Electric-powered grinding equipment offers many advantages over diesel models beyond the obvious savings on diesel fuel. Delivering unbeatable dependability and uptime, electric grinding equipment can significantly reduce operating and maintenance costs.
Lower Routine Maintenance & Operating Costs
Besides savings on diesel fuel, electric grinders eliminate the costs and downtime associated with maintaining a diesel engine, radiator, and clutch (or other power transfer system), including:
- Oil & filter replacement
- Coolant exchange
- Air filter replacement
- Clutch fluid & filter replacement (where applicable)
The reduced costs of routine operation and maintenance make electric grinders particularly popular for processing C & D, pallets & crates, and other grinding operations with steady flows of raw material to process under strict specifications.
Besides reduced routine maintenance and downtime, electric grinders offer considerable savings on long-term maintenance and operation. Electric motors typically do not require the type of major overhauls common for diesel engines. Rotochopper electric grinders frequently operate for thousands of hours with no need for major maintenance.
