M&J Recycling releases electronic fine
M&J Recycling has developed an electronic fine-shredder for heavy production of refuse derived fuel and solid recovered fuel. The Denmark-based company says its new M&J F320 E-drive has an output of 28 tons per hour and retains all the qualities and performance capabilities of the company's hydraulic fine-shredders.
"E-drive requires a minimum of service and wears out less than a hydraulic drive," says Jens Vestergaard Nielsen, head of research and development at M&J. "There are fewer moving components in the drivetrain and you don't need to supervise and exchange hydraulic components. Together, this means that the customer can expect significantly higher uptime and significantly lower costs to keep the machine running."

The new E-drive uses approximately 20 percent less energy for production as compared to its hydraulic counterpart, according to M&J. Smaller electric motors in the driveline mean the E-drive requires a lower amperage on the main power supply, down to 160 kilowatts from 250 kilowatts. Additionally, the new fine-shredder offers homogenous output for adjustable sizes between 25 millimeter and 100 millimeter. The electronic fine-shredder also has an automatic connection to the service center, which M&J says will save time and could enable preventative maintenance.
Because of the technical developments of the E-drive, M&J says the machine makes less noise than a hydraulic drive.RELATED: Tough equipment for any job
