We have the capacity to undertake trial holes and all of the associated testing in order to identify a number of requirements that will detail information such as:
Depth of siltation
Waste Classification Testing
An estimate of the approximate volume of waste to be generated
An estimate of the approximate volume of stone required to be imported
Waste management/disposal is probably the most significant cost of any recycling operation. Therefore, to understand the likely out turn costs for this element of the scheme we take samples and schedule the following chemical testing.
Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC)
Total Solids Analysis
All our materials testing is undertaken by NAMAS and MCERTS accredited laboratories.
The CR Series 500 filter drain recycling machine has been developed following a 6-month development process and is capable of recycling up to 90t of filter drain media per hour. The process is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of recycling filter drains. The benefits of adopting this process include:
Reduction in new quarried materials being taken to site. Reduction in waste materials being taken to a landfill. Reduced HGV movements in and out of lane closures.
The machine has a number of controls that allows the operator to change the speed of the process based on the volume of silt contained within the filter drain itself. This ensures the drainage media placed directly back into service meets the grading specification as stated in Table 5/5 of the SHW (MCHW 1) with all waste products being removed from the site. The process transforms the non-compliant drainage system to its original condition thus ensuring the pavement does not deteriorate prematurely due to water-related deterioration.
