WHY LOW SPEED HI TORQUE?
In a waste stream with high contamination it is imperative to use a shredder vs. a grinder. With a shaft speed of up to 44 RPM’s a Komptech Crambo or Terminator can handle the wide array of contamination that would otherwise cause serious damage to a high speed grinder. Preventing these costly repairs greatly reduces downtime and operation costs.
Our Komptech machines are born out of the waste industry and are specifically designed to process the wide range of material required while producing a desired product for recycling. High torque shredders also have advantages over grinders with less fuel consumption, no flying debris, and minimal dust.
The best shredder for grinding stringy material is a low speed shredder. The Komptech low speed high torque shredders are designed with reversing shafts that prevents wrapping of fibrous material such as palm and cedar. A high speed grinder’s mill often gets jammed with this material resulting in lost production.
