Waste disposal authorities ECOWEST-Entsorgungsverbund Westfalen (Gütersloh/Warendorf, Germany) recently put into operation a PowerLine 3000 shredder from Weima Maschinenbau into regular operation at its Ennigerloh, Germany location. The machine is used for final shredding of pre-shredded mixed industrial waste with plastics content into refuse-derived fuels used to produce heat and power. The company works in a 2-3 shift operation, depending on the composition of the material, with a throughput of 12-15 tonnes/hr capacity. This unit has a working width of 300  mm, together with rotor diameter of 800 mm. Reversible knives in a special through-tempered tool-quality steel, and with edge length of 80 by 80 mm, are fitted around the rotor. This enables, so says the company, an extended service life of 250-300 hours before reversal or replacement of a blade is required. The shredder is equipped with direct drive with a power rating of 350 kW. Speed is up to 170 rpm.
