UNTHA UK is one of the newest members to join the Wood Recyclers Association.
UNTHA is no stranger to the world of wood recycling, with the company’s Austrian-engineered shredding technology having helped salvage ‘waste’ wood for remanufacturing and other reuse routes for decades.
The compact UNTHA LR wood shredder, for instance, has long proven a popular machine for joiners, carpenters and sawmill operators looking to process a variety of wood streams including pallets, solid logs, chipboard, veneer and MDF.
But as UNTHA’s world-renowned XR waste shredder continues to transform alternative fuel production operations around the globe, UNTHA has further penetrated the wood market. Available as a static or mobile machine, this high-performance shredder delivers on-specification biomass production in a single step, with minimal energy consumption, low fines, low noise, low wear and easy maintenance. This all translates into impressive plant yield, low whole life running costs, uncompromised safety and maximum margins.
Commenting on joining the WRA, managing director Marcus Brew said: “We’ve challenged the norm in what is widely considered a dangerous, expensive and often high-hazard waste shredding sector. We’ve invested heavily in high torque, slow speed, electric-driven equipment, which boasts impressive throughputs, in-built fire suppression technology, more uptime, less dust and better fuel quality than traditional competitor machinery.
“Crapper & Sons, for example, uses our XR shredder to transform 30 tonnes of wood waste per hour into a P63- specification biomass fuel, with less than 6% <10mm fines. The product is sold to board mills and biomass plants across the country, and more than £3000 of revenue is generated per week from the sale of clean metals extracted directly from the magnet belt.
“That same client is also now able to manufacture a higher quality, on-specification biomass fuel, with only one shredder not two, and with 20% more uptime. But we’re pleased to say, this is not an isolated case – these are the type of results we promise for many organisations. And if we don’t think they’re feasible, we’ll be honest about how we think you should progress.”
Capable of achieving a variety of output briefs, UNTHA UK’s wood shredding technology can process down to P63, P100, G30 and G50 specifications, and more.
