EDGE Innovate will reveal its waste shredder at Hillhead 2024. The VS750i primary waste shredder is designed to handle a broad range of materials and to meet the diverse needs of modern waste processing facilities.

EDGE Innovate engineered the VS750i to process bulky, industrial, and various other materials, reducing them to manageable piece sizes. This capability lowers the volume of shredded material, cuts transportation costs, and allows for greater extraction of commodities. With its ability to be positioned near collection points in plants and landfills, the VS750i offers convenience.

The EDGE VS750i is ideal for environments where incoming materials vary greatly in size, composition, and shredding difficulty. It features dual 2.5 metre (eight-foot, two-inch) long steel rotors and is equipped with Hardox-manufactured rotating knives that run asynchronously in both directions. This design ensures constant material movement, preventing bridging.

"The VS750i is equipped with our advanced intelligent operating system, which includes tramp metal protection. This system safeguards the shredder from contaminants, preventing asset damage and allowing it to process a wide array of materials swiftly and safely, including municipal solid waste, industrial, commercial, and bulky waste," said Kevin Kelly, product development manager at EDGE Innovate. "Its multiple chamber configurations enable customization to meet specific product sizing with huge production capacity requirements."

The VS750i is constructed to withstand tough applications. It's ideal for use in recycling plants, refuse-derived fuel (RDF) production, incinerators, and large hazardous waste plants capable of shredding a wide range of materials like household waste, construction debris, and compacted waste bales. The shredder is user-friendly through the use of a 563 kW (755 HP) Caterpillar engine, open cutting table, hydraulic hopper extensions, automatic tipping hopper, and "One Point" service area for easy maintenance.

Delivering consistently high throughput – up to 150 tons per hour depending on the input type, knife configuration, and loading procedure – the VS750i enables ideal uptime and operation. EDGE Innovate's intelligent load management system further enhances its performance, making it a reliable choice to keep production lines moving.

Combining EDGE Innovate's intelligent load management system and the VS Status Alert ensures the efficient loading of the shredder. EDGE's "track and shred" functionality complements this combination, allowing the VS750i to be repositioned without the need to stop shredding. 

The VS750i is also available as a static electric unit, offering significantly reduced operating costs, less servicing, and no refuelling time. Ideal for markets with environmental, legislative, or noise constraints, the VS750i Static Electric matches the production capacity of its diesel/hydraulic counterpart. Its reduced maintenance needs and higher uptime ensure dependability with operators being able to customize the unit to meet specific application requirements or retrofitting into an existing waste processing plant.
