6 Months On - Haas Tyron 2500 Pre-Shredder from Matpro

Six months ago our friends over at Matpro Machinery installed a brand new Tyron 2500 Pre-Crusher at our Sheffield site, now they're back to see how it handled our fast paced operations and to catch up with our Managing Director, Jamie Plevin.

Why did Plevin Sheffield require a new shredder?

“The Hammel shredder that we had previously was nearing 10,000 hours and had the potential to start to become a costly machine to keep running.”

What drew you to the Haas Tyron 2500?

“We were drawn to the Haas Tyron as we needed a minimum throughput of 60 tph which the 2500 was easily able to achieve.”

Are there any particular features that were important to you?

“The large infeed hopper of the Haas Tyron 2500 was of particular importance to fit with our operational processes. The engine telematics data was also important, as this can build a clearer picture of not only machine performance but also our process efficiencies.”

How has the Haas Tyron 2500 helped improve your processes?

“The Haas produces a consistent particle size. This is very important when feeding into our Vecoplan line to produce our end products.”

Would you recommend Matpro, and why?

“Yes, they are very helpful and have a great deal of operational knowledge due to them running Haas shredders in the CRJ hire fleet. “

(CRJ Services are the hiring side of the CRJ/Matpro partnership www.crjservices.co.uk.)

Would you recommend the Haas Tyron 2500, and why?

“Yes, I would definitely recommend the Haas Tyron 2500, it’s a reliable heavy-duty shredder with a large throughput capacity.”
