Hey Grinder Guy, are there any new equipment improvements in the industry I should look at? by Dave Whitelaw Good question. We are all busy. Trying to keep up with all the new designs and options for each piece of equipment is a daunting task. But maybe a new improvement that is insignificant to one recycler may be a major cost savings for another. With that in mind, throughout the coming year, I am going to try and do a better job of posting useful and significant improvements on my Askthegrinderguy.com blog. It seems the move toward more efficient electric powered machines continues. Fuel usage per unit has become the major cost factor for everyone. Thus, electric powered equipment is becoming an attractive option. In Oct at the WHEN Recycling Expo in Henrietta, NY, several grinder manufacturers were present. I spent a few minutes with Scott Harrington of Rotochopper discussing the new Rotochopper EC-366. It is Rotochopper’s third generation electric horizontal grinder that features a dual purpose design that can handle both wood and shingles. This unit improves upon their “perfect in one pass” design. After 15 years of electric grinder experience, improvements in wear liners, the unit’s conveyor system,
Morbark’s new grinder wear tips provide users with additional ground tonnage. in the ease with which the grinder is serviced and maintained, have reduced operating costs even further. For more information on the new EC-366, visit www.rotochopper.com Along the line of power sources for recycling equipment, the Komptech line of screeners and recycling equipment has expanded its hybrid power offerings to four product lines. Their Trommel screen and the Multistar screeners are
two of the product lines with available hybrid power. With onboard generators that use 1.5-2 gallons of fuel per hour while screening up to 600 yards per hour, fuel costs are greatly reduced. The Komptech units also come with an optional ground power plug so there is no need to run the generator at sites with available electric power. For more information visit www.Komptech.com or call 720-890-9090.
Morbark has designed a new grinder wear tip that provides a denser end product that renders 2-3 additional tons per load by cutting instead of grabbing the material. The new Razorback Insert can efficiently chop and break down palm waste, reduce wrapping, and increasing run time efficiency. The Razorback works best in medium contaminated materials. It is recommended

In other news, Colorbiotics introduced the Global Equipment Monitoring (GEM) System. The GEM system, developed for use with Colorbiotics Sahara X Series coloring equipment, is a fully customizable computer program that allows operators to automatically meter, monitor and verify colorant and water output. This program elevates the world’s most advanced coloring system to unparalleled levels of efficiency. The GEM system allows a single operator effortless control and monitoring capabilities of either one or several Sahara coloring units from one convenient portal. Therefore, an owner or manager can view the equipment operation in real time from an office chair and make necessary adjustments. For more information about Colorbiotics, Sahara X colorant equipment and GEM quality control
monitoring system, contact Colorbiotics at 888663-6980. In 2012, Amerimulch® introduced the Marksman™ Volume Measuring System. The Marksman is available in two models; Platinum and Gold. The Marksman Gold model constantly measures fluctuating production rates, then calculates and displays the corresponding colorant and water application rates per yard. It can be used on any color unit. The Marksman Platinum model only works in conjunction with the Amerimulch ColorTrom®. The Platinum has all the features of the Marksman Gold model but also automatically adjusts color and water rates. Both units offer the ability to view equipment operation from a PC, a Smartphone or a tablet PC. The operator does not need to make constant adjustments any longer. The Marksman System does it for them, automatically. How cool is that? For more information on Amerimulch and the Marksman Volume Measuring System, call 888-556-3304 or visit www.Amerimulch.com.

Eriez® celebrates 65 years with Dominion-Carolina Sales, Inc. ERIE, PA — 2012 marks the 65th year of partnership between Eriez® and High Point, North Carolina based sales representative company Dominion-Carolina. “Eriez’ partnerships with a number of United States sales representa-
tive companies go back more than 50 years, but our 65 year relationship with Dominion-Carolina is our longest,” explained Charlie Ingram, vice president of Sales and Marketing. The Eriez/DominionCarolina relationship
Reduce Volume and Increase Density
dates back to 1947 when Bob Merwin, son of Eriez founder O.F. Merwin, and Dean Thomas, a retired school teacher who ultimately formed DominionCarolina, initiated the partnership with a handshake. “To think Eriez was just a five year old
company when the partnership started is absolutely amazing,” said Ingram. “The fact that 2012 is the anniversary of Eriez’ 70th year in business as well as our 65th year with DominionCarolina makes both milestones more special.”
When Eriez and Dominion-Carolina began working together, Thomas worked for the Henry Hersey Company. Later, when Thomas was made partner, the manufacturers’ representative company was renamed the Hersey-Thomas Company.

