Traditionally voluminous parts such as IBCs, barrels and pallets required a big machine in order to be recycled. To solve this issue VIRTUS developed the V series of shredders featuring an internal hydraulic pusher which increases the internal volume without increasing the footprint.
The V Series shredders have been designed with big volume parts such as IBCs, pallets and big barrels in mind. While it can be used for in house recycling in big volume blow molding operations it is also versatile enough to be used for general recycling in the plastic and wood industry. Like all VIRTUS shredders the V Series can be equipped with a wear package for processing of highly abrasive or filled materials.
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 an 18” (457 mm) diameter VIRTUS E rotor with widths ranging from 47” to 79” (1200 to 2000 mm). As on the VIRTUS G Series shredders the rotor is driven via an oversized gearbox. The completely closed welded steel housing increases the stability and avoids material spillage. The V Series inherits all of the advantages of the VIRTUS knife and knife holder design as well as standard features such as outboard bearings, hydraulic screen cradle, its easy maintainability and advanced controls.
With more than 70 years of experience, VIRTUS is one of the leading manufacturers of high quality size reduction machinery. Covering a range of granulators starting from small slow speed granulators to versatile large heavy-duty granulators including small and compact granulators with integrated blower and soundproofing. Adding a complete line of shredders, VIRTUS recycling machines range in drive power from 2.2 kW up to 200 kW and cover the whole spectrum of plastics size reduction applications.
