Another wheelie successful installation

Rotajet Systems Limited have recently installed a ZCS1400 combined shredder and granulator into a new Contenur plant in Knowsley, Merseyside, that will be manufacturing wheelie bins up to 1100 litre in capacity.

Contenur UK is a spanish-owned firm and one of the largest manufacturers of waste containers in the market. They already have three other production plants across Europe in Spain, Poland and Brazil and the Knowsley plant will be their first waste container manufacturing site in the UK. The 56,500 m2 factory will have the capacity to manufacture more than 600,000 containers a year

What is the ZCS1400 and how will it be used?

The ZCS1400, supplied by Amis, is a powerful shredder and granulator combination which makes light work of size reducing all types of plastics. This heavy duty machine will be essential for the new plant to size reduce waste wheelie bins down ready to regrind. The ZCS size reduction system combines a shredder with a granulator in one single system which saves space and allows more room for the processing of production waste. The system is fitted with metal rejection and double bag stands to make moving and using the product a simple and efficient operation.

Features and advantages of the ZCS1400:

  • The shredder part is equipped with a 400mm diameter E rotor using ZERMAs proven knife and knife holder design, driven by a high-torque gear drive, which in comparison to a direct drive also handles tougher input materials well.
  • The large material hopper and the powerful horizontal pusher allow processing of voluminous as well as heavier parts.
  • The lower part of the system consists of a 3-blade granulator rotor based on the GST series.
  • The shredder and granulator are matched to work together ideally and in conjunction with an advanced control system ensure smooth reliable operation.

Rotajet are thrilled to work with Contenur UK to help build this new and impressive waste container and are proud to offer flexible, efficient and sustainable solutions throughout the industry.
