Benefits
 
Truly muscular and a real power house, the Jain Hydraulics shredder plants consist of the Main Shredder machine, Pre-Sorting Conveyors, Input / Output Conveyors, Dust collectors, Magnetic separation system, Non-Ferrous Sorting System, Trommel, Control room etc. The Shredder machine is the main part of the scrap processing plant. The in-feed scrap is fragmented here by special alloy steel made hammers striking with very high torque & continuously compressing it until it passes through the grate opening provided at the bottom structure of the unit. The shredder machine mainly consists of five parts:
  • Feeding mouth (hopper)
  • Main body
  • Rotor
  • Sheave / Grate
  • Dust outlet
Feeding mouth (hopper)
The feeding mouth of the main shredder plant is kept large enough to digest sufficient quantity of scrap at a time. It has a taper plate at a very beginning to allow the material move directly into the stomach of the shredder. The mouth opening of the shredder is kept wider than the input conveyor so that the scrap easily passes through it. Likewise, the rotor assembly inside the shredder body is wider than the shredder mouth opening so as to allow effective processing of the scrap. The feeding mouth is set at such an angle that the scrap enters the shredder stomach directly thereby avoiding the “Hammer Wall Effect”, i.e. the bouncing of scrap on the top of the hammer circle.  
Main body
The main body of the shredder is made out of thick cold rolled mild steel plates.  The structure is reinforced with heavy ribs & stiffeners because being the most important part of the shredder machine, this is where the iron scrap rotates, shreds, gets thrown at speeds as high as 600-800 rpm by the hammers striking the scrap with high torque. Further, it also carries the weight of the entire rotor assembly. This complete structure is mounted on thick foundation plate. The foundation plate carries the entire load of the machine & the vibration effects, and transfers them to the RCC foundation. The base plate is tied to the foundation by thick bolts.
Rotor
The Rotor consists of circular supporting plates known as Discs, Hammers, Bearing blocks, Flywheels, Belt Pulley and the Main Driving Shaft. The main driving shaft is forged from thick alloy steel round duly tested on which the discs are mounted. These discs are placed on hardened bushes and are attached by tie-rods. Every part is duly machined and weight balanced with double roller taper bearings provided as per the requirement for smooth operation of the machine. The hammers are manufactured out of costly, special alloy steel cold rolled castings containing 11-14% Mn, 1.0-1.3% C, Si, P & S in the required proportions as these are very essential part
of the machine. The Hammers are connected to the rotor through axles called hammer pins. The hammers are placed around the rotor in balanced positions. The discs do not take any direct blows which instead were taken by the hammers as they do their work on the anvil, thus reducing the wear and cost of maintenance. The disc design also is convenient for automatic welding for hard surfacing during maintenance periods. As the discs rotate, the hammers extend from the rotor due to inertia. When they hit a piece of scrap, the energy is transferred from the hammer to the scrap. If the scrap piece is not immediately fragmented, then the hammer is deflected backwards. It might even bounce all the way around 360 degrees but will always return to the initial position. The shredder housing contains the flying pieces of scrap and efficiently directs these pieces to the grate areas. The rate at which the scrap is fed inside the machine is in proportion with the load on the main driving motor. This leads to the controlled amount of scrap in the shredding chamber and the stress on the hammermill.
Sheave
The sheave (grate) is also an essential part of the machine. It is placed below the rotor where the scrap shreds. The sheave is made out of the same quality of steel used that is for the hammers. The sheave opening is kept just enough to maintain the required production levels with adequate density of the shredded scrap.
Dust outlet
Since, lot of rust, dust & colour contents blow up at the time of shredding, a suitable outlet is required. Therefore we have provided one big outlet at the top of shredder and another on the opposite side of the feeding hopper for their easy outflow. Further, a taper mesh on which the material shall pass is provided outside the machine so that the dust is re-collected under it.

Dust Collector Cyclone
The Jain Hydraulics dust collector consist of a special material handling blower, motor, bag tree with collection bag and filter. The material handling blower uses a material handling impeller. It is made fairly self cleaning, letting chips and strings slide off instead of getting trapped. The impeller turns in a spiral shaped blower housing that needs to be very smooth to minimize the disruption of airflow. The blower housing outlet then directs the collected air and chips into a bag tree where it spins in a centre separation ring. Thus, all the small & large dust particles coming out of the shredder machine enter the cyclone thereby leaving the environment clean.
Other than the main machine, the Jain Hydraulics shredder plants also consist of the following as its integral part: 
Feeding conveyor
material slip. The conveyor consists of rubber cotton mix conveyor belt, walk way along the conveyor belt up to the mouth of shredder for any type of maintenance, electric motor and gear box.
Magnetic Separation System
An output conveyor is provided with the machine which collects all the shredded scrap that comes out of the machine. This conveyor then drops the scrap on the second magnetic drum conveyor placed in line where the ferrous scrap is segregated and all the other non-ferrous scrap moves to the third conveyor.
Non-Ferrous Sorting System
Based on requirement, Jain Hydraulics also supplies non-ferrous sorting systems with its shredder plants. These eddy current separators extract various non-ferrous metals, once the magnetic separation is done. Further, Jain Hydraulics can also provide X-ray sorting system to segregate light & heavy non-ferrous metals. This makes possible to separate aluminium & magnesium from a fraction rich in heavy metals such as copper, bronze, zinc & lead.
