Midwest Scrap Management Inc., Kansas City, Mo., has purchased a Harris Shredder drive package from the Harris Shredders division of Harris, Peachtree City, Ga.
Midwest Scrap, which is owned and operated by Kendrick and Kenneth Burgess, purchased the drive package for the HS12125 shredder it operates.
According to a Harris news release, the motor drive package is designed to maximize shredder performance and optimize energy efficiency, resulting in savings applied to the bottom line of the shredder facility.
The drive package bought by Midwest Scrap includes a 7,000 hp Schorch AC wound-rotor motor, an “extreme-duty” shaft arrangement, liquid rheostat, high-voltage switch gear controls and protection system, and a two-stage power factor correction system.
According to Jim Summers, operations manager of Midwest Scrap, the Harris motor drive system will also be used in a second Harris HS 125125 shredder plant the company is installing.
