Doppstadt to showcase electric motors for its machines at IfatPublished 4/7 at 08:40
At Ifat, the Doppstadt Group showcased the ‘Inventhor’ 6 with electric drive. Furthermore, this resource saving alternative to the conventional diesel engine will also be standard equipment for the company’s ‘Methor’ and its screens. The electrically driven variants stand out due to their extraordinary economic efficiency, as well as being extremely durable to help to keep operating and inspection costs down.
“By collecting and recycling valuable resources, the activity of the recycling and waste management industry contributes substantially to the environment and climate protection. The technologies used must comply with this task,” explains Dominik Niehaus, product manager at Doppstadt Umwelttechnik GmbH (DUG). This means that the recycling industry makes very high demands on the solutions as regards sustainability and resource protection. In these fields, the drive system is of special importance. Niehaus adds: “When developing new machines, we focus on efficiency and profitability.” With the integration of electrified drives in the machines, Doppstadt now offers users an attractive alternative to the customary diesel engine.
At Ifat, the environmental technology specialist showcased the Inventhor 6 with electric drive. The multipurpose single shaft shredder Methor and all the Doppstadt drum screens are also available with electric drives. The process engineering is based on proven Doppstadt technology. Compared to diesel engines, electric drives stand out due to their low operating costs – a decisive advantage in uncertain times. Inspection costs are also lower because the service intervals can be extended significantly. In the case of the drum screens for instance, the maintenance of electric variants is scheduled after 500 operating hours instead of 250.
What is more, the new drive option offers users multiple benefits. There is no need for time consuming routine work such as refilling diesel and AdBlue. Therefore, machine productivity is increased considerably. Unlike conventional diesel engines, the electrically driven machines produce no exhaust emissions, a benefit especially for the work in halls. Users also profit from advantages in the approval of new machines and sites.
