In December 2017, Untha Iberica Mexico installed two 4-shaft RS40 shredders for the treatment of steel shavings from production waste. In the same month, the company received a second order for a further two treatment lines and these two units were recently delivered and put into operation.
The client is a leading provider of pipes and associated services for the global energy industry and certain industrial applications. It supplies the main international oil companies, as well as engineering companies whose business is the construction of facilities for the extraction, transportation and processing of oil and gas. With plants in 15 countries worldwide, net revenues of 5.3 billion USD and over 26,000 employees, the client is a market leader in a highly competitive sector and the confidence shown in Untha reflects the quality of the company’s products.
The high reliability of the RS series is a result of the machine’s rugged cast-iron frame design and the sturdy cutting unit. The low-speed, 4-shaft shredders are not sensitive to foreign objects and require very little maintenance. Thanks to the pull-in mechanism, the shredder does not need a hydraulic pusher system, which further reduces the need for maintenance. The low speed of the cutting shafts ensures low noise and dust emissions in the user’s operations.
