WILLIBALD Shark EP Shark 5500


A wide variety of materials can be processed as required by the innovative shredding systems of the EP series. In addition to the main field of application of composting, as well as the increasingly more important biomass, the sharks have also successfully established themselves in biogas substrate processing. Furthermore, the "Willibald sharks" are successfully used for bark and peat processing, as well as for the production of wood chips from residual and waste wood materials (e.g. pallets), for thermal recycling. Choosing the type of Shark to suit your needs will perfect the shredding result in line with your individual material requirements.
Particular attention is paid to the extended rubber conveyor belt in the EP 5500 Shark series. The increased discharge height enables optimum utilisation of limited space and direct loading of container vehicles. The intelligent buckling technology of the rubber discharge belt enables three quickly accessible basic positions of the discharge belt:

  • the transport position with a compact overall length of the machine of only 9.98m
  • the maintenance position with a unique accessibility for service and maintenance    work
  • the working position

The machine operators particularly emphasize the performance and outstanding service accessibility as well as the compact design of this series, which is available in three customized variants:

  • Shark I - for the finest results:  The Shark I is the ideal choice when exact fine grain is required.
  • Shark II - the all-round talent: Consistetly good results in almost all areas of application
  • Shark III - Master of biomass!
