What they asked us: Can Whitham Mills upgrade our waste management systems for denser output & increased efficiency?

Whitham Mills upgrade yields denser output & increased efficiency

Due to their impressive record, repeat customer Russell Richardson asked Whitham Mills to design an upgrade to their current system. Russell Richardson required an additional baler and a heavy duty conveyor system to be installed in their new premises. Now in their 40th year, Russell Richardson recycles and disposes of over 200 tonnes of paper waste on a weekly basis.

Commissioned in November 2018, the sites new recycling system consists of a fully automatic GB1108F baler fed by a 1200mm wide rubber belt conveyor as well as a heavy duty chain conveyor that feeds the shredder which shreds confidential waste. Equipped by Whitham Mills, the site can now bale round the clock, and produce consistent bale weights of over 620kg at a throughput in excess of 11tph. This is now the third baler installation by completed by Whitham Mills on behalf of Russell Richardson.

Alongside this brand new install Whitham Mills have also been tasked with relocating their existing baler down the road to their new 30,000 sq ft site which sits on the Rotherham-Sheffield border, and then reinstalling and commissioning the existing equipment. Whitham Mills have also supplied a new conveyor system to streamline their materials handling process ensuring an increased efficiency at the new site.

Whitham Mills are constantly on hand to support Russell Richardson in their baling process who have signed up to a service and maintenance contract for the next 12 months post installation to ensure the site is working as efficiently as possible.
