How to produce alternative fuels

With worldwide focus on recovering the maximum waste-to-energy possible, waste processing is an important growth market for stationary shredder technology. Numerous technologies now exist to produce fuels and energy from waste. Incineration is the most common waste-to-energy conversion. Yet to maintain a consistent flow, increase combustion efficiency and reduce costs, it is essential that the waste is pre-shredded.

Waste type

  • Bulky
  • Industrial (C&I)
  • Hazardous
  • Household (MSW)
  • Wood
  • Construction and demolition (C&D)
  • Biomass baled materials, such as straw

Advantage in M&J PreShred series

  • Open cutting table reduces wear to the bare minimum
  • Bi-directional shredding results in a consistent flow of shredded material onto downstream conveyors
  • Asynchronous shredding keeps waste constantly moving, thus improving shredding efficiency. With our aggressive knife design, no pushing device is required
  • Central lubricating system is standard on all machines
  • Power pack and cutting table that can be mounted separately, to keep more delicate components away from dust etc.
  • Automatic reversal, if knives encounter large or tough steel or cement objects
  • Intelligent shredding routines automatically adapt to processed material characteristics.
  • The PLC control system is equipped with six standard programs, including two that can be individually programmed
  • Hardox steel used in all parts of the cutting table exposed to wear
  • Bi-directional shredding with equal speed and torque reduces wear and improves shredding capability and capacity
