EcoRip Pre-Shredder

The basis for a more efficient shredder process

Processing shredder input material with the aid of EcoRip always makes good sense both technically and economically. The SICON EcoRip Pre-Shredder is characterized by a high output at defined particle sizes and is also especially easy to maintain. That makes the EcoRip the benchmark in terms of technology and efficiency when it comes to processing shredder input material. The EcoRip is ideal both for pre-shredding mixed scrap with integrated screening step as alternative to a guillotine shear as well as for pre-shredding shredder input material prior to loading onto a shredder infeed conveyor. The SICON EcoRip can also be flexibly used as an effective standalone solution or can be subsequently added to an existing system at any time.

Its key advantages include an improvement in the performance of the main shredder by up to 30 % with increased reliability (reduced wear and tear and decrease in emissions) as well as lower energy costs (kWh/m.ton of FE output) with improved quality of scrap (higher density). An ideal implementation calls for the control system of the main shredder to be adapted by an expert from SICON (IntelliShred). The advantages posed by the SICON EcoRip are reflected in the considerable improvement in the operational efficiency of the shredder line. EcoRip will make your shredder process considerably more competitive.

Your benefits at a glance

EcoRip for preshredding of mixed scrap with downstream screening and FE separation as alternative to a conventional guillotine shear

Advantages of EcoRip with integrated screening of mixed scrap
  • Generating a homogeneous and coarse-grained scrap
  • Material preparation for an efficient sorting of NF metals with integrated FE separation
  • Efficient separation of inert and magnetic fines (oxides)
  • Optimized and faster loading of sea containers for scrap export
  • Lower specific investment costs compared to conventional shredder systems
Metallurgical advantages
  • Optimization of filling process of scrap baskets thanks to increase in bulk density of mixed scrap and thus improved use of space
  • Decrease in number of scrap baskets used smelting process
  • Higher metallurgical yields and thus lower quantities of slag
  • Reduction in specific energy costs per ton of raw steel
EcoRip as upstream addition to a shredder line for the pre-shredding of shredder input material
  • Pre-shredding of bales, auto bodies, mixed scrap – use of bales is thus also possible in smaller shredders
  • Separation of inert fines with the aid of integrated screens upstream of the main shredder
  • Increase in performance of main shredder (by up to 30 %) with corresponding adaptation of electronic control system of the main shredder (IntelliShred)
  • Significant decrease in wear and tear of main shredder
  • Prevention of explosions occurring in the main shredder, thus decrease in emissions
  • The combination of EcoRip and main shredder enables SICON’s dry AirTuning® exhaust purification process – Fully automatic operation of entire shredding system possible
  • Increase in scrap density due to full box shredding
  • Increase in recovery of NF metals thanks to improved preparation
  • Quality control of baled scrap
  • Prevention of unshreddables being fed into the main shredder, thus resulting in a significantly improved operational reliability
