Out & About

>>> continued

This Grade 1 listed building was originally built in 1797 to house the process of transforming flax into linen. Today it is seen as the forerunner of the modern steel-framed skyscraper.

English Heritage acquired the site in March 2005 and they identified some serious structural problems in the Main Mill building, and after a tender exercise, Harsco was selected to provide a scaffold framework which secured the building while solutions were developed and funding sought.

Harsco worked closely with English Heritage and the various other parties involved and embarked on an intensive exercise to design a suitable scaffolding and shoring system. This had to provide access for the refurbishment work, while also supporting the external walls, and had to be achieved without imposing any load on the fragile building.

New Weighbridge on a Slope Records Waste PaperNew Weighbridge on a Slope Records Waste Paper

Sloping ground proved no problem for the installation of a new weighbridge by Avery Weigh-Tronix engineers. The company installed the 15 metre pit mounted weighbridge system to help PHS Datashred maintain accurate records for recycled paper.

Installed at the company’s Crayford site in Kent, the new weighbridge system is helping the company account for an extra 7.5 tonnes per week of recycled paper bales.

Says Andy Redgrave, Southern Regional Operations Manager at PHS Datashred: “On average we have fifteen 25 tonne loads of recycled paper leaving the site every week. We were losing the equivalent of ½ tonne per load by not being able to accurately weigh it when it left our site. We relied on axle weighing to give an estimate, but this was far from ideal.

“Unfortunately, the site where we wanted to install the weighbridge had sloping ground and only Avery Weigh-Tronix were confident in installing a legal for trade weighbridge system for us.

“While most of our recycled paper is delivered by our own drivers for export and can be weighed at our customer’s site, we still needed an accurate system at our site to verify weights for our own processes and efficiency. Also, if a customer in the UK needs to collect recycled materials, we need our own legal for trade weighbridge to complete the transaction.