Thomas went on to form his own company, which eventually became Dominion-Carolina. Throughout the years, the relationship between Thomas and Eriez remained strong. Thomas stayed active in the business until his death in 1999. Dominion-Carolina remains a family business with Thomas’ stepson, Jeff Carr, today serving as president. Under Carr’s leadership, the company has expanded and opened branch offices in Richmond, VA, Rock Hill, SC and Smith Mountain Lake, VA. “We feel incredibly grateful and fortunate for this longstanding, successful partnership,” said Ingram. “While both companies have evolved and grown tremendously over the past 65 years, our relationship has remained solid.” According to Ingram, it’s the Eriez/DominionCarolina customers who enjoy the greatest benefits from the 65 year collaboration. He explains, “It’s uncommon to find a field sales organization with so much experience, even longer than most principal companies have existed. Their knowledge and experience is an invaluable asset to our mutual customers.” Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company’s magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries.

Biofuel market calls for more grinding power at T idewater Green by Jon M. Casey

With the demand for biofuel expected to double between 2009 and 2015, it comes as no surprise that regional recycling facilities such as Chesapeake Virginia’s Tidewater Green, have experienced continual growth. Since they began as a shingle recycling business in 2010, it did not take long for Andy Warren, president of Tidewater Green, to see that the wood waste recycling segment of the business was growing at a faster pace than his RAS business was. More importantly, as he realized that there was an immediate outlet for these materials as biofuels for co-gen boiler steam production at power plants and other facilities equipped to burn wood based biofuels, he needed additional sources of supply for the raw materials as well. “At first, we were recycling tear off shingles, as a way of diverting them from local landfills and as a way to help reduce the cost of petroleum based
asphalt mix ingredients for the paving industry,” said Warren. “What we quickly found was that when roofers pulled off the roofing material, a lot of times, they needed to make repairs to the wooden structures underneath. That made for mixed loads of C&D material. So, we began taking that in as well and sorting it. We ground that wood waste as boiler fuel.” Vincent Coffield, a material hauler and regular customer of Andy’s, is a good example of this recycling growth. “I haul discarded roofing material into Tidewater Green from the City of Chesapeake, Virginia Beach and the surrounding counties,” he said. “It wasn’t too long after they opened up, that I began to bring my material here. I used to take it to another recycler in the area, but here, they get me in and out quickly and I find that I have far fewer flat tires!” Warren said that he appreciates customers like

