The new generation of the XRipper twin-shaft shredder is designed to reduce the size of coarse matter that can clog pumps, pipes and fittings. In addition to shredding more evenly, new housing geometry allows for significantly higher throughput, which can be further increased with an optional add-on feature, says the company. Designed specifically for pipelines, the XRipper model XRP (photo) has the optimal type of construction for inline installation in sewage pipelines and other confined spaces, such as ducts. The easily accessible ripper rotors and cartridge seals allow quick parts replacement. A version designed especially for channel installations, the XRC, is also available. — Hugo Vogelsang Maschinenbau GmbH, Essen, Germany
