Mobile Production Plants for Recycling and Shredding

For more than 30 years, ISODAN has specialized in the development and production of production plants for shredding and recycling of different types of materials. ISODAN systems are characterized by being mobile and delivered as Plug and Play ready solutions. Currently, we have developed and sold production facilities that are used in the following different recycling areas:

  • Plants for dust-free handling and reduction of fiberglass and composite waste materials
  • Plants for the production of cellulose insulation based on recycled paper, newsprint etc.
  • Productions lines for producing EPS granules based on the recycling of waste EPS materials

Common to all our production plants is that they are compact and transportable plants that are easy to set up and operate. Our standard production plants are built into 20-foot shipping containers, making them easy to transport to any location imaginable around the world. The plants mobility means that they can be located where there is easy access to raw materials and / or in the immediate vicinity of the customers of the products. This can save both expensive transport and handling costs, which also significantly reduces the total CO2 footprints of the products.

All of our plants are designed and constructed with a focus on customer-specific requirements, quality, operational stability, user-friendly and low operating costs. The plants thus also have a long service life and a high resale value. Some of our first cellulose insulation plants have moved locations with changing owners several times and have been in operation for more than 25 years.

The closed container solution ensures 100% control of the dust from production. This is, in particular, a crucial factor in the recycling of fiberglass and composite materials. The plants contain a unique technical solution for control and dust collection in connection with the partitioning process.

ISODAN® Production Plant for recycling of fiberglass and composite materials

Recycling of fiberglass and composite waste materials is often a major challenge, both for our global environment as for the handling process of the materials itself.

ISODAN® has developed a unique dust-free and mobile production plant solution for recycling of fiberglass and composite waste materials. The plant can handle all kinds of fiberglass and composite materials, such as wind turbine blades, end-of-life boats and industrial waste.

One of the major challenges of glass fiber and composite material breakdown processing is the harmful dust nuisance that occurs during the partitioning process. In our unique plant, the entire process takes place from material introduction to the packaging of the refined products, in a safe and closed dust-free environment under vacuum, where all dust is recycled back into the process. There is thus no dust nuisance or unwanted residual products.

Technical information

Fiberglass and Composite Materials Recycling Facilities

  • The facilities are built into the shipping containers of either 20 or 40 feet, depending on capacity requirements.
  • The plant can be operated and the full production capacity is maintained, using only one operator.
  • The plant can produce fiber lengths in flexible coarse and fiber lengths, depending on the specification of the desired end product.
  • The production plant is divided into service-friendly sections containing;
    • Conveyor belt material inlet
    • Rough subdivision unit
    • Transport and separation units
    • Vacuum filtration units
    • Fine breakdown units
    • Control modules and switchboards
    • Process Monitoring Devices
    • Self-Cleaning Filter Unit
    • Material outlet locks
    • Screening system for finished fiber
  • The entire processing process, from material insertion to final product outlet, takes place under vacuum which ensures that dust collection and recycling is fully controlled in a closed cycle which ensures a 100% dust-free working environment.
  • The system includes a number of automatic safety and control functions.
  • The regular service and maintenance can be performed by the operator operating the system..
  • The production plant is powered by electricity, 400 volts, 3 phases

ISODAN® Production Plant for Processing Cellulose Fiber

ISODAN® founded in 1974 in Denmark, a concept fueled by the international energy crises in 1973 - 1974.

ISODAN® Recycling and Insulation Systems have since then, become one of the leading pioneers and key players in the innovation of recycling systems and in the use of alternative insulation materials on the International markets.

ISODAN manufactures and offers a unique range of production plants for the production of plant and cellulose fiber-based insulation materials. The production plants typically have a capacity of 500 to 1,500 kilos of finished product an hour. The capabilities can be adapted to the individual customer's needs. We export our production plants all over the world, we currently have production plants operating in countries ranging from Eastern Europe to North and South America.

Cellulose Insulation Production

Production Plants for the production of plant and cellulose fiber-based insulation materials

Technical information

Standard Production Plant for Cellulose Insulation Production

  • The Production Plant is built into a 20-foot shipping container.
  • The plant can be operated at full production capacity by the use of only two operators.
  • The production plant is divided into two separate sections.
    • In section 1 the drive motor, partitioning functions and vacuum system are located.
    • Section 2 gives easy access to the technical control of the plant and material outlet. The sectional separation means that the sound from the engine room is muted.
  • A material inlet conveyer belt is mounted on the side of the plant which guides the cellulose materials into the processing line.
  • Section 2 of the plant is constructed with, among other things, outlet locks where the finished cellulose insulation is packed in sacks.
  • During the processing process, the plant automatically adds mineral salts to ensure that the insulation material is fire resistant and resistant to fungus, rot and pests.
  • The system includes a number of automatic safety and control functions.
  • The regular service and maintenance can be performed by the staff operating the system.
  • The production plant is powered by electricity, 400 volts, 3 phases
  • Is also available as a 40-foot container production plant solution for higher production capacities.

Production Plants for Recycling EPS (flamingo) Waste Materials

EPS (expanded polystyrene) is widely used both as insulation material and in very large quantities as packaging / transport material. Much of these materials, after fulfilling their original purpose, are being disposed by waste incineration. Here at ISODAN, we have developed a concept and production plant for recycling of EPS waste products, which are being partitioned and can be recycled as insulating granules and added to, for example, the manufacture of lightweight concrete etc. With this ISODAN solution, expensive manufactured EPS waste products can be upcycled for a new life and new energy-promoting purposes for the benefit of both the environment and the economy.

Technical information

Production Plant for EPS granules

  • Isodan EPS decomposition plants are designed for enabling producing recycled EPS (flamingo) granules from every feasible form, such as packaging materials, building insulation panels and other EPS waste fractions.
  • The plant is designed with a keen focus on being very flexible and can thus be set to produce granular sizes from approx. Ø 20 mm to Ø3 mm, depending on the desired specification for the granular size.
  • The partitioning process takes place mechanically and in several stages from coarse to fine partitioning
  • The plant can be delivered both with and without drainage / storage silos, or with transport systems for blowing the EPS granulate in the transport container etc.
  • The input material is transported into the production line via transport and sorting conveyer belts
  • The system can be operated by the use of only two operators
  • The system includes a number of automatic safety and control functions.
  • The regular service and maintenance can be performed by the operators operating the system.
  • The system is powered by electricity, 400 volts, 3 phases
