Waste Management

Cranes often work around the clock in fully automatic mode.This is particularly apparent during delivery times at refuse incineration facilities. Blending refuse, serving incineration furnaces and removing the waste ash resulting from several thousand tons of refuse every year places high demands on crane installations and their operators.
In order to operate economically, thermal waste processing installations have to process large quantities of refuse. The cranes that operate in these facilities have to be able to provide high handling rates, reliably and around the clock.

A special requirement for operation in refuse and ash bunkers is active load-sway damping. This is needed because of the mostly very large lifting heights required to prevent the grabs from hitting the bunker walls, which may lead to damage of the installation. In addition, blending and storage operations cannot be carried out automatically at high speed without load-sway damping.

Our cranes, which are individually specified for refuse handling applications, are of optimum design for serving bunkers and pits. They are able to perform all processes fully automatically by means of laser-assisted height measurement. This enables movements to be reduced to a minimum to achieve efficient handling rates.
