BHS Sonthofen’s new pre-shredder and rotorshredder

BHS-Sonthofen will present the pre-shredder of type VRS 1215 at the upcoming IFAT event. For the first time, BHS optionally supplies the machine with either a tearing table or a counter-crossbeam.

The VRS 1215 pre-shredder can handle anything from domestic and commercial waste, bulky white goods and e-scrap to building materials. ‘This allows customers to adapt it to a wide range of feed materials and desired granulation of the shredded material – which is a key prerequisite for cleanly separating the material by type,’ BHS notes.

The pre-shredder of type VSR is a low-speed, high-torque twin-shaft shredder. Due to the rotor shafts’ relatively large diameter and the special blade geometry, the machine is particularly suited for the tearing pre-shredding of large or voluminous materials such as household, industrial, commercial and bulky waste.

The tearing table is used when processing bulky feed material. The new counter-crossbeam is ‘ideal’ for the pre-shredding of materials such as electronic waste. In this application, it is particularly important to cleanly break apart solid components – for example, printer steel shafts – without damaging batteries and capacitors.

BHS will also be presenting a Rotorshredder of type RS 2018, which the company has developed specifically for shredding discarded electronics.
