IFAT premiere: New Universal Shredder – completely redesigned

Universal Shredder for various applications

The new Universal Shredder of type NGU is designed for shredding virtually all materials that can be cut

BHS-Sonthofen will unveil the new Universal Shredder of type NGU at IFAT 2016. This shredder expands the company’s product range of single-shaft shredders by adding another innovative machine designed for standard recycling operations and for use in the manufacturing industry. It is generally suitable for all materials that can be cut and features a robust construction, easy operation and high machine uptime. The new Universal Shredder is available in several versions – for example with a screen pitch of 30 mm – delivering a throughput of 6.5 t/h and more.

The new Universal Shredder of type NGU shreds the feed material to a size between 20 and 100 mm. It can be used at conventional recyclers for crushing various materials, for example, for cutting paper and paper rolls, for destroying files and data media, as well as for almost all plastic parts, leather and textiles, residual wood, cables or parts made from PET.

It is also suitable for production companies that generate large volumes of waste. In this field of application, it reduces the size of the material so it can be processed further at the same facility or to facilitate transportation to a processing company. A typical application involves plastic barrels collected centrally at one location in a company and then shredded in order to reduce the transport costs for further processing.

Dennis Kemmann, Managing Director of BHS-Sonthofen GmbH, has completely redesigned the machine with his team: “Our aim is for our customers to achieve the lowest possible processing costs per ton. Before getting down to the design, we asked many users what their requirements were in regard to shredding. Their answers and the long-standing experience of our engineers were incorporated into the design. The result: A completely newly developed machine that economically shreds everything you can possibly cut.”

BHS added many technology advances that ensure excellent machine uptime. This begins with the sturdy design and long service life of the individual components and extends from the simple removal of contaminants through to short maintenance times and the rapid availability of spare parts.

BHS-Sonthofen supplies the machine in two versions: The Universal Shredder of type NGU 0513 with a rotor length of 1300 mm for a throughput of up to 5 t/h as well as type NGU 0518 with a 1800 mm rotor for up to 6.5 t/h – each based on a hole diameter of 30 mm. The motor drives are available up to 132 kW.
