Precious Plastic Russia

13/02/2018 at 21:24

Hello everyone, friends. I’m from Rostov on the Don, Russia. We have a World Cup here in the summer) come to visit)
On the topic: I’m studying the issue of creating a shredder. Laser cut already ordered, it remains to pay. At once there was a question – if the steel is not stainless it will strongly affect the work?)
But the main problem for me is the engine. We simply do not have such. Now I search the Internet to find something more or less sane.
I will blog on youtube, just immediately warn – English I have bad, I will lead in Russian, but the subtitles will be)
See you soon!

Hey @drakula16 and welcome!

The difference with using or not using stainless steel is that stainless is a bit harder (not a big issue), and it will not rust (bigger issue if your material that you are shredding is wet).

The motor is usually the hard part, finding the right one to a good price.

The best is to find a motor with reducer that gives you about 60rpm +/- 10.

In my case I did find a motor, and a separate reducer.

You can also use a chain drive.

Good luck with your build, and keep us up to date 🙂

I think the motor is too fast, if you reduce 50% speed you will have 50% torque without change motor, in add the plastic will shredd better with nop hands needed (very very dangerous). I think you could change the blade orientations too.
If you will not find a motor I could ask here if is possible to send in russia but It will be expensive I think…about 100€ shipping.

Hi, yes the speed is big enough, but PP grinds at all without stopping. The lid is not particularly hampered – so while there is no need for a new engine), and in Russia there are still a few enterprises that make both electric motors and reducers)

Hello! While waiting for the heaters bought stickers to sort the plastic)
I ground some bottles and PET. But today a misfortune happened – the condenser for the engine was covered. Since I have 1 phase network without a capacitor, the motor will not work. Tomorrow I’m going to the market to buy a new condenser)
