Eirich Industrial mixers for the Environmental Protection

Eirich Industrial Mixers for the Environmental Protection industry, available in South Africa exclusively through Birkenmayer, makes it possible to treat residual materials or recycle valuable resources with a single machine.

We offer tried and tested mixing solutions at the highest technical level for:

  • Mechanical waste processing
  • Recovery and recycling of valuable substances
  • Treatment plants for residue from waste incineration and power stations

The Evactherm® and Evacmix® processes have proven particularly successful in applications for processing slurries and lumpy materials.

  • Evacmix® is for processes in which de-aeration is used to achieve compounds with a particularly high density.
  • Evactherm® is for thermal and reactive processes which have been very successful at a global level.
  • Evacdry® is a technique for thermal and mechanical treatment of environmentally problematic substances.

Vacuum mixers are available with a usable volume ranging from 10 L to 7 000 L.

Eirich industrial mixers for environmental protection have a number of environmentally-protective applications:

  • Dusts/filter dusts: The dust is bound through agglomeration or pelletisation to optimise recycling, handling, transport, storage and depositing in landfills.
  • Ashes: The ashes are conditioned through processes of mixing, cooling, reaction, dust binding and degassing. They are then recycled as building material or deposited in landfills.
  • Slurries/filter cake: This provides conditioning through mixing/homogenisation, drying, granulating for recycling and continued use in thermal processes, volume and weight reduction or processing into a condition suitable for depositing in a landfill.
  • Secondary fuels: Mixing/homogenisation under inert gas condition of solvent-containing materials with the help of carrier substances like sawdust.
  • Gypsum: Can be conditioned for reuse in the building materials industry.

Birkenmayer’s industrial processing solutions include brick making machines and block making machines. It is also the sole South African supplier of Hydronix moisture meters, which use industry-leading digital microwave sensor technology to accurately measure and control moisture for a consistent, high-quality mix.

Eirich – a global leader in innovation

  • A new Eirich intensive mixer, designed for a production rate of 120 t/h ready-to-use sand, can double the amount of recycled sand and effectively reduce the generation of foundry waste.
  • The avoidance and use of foundry wastes is an excellent practical example of effective environmental protection.
  • On average some 97% of sand used in a moulding process can be recycled – provided that suitable equipment is used.