Large metal pieces like the bolts in this barnacle covered marine piling, are routinely removed by hand before the wood is ground into mulch or biofuel. Coffield. It’s because of customers like Coffield, that Tidewater Green’s growth has been ongoing. Since the business opened, Tidewater Green has experienced almost equal growth in wood and shingles alike. When they first started recycling their wood, they would call in a contract grinding company to grind what they had on hand. In 2011 however, Warren could see that it was time for Tidewater Green to consider purchasing its own grinder. That was when they acquired a new Rotochopper® MP 2 grinder. (See Waste Handling Equipment News, July 2011 issue Pg. 3.) A year and one half later, much has changed. “We secured an ongoing source of wood waste from area businesses that service the marine industry here in the Virginia Tidewater region,” said Warren. “We are situated in an excellent location to receive old pier pilings and wood waste from construction work taking place at nearby docks and piers. We receive much of it by barge. With those larger materials coming into our facility, we found that we needed a more powerful grinder, one that could take entire pilings and grind them up into a 2-inch minus product. That is
Tidewater Green 11
when we upgraded to our Rotochopper B66 tracked unit. It makes short work of those pilings.” Warren explained that because he still has the need for a high speed grinder to process the roofing shingles, the Rotochopper is an ideal dual purpose machine. The tracked B66 is perfect. “We currently receive between 10 and 15 loads of tear off asphalt shingles per day,” he said. “We’ve received as many as 29 in one day, but that is at the peak of the roofing season. We found that the tear off shingles and the wood waste that accompanies that, provided the best raw material for our end users,” he said. “We also found that with the biofuel market, wood waste has a far greater potential, especially when it comes to creosote treated wood and lumber like the pilings.” Warren said that he likes to keep a two week stockpile of ground biofuel on hand so he can meet his customer’s needs. Currently, that amounts to approximately 200 tons per week. Because Tidewater Green now has a grinder with the ability to produce that much material in just a day or two, that gives them more flexibility making for a smoother production schedule. He said that when possible, they double grind their wood waste. “When our Komptech Crambo 5000 is available for us to use here, we initially grind the construction wood debris with that machine to reduce the material in size and to remove most of the unwanted nails and metal that comes along with it,” he said. “A slow speed shredder like the Crambo works well for that. We have had that unit from the start. There are times when we have it contracted out on jobsites but when it’s here it’s being used.” “From there, when the stockpile is large enough to grind, we move the Rotochopper over to the material and grind it again to a smaller, desired size. At that point, the material goes out as a mulch product, or as biofuel. When we are not grinding wood, we can move the Rotochopper to the shingle pile and grind the shingles into RAS.” “At other times, we can move it over to our marine piling stockpile and grind those into biofuel as well. It just depends on what we need,” he said. “It’s for that reason that we went with the tracked unit. I just made sense. It is so much easier to move a unit on tracks that we could see that this was the ideal choice. The wheeled unit was nice, but we outgrew that one very quickly.” Warren noted that they still do not have a market for the salt treated lumber, those with the heavy
As part of a two step process, Tidewater Green runs raw wood debris through their Komptech Crambo 5000 to shred the material and to remove unwanted metal. The shredded wood is then run through the Rotochopper for a final grinding. metal components. With the potential for Arsenic and Lead to remain in the ashes from burning wood treated with that kind of waterproofing, there is still the toxic element that makes that wood unmarketable. “We will find a market for that one day,” he said confidently. Andy said that with the increase in business, he has also needed to add a couple of employees to meet the workload. He said that it was especially gratifying to be able to do that during times when other industries are not as fortunate. “We have come a long way from the time that my partner, Dickie Cameron, a former police officer for the Virginia Beach Police Department and I got together,” said Andy. Back then, he owned a dumpster rental company, and he was looking to open a transfer station. Since then, we have evolved into one of the area’s leading resources for wood and shingle waste.” For more information on Tidewater Green, give them a call at 757-487-4736 or visit their website at www.tidewatergreen.com.
This pile of marine pilings will eventually be turned into mulch like the pile that is seen in the distance.

Andy Warren explains how the Rotochopper's dolly system for the tracked B66 grinder, makes moving the unit from one site to another, an easy job.
Andy says that it is amazing to see how many nails the Rotochopper's onboard magnet removes when grinding shingles.

Contractor magazine, and supplementary health insurance just to name a few. LICA offers one of the broadest benefit programs of any trade association its size and it continues to shop for opportunities that increase the value of membership. The decision to add a new benefit program is always based on three primary criteria: • Is it the best value for cost program of its nature?; • Does it offer our members a significant benefit that they will want to take advantage of themselves; and • Does it offer our members the opportunity to expand their own businesses’ program of benefits to their employees? LICA Contractors Safety Manual The purpose of this 160 page comprehensive safety manual is to provide LICA members with recommended safe operating procedures. It outlines essential techniques that help protect people and equipment. The manual is designed to serve as an individual company’s safety program or it can supplement an existing program. It contains toolbox talks, equipment and jobsite inspection forms and much more. The manual is worth thousands of dollars, yet it is FREE to every contractor member. For the contractors’ convenience, a CD
version of the complete manual is included. Club Colors is an added benefit to safety conscious members Through the Club Colors and the LICA partnership, members have access to high visibility safety work wear that helps keep workers safe by making them stand out on the job. The safety gear also provides exceptional branding opportunities for employers since the company’s name can appear on every item, and thus on every employee on the job site. With Club Colors, LICA members have access to ANSI and OSHA certified work wear. LICA members receive a 15 percent discount off all branded items, which encourages employers to use the work wear thus ensuring that both budgetary and safety goals are met. National Convention As a way of helping LICA members network and learn more about the construction industry, LICA hosts a national convention annually. In 2013, representatives from across the country will gather in Savannah, GA February 5-9, the site and date of the next convention. Organizers are confident that the 2013 National Winter Convention will be an unforgettable trip for all who attend. Members will stay at the Marriott Savannah Riverfront, which is with-
in blocks from the Historic District and within minutes of dining and shopping! In addition to the many attractions, members can see on their own, LICA has several tours planned as well. Tybee Island is one stop, where members can see dolphins in their natural habitat. Equipment manufacturer, JCB, will host a tour of their plant as well. The LICA

