Siltbuster’s Innovative WT-250 launched on the World Market in Collaboration with Doppstadt

South Wales based company Siltbuster Limited recently launched it’s range of Gritbuster Recycling Machines on the worldwide stage at the EXPO show organised by materials recycling specialist Doppstadt. The show at Doppstadt‘s Calbe manufacturing facility in Germany was used to not only celebrate the Company’s 50th birthday but to also introduce a new range of products to it’s international distributor network and key clients from around the world.

As part of the show Doppstadt introduced its new range of water based separation technologies designed to recover material to the highest possible quality.
In addition to water treatment technology in action at the show, Siltbuster showcased one of it’s latest Gritbuster Road Sweepings Recycling machines, the WT-250, in live demonstrations, together with a HDSHydraulic Density Separator unit designed to separate materials by density.

Company CEO, Ferdinand Doppstadt, explained that “as most of these materials were originally processed using water based separation techniques it seem perfectly logical to use the same techniques to treated recycled materials (such as construction demolition waste) to a similar standard. To achieve this we have introduced a new range of water based separation machines and teamed up with Monmouth based Siltbuster Limited to provide the water treatment technology necessary to allow the process water to be cleaned for re-use. By operating with a closed loop water treatment circuit we are able to provide a range of separation systems which unlike most conventional sand and gravel processing operations do not rely on large settlement lagoons to naturally treat the water. The net result is a compact system that can be rapidly deployed on small sites to reprocess a range of waste materials to a higher standard than can be achieved by the current dry processing techniques.”

Commenting on this development and the show, Siltbuster CEO Dr Richard Coulton said “we have working towards this launch with Doppstadt for a number of years now and are honoured that they have chosen us to partner within them in this exciting opportunity. Both the water treatment systems and the Gritbuster Separation Technology were demonstrated to over 5,000 potential customer from around the world. We were very pleased with the response we received and look forward to working with Doppstadt on new projects throughout Europe and beyond.”
