Case Study: Lowmac Alloys

case-study-lowmacLowmac Alloys offer a broad range of recycling services, to companies all over the west of Scotland, from their two main bases at Irvine and Ayr.

The company needed a two-phase upgrade of their existing facility to handle an increasing and diverse workload, which included metal recovery, fines extraction, wood, hardcore, hard plastics, ferrous and non-ferrous materials among others.

This demanded a careful, strategic approach that made best use of the available space and maximised the company’s stockpile capacity. EMS developed and installed a comprehensive that met all of Lowmac’s requirements and now enables the company to process 25 tons per hour.

Their upgraded system includes:

Metering feed hopper
833 Trommel
Overband magnet CP20/100
Overband magnet CP25/120
Density separator
Heavies line – 2-bay picking station
Lights line – 2-bay picking station
