Designed specifically for processing RDF, the new V-EBS shredder from Vecoplan (Fig.), produces homogenous granulate with minimal fines and virtually no excess lengths. The V-EBS delivers high throughputs from the widest possible range of alternative fuel feed stocks. Other benefits include: inexpensive replaceable wear parts, quick and easy access to maintenance components, and extremely low energy consumption.
The V-EBS is vertically fed via a 23.5 cubic yard capacity hopper, mounted above the cutting chamber. Feedstock up to 98”x36” then passes into the cutting chamber where it is continuously and completely fed into the cutting rotor by a load-dependent chain floor. The solid steel rotor is 39” in diameter and features cutting tools that are wedge clamped into troughs machined into the rotor’s surface. Cutting tools are available in straight or toothed blades and configured in 4 to 6 rows depending on application. Up to 54 cutting tools can be mounted on the rotor. Material is shredded or chipped, depending on the type of blades employed, between these cutting tools and 2 corresponding counter knives. Counter knives are mounted on
easily adjustable crossbars positioned on either side of the main rotor.
The rotor is driven by two of Vecoplan’s patented HiTorc™ motors. HiTorc™ magnetic pulse drives, increase throughput by up to 100 %, reduce power consumption by up to 85 %, maximize torque across the full speed range, and eliminate gearboxes, fluid couplings, and belts. Each motor delivers 275 hp and turns the cutting rotor at speeds that are variable from 150 to 250 rpm. The V-EBS employs heavy duty industrial screens that allow determination and change of the particle output size.