Instant tramp iron protection with the CH-800 series electric dump valve by Sandvik Sandvik has released the advanced electric dump valve system which is the quickest tramp iron protection system of any cone crusher available on the market. With an astonishing sampling rate of
200 times per second of the hydraulic pressure, this state of the art control and hydraulic system reacts instantly to uncrushable objects, such as tramp iron, drill bits, mill balls, excavator teeth, pieces of
steel or severe packing of fine material in the crushing chamber. The design of the Sandvik HydrosetTM system coupled with the electric dump valve system allows for the quick detection and re-
action to uncrushable objects thus decreasing the risk of internal damage to the crusher. Customer benefits include: 1. Quickest tramp iron protection system of any cone crusher available
on the market which reduces exposure to damaging pressure peaks by over 90 percent. 2. Output signal from the PLC control system notifies the operator that the crushing chamber is opening. Customers can The design of the Sandvik HydrosetTM system coupled with the electric dump valve system allows for the quick detection and reaction to uncrushable objects thus decreasing the risk of internal damage to the crusher.

take corrective actions to remove the unwanted object from their process. 3. The external dump valve is located on the side of the crusher supporting increased safety and easier access during maintenance. “Customers who have already installed the electric dump valve have seen significant improvements in the protection efficiency. The service life of structural components, bearings and liners has increased significantly due to the reduced exposure to pressure peaks,” says Andreas Christoffersson, Product Specialist, Mining cone crushers. “Judging by customer feedback and firm orders already received, we see that the electric dump valve clearly provides value to our customers and gives them peace of mind,” adds Christoffersson. Factory installed electric dump valve kits are available for the CH870, CH890 and CH895 models. A retrofit kit is available for crushers already installed in the field covering the H7800, CH870, H8000, H8000i, H8800 and CH880 models.

