New Eldan ring shredders are designed to handle obsolete electronics.
The Danish company Eldan Recycling A/S is promoting two models of its Eldan ring shredders: the S1000-40 and the S1500-60. The 25-to-35-metric-ton machines are equipped with 250kW to 400kW electric motors.
In a press release, the company says the new machines operate in accordance with the anvil priniciple as opposed to other Eldan machines that operate on the cutting principle. The wear parts, such as impact rings and grates, are manufactured from cast steel, ensuring a long lifespan, the company says.
Eldan’s shredders are mainly used to recycle waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), tough cables like underground cables and aluminum in high volume (up to 7 metric tons input per hour).
“We are contented that these machines have been so well-received and accepted on the market. They have proven their efficiency and in recent years we have received orders from countries like Latin America, the United States, Japan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Romania and Denmark,” says Toni Reftman, Eldan managing director. “Due to this fact and the fact that especially the amount of WEEE scrap is increasing worldwide, we are introducing the next generation of Eldan ring shredders, starting with the shredder S1500-100.
“This huge and high-powered machine with increased rotor diameter and process chamber can process much larger items at a much higher capacity," he continues. "The weight of the shredder S1500-100 will be almost 50 metric tons, and it will have a 630kW electrical motor.”
Since 1956 Eldan Recycling has been involved in designing machinery to recycle tires, cables and WEEE.
