Vecoplan combines shredder, granulator in single unit

Issue: Fall 2017 Plastics Recycling

This story appeared in the Fall 2017 edition of Plastics Recycling magazine.

VD 1100: Vecoplan’s VD 1100 combines a shredder and a granulator in one unit and is especially suited for shredding lumpy, chunky or bulky material, including large hollow parts, mixed-plastic agglomerates, pipe and films. The machine features a thick-walled, ribbed-steel housing and a durable, balanced rotor with high cutting power for a maximum throughput of about 3,300 pounds per hour. The shredder is powered by a 37-kilowatt (kW) electric motor, and the granulator has a 15-kW electric motor.

What’s new? U.S. availability for the machine, which was introduced last year at the K show. It complements Vecoplan’s existing systems that combine shredding and granulating.

Benefits: The ESC drive lends a compact footprint and energy efficiency. Also, the cutting gap is easily adjusted on the quiet, easy-to-clean machine.
