The TDS 825 slow-speed shredder

Terex Ecotec has launched a range of TDS 825 robust twin shaft, slow-speed shredders, ideal for large scale operations.

The high capacity machine is suitable for all material types including household waste, bulky waste, commercial waste, green waste, waste wood, tree stumps and roots.

Customisable shredding programs allow operators to configure the machine to their specific requirements to maximise production.

The hydrostatic drive offers protection against contamination and allows for bidirectional shredding, while independent gear boxes enable each shaft to run separately, helping reduce wrappage and improve shredding.

Should a blockage occur the shafts can be controlled via the radio remote control, allowing material to be repositioned before attempting to shred again.

The double shaft shredder has 2.5 long shafts made from solid steel, with a fully welded tooth configuration giving an extremely high production rate with excellent size reduction.

Located in the centre of the chamber, directly below the shredding shafts is the replaceable breaker bar, which controls the end product size by retaining material in the chamber to aid reduction and protects the transfer belt from damage caused by large pieces of contaminants.

A number of breaker bar options are available depending on the level of reduction required, these are easily replaceable due to News Release the side door chamber access.

Powered by a 770HP Scania V8 DC16 engine, the machine has been designed to provide operators with unrivalled levels of service access.

The high volume, tipping hopper increases the feed area providing optimum material feed and can be activated using the control panel or via the remote control. Tipping cycle times can be configured to suit the application.

Hydraulic folding hopper extensions allows for increased capacity, preventing the infeed material from falling out especially in bulky applications.

The overband magnet providing magnetic separation is both height and angle adjustable hydraulically, and lifts up and away from the product conveyor when not in use. All conveyors are built to a modular design allowing each one to be removed independently for ease of maintenance.

A separate transfer conveyor with a high specification belt ensures material is effectively removed from below the shredding chamber. The product conveyor raises hydraulically and folds into maintenance mode to allow removal of the transfer conveyor.

The TDS 825 is manoeuvred via a robust tracked undercarriage making it a great solution for difficult terrain.

The new TDS 825 Slow Speed Shredder is now available in Australia from Finlay Screening & Crushing Systems.

ifm O3M photoelectric 3D sensors

The waste industry is increasingly looking towards technology to improve throughputs and drive operational efficiency. With this in mind, ifm has developed a new generation of 3D Smart Sensors to further increase the automation level of mobile machines and drive operational efficiency.

Using the time-of-flight principal, the O3M photoelectric 3D sensor measures the distance between the sensor and the nearest surface point. The unit illuminates the scene with an external infrared light source and calculates the distance by means of the light reflected from the surface.

The O3M’s integrated, automatic object recognition detects up to 20 stationary or moving objects in the vehicle’s path. By comparing the current speed, the motion vector and fixed parameters, such as breaking distance, collision probability is calculated by the 3D sensor and transferred to the machine control system via CAN bus or Ethernet, before being signalled to the driver.

A highly developed algorithm from the automotive sector and a frame rate of up to 50 frames per second allows fast and reliable calculation of the 3D data. Additionally, the specially modulated infrared light enables continuously high recognition rates, even with reflective material of varied intensity.

The O3M is used in waste disposal vehicles for automatic recognition of dangerous situations such as during reversing or placing container bins.

TANA Shark waste shredder

Recycling rates are increasing globally and new possibilities for using waste as a resource are opening up every year. Legislation aimed at reducing disposal to landfill means new methods of resource recovery, including waste-to-energy are leading to a variety of novel systems and processes. Because the business environment is constantly changing, having a versatile machine is invaluable.

The TANA Shark waste shredder was designed with exactly this in mind. The slow-speed multipurpose waste shredder is suitable for a variety of tasks, including pre-shredding, secondary shredding, small particle size shredding and in-line systems. It can shred a wide variety of materials, ranging from tyres, commercial and industrial waste construction, plastics to mattresses. The TANA Shark waste shredder enables full control over the particle size from 50 to 500 millimetres (two to 20 inches) with low operation costs and a possibility to perform shredding in just one pass.

One of the most problematic yet growing areas of recycling is end-of-life tyres. The TANA Shark 440 waste shredder can be used to shred tyres, with sizes ranging from car and truck tyres up to heavy earthmoving and mining.

Ensuring the end result is pure rubber without any metal wires, TANA Shark 440 takes care of the shredding process, whether its a pre-shred from 500 millimetre minus or a finished product of 50 millimetre minus.

In the primary shredding phases, unwanted metal wires are removed using an over-band magnet and a range of screens which are inserted below the rotor to generate a particular size of material. The end product size and quality can be determined and finalised by using a rotor screen with suitable mesh size out of the six available, ranging from 35 up to 220 millimetres.
