The companies say the partnership will help their customers lower operating costs and achieve higher diversion rates as a result of TKPL’s waste management equipment.
TKPL, which focuses on commercial, industrial and waste-to-energy customers, manufacturers the Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer (KP), a system that the company says is capable of destroying the most demanding of waste materials. It deconstructs large volumes of waste and other materials into a fine homogeneous fluff or shatters them into small predefined particle sizes, depending on the feedstock.
“All other waste processors — mainly chippers, cutters, grinders, shredders and hammer mills — break down waste for compaction or further processing with a direct contact cutting and shearing action,” says “Richard Stevens, EVP business development for TKPL. “Our KP creates numerous high-velocity tornadoes within the mill using advanced aerodynamic principles. The result is that billions of collisions take place at velocities approaching the speed of sound, causing rapid and violent self-attrition into small high surface area particles — ideal for subsequent conversion to energy or dense compaction into the smallest possible volume.”
