Pendik Yapı ve İnşaat Temizlik Hizmetleri San.Tic. (PENYAPSAN) A.Ş., which provides quality solutions to the infrastructure and superstructure needs of the district within the Pendik Municipality, Istanbul, achieves high efficiency in sorting processes of packaging waste thanks to its cooperation with TOMRA Recycling.
With its sensor-based sorting technologies and machines, TOMRA Recycling enables constant operational efficiency of its clients’ sorting plants. The close cooperation with TOMRA allows PENYAPSAN to use the most advanced sorting solutions to fulfill their respective operational needs. Based on both the latest machinery and TOMRA’s service offering, PENYAPSAN sorts a yearly average of 18,000 tons of mixed packing waste with TOMRA's sensor-based sorters. Three of TOMRA AUTOSORT®
machines are installed in PENYAPSAN facilities and demonstrate outstanding performance in sorting paper
, cardboard, PET, and plastic packaging
by their types in a very short time.
Right from the start, PENYAPSAN has been benefiting from TOMRA's vast experience. In the installation stage, TOMRA’s field teams carried out various services, such as inspection, maintenance, recalibration while closely working with PENYAPSAN's technical team. In addition and after starting the operation, TOMRA's after-sales service team provided on-site training to the staff. This equipped the operators with the necessary knowledge to conduct basis maintenance work and changes in machine settings themselves.
While operating, the sorters generate reports, which are extremely clear, complete and concise. Based on these reports and the operators’ expertise gained in TOMRA's training sessions, many calibrations can be carried out by the staff on-site. One of the typical report results is that the configuration has to be adapted to the incoming material. Another typical action point can be the need to replace spare parts. Since the facility has stocks for the replacement of some necessary parts, the replacement can be carried out rapidly and thus reduce machine and plant downtime. When it comes to more extensive service work, TOMRA is on hand to make various modifications to boost sorting efficiency and performance.
