The reliable and rugged LRK 1000 and LRK 1400 shredders are popular with companies in the plastics processing industry for volume reduction and in-house recycling.
During shredding, a load-controlled hydraulic ram pushes the material to be shredded against the rotor which is driven by an electric motor, V-belt and spur gear. The rotor is equipped with replaceable indexable cutters and shreds the material against the main and secondary stationary cutting bars. The shredded material then falls through the perforated screen; the particle size is determined by the size of the screen. The particles are discharged via an integrated screw conveyor to which additional material handling equipment can be connected.
Like all UNTHA shredders, these machines can stand alone or be integrated into comprehensive systems. High throughput, outstanding availability and consistent particle size ensure an efficient and profitable operation.
