The S-Series Rasper is mainly used in waste tyre recycling, providing a second “crushing” of material which has been pre-shredded by a twin shaft shredder.
The Rasper uses cutting and squeezing principles with rotor/counter knives to separate the steel wire from the crushed material, achieving a separation efficiency of more than 98 per cent and processing capacity of up to five tonnes an hour.
The easily replaceable DC53 cutting tools are bolt mounted, with knife supports and fixing wedges, ensuring long life and low operation costs. D2 counter knives can be adjusted individually to maintain consistent cutting clearance, while V-belts and a large flywheel ensure energy-efficient medium-speed cutting.
The casing and screen bracket are controlled by hydraulic drive, so that knife and screen replacement is convenient and quick. A two-piece chamber, fitted with wear-plates to process abrasive materials, also provides easy access for maintenance.
An independent bearing seat helps to prevent dust and debris from entering the bearing, avoiding blockages and extending the service life of the bearing.
A dual-motor drive means the S-Series Rasper can be used as a high-power single-motor drive, reducing the impact of the motor on the power grid when it is started.
