High solids concentration

ShearClean attrition cells are designed to operate at 80% solids concentration for maximum scrubbing efficiency and a higher specific capacity. This high concentration maximizes material on material impact for unrivaled scrubbing performance.

Built to last

The patented ShearClean attrition cells are packed with features and design innovations which ensure your machine will stand the test of time.

In-line gearbox

The in-line configuration of the ShearClean gearbox eliminates cantilever load to maximize the working life of your attrition cells.

Performance & Efficiency

Consistent material scrubbing

Paddle design increases attrition towards the tank periphery ensuring consistent scrubbing for all your material and maximizes material on material impact for the most efficient scrubbing performance.

Other design features include:

Accurate concentration control for efficient and consistent scrubbing.

Patent pending automatic flush system to maximize cell efficiency.

Adjustable retention time allows for variations in feed to be easily accommodated.

A small number of constituent parts – individual cells and shaft assembly – for rapid deployment.

Soft start reduces power requirement at start up and extends motor life by reducing load stress.

ShearClean utilizes 30kW motors where others require 50kW to enable start up under full load.

Safety first

A safer workforce is a happier & more productive workforce. That is why the ShearClean is designed to minimize the time spent on essential plant maintenance.

Easy maintenance access

Inspection hatches on individual cells to allow for ease of visual inspection and access.
