ANDRITZ MeWa, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, has received an order from Nothnagel Wertstoffverarbeitung GmbH with headquarters in Hartenstein, Germany, to supply three Universal Granulators UG 1600 S. The equipment will be used for post-shredding of composite materials and replaces the shredding technology used to date.
The waste material treated consists largely of steel wire and other iron components requiring a stable and reliable shredding technique. The Universal Granulator UG prepares the material in an optimum process. The feed material is grasped by the rotor knives and shredded in interaction with the stationary stator knives. By using a replaceable screen underneath the rotor, with variable perforation diameters, the throughput, and thus the shredding result, can be chosen freely. In addition, the new generation of ANDRITZ MeWa granulators is fitted with a specially controlled pendulum pusher device that increases the throughput.
Nothnagel (nothnagel-wertstoffverarbeitung.de) has been using recycling solutions from ANDRITZ MeWa for many years. The first machine was sold to the company located in the Ore Mountains back in 1998.
In addition to the customer’s great satisfaction with the existing technologies, ANDRITZ MeWa's high innovation potential, and very good customer service, the customer was convinced above all by the technical advantages of the new generation of machines: Nothnagel anticipates an increase in throughput of circa 15% with the further developed ANDRITZ granulators.
