weigh bundled and palletized recycled materials en route. This expedites operations by permitting forklift drivers to take commodities directly to storage upon delivery, while tracking the weight, origin and storage location during transport resulting in instantaneous data acquisition to improve billing and inventory management. Forklift scales are also a compact weighing solution, making them suitable for busy, crowded recycling yards. This makes them sufficient for smaller loads, while providing non-legal and legal for trade weighing. Forklift scales are capable of weighing up to 16,000pounds — making them ideal for a wide range of applications. Delivering a five pound graduation on smaller loads up to 5,000-pounds, forklift scales are especially well suited for items such as plastic and glass. Forklift scales consist of a scale unit bolted onto a forklift carriage, which utilizes electronic weight sensors to deliver reliable weighing — even if the forklift mast is tilted or the pallet load is off center. The sensors can also compensate for inconsistent weighing conditions, such as operating the forklift on uneven ground. The forklift driver generally uses an in-cab instrument to manage data collection and communicate weight data to the center’s computers. Floor Scales For commodities with a higher per pound value, such as aluminum cans, fine metals and copper, floor scales deliver high accuracy weigh-

ing in a low profile, easily accessible design. These scales offer a more finite one pound graduation, making them ideal in applications where even small variations or inconsistencies can make a huge difference to the bottom line. Available in a wide range of platform sizes and capacities up to 50,000pounds, floor scales provide flexibility for diverse weighing applications. Generally featuring a non-slip scale surface

and sturdy feet, combined with a low profile or pit mounted options, floor scales ensure that the loading, weighing and unloading processes are as risk free as possible.

Maximizing from 10 Floor scales are usually centrally located at a recycling center, so that forklift drivers and other personnel can access the scale as conveniently as possible. A forklift driver stops on the scale or sets a pallet/container on the scale so that the load weight can be derived. The scale system may include a simple indicator that allows the operator to record and electronically print the captured weight information. This data collection and documentation process may also be automated through the use of a more sophisticated weight indicator such as one that incorporates bar code scanners to record the product ID for each load and a WiFi interface to communicate weighments to a PC data collection system. Many floor scales come equipped with ramps — often one on each side — as well as in-

ground models to help facilitate motorized vehicle access and accommodate various traffic patterns. While forklift drivers may need to adjust their routes and/or wait their turn to access the scale, when profits from materials this valuable are at stake, many recyclers agree that it’s worth the wait. In the Field Straight line recycling, also known has single stream recycling, is one type of recycling application in the construction waste industry that requires weighing. Instead of requiring customers to sort their waste individually, users are able to throw all of their waste together in one bin. Then, waste companies collect the bins and sort them at their facility using truck scales, rail scales, forklift scales and floor scales.

TCIA Expo exceeds expectations HARTFORD, CT — With the advent of a huge early season wet snowfall that dumped a number of inches on areas in New York and New England, the TCIA Expo pushed on. With many out of power due to the storm, including areas in and around Hartford, the TCIA Expo was a big success. Many attendees came to participate in the five day affair taking in two day Pre-Conference workshops along with three days of Conference Industry Training and Information sessions, Conference Forums and the TCIA Trade Show. Attendance was much better than expected and highly upbeat given the conditions left by the storm. For information on the 2012 TCIA Expo call 800-733-2622 or look for the expo on the web at expo.tcia.org.

Maximizing from 11 In addition to straight line recycling, many companies are using portable truck scales for demolition and site maintenance. For example, a company may purchase a used facility site for their business. To prep the facility by either tearing old material down or performing site cleanup, companies use portable truck scales to load and transport materials. This

not only provides a convenient, mobile weighing solution but is also much cheaper than installing multiple, permanent scale systems. For construction and demolition recycling, a facility may incorporate truck scales to effectively weigh materials. For instance, the facility may place one scale outdoors, which is used to weigh trucks loaded with mixed

materials, and another scale may be located indoors to weigh all of the sorted materials. The empty truck is placed on the scale and loaded to capacity. To facilitate simple and accurate documentation, keep track of sorted materials and customer billing, both scales can be directly linked to a PC software system. By utilizing two truck scales, operators experi-

