Arjes ‘future-proofs’ mobile shredder
By Steve Ducker05 December 2022
Germany-based industrial shredder manufacturer Arjes has described the successor model to its Impaktor 250 evo as a “significant evolutionary leap”.
In recent years, Arjes has delivered around 1,500 units of the Impaktor 250 mobile twin-shaft shredder, which evolved into the Impaktor 250 evo in 2018.
“Our goal is to keep the Impaktor model series competitive and future-proof despite increasing pressure from the competition,” said Arjes founder Norbert Hammel.
“Therefore, the Impaktor 250 product has already evolved into its successor model the Impaktor 250 evo in 2018 and now, four years later, it will receive another significant evolutionary leap with its successor version Impaktor 250 evo II.
Features of the Impaktor 250 evo II include a transport height of 255 cm (8 ft 4 in), 20 cm (8 in) lower than in the previous model.
Due to the improved quick-change cassette for the shafts, pressure is no longer exerted on the fastening bolts during the crushing process, as the full load is now transferred to the crushing table as well as the entire machine.
In addition, the new waveform plates are arranged as individual parts under the shafts and act as counter blades.
By inserting or removing them, the gap width may be modified and the final grain size adjusted, , while the semi-circular radiator grille above the discharge conveyor consists of a perforated grid, which provides more intake volume.
The company adds: “In general, the new Impaktor 250 evo II successor version is designed in such a way that all wearing parts can be easily replaced, refurbished, or reused several times, resulting in significant cost savings in both manufacturing and maintenance”
