Eldan Recycling A/S, Faaborg, Denmark, is launching a new generation of the Eldan Multi-Purpose Rasper, the MPR200 HD. This upgraded version is based on Eldan’s Heavy Rasper, but with new features allowing more than double the inertia in the flywheels, increased capacity and lowered downtime for maintenance, the company says.

The current Multi-Purpose Rasper is designed as an efficient, medium speed, dual drive recycling machine ensuring individual size reduction of pieces of electronic scrap (WEEE), tires, cables etc., down to a size of less than ½ inch (12 millimeters).

The MPR200 HD will be presented at the ISRI Convention and Exposition, set for April 9-13 in Orlando, Fla. (Booth Number 1023).

“Regarding the fact that the Eldan Rasper is one of the most popular secondary processors in the world, it was a natural step to invest in improvements of its features,” says Dr. Toni Reftman, managing director at Eldan Recycling. “The MPR200 HD will be on display at ISRI accompanied by a 3D animation showing its new functionalities.”

Among the new features, the machine is equipped with 295-horsepower (220 kW) main drive power and more than double inertia in the two belt/flywheels. The speed is increased to 144 rpm, which increases capacity by up to 20 percent, Eldan says. The machine also features a newly designed protection cover that is capable of protecting the bearing from steel and dirt. Moreover, the screen system consists of three screen segments, and each segment can be easily turned. The result is up to double the throughput compared to the predecessor model.
