On March 23, 2001, Erin Systems, based in Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec, demonstrated its “Starscreener 300” at the Avondale compost site at Toronto, Ontario’s Keele Valley landfill. The machine effectively screened the material under less than ideal circumstances — the yard waste had a very high moisture content and it was a particularly crisp morning. Other equipment might have not been able to screen under those conditions or would have required down time for cleaning.
The Canadian-made Starscreener is a leading screening technology that uses specially designed long-lasting rubber stars mounted on a series of high speed rotating shafts. Leaving very little fines in the overs, the machine provides quick setup (i.e., under 10 minutes) and size change of material within seconds.
