CP Group upgrades existing MSW MRF
HESPERIA, CA, August 27, 2014 – Advance Disposal Company, Inc., a privately owned hauler and MRF operator in Southern California, reopened their newly upgraded MSW MRF featuring equipment and design by CP Group .The grand opening ceremony was held at the end of May.
CP Group worked with Advance Disposal to redesign and retrofit their 21- year old MRF sorting system, which previously handled 20TPH, to now process 50TPH. The MRF is now operating on one extended shift instead of two due to the increased throughput.
“Twenty years ago, Advance Disposal constructed one of the first mixed material processing MRFs in California. When we needed to upgrade, we turned to CP Group because of their experience in mixed waste processing, and ability to integrate the new equipment into our existing system and floor space. They did a fine job of planning the installation so that we were able to continue operations with a minimum of down time,” says Sheila Bath, President of Advance Disposal.
CP Group decommissioned the old equipment which included an infeed conveyor and shaker screen, while leaving the sort station to be reused in the new system. Advance continued to operate the existing system while the new machinery was installed. Operation shutdown time was minimal due to creative design and strategic project planning by the CP Group, and an innovative transitional operations plan by Advance.
The new equipment installed to increase the system throughput and boost material recovery levels includes the CP Metering Drum, CP Trommels, Overbelt Magnets, CP Scalping Screen, CP GlassBreaker Screen, 2 CPScreens with proprietary cam-disc screening technology, Eddy Current Separator, and a Fines Trommel.
“Advance Disposal is a leader in MSW processing and are forward thinkers when it comes to efficiently utilizing the products obtained from the CP System. They are strong in their end user niche and continuously evolving their business model,” says Josh Wagner, CP Project Manager.
