Metso adds two preshredders to K series

Metso says the machines are ideal for sites with production requirements between 5 to 45 tons per hour.


Metso Waste Recycling, based in Helsinki, has added two new preshredders to its K series. Metso says the new models will offer attractive alternatives in terms of performance and price for sites with production requirements between 5 to 45 tons per hour.

The price-performance ratio for the new shredders has been set at a competitive level in the market, Metso says. With this strategy, the company is aiming to ensure the shredders will consolidate Metso Waste Recycling's position in established markets while also creating an inroad into adjacent markets. 

“The new machines complement our range of shredders, so we can now cater for much wider capacity requirements. These are actually machines our clients have requested, so we are convinced that they will be well-received,” says Morten Kiil Rasmussen, the commercial director for Metso Waste Recycling. “The favorable price-performance ratio will also expedite sales to the Asian market, where there is huge demand for reliable preshredders with a capacity range between 5 to 45 tons per hour.”   

The new shredders come with the same variety of knives developed over the last many years to match client's specific needs. Meanwhile, the open-cutting-table design means operators do not need to presort the waste being loaded into the shredder. That, in turn, means less manpower and fewer breakdowns, Metso says.  

Other features of the K series include:

  • a unique shredding system, both synchronous and asynchronous, with two shafts designed to maximize uptime;
  • a proven knives geometry to reduce the risk of wrapping on the shafts for less bridging and fewer cleaning stops to improve capacity;
  • modularity to ensure only relevant components need to be maintained for a longer life with less running costs; and
  • robust construction that is easy to access, making maintenance fast and the service costs low.

Metso Waste Recycling also has a global network of service specialists and local service partners who can provide assistance at any time of day year-round.
