CM introduces Solo single-shaft shredders lineup
New shredders first to be developed jointly by CM and Schutte Hammermill
CM Shredders has introduced a new single-shaft shredders line that features a "Smart-Ram" system which automatically adjusts ram pressure for maximum efficiency. The new CM SOLO series is ruggedly built and engineered for performance, durability and low cost of operation. Units produce minimal dust and require reduced power usage and manpower.
Available in five models with the choice of 12", 15" 20" rotor diameters and with powertrain options from 30 hp all the way up to 125 hp, these shredders feature four-way reversible tool steel cutting teeth to handle small applications all the way up to large scale size reduction operations.
CM Shredders was acquired and joined the Bengal Machine family of size reduction companies earlier this year. The new SOLO series single shaft shredders line is the first new product developed jointly with CM's new sister company, Schutte Hammermill, a New York-based manufacturer that has developed an extensive line of size reduction equipment, including hammer mills, lump breakers, crushers and shredders that provide a consistent and exact finished particle size.
According to CM, this acquisition brings together two of the best-in-class premium shredding and size reduction equipment manufacturers in the world, whose combined equipment and expertise has the ability to provide a full
line of turn-key solutions for nearly every market in the industry.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
