Vogelsang X-Ripper VX186-520QD 15KW Motor

Application : Preparing Supermarket Waste for a Feed Reactor (Burning)
The Client wanted to feed supermarket waste direct from the collection point into their feed reactor. The waste to be handled was complete with packaging. This included fruit, vegetables, milk cartons, yoghurts and out of date ready meals. The requirement was for a machine that would handle all these products, emulsify and reduce them down to 4mm or below, after being put through a crusher for preliminary treatment, enabling the product to then be pumped directly into the feed reactor.
Vogelsang successfully trialed an X-Ripper with the final installation being set up using the VX 186-520QD to enable the operation to run at 20m/3 per hour. The hopper on the X-Ripper was re-designed to provide a more upright position, preventing bridging of the material and was fed by a conveyor to provide an even and steady flow. On the discharge side, a Wykes piston pump was placed immediately underneath the X-Ripper and was gravity fed, delivering the product over a distance of 120 meters into the feed reactor. The X-Ripper is controlled from a Vogelsang panel and comes complete with auto-reverse to clear jamming.
