ANDRITZ to supply new Cross Flow Shredder for refrigerator recycling plant in Slovakia
Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ to replace existing Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ at Elektro Recycling s.r.o.
GRAZ, MAY 28, 2019 -- International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Elektro Recycling s.r.o. to supply a Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ for their refrigerator recycling plant in Slovenská Lupča, Slovakia. Start-up for the new equipment is planned for the third quarter of 2019.
The well-proven ANDRITZ Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ, type 2500, will replace the existing Cross-Flow Shredder QZ2000 supplied by ANDRITZ in 2006. After the upgrade, Elektro Recycling will be capable of processing up to 90 refrigerators per hour with the larger QZ2500. No cutting tools are needed at the shredder – the machine breaks down the input material quickly and gently using rotating chains so that the individual fractions are exposed and can be separated easily from one another. The fully encapsulated, single-stage system for processing refrigerators recovers environmentally harmful greenhouse gases without any risk of fire and complies with the most stringent WEEELABEX standards. The scope of supply also includes the conveying system and the noise protection cabin as well as the plunger and heating screw.
Elektro Recycling s.r.o., located in Slovenská Lupča, Slovakia and established in 2002, specializes in recycling of refrigerators and other electrical and electronic waste (WEEE), which not only includes processing but also accredited collection and disposal of WEEE within Slovakia.
