Lindemann™ EtaRip™ Series pre-shredders

Lindemann™ EtaRip™ Series pre-shredders

Reducing risks and noise in metal recycling operations

Lindemann™ EtaRip™ pre-shredders are metal processing machines used most often in scrap yards and other metal recycling applications. They can process various types of metal such as bales and end-of-life vehicles. Utilizing a pre-shredder reduces the risk of explosion in the recycling process caused by gas bottles, petrol tanks or other hazardous elements.

Increased profitability 

Pre-shredding enables the main shredder to work in a more economical energy range.

Reduced noise during operation

Safer and more pleasant working environment. Less noise enables shredding closer to the most regulated urban areas.

Maximum production output 

Non-shreddable parts in the main shredder are significantly reduced for increased uptime.

Cost-effective solution 

The turning rotors tear materials apart instead of smashing them into pieces. Reduced the risk of costly explosions.

Uncompromised output quality every time with Lindemann™ EtaRip™ pre-shredders

Lindemann™ EtaRip™  Series pre-shredders are efficient metal recycling machines utilized especially in scrap yards to reduce and defuse the material before it is fed into the shredder. They can reduce various types of metal waste from miscellaneous scrap to bales and end of life vehicles (ELVs).  

The pre-shredder series features a two-part tiltable housing with a movable flipper attached to the bottom.

Both a high-speed and a low-speed rotor ensure equal fragmentation of material, while a plummer block bearing provides support. The lack of a gear box in the direct drive system also eliminates the possibility of load cycle-related problems, ensuring superior uptime for your operations.

Increased profitability

The pre-shredding of material enables the main shredder to work in a more economical energy range. This minimizes or even eliminates expensive “peak load” charges from utility companies.

Reduced noise during operation

Lindemann™ EtaRip™ pre-shredder decreases noise pollution, making your work environment safer and more pleasant for operators and neighbors alike. Less noise also enables shredding closer to the most regulated urban areas.

Maximum production output

By using a pre-shredder for preparatory work, non-shreddable parts in the main shredder are significantly reduced for increased uptime.

The excellent sorting capabilities of the EtaRip™ pre-shredder provide you with extra protection against risky materials, further ensuring exceptional operational productivity and output quality.

Cost-effective solution

With potential savings of up to 6 figures, the pre-shredder has been developed with cost reduction in mind. The turning rotors of the machine tear materials apart instead of smashing them into pieces.

This greatly reduces the risk of explosion caused by the formation of sparks in the unit, making it safer to operate and more-cost efficient.
