Develop a system for processing & recycling waste product.
Wilbartec developed an environmentally friendly method of processing tap hole clay waste product that had passed its shelf life.
The client had accumulated approximately 2000 tons of tap hole clay waste product and required a way of having it processed safely.
The system developed by Wilbartec, allowed for the product to be heat treated, so as to remove and neutralise any volatile components (i.e. phenols), and subsequently crush the material into granules. The resultant mix could then be used in other applications within the steelmaking process.
The desired outcome was achieved for the client. In lieu of the cost of dumping the waste material, the client is now able to process and re-use the material.
