The rise of the circular economy has added greater importance on the recycling and reprocessing of materials than ever before. Whether it be Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) or plants reprocessing recovered materials, many of the same materials handling challenges experienced in other industries remain.
So, if you’re handling or re-processing materials such as glass, plastics, aggregates, waste, wood, rubber etc, we’re sure we help improve the performance of your key bulk handling and powder processing equipment.

Ensuring conveyors are cleaned effectively, properly aligned and loaded with minimal waste is key to their overall performance. Our belt cleaners, tracking rollers and sealing systems help to maximise uptime through minimising maintenance and housekeeping requirements.
When transferring materials from point-to-point, it is essential to counter the effects of abrasion and impact, otherwise equipment can suffer from poor service life or high levels of maintenance. Our wear liners and bespoke wear parts are designed to ensure that you can continue to keep producing.
Hold-ups, blockages and slow moving materials can constrain the output of your plant. We offer a wide range of flow linings and vibratory products to ensure you achieve the desired throughput from key equipment, such as screens and feeders.
Dust escaping to atmosphere is a health & safety risk to staff and the wasted material can lead to production inefficiencies. Effective dust control through high performance filtration equipment, or dust tight flexible connectors on equipment such as sieves, can contribute significantly to eliminate this unwanted by-product of production.
Due to their size, silos and other similar vessels are often troublesome to maintain, with working at height a regular occurrence. Ensuring that silos perform reliably can be achieved through the application of high quality equipment that’s proven to last, whether that be level control, filter units, PRVs, aerators, vibrators or armoured pipework.
Mixers are key to overall production efficiency, so keeping your mixer in the best of order is a key maintenance goal. Long lasting mixer wear parts and effective mixer cleaning can contribute greatly to the service life of the machine and minimise maintenance intervention.
Starclean saves clients time and money by reducing conveyor downtime, wasted material, manual handling, clean-up time, dust emissions, and health and safety concerns associated with material carryback.
Manufactured by one of Europe’s most respected belt cleaner manufacturers, Starclean incorporates the ingenious twist-swing tensioning mechanism. This ensures optimal blade contact to the belt regardless of individual segment wear for excellent cleaning performance, minimal maintenance and cost effective operation.
The simplicity of the unique quick-release tensioning devices and quick-change, slot-in blade design means site staff can quickly and safely carry out tool-less maintenance. It literally takes seconds to disengage, maintain and re-tension, keeping maintenance costs and downtime to a minimum.
National waste management experts, Biffa, saves 1 hour cleaning and eliminates 16 wheelbarrows of waste per week with STARCLEAN® at Leicester plant.
Starclean belt cleaners improve performance of 32 conveyors at Recycling & Energy Recovery Facility (RERF). Less waste. Downtime and cleaning time reduced.
