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 5-45 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,” says Morten Kiil Rasmussen, Commercial Director, Waste Recycling, Metso.
