Very low operating costs
The main principle of the Nederman crushers is to allow the swarf to be ground against each other – without hammering or cutting. This principle means very small demand for energy and very little wear, e.g. KB49 gives 8 tons/hr at 45 kW (60 hp).
The crushers accept most types of material irrespective of shape. They can be charged intermittently by a grab, hoist, fork lift or continuously by a conveyor.
Unlike the hammer style crushers or shredders the Nederman crushers are not sensitive to large bundles of swarf or swarf balls. Even large swarf balls are handled with the small power of 5.5kW (7.3 hp).
Low noise level
The crusher operates normally at 82dB(A). This means that they are quiet and easy to install as they do not need to be enclosed or placed in special rooms.
