The DGR Large Diameter Pipe Shredder is specially designed for handling large diameter pipes (up to 1200mm diameter) without any need for precutting. The DGR rotor diameters range from 800mm to 1500mm and the standard hopper can accept lengths up to 6m. The concave ground, aggressive 4-way rotating knives are mounted in the grooves of the profiled rotor with special knife holders. The DGR shredder range can also be used to shred bundles of small diameter pipes and profiles, lumps, stacked wheelie bins, buckets & pallets, etc.
The hydraulically operated ram feeds the material horizontally in the rotor’s cutting chamber by load-related controls. The hydraulic system is equipped with high-pressure valves and volumetric flow controls which can be set according to the requirements of the input material.
Extremely robust pedestal bearing housings are mounted outside the machine and separate to the cutting chamber to prevent dust and dirt penetrating into the oversized bearings. This ensures a long service life and minimum service and maintenance.
Power is transmitted from the motor by a drive belt via an oversized gearbox which is located on the shaft end on one end of the rotor.
A safety switch prevents machine startup when the front panel is open and the machine features emergency stop buttons on the machine body and control panel.
