Austria-headed international technology group Andritz AG has announced that it has successfully completed the start-up of a Universal Shredder FRP in the Kinnarps AB furniture production plant in Kinnarp, Sweden.
Founded in 1942, Kinnarps AB is a leading European supplier of complete interior design solutions for offices, schools and health care, with operations in 40 countries. A family-owned company with manufacturing facilities in Sweden, the entire value chain is characterized by high quality and low environmental impact – from raw materials to finished solutions.
According to Andritz. its Universal Shredder FRP, type 2000P, is capable of processing up to four tonnes of wood waste per hour from the furniture production plant. After processing, this waste is finally used as biomass to generate district heating for the entire Kinnarp area.
The FRP is a powerful single-shaft shredder with a large cutting surface area and unique cutting geometry that enables one-step processing of waste as well as the removal of metal parts. The cutting system consists of overlapping knives to ensure a uniform breakdown of materials and consistent particle sizes.
The new FRP2000P replaces a pre-shredder and a hammer mill as the customer was previously forced to shred the wood waste in a two-step process. The scope of delivery also included the supply of the input hopper and the discharge screw conveyor.
