The EC series are built for mid-sized grinder uptime and efficiency and can deliver engineered fibre commodities from a wide range of raw materials. Upgrades to the EC platform include a full-length roller bed collection conveyor, roller bed discharge conveyor, wear liners, and independent colorizer controls (optional). These upgrades result in even cleaner operation, simpler maintenance, and lower operating costs than before. The advantages of these upgrades become particularly evident in facilities that grind steady streams of green fibre.
