Lefort America, Sunrise, Florida, has announced the commissioning of a shear at Tervita, a leading environmental solutions provider with corporate offices in Calgary, Alberta. The shear, a Lefort SH1100A, was installed at the company’s Red Deer facility in Alberta.
Tervita operates four scrap metal centers: two in British Columbia and two in Alberta.
Lefort’s stationary SH1100A is designed to shear lightweight sheet metal and standard demolition scrap. The commissioning of the machine was completed in March 2018. Jon Miller, from Lefort America, and two Lefort engineers traveled to Red Deer to install and commission the machine, assuring that all the components and systems of the shear are properly set up according to Tervita’s needs.
Tervita’s machine was equipped with a Caterpillar Tier 4 final C13 engine rated at 475 horsepower, an 8-meter box, remote control and Lefort’s First Class operator’s cabin. The SH1100 features 1,100 tons of shearing force and a 200-ton pusher ram for best in class densification, the company says.
