Mega-batch feeder

This mega-batch feeder will accept full loads of material directly from a dump truck. Units are eight feet wide and built from 20 feet and longer lengths, with a 48-cubic-yard hopper. Feed rates can be adjusted from five feet/minute to 150 feet/minute, and units use a proprietary sealed belt capable of handling shred, ASR, and waste products. A “kick back” drum is used for proper metering of material, and the feeder comes equipped with motor, power pack and electrical controls.

Camera systems for shredders

The Clear-View infrared camera system is designed to allow a shredder operator to have a “clear view” of the infeed chute by cutting through the steam and smoke generated from shredding scrap. These systems are engineered with a very tight viewing area and location which gives the operator a perspective similar to his own. Systems include protective casing, camera, LCD monitor and all cables and connections needed for installation.
