Metso’s new shreddersPublished 10/7, 2017 at 12:09
The new M&J FineShred 1550 and 3550 shredders are based on Metso's long tradition of creating superior high-tech shredders.
These new single shaft fine shredders with vertical feed by a pusher are for refuse derived fuel production.
The shredder handles a wide range of different materials and is suitable for refuse derived fuel production. It can deliver a throughput up to 17t/h, depending on the output size, and has a homogeneous output from 10mm to 100 mm.
“We saw a need in the market for single shaft fine-shredders with in-line feeding. These new shredders have an unbeatable price performance and delivers a super stable and homogeneous output which increases the value of RDF,” said Metso Waste Recycling senior vice president Uffe Hansen.
The multi-edged shaft is fitted with a patented knife system and is fed by a pusher that ensures material is not forced onto the shaft, and a minimum of heat is generated. The hydraulic drive of the shaft reduces power peak on the grid and guarantees impact resistant and resonance-free power transmission.
“Our goal was to create a shredder with vertical feed at a competitive price without compromising on Metso's usual high quality. Its great force is that it can shred almost any material into very small scale and ensure a completely uniform result without crumbs,” said Metso Waste Recycling Technology Development Manager Johannes Kjærsgaard.
