Our design and engineering team are currently busy in our workshop bringing to life two new Bio-Processors. One of which will be the largest processor in our range, the P10, capable of holding 1000kg of food waste, the other is the P250, our compact, bin-sized machine. We are very proud to say that this equipment is fully designed, engineered and manufactured here in Somerset, with only the gearbox coming from outside the U.K.
How the waste is broken down
The Bio-Processor is capable of reducing waste by up to 80% over a 24 hour period. Inside, waste is broken down aerobically using tiny microbes, affectionately known as ‘Little Pigs’. More formally, this process is controlled by Jem Adaptive Logic ™ which intelligently maintains a unique blend of microbes specially optimised to break down your organic materials. This allows for highly effective, robust and efficient operation.
Depending on input material and setting, the end product (digestate) can be put to use in diverse applications; for example, fertiliser, biomass fuel, bio-refining or compost production.
Design & Engineered in Somerset
Our fantastic design and engineering team include Ben, Robin and Jordan. Ben and Robin draw on their expertise and experience to design and draw the equipment complimented by Jordan using his electrical know-how; together, the team realise these drawings turning concepts to creations. The dream team are able to apply these skills to any number of jobs, be it after sales support or project managing complex, bespoke installations. Their skills and experience mean that PRM are more capable than ever to provide, not only equipment, but true turn-key solutions to a huge range of waste and recycling problems.
Other design projects & solutions
We were recently called on by an abattoir that needed a solution to replace their outdated and unreliable system, to send their waste product to its final transport.
Ben got underway with designing a system to meet their needs. This system included a tipping device, screw conveyor, shredder, and pump. These were linked together in one control panel, allowing us to monitor the temperature, tipping device, conveyor and the entire system in one place. The control panel is capable of logging faults, which we are then notified of and can interrogate the system to further fault find.
This was a challenging installation, as the site was located in an early 20th century building with very narrow corridors. All the equipment had to be transported in pieces and assembled on site.
The system has fulfilled the requirements of the customer by providing them with improved efficiency and greater reliability. They process between 16,000 – 20,000 chickens per hour so reliability was paramount to them; if the equipment were to go down, the knock on effect could be huge, and would affect everyone involved in the operation including incoming transport.
