Reliable extraction of heavy and light scrap ensures maximum system efficiency. Mixed scrap and scrap metal are shredded and crushed by state-of-the-art large shredders, sometimes entire vehicle bodies. Dust, gaseous or vaporous emissions are created which must be extracted and separated by dust extraction systems.
The expectations of shredder operators have increased significantly in recent years in terms of equipment functionality, product quality and energy efficiency. Additionally, it is important for the high efficiency of the dust extraction technology that it survives unscathed a potential explosion inside the shredder. The system must continue its dust extraction process immediately following such an event.
In times of rising energy prices and dwindling resources, the focus on a system’s energy efficiency in plant operations is in the forefront. Optimised air ducting and energy efficient dimensioning of systems is required.
