The twin-shaft grinder that's changing the service and repair model
Twin-shaft grinders are known as the toughest solids reduction equipment available. They are praised for their ability to cut through tough solids and stringy waste. Everyone loves them. Well, except for the guys who service them. Unless you’re talking about the Vogelsang XRipper®.
Vogelsang develops solutions that are individually tailored to the technical requirements of each sector. Established products include the elastomer-coated rotary lobe pump, which was invented by Vogelsang in 1970 and has been continuously developed ever since. Today, for example, it is used in biogas plants and sewage treatment plants, on tankers in the agriculture sector, in vacuum disposal for trains, buses and ships, and in an ever increasing range of industries. With the invention of the dribble bar linkage and the precision distributor, Vogelsang has played a major role in modern liquid manure spreading technology.
