Metso recently introduced its state-of-the-art solutions for the metal recycling industry at ISRI 2019.
“All our recycling solutions are well-known for their high efficiency, durability, usability and low energy consumption. The recycling solutions we’re introducing at ISRI are helping our customers to achieve their business’ targets, whether that’s related to increased and more efficient production, ease-of-maintenance, safety measures or other industry relevant challenges,” said Mark Haire, vice president, Metal Recycling Americas.
Metso’s N-Series line of robust shears and balers are suitable especially for smaller and mid-market operators. Metso’s N-SeriesTM has become the popular choice amongst small to midsize market operators and niche industries around the globe.
The N-Series Modular (NMS) shear/baler/logger (SBL) is the most recent addition to the popular product line, meeting the growing market demand for site-to-site and on-site mobility.
The exclusive solution provides scrap facilities with a robust and reliable shear available in their choice of stationary, transportable, mobile or track-mounted styles to best meet their facility requirements. The current NMS Series shears have a 660- to 700-ton shearing force range.
Through its Texas ShredderTM and LindemannTM product lines, Metso offers a full range of pre-shredders, automobile shredders, shears, balers and briquetters, along with complete capabilities for developing custom solutions for our customers’ ferrous and non-ferrous scrap processing needs.
Lindemann EtaRipTM is a heavy-duty pre-shredder providing greater shredder efficiency by pre-shredding bales and ELVs. This results in better sorting and fewer unshreddables into the main shredder, significantly reducing the risk of explosions and maximizing production output.
The N-Series product range offers robust performance for smaller operators and for niche industries. The portfolio includes the NIS Inclined Shear, NCS Clamshell Shear/Baler/Logger, NMS Mobile Shear/Baler/Logger, NTB Triple Ram Baler, NLB Lid Baler and NBS Box Shear. The NIS Inclined Shear, for example, has proven itself as an excellent solution for shearing reclaimed rebar from C&D sites, which is historically a very challenging material to process.
In total, over 120 Metso shredders are currently in operation in North America alone, which represents about 40% of the total operating capacity in the market. Additionally, through the Lindemann and Metso N-Series brands, there are over 40 shear and baler installations currently in North America.
This is exemplified in Metso being sequentially named as AMM’s Scrap Equipment Provider of the Year for 2017 and 2018.
Metso Metrics digital solution
The most recent addition to the solution portfolio is the Metso Metrics digital solution, which is designed to provide waste recycling customers improved visibility and new insights into their equipment and processes with analytics, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance – all supported by expert services from Metso. Also launched recently are easy-to-use service tool packages each containing a complete set of components and tools needed for every shredder type.
Customers can also benefit from our spare parts services to maximize value by having the right parts at the right time. In addition, Metso offers field service agreements that can be tailored to the customer’s needs. With Metso’s preventive maintenance services, the target is to improve the performance of the installed equipment.
Outstanding pre-shredder performance for various customer needs
Metso’s M&J pre-shredding technology for stationary and mobile plants is based on a powerful hydrostatic drive system, excellent knife design and an open cutting table. These features and other distinct technical advantages benefit customers who are looking for a robust high-capacity shredder for continuous use at a high run rate even with hard and abrasive materials.
Homogenous output of Metso’s fine-shredders increases the value of RDF
Metso’s M&J fine-shredders handle a wide range of different materials and deliver very stable and homogenous output that is extremely suitable for Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) production.
With Metso’s fine-shredder, customers can achieve a throughput of up to 28 tons per hour, depending on the output size. The multi-edged shaft is fitted with a patented knife system and smart-engineering to reduce real-life operating costs.
