What we can get from recycling mattress waste

Mattresswaste is a kind of bulky waste which is not easy to deal with. Generally mattressis made of cloth, sponge, metal spring, wood and other materials. As mattressis an essential item for every family, a great deal of mattress waste areproduced every day to the city. How to turn such massive mattress waste intovaluable items? European countries has many years of mattress waste managementand their mattress waste technology is more mature. This article will focus onEuropean mattress waste management technology to see how European people dealwith their used mattress.


Difficulties in traditional mattress waste management

Dueto different sizes and structural differences, present European mattress wastetechnology still can not achieve fully automated sorting. The mainstream mattresswaste process technology in Europe uses artificial auxiliary machinery todecompose mattresses waste. In particular, Chinese mattresses are featuring awide range of specifications, a variety of kinds like ordinary spongemattresses, spring mattresses, silk mattresses, wooden frame with a custommattress, etc. Facing such difficulties, the process of sorting is hard toachieve fully automated sorting.


Current fully automated mattress waste management dismantlingsystem

Afew years ago a Dutch company developed a fully automated waste mattressdismantling system which was designed for the standard sponge and springmattresses. The following is an example of this automatic mattress dismantlingsystem:




l  Mechanical feedingsystem

l  Artificial auxiliary mechanicaldismantling system

l  Dust removal system,fresh air system

l  Conveyor system

l  Sorting materialdiversion system

l   Lightweightpackaging system

l  Wire separation, shreddingsystem


Harden developed advanced mattress waste management technologyfor Asia market


Theexample system above has been in operation in Europe for many years. As itshows from the diagram and the number of devices, such kind of fully automatedwaste mattress dismantling system is expensive. Comparing this fully automatedmattress waste dismantling system with the current situation in China, there isa huge difference between this system and the domestic mainstream programs, wecan say this kind of system will be hard to be popularized.


Inthe second half of this year, Harden technology team focuses on studying how tocombine the advanced European mattress waste management technology with theactual local needs so as to develop a technology that can be applied to disposedomestic mattress waste.


Todevelop more advanced and suitable mattress waste management technology, HardenGerman CTO and Chinese team of engineers made a special trip to theNetherlands, Germany, Poland, Italy and other European countries for severalweeks to have a deep exploration of the most advanced mattress waste recycling technology.After communication and technology exchange between Chinese and foreign experts,we not only understand the latest technology after upgrading, and have alreadyformed a unique economic and efficient bulky waste management program.


More mattress waste management information will beshown in May 2018 Shanghai World Expo.

Actuallynow the new bulky waste ideas is already in the real order production phase.Compared with the mature technology in Europe and the common practice in China,Harden system is essentially optimized for the needs of sanitation companypersonnel, investment and site requirement.


Tooffer the most reliable and economical solution for our customer is the corevalue of Harden Company. The details of harden updated bulky waste managementsystem will be released in May 2018 Shanghai World Expo. We are looking forwardto meeting you there!
