Lindner-Recyclingtech at IFAT 2018

Lindner-Recyclingtech will showcase new and improved systems for shredding and processing recyclable and residual waste at IFAT 2018 – World’s Leading Trade Fair for Water, Sewage, Waste and Raw Materials Management. IFAT takes place in Munich on May 14th-18th where you will find Lindner-Recyclingtech in Hall B6, Stand 251/350 and in the outdoor exhibition area 909/1 on the VDMA Practical Days.

The company will present system solutions for waste wood recycling and waste wood fuel as well as a completely new, innovative primary shredding system along with an addition to the Polaris series, which has been established on the market for two years.

Polaris 1800 – The perfect entry-level machine for one-step SRF production

At IFAT 2018, Lindner will present the Polaris 1800 stationary single-shaft shredder, a new addition to the Polaris series first presented in 2016. In a single step, this machine series turns municipal, commercial and industrial waste into medium-calorific solid recovered fuels with a defined final particle size of < 80 mm for co-incineration in calciners.

While the machine types available since then reach throughput rates of up to 35 metric tonnes per hour (Polaris 2800), the new Polaris 1800 with a throughput of up to 16 tonnes per hour is aimed at waste management companies that still have material capacity to spare and want to enter the medium-calorific solid recovered fuels market. The shredder is also suitable for companies in regions where there is no need to process extremely high amounts. These include, for example, emerging economies that are taking their first steps in recycling. The Polaris series also features the lowest production costs (euro per metric tonne) for finished solid recovered fuels in its segment, according to a comparative study from May 2017 by the Chair of Waste Processing Technology and Waste Management at the University of Leoben in Austria.

What makes Polaris special is that its name is already used in the industry as a technical term to refer to the one-step production of solid recovered fuels from waste. As a leading supplier – celebrating 70 years of engineering expertise this year – Lindner has the solution for wet and heavy, bulky and even difficult materials mixed with non-shreddables, as often occurs in user operations. That’s what the Polaris is meant for!

Excellent waste wood processing – With Urraco and Miura

Whether dealing with EUR-pallets, furniture, bulky goods, roof beams, railway sleepers, construction and demolition waste, rootstocks that are difficult to shred or many other types of waste wood: Lindner is a reliable partner when it comes to waste wood processing and also supplies the ideal screening and separation technology.

The Urraco (with tracked chassis or hook lift) and the new Miura 1500 (designed as a 3-axle trailer) are particularly suited to mobile shredding. These two twin-shaft shredders meet the highest quality and service requirements and also reliably shred many other materials. On the VDMA Practical Days at IFAT, Lindner will use waste wood in live, twice daily demonstrations of its innovative, efficient, productive, cost and energy-saving shredding technology.

New and trendsetting! The Atlas stationary primary shredder

At IFAT Lindner will introduce a completely new system: The Atlas, a stationary ‘ripping’ twin-shaft primary shredder with high throughput and little downtime which complements the tried-and-tested Jupiter series: It does not cut, but has a ripping system and is therefore the best possible system solution in an SRF production line with the Komet series as secondary shredder when coarser particles are required. As a technology leader, Lindner has clearly recognized this trend and is also building on the future of electric drives with brake energy recovery and up to 40% less energy consumption than conventional hydraulic drives. This type of drive also reacts faster than a hydraulic one.

In the Atlas primary shredder, both shafts can rotate independently of each other making asynchronous and synchronous operation possible. If a shaft stops due to non-shreddables or tough input material, the second shaft can still be used in asynchronous operation which ensures continuous and homogeneous material discharge. Downstream optical sorting systems can collect, separate and eliminate more recyclables from coarser, pre-shredded, evenly discharged materials. The Atlas stationary primary shredder is the ideal machine for this – an independent and virtually maintenance-free shredding solution!
