Everything you need to know about the maintenance of the industrial shredders
CAMEC industrial shredders are designed to respond in a personalized way to the customer needs and to work efficiently both in the short and long term. In order to make it possible, however, it is important to carry out periodic ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, necessary for the machine to always operate optimally and to extend its useful life.
Ordinary maintenance is based on a series of interventions (the oil level checking, the cleanliness of the grinding chamber checking, the integrity of the blades checking and their correct lock …), necessary to check that the machine is operating regularly and there are no problematic situations that could, over the time, damage the shredder.
Extraordinary maintenance, on the other hand, is necessary to extend the life of the shredder blades and to make them perform over the time: the blades, indeed, undergo a natural wear process which in the long run decreases their productivity. For the shredder, to work efficiently, it is necessary to check the blades periodically, sharpening them to ensure that their edge is sharp and not rounded. This operation must be carried out on all the blades of the shredder; therefore a single-rotor will require a faster intervention than that necessary for the extraordinary maintenance of a two-shaft or four-shaft shredder.
To facilitate ordinary and extraordinary maintenance interventions, CAMEC shredders are equipped with hydraulic and automatic openings of the access compartments for the maintenance: this makes interventions significantly faster and easier, allowing to halve machine downtime.
To regularly carry out the maintenance interventions necessary to extend the life of the machines, Camec offers its customers its Ordinary Maintenance service: thanks to a series of checking appointments carried out at regular intervals at the customer’s premises, the shredder will always be in optimal conditions and will always be able to work at its best. If, on the other hand, the customer deems necessary a more radical intervention, he can request an Extraordinary Maintenance intervention, which will be carried out directly by Camec staff and which will significantly improve the functionality of the shredder.
