The innovative Metso Shredder Drive Assistant (SDA) represents state-of-the-art technology designed to boost the performance of modern shredder plants, directly impacting the profitability and sustainability of shredder operations. The Metso SDA solution ensures maximum utilization of installed shredder capacity for Lindemann(TM) shredders. The system is available both as a retrofit solution and as an option for new machinery.
Metso has received encouraging feedback from customers who report that after installing the Metso SDA system, their scrap process performance has improved significantly. In the best test cases, the average output has increased by up to 2-digit percentage. Moreover, customers who have used Metso SDA were pleased to find that the return on investment was quicker than what they had expected.
“A customer in Europe has been using the SDA in their steel scrap plant. They noticed a reduction in the peaks, and the shredder performance was more constant and the FE output was better. The customer also experienced an increase in the throughput capacity with the SDA support.” explains Krischan Wolters, Director, Product Management, Metal Recycling, Metso.
Through its ability to assess the situation, the sensor-based system monitors the processes and facilitates the work. The solution automates the process of feeding material into the shredder. By controlling the material infeed through an intelligent solution, the equipment is constantly producing at a high rate and at optimized cost level.
