Doppstadt‘s ‘Methor’ signals a new approach to shreddingPublished 27/9, 2021 at 14:08
The Methor is said by Doppstadt Umwelttechnik GmbH (DUG) to be the answer to increasing challenges in the recycling industry due to different materials being processed.
With a contaminant resistant processing unit, the multipurpose recycling system is said to offer the most varied range of applications in its class. This is accomplished due to arrange for features including a transverse roller mounting, a simplified feed and discharge system and a hydraulic direct drive system. These enable users in the waste management and recycling industries to benefit from the smart machine design with simple construction, maintenance and operation.
“With the Methor as a universal machine we have come up to our customers’ requirements. Thus it is used in many steps of the recycling processes today. In principle, the Methor is the toolbox among our product range,” says Moritz Müller, DUG product manager. The machine is suited for applications with frequently changing materials such as industrial waste, C&D waste, mattresses, bio waste or waste wood. Both enterprises with small volume flows and users processing special batches profit from the precisely adjustable and efficient performance of the Methor and from the possibility to adapt the highly contaminant resistant shredding unit quickly to changing materials as needed.
Whether bag opening, dosing, charging, disintegrating, crushing or cutting, the Methor and its contaminant resistant processing system provides a wide range of uses for a variety of applications. It handles even special batches easily and economically, with users also able to benefit from various upgrade and combination options. “The Methor is designed as a modular multi tool. Therefore it adapts quickly and easily to new requirements and needs,” Müller explains.
Flexible application combined with quality
The modular design underlines the Methor’s flexibility as thanks to the unique roller change, easily operated comb bars and quickly replaceable tools, the machine can be upgraded in a very short time. In this way, the Methor can be changed to three different tooth sizes within 4min. Depending on the operating conditions the machine can be mounted on a hook lift frame or crawler tracks. Furthermore, customers can choose the processing unit mounted on support legs for stationary use.
Since the Methor can easily be combined with other Doppstadt smart solutions, it offers users further profitable possibilities to enlarge the range of applications of these solutions. It can, for example, be used as a part of mobile modular plant concepts. The Doppstadt plant concept is based on a combination of mobile machines which are suitable for different applications. They do not take up too much space and need not necessarily be operated in a hall. Compared to stationary plants, they offer a price advantage and greatly simplified commissioning. In case of changes to the basic conditions, e. g. new legislation, users can react flexibly and securely.
