What the DFR?

Weld On DFR Tooth

Now is a great time to pay a little attention to your double feed roll (DFR). 

Your feeding device is one of the most important productivity factors in your scrap metal shredding system. The feeder is tasked with adding feed stock to the shredder at a controlled rate, both pushing it in and holding it back. 

It cannot be effective without traction aides on the roller surface. Lateral bars and teeth welded to the rolls grab and move material and have sharp edges to assist. Edges are key. Rounded off lateral grab bars and teeth just don’t work as well.

Ideally, you have replacement feed rollers on the ground, ready to swap in place or have a slick one piece cast roller you can replace.  Many DFR units do not. You may not have the time for a large scale DFR renewal.

Enter the K2 Weld on Tooth.

You can renew in place replacing lateral bars and adding weld on teeth to the feed roll.  Adding them over a few maintenance shifts can give you the surfaces and edges you need to grab and hold tin, bales, and loose scrap, getting your feed rate closer to new. 

Fight less on the feed ramp, feed more in the shredder.  Give us a call for a set.

Weld on Teeth for Your Feeder

Tom Stanek

K2 Castings’ wear parts line includes weld on teeth for your scrap metal shredder’s double feed roll (DFR). 

Maintain a good tooth profile on your DFR rolls to keep your feeder effective and productivity up.  Bars and AR Plate teeth work fine, but the edges wear down faster than you’d like.  Our weld on teeth provide a strong stable profile.  Once welded in place, you can add easily replaceable standard square stock to the tip so you can maintain sharp edges. 

The profile and edges keep tin and logs moving in, and help hold auto bodies and long stock for a controlled feed into your shredder. Try our DFR teeth. You’ll notice the difference. Contact us today.
