LINZ goes mobile with a Lindner Miura 1500 DK tracked twin-shaft shredder
Already in 2017, the Austrian waste management company LINZ AG was one of the first clients to start up the then-brand-new Lindner Miura 1500 shredder at its waste treatment facility in Linz’s Gaisbergerstrasse. The high performance and quality of the shredder were so impressive that it soon led to another order from compatriot Lindner Recyclingtech GmBH. This time LINZ opted for a Miura 1500 shredder on tracks – the recently launched Lindner Miura 1500 DK.
With over 3 000 people working for the Austrian company, LINZ AG is one of the largest multi-utility providers in this industrial region along the River Danube. LINZ AG’s tasks include the supply of energy and drinking water, the provision of telecommunications solutions, public transport, and the management of wastewater and waste.
The company has been relying on Lindner’s equipment for its waste management and recycling since 2010. What began with several of Lindner’s secondary shredders from the Komet series has now grown into a complete set with mobile primary shredders from the Miura series.
In addition to the new tracked chassis version, the latest Miura 1500 sports powerful and economical Scania Euro-5 engines and highly efficient hydraulic components to ensure maximum productivity in mobile twin-shaft shredding.
Versatility and flexibility key
In the end, the deciding factor was the machines’ high flexibility. With Lindner’s FX fast exchange system, the cutting unit can be changed on-site in a minimum amount of time and adapted to suit different shredding needs – from special shafts for shredding waste wood to obtain standardised particle sizes for energy recovery to particularly robust tools for mixed construction waste.
As a regional waste management company in an industrial region, we have to process a wide variety of materials. In addition to MSW and bulky waste, we also process a great deal of construction and industrial (C&I) waste. With the Miura shredder, the great advantage is that we can react very quickly to the most varied input materials of different grades. As we often have to process tough materials with non-shreddable, robustness is, of course, also crucial. That’s where the Miura shredder truly outshone the competition. For our latest purchase, we decided on the new crawler-tracked version. This gives us the added advantage that we can maneuver the machine comfortably without having to have additional equipment on-site, explained Franz Grottenthaler, Operations Manager at LINZ.
