Shredding solutions for a cleaner world

From a 1 m3 cubitainer to 50mm chips, using a two-shaft shredder? With SatrindTech, “sí, es posible!”

A Spanish manufacturer of HPDE cubitainers and containers based in Cataluña has chosen SatrindTech to implement its recycling line of defective cubitainers.

The request received by our Sales Department was to replace an existing SatrindTech twin-shaft shredder, in use since the mid-1990s, to now be able to ensure a regular size of the shredded material.

The cubitainers are HDPE containers of approximately 1 cubic meter of volume that, inserted in a metal cage, are used in a wide variety of industrial sectors (oil+gas, food, medical and chemical sector, just to name a few) stocking and handling liquids or juicy materials.

The model purchased by the customer is a two-shaft shredder of the K 25 HP series equipped with 50mm blades at four picks (/hooks), a 1000 mm shredding chamber and completed with our patented CL system.

This counterblade system, patented by SatrindTech, enables conversion of a dual-shaft shredder model, with which it is normally only possible to perform volumetric, and therefore irregular,  reduction of the processed material in a machine capable of shredding materials with a pre-defined size.

A fixed counterblade located under the blades, together with grilles under the shredding chamber of the machine, allow a continuous process of material shredding so that it can be expelled from below upon reaching the required size.

Cubitainers are a type of material for which it is advisable to use a special hopper, called angular, so that material, with its typical cubic shape, can slide inside the machine at an angle of 45° from the centre distance of the blades, thus facilitating gripping by the blades.

The configuration selected by our customer will allow them to process one cubitainer per minute, obtaining a final size of the product being processed of approximately 50 x 50 mm.

Further information on the CL system is available by downloading the relevant technical data sheet here. Use this link to watch the example video.

Industrial shredder drive system with automatic transmission and frequency inverter


Leave a comment

SatrindTech presents the innovative industrial shredder drive system with automatic transmission and frequency inverter

This system combines the automatic adjustment capabilities of torque and the typical speed of a hydraulic drive, with the advantages of an electric drive. These are the main features:

Productivity – For the same amount of torque developed, the mechanical automatic transmission ensures a higher rotation speed, and thus an increase in productivity compared to a hydraulic system of the same power. The variable-frequency drive allows an additional increase in productivity when the process does not require the maximum drive torque.

Compactness – It is a plug-in system on the shredder, available also as a retrofit for existing shredders. No more hydraulic power-packs and oil piping lines.

Noise level – The level of noise emissions is that of an electric machine, significantly lower than the noise emitted by hydraulic drive systems.

Maintenance – Drastic reduction of routine maintenance costs (filters and oil in control unit) and significant reduction of extraordinary maintenance costs (hydraulic valves, pumps and motors).

Our Sales and Marketing Service is on hand to provide you with any technical information you may require and to put forward our solutions for shredding material.
