The UK produces approximately 26m tonnes of waste a year with a large proportion of it heading for recycling plants. Recycling is all about separation, sorting, shredding, and baling. Dividing it all up into glass recycling, plastic recycling, paper, non-ferrous and ferrous metal recycling requires specialist production lines, driven by chain.
A harsh environment like a recycling plant needs tough chains to cope. It's essential that they are manufactured to a very high tolerance to ensure a longer working life. FBkc makes hundreds of steel slats of different lengths and forms which, when connected to chain either side, convey recycled product and baled waste up inclines and through the various processes. FBkc welded pin and bush chain is particularly designed to stand up to the rigours of constant use.