Refinements to Vermeer’ s WC2300XL whole tree chipper make it a winner by Jon M. Casey
Vermeer dealer representatives and shoppers had an extensive walk around of the WC2300XL with Brad Van Rheenen.
Page 22 • WASTE HANDLING EQUIPMENT NEWS WEST • February 2013
For visitors who were looking for the latest technology in whole tree chippers at the 2012 WHEN Recycling Expo North, in suburban Rochester, NY
This “before and after” comparison of the infeed areas on the original (top) and improved (bottom) versions of the WC2300XL, shows how the new design will benefit the chipper's owner.
October 24-25, Brad Van Rheenen, Vermeer Environmental solutions specialist, had the ideal answer in the WC2300XL. Introduced in late 2010/early 2011, the WC2300XL was developed primarily for the biofuels industry to satisfy the growing need for a powerful, yet portable whole tree chipper to take into a forest. Since its appearance, the WC2300XL has undergone several refinements to enhance its capabilities and to make it one of the easiest to use and easiest to service chippers on the market. According to Brad, design engineers listened attentively as users of the chipper, shared their early experiences while using the new machine in varying applications. Responding to what they were hearing, the design team went to work to increase the size of the feed intake opening and at the same time, they modified the shape of the infeed area to accommodate “slashy material and tree tops as they enter the chipper. The results have been excellent,” he said. “We doubled the feed roller torque by increasing the diameter of the drum from 19 to 28-inches,” he said. A closer look at the intake and deck area confirmed it. “This chipper can now take in logs up to 23-inches in diameter.” “The increase in the drum size brought the drum closer to the feed chains which make for a more uniform intake of material. The chipper also is equipped with our Ecoidle™ Engine Control System. When that function is selected, the engine speed automatically lowers to 1400 rpm after 30 seconds of inactivity. That helps reduce fuel consumption when not chipping wood.” Taking a walk around the chipper, Brad explained that in conjunction with the new intake design, the “SmartCrush” control system monitors the position of the larger infeed roller. The down pressure remains off until the chains have pulled the material into position and the feed roller has climbed up on the material. It is at this time that the pressure increases to crush the material with large limbs or forks, to bring it securely into the chipper. In this way, the
grapple operator who is feeding the chipper can release the grapple and go on his way to get the next load of material. Brad noted that the six degree slope of the infeed table was designed to lower the “breakover” point where long material first comes in contact with the machine. Longer material can flow smoothly into the chipper, reducing the chance for the tree canopy or limbs to snag on the rear of the machine. While we were at the rear of the unit, Brad pointed out the design of the individually tensioned chains that helps accommodate uneven chain wear. “This helps prolong the life of the chains and the owner only needs to replace the chain that has the most wear. Both chains do not need to be replaced at the same time, since the tension on each chain can be individually adjusted.” “The WC2300XL is available in either the Tier III or Tier 4i (Stage IIIB) 440hp CAT engine option,” he said. “That gives owners the option of choosing the engine package that meets their local governmental requirements.” An interesting feature of the newer design is the replaceable wear parts aspect of the new unit. The high wear, material flow areas all are built with replaceable wear parts. The drum, discharge chute and infeed conveyor chains are all good examples. Pointing to a series of holes designed into the top of the discharge chute, Brad explained how the operator is able to tell when the discharge chute’s inner liner is in need of replacement. “The material will begin to blow out of one of those holes, and at that time, the operator can see that the chute liner has worn through and is in need of replacement.” Brad said the chipper is outfitted with a built-in skidder grab on the tongue. This allows a skid steer loader operator or an excavator operator to move the unit without the need of a truck. The grab point has a park/brake release system that allows the operator to move the unit without reattaching a tow vehicle. Equally important is the chipper’s remote control
feature, which allows one person to operate and load the machine from the loader’s cab. The remote control system also provides real time performance data on the chipper, which allows the operator to make ongoing adjustments on the WC2300XL without leaving the loader.

Chipper assembly line mock-up gives visitors a closer look by Jon M. Casey For most of the workers who rely upon a portable brush chipper as an integral part of their daily tree care business, having an opportunity to see how those chippers are manufactured is an experience that they are not able to enjoy unless it is by seeing a documentary on television or in a YouTube video. This year however, attendees to the TCI Expo in Baltimore, had the opportunity to get a closer look at how Morbark brush chippers are assembled in a hands-on exhibit of how the assembly line at Morbark is laid out and how the machine goes from being a number of specially fabricated parts to become a high quality
brush chipper, on its way to an eager customer. “We wanted this part of our exhibit to be laid out exactly like it is in our plant in Michigan,” said Jim McDaniel who oversees chipper assembly for Morbark. “We wanted to give people who are not able to visit our plant, the opportunity to see how the assemblies come together to form a chipper like the one they might be using every day on the job.” While the layout was much smaller in size than what a visitor might see at the plant, the stages of assembly from the chipper drum with its cutter blades to the housing and mounting on the chipper base were laid out in three separate stages for clear understanding of

Larry Wiggins (beyond units facing camera), helped visitors learn more about how Morbark Chippers are built.
With the chipper subassemblies including the blower fan, chipper housing, chipper base, infeed, yoke assembly and discharge chute in place on the frame, this unit is ready to receive its engine and head off to be painted. Custom colors like the Ravens Football Team purple seen on the unit behind this demo unit are available upon request.
the process. Since several of the raw steel fabrication steps and the welding of those components would not be practical for a display of this kind, nevertheless, visitors could clearly see the progression of the components from basic parts to a subassembly ready for a motor, shields, guards, a fuel tank and paint. Additionally, McDaniel, a Morbark veteran with 24 years of service, said that they wanted to in-
clude the tools, instructions and delivery destinations for some of the “kits” that make up a chipper, so that the visitors could get a feel for the “lean” manufacturing guidelines that Morbark strives to perfect as they build the chippers in their Winn, MI plant. “All of the equipment is Start date driven, on the production schedule,” said McDaniel. “This set up is just like it is in our shop!”
Jim McDaniel was excited about the “Assembly Line” portion of the Morbark exhibit.
