A New Shredder for Swedish Kinnarps AB

The international supplier of complete interior design solutions for offices, schools and health care, Kinnarps AB, has bought a Universal Shredder FRP for its furniture production plant in Kinnarp, Sweden, from the international technology group Andritz.

The new machine is capable of shredding up to four tons of wood waste per hour from the furniture production plant, the provider underlined. After processing, the waste is used as biomass to generate district heating for the entire Kinnarp area.

The new FRP2000P replaces a pre-shredder and a hammer mill as the furniture manufacturer was previously forced to shred the wood waste in a two-step process. As reported by Andritz, 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 scope of delivery also included the supply of the input hopper and the discharge screw conveyor.
