The WEIMA WL industrial shredder series benefit from the patented ‘V’ rotor configuration, with special knife holders welded into milled pockets around the circumference of the rotor. Each holder supports a four sided concave knife, secured by rear-set, high-strength bolts which can quickly and easily be changed.
The drive output, rotor diameter (252 mm or 368 mm), knife number and type are determined by the material to be shredded and the required volume throughput. We discuss this at length with all customers to ensure the most suitable type of industrial shredder is chosen for each application.
The hopper is loaded with the wood based material and is processed through the shredder. It is fed automatically by the hydraulically operated pusher into the turning rotor.
Wood waste is then shredded between the rotor, mounted knives and fixed stationary counter knife, whilst the end shred size is determined by the screen size.
The concave cutting knives can be rotated four times to ensure a precise cut with high throughput performance. Knives should regularly be sense-checked by operators and by WEIMA trained engineers as part of a full service.
The end processed wood material can be conveyed either by material handling air extraction or mechanically conveying.
