Cutting unit of the ADuro C shredder

ADuro C shredder: pre-shredding without compromise

Whenever volume needs to be reduced, waste prepared for incineration, or materials shredded for subsequent processing, ANDRITZ ADuro C lays the foundation for a successful recycling process.

The success of a recycling plant essentially depends on the first stage: Pre-shredding of difficult materials. The ADuro C takes care of this task in a vigorous and reliable way and prepares large-volume material to best advantage for further processing.

Coupled shafts

A key component of the ADuro C shredder are the coupled shafts. They facilitate knife exchange since the gear unit does not have to be dismantled during maintenance tasks. Downtime is thereby reduced considerably.

Hydraulic pusher

The ADuro C can be equipped with a hydraulic pusher to achieve remarkably higher throughput. The pusher movement correlates directly with the motor current. If the motor current is too high, the pusher automatically reduces its force on the material. In the event that the current reaches a critical value, the pusher moves back up and a reversing cycle begins. Different pusher types, such as special solutions for tires, ensure most efficient treatment of the processed materials.

Heavy-duty machine design

Besides the standard ADuro C model, ANDRITZ Recycling also offers special machine equipment for heavy-duty applications. Scrapers and other wear parts are made of highly resistant Hardox to ensure extremely low wear, even during the processing of abrasive materials, such as pulper rags or larger parts made of metal.
