Mid-sized ELV recycling plants: better results at lower costs
Traditional Mega-shredders are increasingly being replaced by medium size processing plants and scrap car shredders like those produced by Zato. The reason is easy to understand: mid-sized ELV recycling plants are much more efficient, require a lower capital investment and have lower operating costs. What’s more, ELV scrap cars can be processed directly at the source saving significantly on transportation expenses.
The main advantages of pre-shredding
When shredding scrap cars, it is important that the vehicle has been pre-shredded before being fed to the hammer mill. Pre-shredding provides numerous advantages, it ensures that that the hammer mill will run as efficiently as possible with up to 60% higher output while significantly reducing wear and tear and energy costs of the hammer mill. Furthermore, the pre shredding process will filter out unshredables and neutralise any potentially explosive items such as partially filled fuel and natural gas tanks.
