EcoShred® Vertec

Processing of meatballs, electric motors and coolant scrap

The EcoShred® Vertec is used in various applications. One application example is processing of pre-shredded metal scrap from a twin-shaft shredding system. These machines aggressively reduce the size and densify pre-shredded material whilst liberating the various different fractions and allowing for better downstream separation. With a special design of the rotor, the EcoShred Vertec achieves maximum liberation in applications such as processing of meatballs or electric motors.

 

Individual adaptation to the operator’s requirements takes place.
The overall plant, including downstream, is designed to achieve the best possible end product quality.

 

The breakers in the upper part of the chamber smash the material until it is small enough to enter the gap between the milling rings or hammers (depending on the application) and chamber liners. Three stages of liberation and compacting create a product which is both clean and of high bulk density suitable for further separation or recycling. Adjustments to the rotor speed and distance between the stator lines and hammers make the EcoShred Vertec highly adoptable to customers‘ precise application requirements.
