Lancashire-based industrial shredder specialist Mach Tech Services displayed the Lindner Limator shredder at RWM, which has been designed for anaerobic digestion (AD) plants.
Mach Tech announced that it had partnered with BioG UK, an agricultural AD developer, to market the new machine to the agricultural sector.
The Limator is suitable for the high volume, low energy processing of food waste and agricultural products for AD. It is a modular impact crusher, designed to improve gas yield by breaking up material as part of the AD process to produce biogas.
This is achieved through the use of movable crushing paddles and the momentum of the rotating materials, meaning it does not rely on cutting knives. It can be operated continuously or in batch-processing mode, and is fitted with a Hardox inner lining to increase durability.
