Used for general recycling in the post-consumer waste and wood industry
V Big Volume Shredders Advantages
- 35% more internal volume compared to the G series
- Internal hydraulic pusher
- Variable faster pusher movement
- Smaller footprint compared to traditional shredders with horizontal pushers
- Closed cutting chamber to avoid material spillage
- All advantages of the G series
The V series shredders are single shaft shredders with a large internal volume. The redesigned hydraulic pusher system creates about 35% more space in the cutting chamber while increasing the power and speed of the ram itself. The machines are equipped with a 457 mm diameter Virtus Equipment E rotor with widths ranging from 1200 to 2000 mm. As on the G machines the rotor is driven via an oversized gearbox. The completely closed welded steel housing increases the stability and avoids material spillage. The V inherits all of the advantages of the Virtus Equipment knife and knife holder design as well as standard features such as outboard bearings, hydraulic screen cradle, it’s easy maintainability and advanced controls.
The V shredders have been designed with big volume parts such as IBCs, pallets, big barrels and large scale biomass material. While it can be used for in-house recycling operations, it is also versatile enough to be used for general recycling in the post-consumer waste and wood industry. Like all Virtus Equipment shredders the W can be equipped with a wear package for processing of highly abrasive or filled materials.
The shredders use concave ground square knives, producing high quality output. The cutters can be turned after a side is worn out.
All Virtus Equipment shredders are equipped with our E-style flat rotor. The knives are fixed in special knife holders fitted in machined pockets. Optional weld on hard facing is available for abrasive applications.
The internal ram design on the V series allows the cutting chamber volume to be increased while keeping a small footprint. Making the V ideal for shredding of big volume parts.
