The hot summer by SatrindTech: three new shredding solutions for RDF production plants delivered all over the world

The 2017 summer season at SatrindTech has been really, really hot.

During the summer months, we completed production and delivered three machines addressed to three major projects in the waste business: two units of two-shaft shredders and one unit of three-shaft shredder. The machines are now operating in three different RDF-production-plants.

The first of the two-shaft shredder, delivered to a treatment plant in Colombia, has been a 50hp shredder, model K 13/50/M, equipped with our patented mechanical /M/AWG drive system.

This system (LINK) permits the customer to benefit of a fully electric machine (savings in maintenance operations costs and energy costs) with modes and behaviors comparable to a hydraulic system. The shredder was in fact commissioned to SatrindTech for the volumetric reduction of auto tyres and debeaded truck tyres.

The second two-shaft shredder, produced and delivered during mid-summer, is a model 2R 15/150 (at 150hp), that has been ordered by our customer for a bulky waste treatment plant in Poland.

The third machine delivered has been a three-shaft shredder at 200hp, model 3Rv15/200, which is now working 24// in a Chinese treatment plant processing fabric, textile and hazardous materials, suitable for RDF production.

From a 1 m3 cubitainer to 50mm chips, using a two-shaft shredder? With SatrindTech, “sí, es posible!”

A Spanish manufacturer of HPDE cubitainers and containers based in Cataluña has chosen SatrindTech to implement its recycling line of defective cubitainers.

The request received by our Sales Department was to replace an existing SatrindTech twin-shaft shredder, in use since the mid-1990s, to now be able to ensure a regular size of the shredded material.

The cubitainers are HDPE containers of approximately 1 cubic meter of volume that, inserted in a metal cage, are used in a wide variety of industrial sectors (oil+gas, food, medical and chemical sector, just to name a few) stocking and handling liquids or juicy materials.

The model purchased by the customer is a two-shaft shredder of the K 25 HP series equipped with 50mm blades at four picks (/hooks), a 1000 mm shredding chamber and completed with our patented CL system.

This counterblade system, patented by SatrindTech, enables conversion of a dual-shaft shredder model, with which it is normally only possible to perform volumetric, and therefore irregular,  reduction of the processed material in a machine capable of shredding materials with a pre-defined size.

A fixed counterblade located under the blades, together with grilles under the shredding chamber of the machine, allow a continuous process of material shredding so that it can be expelled from below upon reaching the required size.

Cubitainers are a type of material for which it is advisable to use a special hopper, called angular, so that material, with its typical cubic shape, can slide inside the machine at an angle of 45° from the centre distance of the blades, thus facilitating gripping by the blades.

The configuration selected by our customer will allow them to process one cubitainer per minute, obtaining a final size of the product being processed of approximately 50 x 50 mm.

Further information on the CL system is available by downloading the relevant technical data sheet here. Use this link to watch the example video.

Our shredding solutions speak American

Our client is an American multinational corporation in the plastic sector with offices and production plants in 23 countries and over 35,000 employees.

The client’s need to improve its performance in recycling material waste, whereby they currently only use one material granulator, led SatrindTech to suggest using two twin lines to handle plastic material in PPE. One line will be used to reduce the volume of sprues, while the other will be used to process waste from the plant’s extrusion line.

The engineering of the line consists of three elements: an automatic hoist tilter, a dual shaft shredder (model: K 8/25) and a transport belt placed after the shredder to transport the shredded material to the mill.

The process provides a total automation of the process for the cargo and discharge of material, whereby cargo is carried out by placing the material cargo into the hoist tilter which will lift and carry the material into the hopper. Once the material has been shredded in the shredding room, it will be transferred to the mill using the transport belt. The whole process cycle is managed by a PLC Siemens control panel.

While this solution is in itself a solution that has already been tried and tested during SatrindTech’s history, its uniqueness lies in the fact that the main electrical panel that governs the plant was designed and uses components in accordance with UL 508 / NPFA 79. Therefore, the electrical panel had to be completely redesigned, in keeping with IEC standards, for the use of components that respected the UL standards, as the on-board wiring had to reflect the similar requirements. All of the electrical cables had to be reviewed and replaced in keeping with European standard supplies.

In essence, this legislation regulates the provision of equipment and instructs the technical characteristics which the machine(s) must possess for the United States. Where the certification, in accordance with these regulations, is a contractual requirement, the SatrindTech and its Engineering are able to satisfy any such problematic requests.

We’ve had a makeover!

Our new site satrindech.com is now online.

Now available in Italian and English (and the French and Spanish versions will soon be available too), the site’s contents have been updated and its graphic design has been revamped for optimal navigation on both your computer and on your smartphone and tablet.

One of the best things to come from the site’s structural shake-up is how easy it is for the user to search for information related to processes and products: from one side, the six macro-categories of the available applications allow you to quickly navigate between materials to be processed and the suggested shredder module according to process and product specs. This approach also works the other way around: for each family of shredders on show, you will also see the possible applications, which are hyperlinked straight to the relevant application page.

In all of the Application pages, as well as a short introduction to the material to be processed, there are links to suggested models and, if available, videos related to tests that have been conducted.

The Product page, on the other hand, contains an identifiable icon (shredding room or an entire machine, as the case may be), provides the main technical features, possible configuration options for the model, downloadable material and videos of experiments and tests that have been conducted.

Another new feature of the new site is a Blog, where posts from the company or from users commenting on SatrindTech products and shredding solutions are published.

Furthermore, the News section will allow you to be kept up to date on the company’s activity in the technical world (showcasing technical solutions that have been offered to various clients), on planned events (like trade shows and open days) and the latest technical products that we are constantly putting onto the market.

The site launch will also be accompanied by our strategic promotion of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), with support from our IT specialists.

2 shaft shredder with a special transmission


Leave a comment

SatrindTech presents the innovative industrial shredder drive system with automatic transmission and frequency inverter

This system combines the automatic adjustment capabilities of torque and the typical speed of a hydraulic drive, with the advantages of an electric drive. These are the main features:

Productivity – For the same amount of torque developed, the mechanical automatic transmission ensures a higher rotation speed, and thus an increase in productivity compared to a hydraulic system of the same power. The variable-frequency drive allows an additional increase in productivity when the process does not require the maximum drive torque.

Compactness – It is a plug-in system on the shredder, available also as a retrofit for existing shredders. No more hydraulic power-packs and oil piping lines.

Noise level – The level of noise emissions is that of an electric machine, significantly lower than the noise emitted by hydraulic drive systems.

Maintenance – Drastic reduction of routine maintenance costs (filters and oil in control unit) and significant reduction of extraordinary maintenance costs (hydraulic valves, pumps and motors).

Our Sales and Marketing Service is on hand to provide you with any technical information you may require and to put forward our solutions for shredding material.
