Powered by a 493HP Scania DC13 engine, the new TBG 530T has been “expertly designed to give operators unrivaled performance, ease of maintenance, and superb fuel efficiency,” and while extremely versatile, it is particularly suited to waste wood processing and green waste shredding the company says.
The TBG 530T enhances our high-speed shredder offering and allows our product range to further meet operators’ needs. Inspired by the successful TBG 630, the TBG 530T has been purposefully engineered to maintain the same key features in a smaller package. Easy to operate with excellent serviceability we are proud to have it in our portfolio and look forward to it dominating the market, said Tony Devlin, Business Lines Director for Terex Ecotec.
With a rapid setup time, the TBG 530T is ready to work in a matter of minutes with no tooling required. The open-fronted feeder enables the TBG 530T to be fed quickly and easily from the rear.
The intelligently controlled feed system, comprising heavy-duty drag chains and an aggressive feed wheel with unique lift/downward assist, ensures optimum material flow resulting in class-leading performance.
Direct drive swinging hammer rotor
At the heart of the machine is the 1 100 mm diameter x 1 490 mm wide swinging-hammer rotor. This robust, direct-drive rotor rotates at 1 000 RPM and incorporates 30 up-swinging hammers.
A wide selection of hammer designs and interchangeable screens are available allowing the machine to be configured to suit the ever-changing product requirements.
The TBG 530T also benefits from the added protection of a screen kickback system. Should an unshreddable object enter the shredding chamber the screen will release allowing the material to quickly pass through, reducing the risk of accidental damage.
The processed material is removed from the machine via a modular product conveyor with a discharge height of 4.6m. This conveyor also lowers to ground level for inspection and maintenance. An optional overband magnet with hydraulic height adjustment can be fitted to remove ferrous metal from the product.
Easy service access
Whether performing daily checks or carrying out maintenance, the TBG 530T offers easy service access to all key areas of the machine. The electric/hydraulic raise/lower of the screen and interlocked chamber access door allows the rotor and anvil to be inspected with ease.
The TBG 530T comes fitted as standard with an industry-leading T-Link telematics solution designed to improve productivity, efficiency, and profitability for the customer.
Manufacturing of this latest high-speed shredder will take place at Terex Campsie, a dedicated state-of-the-art facility located in Dungannon, Northern Ireland (NI) that will support the ongoing growth and development of Terex Ecotec’s ever-expanding product portfolio.