ence fast in/out times for all vehicles, eliminating long lines to the weigh station and operation downtime. This also allows users to maximize the number of loads weighed in a given amount of time, ultimately optimizing overall profits, while in turn providing an eco-friendly weighing operation. Additionally, with some scales capable of directly connect-

ing to custom software, this allows for fast and accurate data collection. Before scales offered this feature, companies would have to print out each transaction and then reenter it into their program manually increasing the potential for human error. This may lead to inaccurate invoices or customer dissatisfaction. Continuous, up to date documentation also permits all personnel to view data on or off the site. Moving Forward With the waste handling and recycling industry relying on not only durable and reliable weighing equipment, but also equipment that provides a lower cost of ownership, it is important for operators to select a scale that will fit their application requirements. By assessing application needs, in addition to a specific scale’s load capacity and features, a weighing system can provide accurate and efficient documentation to optimize profits and improve operations.

This allows recycling companies to free up labor and equipment to expand other services without a budget increase. Further, this process can actually decrease trash tonnage and increase recycling tonnage. On the customer end, straight line recycling makes it easier to adopt sustainable recycling habits, without creating additional work.

Komptech armors up: New heavy duty Crambo developed to meet extreme demands

The Crambo HD is super tough. With 10 percent more horsepower, armored drum, armored teeth, heavy duty gear box and heavy duty drum bearing, it can chew through pretty much anything that enters its hungry maw. Since its beginnings in 1992, Komptech has been dedicated to customer value. The company has always developed its machines in close consultation with customers, and been quick to create solutions to their needs. Take the Crambo low speed, high torque shredder. The Crambo was designed to shred whatever came its way, including logs and stumps. Satisfied customers the world over attest to its efficiency at turning big pieces of

wood into tiny ones, and many Crambos eat a steady diet of stumps. Now, not all stumps are equal. There are stumps from regular forestry — from ground long ago cleared of rocks, where trees are harvested before they get too old, and where everything is generally under control. And then there are Ken’s stumps. Ken Newman, general manager of Royal Oak Farms LLC, is a composter in central Virginia.

He needed a shredder that would handle stumps from land clearing. After doing a lot of homework and field testing, he settled on a Komptech Crambo as the toughest, most capable machine available, and started running land cleared waste wood through it. Ken’s stumps are “wild,” from hardwoods that grew where the seed happened to fall, sometimes around rocks or even old pieces of metal,

very big and very tough. Komptech looked at the new challenge with interest. After all, central Vir-

Specialty C&D experts enjoy the challenge of difficult jobs by Jon M. Casey

Page 18 • WASTE HANDLING EQUIPMENT NEWS WEST • January 2012

Recently, after having had the opportunity to hear a presentation given by EnviroVantage™ president, Scott Knightly, at the C&D Recycling Forum, in Ellicott City, MD, WHEN traveled to Epping, NH for a one on one visit with this interesting, innovative executive. Knightly, welcomed us as he explained what goes into the preparation and planning of the difficult remediation and C&D work that they do. This expertise has made his company an industry leader. Knightly explained that he began his business as a summer job, when he attended the University of New Hampshire. That was in 1985. There he was studying to earn a degree in business, at the Whitmore School of Business. He said that he began as a summer painting contractor and found that he needed to deal with lead issues in the old paint that he was replacing. Knightly said that it didn’t take him long to do the research he needed to become his own lead abatement firm. He wanted to save the time, money and effort, rather than having to rely upon other contractors to do the work. More importantly, there were none in the state at that time. “I wrote a business plan in 1984, based on the current lead laws that were in place in the state of

Maryland,” he said. “I worked my way on up from there. We incorporated in 1985.” Knightly said that he and his company vice president, Scott Sansoucie, started working together and have been at it ever since. Most of Knightly’s crew members have been with him for 15 or more years as well. “That helps to make my job easier,” he said. Knightly chuckles when he recounts the story of the company’s beginnings, because he said that he received a B minus from his professor for this business plan that he wrote at that time. However, when he received a “Business of the Year” award for his efforts, he delighted in inviting his college professor, who in fact attended the ceremony following Knightly’s request. “It was a lot of fun,” he said. Today, EnviroVantage is nationally renowned. “Over time, as our business matured, we have found that it serves us best if we are able to do all of the work that is necessary to complete a job,” he said. “We found that we had to be a mold, lead, asbestos, demolition, hazardous waste kind of company, to compete. So we cross train all of our employees so that they are able to do all of those things, so when they walk onto a project, the general contractor does not need five separate companies to do specialized

