Archdale, N.C.-based Vecoplan’s V-EBS 2500 has been designed to produce refuse-derived fuels (RDF) from MSW (municipal solid waste) and other waste streams. According to the company it is especially adept at re-shredding low bulk density plastics such as PET bottles, producing a homogeneous particle size. Heavy-duty industrial screens on the V-EBS, can be quickly, easily, and inexpensively changed, allowing the user to determine and change the output particle size, Vecoplan notes.
The V-EBS has an in-feed opening of 2,510 millimeters (8 feet) by 1,400 millimeters (4.5 feet), a rotor dimension of 1,000 millimeters (3 feet) by 2,510 millimeters (8 feet) and has 54 cutting inserts on its rotor. It employs two counter knives for precise cutting of feedstock. Powered by Vecoplan’s patented HiTorc, electromagnetic drive, the shredding rotor turns at 150-250 rpms and features a throughput capacity of 10 to 22 tons per hour. The V-EBS is often integrated into Vecoplan’s complete WTE (waste to energy) and RDF feedstock preparation systems.
