Metso experts at the event will advise on choosing the most suitable equipment for different types of waste recycling needs to secure optimal process efficiency, sustainability and reliability.

"Metso's ongoing plan and investment into the North American market continues. Waste Expo is an ideal platform for us to meet with our current and prospective customers to discuss their business needs and how Metso can help them," says Lou Martins, General Sales Manager, North America, Metso.

New pre-shredders top off the range 

Metso's M&J pre-shredding technology for stationary and mobile plants is based on a powerful knife design and open cutting tables. These distinct technical advantages benefit customers who are looking for a robust high-capacity shredder for continuous use at a high run rate even with hard and abrasive materials. 

Attendees will be able to view the Metso M&J PreShred 4000 Mobile unit on crawlers. The 4000 series is the most popular pre-shredder in Metso's portfolio. It has a long history of proven market success in various industry segments and meets the special needs of extremely varied incoming material.  

Metso is expanding its waste recycling product range with the launch of the new Metso M&J K-series pre-shredders. The first two models will be M&J K160 and M&J K210. The new competitive models provide a low cost-per-ton with high reliability, ease of operation and great flexibility for various waste types and feature a design optimized especially for sites with a 5-45 tons/hour production requirement.

High-quality fine-shredders

The reliable Metso M&J FineShred range consists of one- or two-shaft shredders that are ideal for all recycling purposes since they handle a wide range of different materials. The multi-edged shaft is fitted with a patented blade system and fed by a pusher. This intelligent system ensures minimum wear and energy consumption, producing a highly consistent and homogenous output, thus making the M&J FineShred range extremely suitable for alternative fuel production (RDF/SRF).

The comprehensive waste recycling product range, covering pre- and fine-shredding technologies, is supported by an extensive scope of service solutions from Metso and a global network of service specialists and local service partners who are ready to help 24/7/365.