Scott Knightly, president of EnviroVantage, enjoys the challenges that environmental cleanup projects offer his company. work. We can do it all.” “If we need to remove the boiler and its asbestos, we take it. If we need to remove old sheetrock, we can. If we need to lead or asbestos remediation to provide a clean environment, we can do that as well. We specialize in mill abatement work, where old buildings are cleaned out and restored with new interiors and new windows, and are usable as offices or condominiums or whatever the general contractor is hired to do. We can be very cost competitive because we can do it all and turn over a clean work environment for the rest of the trades.” He said that more importantly, they have the experience to know what is needed at the various stages of the job. That helps cut costs and improve overall efficiency. The removal and re-installation of windows is just one example. “We have become one of the largest window compaAn aerial photograph of the Kingswood Regional Vocational High School in Wolfeboro, NH, shows how busy this jobsite is during a typical school day.

nies in the area because we design our jobs to include re-doing the windows right away rather than boarding the openings up after the old windows are removed,” he said. “Instead of waiting for the new windows, we already have them in place and ready to install. That saves time and money.” Knightly recalls that he could see what was coming in the way of abatement regulations and the need for precise planning when it comes to C&D work in specialized environments like those that require extensive sound or dust control to help protect the nearby environment of the project. He said that in the early years of his work, he helped write the lead laws in New Hampshire. “As a result, our company was issued the first license for lead abatement in the state, C001.” In projects like hospitals, libraries, schools and other work that calls for extra preventative measures, EnviroVantage has the trained personnel and experience to get the job done properly the first time. One job that currently fits this description is work going on at the Kingswood Regional Vocational High School in Wolfeboro, NH. “On a job like Kingswood, if we hadn’t had 128 people working on the job site, working seven days per week, Kingswood would not have made the schedule that they were on,” he noted. “Because of the kind of work that it was, we needed to do much of the internal demo work with sludge hammers. We needed 100 sludge hammers so our purchasing person went out and got us 100 sledge hammers!” “Projects like those require the jobsite be in the condition that the GC needs to do the remainder of the work that needs to take place once the demo and abatement work is completed. Hospitals are the same way. When an operating room needs to be demoed and replaced with a new one (while the other operating rooms are still up and running), specialty demo work becomes the norm.” Knightly said that since then, he has attempted to be on the cutting edge of C&D and abatement contracting. In this way, he believes that customers will think of his company first when they find that they have a need for this kind of work. EnviroVantage specializes in doing difficult jobs under challenging circumstances. “We use equipment like our mobile VecLoader®, a self-contained, trailer mounted HEPA vacuum for removing asbestos, lead, debris or bird guano and other unwanted material,” he said. “It disposes of those unwanted items directly into waste containers. That saves labor, time and material.” “The harder the job, the better,” he said. “We have done work nationwide. We have even done work on a military base the Azore Islands of Portugal. We trained the local people before starting the work, rather than attempting to bring our people to the job over there. We were not able to bring enough of our people over there to do the job, so we sent instructors. They trained the local workers and the locals earned their certificates. Then, we hired them.” With the capability of handling asbestos, lead, mold and other high risk materials, and offering the assurance of experience of more than two decades of success, EnviroVantage presents a level of skill for customers who require construction demolition projects not commonly met by the majority of C&D businesses in the marketplace. Many of the jobs that EnviroVantage has to do are considered fast track jobs, some that need to be completed in what would seem to be impossibly short schedule. “We thrive on that,” he said. “We figure out what needs to be done and then we do it! Every job these days seems to be a fast track project, so being able to handle multiple tasks such as environmental and abatement on the same project, helps us to complete all aspects of the job in a contained environment, and complete the project on time and within budget. When others say, ‘we can’t, we figure it out and we say, we can!’” For more information on EnviroVantage, visit their website at www.EnviroVantage.com or by calling them at 800640-5323.
