VSL Single-Shaft Shredder
The VSL series shredders set themselves apart with highly robust engineering. Single-shaft technology has asserted itself in the market for material volumes up to 5.7 m³/h that are possible with this series. Reliability and a high utility value make our machines the number one choice for industry and trades.
The cutting rotor with its turnable and replaceable cutters delivers high chipping performance combined with energy efficiency. Our shredders make this possible with load-dependent pusher control. With our sophisticated plug system, we also attain a high level of manufacturing precision reflected in construction with an excellent accuracy of fit and low distortion.
All components are laser cut, eliminating the extensive heat input that the material is otherwise exposed to with conventional welding. This results in the unrivalled accuracy of pushers and machine frames. Material therefore cannot get jammed during chipping, which could otherwise result in machine downtime.
Fields of application
The following materials can be shredded reliably with our shredders:
- Solid wood
- MDF board
- Brittle plastics
- Cardboard packaging
How the dedusters work
The material is supplied to the shredder from above through the infeed hopper. A hydraulically controlled pusher presses the material to be shredded against the cutting rotor. The feed of the pusher is progressive in dependency on the main motor. Material is shredded between the rotating knives on the rotor shaft and a fixed bed knife in the machine bed.
After shredding, the material is transported away using an extraction system, screw conveyor or conveyor belt. Operating the shredder without a material discharge system is prohibited: The accumulation of material underneath the shredder’s rotor creates a fire hazard!
