UNTHA UK has revealed a new two-shaft shredder - the ZR. Following 24 months of rigorous industry research and development, the dual-shaft machine aims to provide a low lifecycle cost for waste, wood and metal shredding.
The ZR has been specifically engineered for multi-shift, continuous pre-shredding - even when handling difficult materials some would consider economically unshreddable. The machine's low speed, high torque drive means it can process severe-duty applications with ease, for a high level of plant availability.
The ZR2400H, for example, has been engineered for the high throughput, rough shredding of bulky waste, C&I waste, waste wood, MSW, mattresses, carpets, railway sleepers, bales and rolled goods. Available as a static or mobile machine with crawler tracks, the goal for this model is volume reduction (90 percent <300mm), material breakdown for further treatment, and alternative fuel production. This cutting system is therefore ideal for cement plants, operators in the biomass and energy recovery industries, MRFs, sorting and waste disposal firms.
The ZR2400W is an efficient metal scrap shredder, and excels in the processing of WEEE and large domestic appliances. Again, the goal is to achieve a rough material breakdown (90 percent <300mm) for downstream sorting, making this the ideal machine for metal processors, recyclers, and aluminium and metal manufacturers.
Both pre-shredders are also supplied with the UNTHA Eco Power Drive with water-cooled synchronous motors - an energy-efficient concept which can reduce energy consumption by up to 75 percent.
The ZR will also be supplied with UNTHA GENIUS - the condition monitoring system which provides operators with access to their shredder's performance data, in real-time, from any device.
ZR trials are currently being offered throughout Europe.
