TDS 825 slow-speed shredder latest from Terex Ecotec
New high-capacity, customizable shredder ideal for large-scale operations
Terex Ecotec has launched the TDS 825, a robust twin shaft, slow speed shredder. Ideal for large-scale operations, this high capacity, customizable machine takes shredding to the next level and is suitable for all types of material including household waste, bulky waste, commercial waste, green waste, waste wood, tree stumps and roots.
TheTDS 825's hydrostatic drive offers protection against contamination and allows for bi-directional shredding, while independent gear boxes enable each shaft to be run separately, helping to reduce wrappage and improve the shredding of material. Should a blockage occur, the shafts can be controlled via the radio remote control allowing material to be repositioned before attempting to shred again.
In addition, according to Ecotec, this double-shaft shredder has 2.5m long shafts made from solid steel, with a fully welded tooth configuration giving an extremely high production rate with excellent size reduction. Located in the centre of the chamber, directly below the shredding shafts is the replaceable breaker bar, which controls the end product size by retaining material in the chamber to aid reduction and protects the transfer belt from damage caused by large pieces of contaminants. A number of breaker bar options are also available, depending on the level of reduction required, these are easily replaceable due to the side door chamber access.
The TDS 825 is powered by a 770-hp Scania V8 DC16 engine, and has been designed to provide operators with unrivalled levels of service access. The high volume, tipping hopper increases the feed area providing optimum material feed and can be activated using the control panel or via the remote control. Tipping cycle times can be configured to suit the application. Hydraulic folding hopper extensions allows for increased capacity, preventing the infeed material from falling out especially in bulky applications.
In addition, quick and easy set-up from ground level is guaranteed with the new TDS 825, taking a matter of minutes with no tools or working at height required. The overband magnet providing magnetic separation is both height and angle adjustable hydraulically, and lifts up and away from the product conveyor when not in use. All conveyors are built to a modular design allowing each one to be removed independently for ease of maintenance.
A separate transfer conveyor with a high specification belt ensures material is effectively removed from below the shredding chamber. The product conveyor raises hydraulically and folds into maintenance mode to allow removal of the transfer conveyor. The TDS 825 is manoeuvred via a robust tracked undercarriage, making it a great solution for difficult terrain.
According to Terex Ecotec, the addition of the TDS 825 Slow Speed Shredder will further enhance an already significant portfolio of products offered by , meeting both market and customers' needs. It will be available to purchase via the company's world class dealer distribution network that provide the sales and aftermarket service demanded for in the market place.

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.
