Boge Compressors has revealed that Veolia Environmental Services selected an SF series frequency-controlled screw compressor for use in its purpose-built material recovery facility in Mansfield.

The screw compressor is used to power the optical sorting devices.

The Mansfield MRF is where household items such as plastic bottles, paper and cans are sorted and baled using a mixture of manual and automated sorting technology.

Currently sorting between 1,000 and 1,350 tonnes of recyclable each week, the purpose-built facility requires compressed air to sort the rubbish.

The main job of compressed air within the facility is to power the four optical sorting devices.

These units reflect light off the waste as it passes underneath on a conveyor belt and identifies the size, shape and type of material.

With the use of 64 air jets it will blow the material onto various conveyor belts for further processing.

When the facility was built in 2008, Veolia opted for a Boge SF 150 frequency-controlled screw compressor to meet the estimated compressed air requirements in the most energy efficient manner.

The Boge SF series frequency-controlled screw compressors work strictly in accordance with the compressed air demand by producing the exact volume of compressed air at the pressure required.

Frequency control minimises idling time and evens out air demand fluctuations.

For the Mansfield MRF, this ensures that only the most economical and efficient use of the compressed air is produced regardless of peak or off-peak air demands or fluctuations in recycling levels.
