Why is this UNTHA shredder perfect for anaerobic digestion and organic waste processing?

To process organic waste optimally, the shredding process should be slow-running and designed to produce a reliable particle size. With the customised RS40 shredder, a special cutting system with specific tooth and cutting gap geometrics has been developed to ensure the right fermentation substrate.

With UNTHA’s highly-acclaimed four shaft shredding technology, the RS40 is a robust machine with unmatched productivity and uptime. Because the contents of waste streams can never be guaranteed, an integrated foreign object protection mechanism automatically shuts down the shredder to prevent machine damage and ensure a safe and functional shred.

The RS40 boasts flexibility too, depending upon the client’s shredding requirements. For instance it can handle the segregation of food wastes from packaging, or the finer shred of vegetable and food wastes in corn starch bags to achieve a reliable particle size.

It is even helping transform Category 1 International Catering Waste as part of a biomass combustion systems at London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports, find out how here.

This food waste shredder really does achieve long term cost efficiencies and an impressive return on investment for clients, thanks to the ongoing operational savings that can be achieved from this reliable machine.

The RS series shredder is one of UNTHA’s most renowned waste processing machines, and is suitable for a range of applications. It can be operated as a stand-alone solution or integrated within a complex line of process equipment.
