Doppstadt (UK) Ltd finalises largest ever order for recycling equipment
Doppstadt (UK) Ltd, the Glasgow-based recycling equipment specialists, are in the final stages of securing the first UK order for a powerful two in one shredder. The customer, one of the leading wood recyclers in the UK, has already used Doppstadt shredders for a number of years, and the new machine, which represents a sizeable investment, is expected to allow the company more flexibility in the type of wood waste that can be accepted for recycling.
The DZ 750 Combi is unique in that it brings together both a low speed and a
high speed shredder, allowing bulky and heavily contaminated wood, such as
demolition timber, to be processed into woodchip suitable for recycling by
chipboard manufacturers. Fed into the slow speed unit, the waste wood is
shredded into manageable pieces and much of the ferrous contamination is
removed by an overband magnet. The material is then conveyed into the high
speed hammermill unit, where it is shredded more finely to suit the
particular market specification required by the operator and the rest of the
ferrous contamination is removed by a second overband magnet.
“This development shows that wood recycling in the UK is moving forward
rapidly,” says George Kehoe, sales director for Doppstadt (UK) Ltd. “The
sophisticated technology of the DZ 750 Combi shredder provides operators
with clear benefits, including increased flexibility in terms of the type of
material they can accept, higher throughputs, and a higher quality final
