Canadian recycling equipment manufacturer, Machinex, has entered into an alliance with Dorset, UK based glass processing equipment specialist, Krysteline Technologies for the introduction of its glass Implosion technology and associated equipment within the North American marketplace.

According to Machinex the strategic distributorship has been formed to provide complementary equipment to its established range of Material Recycling Facilities (MRF) and material handling technologies, and will see Kysteline technology manufactured and distributed from Machinex’s factory.

The Krysteline technology was said to be capable of significantly enhancing the glass recovery process within an MRF.

However, Kyrsteline’s Implosion process is not the only technology on offer though the deal. Machinex said that the two firms will be able to offer a full range of glass clean-up systems specifically designed for MRFs including a full range of bulk handling equipment incorporating air density clean-up and screeners to cover all sizes of glass.

In addition to its range of technologies, Krysteline was also said to be able assist as required with recovered glass commodities trading.

Machinex added that in addition to the MRF clean-up equipment, it will be able to offer is a range of glass purification systems and technologies for the removal of all metals including non-conductive material.

The Pyro Drier focuses on the removal of non-glass contaminates, high speed low energy Cascade Imploders for resizing glass, high capacity minerals screeners as well as robotic packaging systems.

The Canadian firm said that the deal will enable it to offer bespoke solutions in North American which allow for all recovered glass to be transformed economically for use in not only remelt but also such applications as water filtration, sport turf dressing, expendable abrasive and powders.

“For us at Machinex the challenges of processing, recovery and the clean-up of glass has always been determined by the value of glass for re-melt,” explained Pierre Paré, CEO of Machinex. “The market conditions for glass have always been challenging due to the high haulage costs, stringent quality standards and colour disparity dominating strategies and in many cases legislation.”

“The Krysteline technology interprets glass in a different way allowing for a more consistent value to be achieved on all recovered glass, no matter its size or colour,” he continued. “This is great news for the remelt industry as well as other emerging applications.”

Steve Whettingsteel CEO of Krysteline Technologies commented: “For many years we have sought the right strategic partner for our products in North America. The diverse market sectors and the continent’s sheer scale can be a daunting prospect for foreign companies. Our strategic alliance allows for us to build our equipment locally, reducing costs, decreasing delivery times and of course creating long term sustainable employment.”
