Safe shredding of dangerous waste
Efficiency and economy as well as innovation are buzzwords that many claim for themselves these days. Service- and maintenance-friendly “eco”-shredders are advertised as the latest invention everywhere. We’ll have to wait and see whether there really is “eco” behind these “eco”-labels. Lindner-Recyclingtech has invested in these attributes for their machinery years ago and already convinced their customers in practice for a long time.
A unique solution for shredding medical waste at the highest possible capacity was found in cooperation with our Italian customer Ecoltecnica. A shredder was required that would not only meet the stipulations of European law for processing of dangerous goods, but that would also comply with the equally high standards of our client. Our engineers developed a fitting solution: On the one hand, the housing of the machine was manufactured absolutely gastight for protection of the outside area. On the other, the shredder was positioned very specifically: the MICROMAT was set up in a flat angle so that liquids can easily drain off during operations and maintenance. This simplifies cleaning and results in a safe and clean environment in and around the machine. Compared to other shredding technology in this field, the Lindner single shaft solution incurs very low running cost; service and maintenance can be undertaken directly by the customer without any special tools.
General Manager Francesco Fallica comments on this tailor-made shredder: „We have been looking for a functional and cost-efficient solution for our special application for a long time. The shredding machine was supposed to meet our difficult requirements. Lindner has supplied an ideal solution that lives up to all our expectations.”
