Scrap, Trim and Waste Extraction

Wherever an industrial process produces waste, we can design systems to capture and remove it. The waste will then simply be taken away to be recycled or disposed of. Our expertise in this process is trusted for many different medias and industries such as food and beverage, paper, corrugated card or packaging and containers. Efficient industrial waste extraction in the workplace is critical to the safety of your working environment, and with over 100 years of combined engineering expertise behind us, we’re the ones to call.

Industrial waste extraction

How do Trim and Waste Removal Systems Work?

A typical waste removal system uses extraction points strategically positioned near key waste-generating areas of your production process. Each extraction point is connected to a main header system, which leads back to waste-handling fans. These fans create the correct volume, pressure and conveying velocity within the system to keep the trim waste constantly moving, enabling the waste removal system to rapidly remove the material right from the source.

What is a typical Process?

The stages to a typical waste extraction system, such as in the can-making industry working with aluminium, steel and tin are as follows:


Strategically-placed extraction points are positioned near key waste-generating areas of the production process.


Waste is transported through the extraction points into a main header system, leading to waste-handling fans.


The fans keep the trim waste constantly moving throughout the system by creating the correct volume, pressure and conveying velocity to enable a rapid removal of material right from the source.


The scrap is then ready to be removed or recycled – the removal point (typically a baler or compactor) is positioned within the facility for quick and efficient access for removal or transport.
