Metso is expanding its waste recycling product range with the launch of the new Metso M&J K-series pre-shredders. The first two models will be M&J K160 and M&J K210. The new competitive models provide a low cost-per-ton with high reliability, ease of operation and great flexibility for various waste types and with a design optimized especially for sites with a 5 to 45 tons per hour production requirement.

The new shredders come with the wide variety of proven knives developed by Metso to accommodate clients' specific needs. With the open cutting table design, operators do not need to pre-sort the waste being loaded into the shredder; this translates to higher capacity with less manpower and fewer breakdowns.

Due to tightening legislation for waste treatment, the demand for competitive pre-shredders is increasing around the world. One of the strongest growth markets is Asia, where the need for efficient waste management solutions is becoming more important.

"Our customers have been asking for a wider range of competitive pre-shredders from Metso. By launching the new M&J K-series with one shredder replacing an existing shredder and the second shredder complementing the capacity range, we can cater to much wider requirements, and an even broader range of waste producers can benefit from the unique advantages that Metso can offer with the M&J shredders. The favorable price/performance ratio will also expedite sales to the Asian market, where is a huge demand for reliable pre-shredders," said Morten Kiil Rasmussen, commercial director, waste recycling, Metso.

Improved Capacity, Longer Lifetime, Lower Cost
  • The unique bi-directional shredding system (both synchronous and asynchronous) with two shafts provides superior performance with all waste, resulting in unbeatable uptime
  • The proven knives geometry reduces the risk of wrapping on the shafts, resulting in less bridging and fewer cleaning stops to improve capacity
  • The modularity ensures that only relevant components need to be maintained, ensuring a longer lifetime with lower operating costs
  • The M&J K-series pre-shredders have a robust and proven construction and are easy to access, making maintenance fast and service costs low
Comprehensive Range of Waste Recycling Products

In total, more than 800 Metso waste shredders are currently in operation globally, most of them in China, UK, Germany, France and Italy.

Metso's M&J pre-shredding technology for stationary and mobile plants is based on a powerful drive system, excellent knife design and an open cutting table. These features and other distinct technical advantages benefit customers who are looking for a robust high-capacity shredder for continuous use at a high run rate even with hard and abrasive materials, according to the manufacturer.

Metso's M&J fine-shredders handle a wide range of different materials and deliver a very stable and homogenous output with minimum fines that is extremely suitable for refuse derived fuel (RDF) production. With Metso's M&J fine-shredders, customers can achieve a throughput of up to 28 tons per hour. The multi-edged shaft is fitted with a knife system and smart-engineering to reduce operating costs.
