Space-saving and available quickly
EZB uses a pre-owned Komptech Terminator. Tobias Zurfluh has long thought highly of the Terminator. This single-shaft shredder is ideal for combustible waste. EZB chose the used machine partly because of its fast availability, and partly because of its price, which was substantially lower than for a new machine. Zurfluh likes the stationary electric version for its lower energy costs compared to a diesel machine, and for its very compact dimensions.
The configuration with separate drive unit, which allows the drive to be placed in a closed chamber underneath the machine, was a key criterion, since space is at a premium at the disposal site. “Although it was a used machine, Komptech was able to deliver a custom solution with reversible discharge conveyor and long ejection conveyor,” says Zurfluh of the procurement of the pre-owned Terminator, and adds, “We didn’t want to interfere with daily operations more than necessary, so we kept the installation time as short as we could. It meant some long days, but ultimately we were able to stay within the allotted time window.”
