Large amounts of production waste are generated during paper manufacture. Wire clips, staples, nails, hooks, adhesive tapes, plastic tapes, cords and other foreign matter such as foil residues are bundled in loose rejects and pulper plaits. With the right shredding technology, this pulper waste can be made usable. A industrial recycling company uses double-shaft shredder from GEP ECOTECH in its production facilities in South Korea. The shredded residues are used as a substitute fuel to generate energy.
The GEP ECOTECH shredder shred more than 100 tons of residues every day. They have two 100 kW electric drive, with the help of which the pulper braids are reduced to a grain size of <60 mm. The rotor knives are in daily use and, based on experience, last longer than specified by the manufacturer.
As a company that has worked in the recycling field in Korea for many years, they have cooperated with many shredder manufacturers. As one of the company's decision-makers,Tibus finally decided to choose GEP ECOTECH. He draws a thoroughly positive conclusion about the partnership with GEP ECOTECH: "During my trips in China, I found that GEP ECOTECH is recommended above all for its enclosure & shaft technology and blade efficiency. This was the main reason for using GEP ECOTECH shredders in our production facilities. The efficient operation and the robust design characterize GEP ECOTECH here. In addition, the shredders have a low error rate and are easy to maintain.”
