New single-shaft shredder for the domestic and commercial waste sector

MeWa Recycling Maschinen und Anlagenbau (Germany) offers a high-performance solution for the pre-shredding of domestic and commercial waste. The AlphaCutter series is a slow-running single-shaft shredder for difficult materials with high throughput quantities. In three different rotor sizes ranging from 2,200 to 3,700 millimetres in length, the new development can prepare up to 50 tonnes per hour.

‘Particularly in the area of domestic and commercial waste as well as with heavy materials such as mattresses, HGV tarpaulin covers and large pressed bales, the progress is huge,’ says MeWa Managing Director Ulrich Hink, listing the main application areas of the new machine. Furthermore, the AlphaCutter is ideally suited for the preparation of bulky waste. But the slow-running rotor also shreds solid metal parts with remarkable persistency. The heavy weight of the machine and the arrangement of the blades ensure stability and vibration-free operation.
The pre-shredding machine is supplemented with a compatible further processing line consisting of granulator, conveyor and separation technology, thus providing an ideal solution for the production of residue derived fuels. Here, MeWa offers the complete technology from one source, from the conceptual planning to the turnkey system.
The AlphaCutter has already convinced future users in a practical test. It demonstrated a new dimension, not only in its throughput performance but also in the quality of the output. The machine shreds the materials into equal, approximately palm-sized pieces. The result supplies ideal requirements for the subsequent granulation process. Thanks to the manner of pre-shredding, it was possible to increase the throughput in the granulator by more than 30 per cent,’ says Ulrich Hink, describing the performance of the new development.
