The Rotorshredder shreds, separates and isolates materials. The shredding tools exert a high intense stress on the feed materials through impact, shock and shearing forces. This results in selective crushing with the following characteristics:
Optimized recovery of copper from motor armatures and electric motors – also known as meatballs – at a customer facility in France thanks to selective shredding using the BHS rotor shredder of type RS 2018. The fed copper armatures and electric motors are first shredded and separated using the RS unit. They can then be separated into pure fractions (e.g., copper, iron, etc.).
The patented BHS rotor shredder consists of a cylindrical working chamber with a vertical, high-speed shaft. Mounted on this are pairs of working tools in a vertical floating arrangement. The tools are stabilized and horizontally aligned by centrifugal force. The flexible suspension of the tools on the shaft also serves to provide overload protection. As an option, the rotor shredder can be equipped with a flywheel as an energy storage system.
The cylinder features a double-wall construction. The inside wall consists of a solid split grate, the openings of which may vary based on the customer’s specific requirements. The input materials are fed into the working chamber from the top. Upon entering the crushing radius of the tools, they are subjected to very intense stress through a combination of impact, punching and shear forces. The selectively processed material then exits the working chamber through the split grate. Solid individual parts that cannot be shredded can exit the working chamber via a separate chute.
The EU directive on the recycling of electrical and electronic waste requires the reliable separation of specific components containing harmful substances. The BHS rotor shredder can remove components containing hazardous substances (e.g., batteries, capacitors and assembled PCBs) from the composite material without destroying them completely. These impurities can be consistently removed from the material flow after passing through the shredder.
The degree of shredding and the intensity of the processing can be variably adjusted by changing the speed, tool or grate. The system is offered in three different sizes to accommodate different requirements, particularly with regard to throughput rates and the size of the feed material.
1. Rotorshredder is in an idle state.
2. In operation, the hammers are stabilized and horizontally aligned by centrifugal force.
3. The inserted feed material is vigorously shredded after entering the impact chamber.
4. It takes just a few seconds before the selectively processed material exits the working chamber through the split grate.
One special feature of the rotor shredder is its patented grate opening located in the large, double-walled doors. The inside of the doors consists of grid segments with openings through which the material to be shredded automatically exists the working chamber when the required particle size has been attained. Different grid segment types can be used depending on the input material and the specific requirements at hand.
Grate configuration with large bottom opening for the separation of entangled input material, for example.
Grate configured with small, lower openings for a high shredding performance when processing hard, brittle materials.
