Herbold Meckesheim USA of Smithfield, R.I., said the EWS 60/120 is a single-shaft shredder for the pre-shredding of baled, bulky or other hard-to-process plastics including agricultural film, mixed plastics and die drool.
The high-volume shredder features a 23-1/2-inch diameter rotor and a 3 ton per hour throughput capacity. It is versatile, able to do wet or dry shredding.
During operation, large items are fed into the hopper by a forklift or optional infeed conveyor.
Since the EWS 60/120 is often used in the first stage of a plastics recycling line where foreign material is often present, Herbold Meckesheim has taken special care to create a well-protected rotor with bolted armor plating, eliminating the need for frequent re-welding. An integrated clutch mechanism protects the rotor and other key components, if an unshreddable foreign item should enter the destruction chamber.
