Metso has received an order to supply its first Metso Lindemann EtaRip pre-shredder in North America. The customer, Milliron Iron & Metal, chose Metso’s solution due to the robust design and performance of the machine.
The EtaRip is a low-speed, high-torque recycling machine which tears apart bundles or end- of-life vehicles before feeding these to the shredder plant. It results in a more homogeneous, easily processed feed to the shredder, which in turn enables the shredder to operate at optimal efficiency.
The advanced design of the EtaRip contributes to improved shredder castings’ wear life and reduces peak electrical loads of the main shredder drive. It also provides protection against unshreddable materials that may be hidden inside bales or bulky materials.
It also reduces the risk of unexpected explosions inside the shredding chamber, which could otherwise cause significant environmental or equipment damage.
